Meredith Corporation has launched Sweat TV, an online workout portal that features more than 200 exercise videos. Many of the videos come through Fitness magazine's existing video library, but content is included from Shape.com, FitStar, Grokker and POPSUGAR. According to a release, the workout videos allow users to target each body part, including abs, arms, and thighs; and workout type, including yoga, cardio and post-pregnancy. Each workout is divided into video “playlists” of individual workout moves, so users can jump to and replay specific sections for additional instruction.
“Workout videos are by far one of the most popular reasons consumers visit Fitnessmagazine.com,” says Melissa Inman, general manager of Fitnessmagazine.com and Shape.com. “So we saw building a destination site for workouts as a huge opportunity. Through SweatTV, we’ve curated an extensive library of videos so users can easily find the workout they’re looking for. And with 60 percent of our users accessing the site on mobile and 33 percent of video views taking place on mobile, we made it a priority to optimize the platform on those devices for on-the-go workouts when traveling, at the gym or at home.”Users can either become members or choose to get a 24-hour free workout experience after seeing a sponsored message.
