Cheap DVD’s

Follow Me on PinterestPin It

We live in the age of technology where you can copy / rip / burn practically anything.  And it’s easy to re-sell (illegal, yes, but easy nonetheless) these generic versions of beachbody’s line of workouts such as, P90X or Insanity.  I should know, because my first copy of P90X was a copy.  Was it cheaper? Yes.  Was the quality good? No.  The picture was fuzzy and after a while the DVD’s would start to skip or freeze right in the middle of my workout.  When I bought Insanity, 2 of the workouts didn’t even work at all and you can forget about calling for replacements.

It’s a huge problem.  Knockoff DVD’s. They are EVERYWHERE! They are cheaper than getting your program through Beachbody, no doubt! You can find them on eBay, Amazon, Craigslist, etc. And they don’t advertise them as being fake — as a matter of fact both my copies of P90x and Insanity were listed as being shipped from Atlanta and New Jersey.  When the packages arrived I realized that they had both been shipped from overseas.  Needless to say I decided it was time to spend the extra money and buy the real dvd’s and the 100% guarantee from Beachbody.   

But is getting the fake DVD’s for P90X or Insanity or any of these other programs for half-price really worth it?  Consider the following conversation I’ve had OFTEN with friends of mine who went the eBay / Craigslist route:

P90X-er: “My DVD stops half way through and some want play at all. What can I do?”

Coach Greene: “Call Beachbody and they will send you a new one for free!”

P90X-er: “I didn’t get it from Beachbody. I got it off eBay.”

Coach Greene: “Sorry! You’ll need to buy another set or contact the seller.”

P90X-er: “They won’t return my emails.” or my favorite because this happened to me: “When I went back to the site to contact the seller, Ebay said the site was no longer available”.

I hate having that conversation, especially with friends who I know worked hard to scrap up the money just to buy the cheap version and know they have nothing.  It happens all the time! There are other twists, like the very common“The Insanity exercises are out-of-order” (which is because Beachbody built-in encryption, so when they get copied they will get jumbled in some spots), “The DVD’s skip”, etc., but it’s always the same result. If you bought a pirated copy of the DVD’s, you didn’t get a “good deal”. You paid $50 or $80 or whatever for burned DVD’s that cost the seller a total of probably $5 to make.  Here’s another problem you get no customer support no guide book and no nutrition guide (just so you know nutrition is 80% of your results) and then the buyer is lost, not knowing where to begin with nutrition or even what order to do the workouts in.  Plus, when they mess up, you either have to workout with no DVD or buy another set, which will end up costing you more than if you’d bought the real thing the first time!

The way I look at it, time is money, and you are going to spend over 90 hours doing these workouts in the next 90 days. That’s a lot of time! Isn’t it worth it to you to have the REAL DVD’s, the whole package of materials, and the customer support of Beachbody when you need it to be sure you get the most bang for your buck! I think so!

And on one final note, pirated DVD’s are ILLEGAL!  I get asked often if f I will copy the DVD’s for them.  I simply reply, “That’s ILLEGAL, I can’t do that.  I am committed to a program and a company that I WANT to support because they support me and everyone else looking to transform their health and fitness.  Beachbody is a winning company that invests in helping people all over the world and I’m not going to steal from them!  I hope you feel the same way!
