Cathe on Demand is the streaming workout on demand service by Cathe Friedrich. Once you sign up for a membership you get access to a huge library of workouts created by Cathe Friedrich (all of them). I get a lot of questions from people who feel overwhelmed with how to navigate among features inside the on demand service so this post breaks down exactly how to use Cathe on Demand and Cathe Live.
The information below walks you through how to use your membership by signing in on a computer OR using the Cathe Live and/or Cathe on Demand app (there’s one for each service) because the dashboards and features are different depending on how you access your account.
I definitely recommend you try to use the apps first (they’re very straighforward). BUT it’s important to remember you can always login to your membership from a computer as well.
If you’re trying to find out how to sign up for Cathe Friedrich’s On-Demand services (Cathe Live or Cathe On Demand + Live) then start here:
How to Sign Up for Cathe Live or Cathe on Demand
When you sign up for a Cathe on Demand membership you have a choice between two different membership options. You can sign up for JUST Cathe Live or Cathe Live PLUS Cathe on Demand (which includes all of the videos she’s ever made). I’ve had the latter subscription for years and love it.
Cathe Live is the library of all of Cathe Friedrich’s live workouts done from her home gym in New Jersey.
You can do the workout with Cathe (live) on most Thursdays at 9 AM EST.
But you can access any of these routines (at any time) from your Cathe Live membership by going to Cathe’s home page and using the drop down menu to sign in to your account.
On the next page enter your User Name/Password and hit Login.
On the next screen you’ll see your account payment history.
Use the tabs at the top to navigate to Cathe Live.
This next screen is where you go to do the live workout with Cathe and her team as they do it on (most) Thursday mornings.
Scroll past the Live Stream box and you’ll see the library of all of Cathe’s live workouts.
The workouts are listed in chronological order with the most recent routine listed first.
Just select the workout you want and get started!
Use the Cathe Live App to find these workouts on your ipad or mobile device.
TIP-Cathe doesn’t always tell you what weight she’s picking up during the live routines. Use this reference page when you’re doing Cathe Live workouts to help you out. (Here’s a pdf copy of my Cathe Live Dumbbell Reference Guide.)
*I actually recommend that you use the Cathe Live and Cathe on Demand app to access the workouts (it’s easier) but I wanted to show you both options
The Cathe On Demand subscription gives you full access to the Cathe Live routines but you also get access to all of her video programs AND premix routines.
This is (hands down) the best deal.
There are a TON of workouts to choose from.
To use Cathe On Demand + Live go to Cathe’s home page and navigate to the login screen (the same way you find Cathe Live workouts).
On the next screen you’ll need to enter your username and password and hit Login.
From your My Account page use the Menu tabs to navigate to My Videos (or click on View Your On Demand Videos Now).
This will take you to the library with every live routine as well as every Cathe Friedrich video program.
All of these workouts are listed together in alphabetical order.
To find the premix routines (and to create your own premixes) you’ll use the Workout Blender tab (on a computer).
I recommend you watch the tutorial to help you figure out how to create your own Cathe Friedrich premix.
You can use the link above to find the tutorial on using the Workout Blender or find it yourself by clicking on ‘Streaming’ from the main menu and then select ‘Tutorials’.
You’ll need to scroll all the way down the page to find the videos for the Workout blender.
Here’s what you’ll see in the Quick Tour video:
You can also find those tutorial videos from the Workout Blender page:
Use the Cathe On Demand app to access your On Demand videos (on mobile or ipad). You’ll need to download the Cathe Live app AND the Cathe On Demand app if you have the membership that includes both libraries.
The app is very user-friendly and set up better than the online Workout Blender (that you use on your computer).
Heads Up: You cannot CREATE a premix workout on your ipad or mobile device (you can only do that on your computer).
But you CAN access them (your premix creations) using the On Demand app (just click on the ‘Shared Workouts’ tab at the bottom of the screen).
At the end of the day it’s MUCH EASIER to find the premix workouts using the app.
They’re found directly below the main workout inside the Cathe on Demand app.
To do On Demand routines and premix workouts. (These are all of the routines from every Cathe Friedrich program that’s she’s created and sold as a video.)
If you have a premix routine that you already created on your computer using the Workout Blender then you can view it on your Ipad from the ‘Shared Workouts’ tab.
But you need to have a Cathe On Demand subscription and use the Cathe On Demand app.
Yes! This means you can do all of the main workouts from any of Cathe’s DVD’s (without the app), but you won’t be able to get to the premix routines without going through the app.

I am unable to load my current values and I am unable to drag rotations across various days on the calendar. (I want to set Sunday as a rest day but the September calendar suggested by Cathe has a workout on that day. I am a new subscriber to Cathe on Deamnd + Cathe Live.
