When you think of Netflix, you might think of getting all cozy on your couch, grabbing some snacks and drinks, and binge-watch your favorite TV series. All of this sounds fun, but hardly healthy, but Netflix wants to change that perception by wanting to become your workout buddy through a little bit of DIY.


Launched as part of Netflix’s “Make It” program (the same platform that brought you the real-life Netflix and Chill button), basically this is a DIY project that wants to help keep you motivated during your workouts. Its description reads, “If committing to exercise was as easy as committing to Netflix, you’d probably have Daredevil’s abs by now.”

“Netflix personal trainer gives you that extra push, serving up motivational words from your favorite Netflix characters, right when you need them most. And if you’re watching during a workout, your coach will pause your show every time you stop moving.” However like we said this is a DIY project and it does involve a fair bit of tinkering.

The good news is that Netflix has uploaded the instructions and the list of necessary hardware that you’ll need to put it all together on its website. Exactly how many of you guys will actually bother remains to be seen, but if you’re looking for a fun little project, this could be worth checking out.
