Exercise TV doesn’t have too many additional features, but the ones they do have are fun and well thought out.

The site features fitness and healthy eating blogs by a nutrition expert, a fun guy who lost 150 pounds sweating to a cardioke video (a mix between cardio exercise and karaoke), an international natural movement expert and more. These blogs are insightful, humorous and a unique feature for a fitness website.

The Exercise TV community is a place where members can join groups, talk about problems, meet trainers, read success stories, share photos and more. This is a great place to socialize after a workout or to get tips on living a healthier lifestyle.

If you would like a site with more features, you may want to try demandFITNESS or Train With Me Online.
