The initial questions after you login are directed at knowing your current fitness levels and goals, according to which you’ll be provided with recommended videos. This saves you a lot of time as you don’t have to scroll through to find what you need. 

The trainers and instructors are very motivating too so while you’re at home, all bored and demotivated, you have really good motivation that pushes you.
