You’ve waited patiently to stream FitneesGlo classes on Roku and now your wait is over! If you are already a FitnessGlo member, you can now access every FitnessGlo class via Roku. To get started, you’ll want to add the FitnessGlo Roku app.
The app can be found in the Channel Store under New and also under Fitness and Outdoors.
To get it setup:
- Select the FitnessGlo app
- Select Add Channel
- Go to Channel
- Select a class you would like to take and, there you have it, your FitnessGlo class will play on Roku!
If your Roku device is not linked with FitnessGlo, login to your FitnessGlo account, then go to fitnessglo.com/roku and enter your activation code.
You can also access the Roku device link area in the Settings tab and select Link My Device under the Roku Device area.
Please note: If you do not have a FitnessGlo membership, you must sign up for an account with us at $12/month before you can access these classes on Roku. The Roku access is only for those who already have an account with FitnessGlo.
Now get linked up and get your Glo on!

Notice something new about the My Account area today? We launched several new site features today that will help you maintain a fitness schedule, organize your classes and maintain balance across your workouts. Who doesn’t need a little help with scheduling and balance these days?
Here’s what we launched and how you can make the most of these new features:
Tracking Cardio/Strength/Stretch Balance – Do you tend to focus on cardio and never get around to doing strength classes? Do you lift weights and skip cardio? Under Track Workouts we’ve added the ability to see how your weekly workouts are balanced across cardio, strength and stretching to ensure you can plan your week to get a good balance across each.
Creating Playlists – We’ve had several requests from FitnessGlo members to create a “playlist” of a few shorter classes that you can add to one list and hit play. It will play all classes in the order you select without you having to stop, find another class and hit play again and again. To add any class to a playlist, simply rollover the class with your mouse (just as you would to add it to your schedule) and you will see a Playlist + icon. Select that to begin. You can create a 60 minute workout from several FitnessGlo classes or you can create mini-workouts by theme or instructor.
Scheduling Classes – As you know, we launched the ability to schedule classes several weeks ago. You can now do a bit more with scheduling, including setting a class as a “routine” that repeats on selected days of the week. You can also see your Scheduled Classes by week, making it much easier to plan a week of workouts and get reminders about them. To set up your email reminders for classes you’ve scheduled, go to Settings and select how far in advance of a scheduled class you’d like to receive a reminder. We can all use a little nudge on those days when our lives are so busy we forget to take care of ourselves!
As you begin to use these new features, please let us know if you have any comments, questions or feedback on what else you’d like us to add to the site. We value your feedback and want to continually add features that you want to use so FitnessGlo becomes a community that truly supports you. As always, if you have any technical issues at all with the new features, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so our team can help you troubleshoot and get you Glo-ing right away.
Here’s to a new era of balance on FitnessGlo! Enjoy!

As with any new habit we hope to acquire and make part of our regular routine, writing it down is the key. Did you know we’ve created an easy way for you to “write down” your workouts?
Go to My Account on the site, select the Track Workouts tab and you’ll see a calendar that will help you track your workout progress. If you take a FitnessGlo class, it will automatically be added to your calendar. To add your other workouts, like walks in the park, an evening hike or a morning bike ride, you have the ability to “Add Workout” to log the date and duration of your workout.
If you workout up to 30 minutes a day, five days a week, your grey lotus flower will Glo green, letting you know you’re meeting your fitness goals.
Have you used this tool yet? If not, give it a try and let us know what you think. We hope it helps you meet your fitness goals one workout at a time!

We’ve got a variety of classes on FitnessGlo and you’ll probably notice one thing right away: our levels are different. We’re so committed to helping you get started with a realistic fitness program that our levels begin at…well…the very beginning. Our classes are also designed to build over time so after you spend time working through the classes at one level, you’ll have built a foundation that should help you move on to the next level.
Here’s a description of each level to give you an idea of where you might want to start:
- Getting Started - Entry level classes that focus on basic movements and introduces the correct function, form and posture for each. These classes are designed for someone who has not worked out in a long time or is completely new to fitness. Congratulations to you for Getting Started!
- On My Way - Classes typically include two to three move combinations per class and include an increase in weights as well as the introduction of balance drills. If you are not quite a beginner and find the Getting Started classes to be too easy for you, these classes could be your sweet spot!
- In the Groove - Integrated exercises, longer dance combination sequences and some moves with higher intensity, more focus on balance, as well as heavier weights. These classes are ideal for someone who has been doing Getting Started & On My Way classes for some time. If you’re ready to take on a new challenge, these classes could be for you.
- Good to Glo - After building up a base of regular Glo classes, you should be Good to Glo and these classes reflect a combination of all the foundational work you developed in the previous levels. Enjoy!
We are honored to help you begin your journey to feeling better and being healthier through regular exercise and movement. As you explore the site and the classes, let us know if you have questions or special requests. Hint: if you leave comments on classes you love, you’ll hear back from your teachers!
Hope you’re having a great week!
