How to Stream Workouts on Your TV


Streaming workouts from your home, hotel room, or office break room is the newest way to consume fitness. Some of the most popular excuses for missing workouts are lack of motivation, lack of time, lack of money, and – let’s face it – lack of convenience. The great thing about Get Healthy U TV is that it’s the answer to all of these!

Viewing the workouts on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop is pretty self-explanatory. All you need is a decent internet connection. But getting the workouts onto your big screen TV at home requires a little more know-how. Many of you have asked for assistance on how to stream us on your TVs so I put together a few tutorials on how to use some of the most popular connection options including an Apple TV, Chromecast, and HDMI cables.

How to Connect Apple AirPlay


To stream GHUTV videos with your Apple TV device, you can use Apple AirPlay. Equipment needed for Apple AirPlay includes:

  • TV with HDMI ports
  • HDMI cable
  • Apple TV (generation 2, 3, or 4)
  • An Apple device (tablet, laptop, iPhone etc.)

First connect your Apple TV to your television with an HDMI cable. Then, on your Apple device, select the AirPlay icon on the menu bar. Under “Connect to AirPlay Display,” choose your Apple TV. The AirPlay icon will turn blue, and your desktop or screen will be displayed on your television. Start your video, and click on full screen mode to make the video larger on your TV. Now you’re ready to work out!

When you are finished and no longer want to use the AirPlay display, select the AirPlay icon again and click on “Disconnect AirPlay Display.” Or, you can press the menu button on your Apple TV remote. If you encounter any problems with AirPlay, you can visit Apple’s Support page for troubleshooting tips.

How to Connect Google Chromecast


If you don’t use Apple devices, another option is to use a Google Chromecast device to stream your GHUTV videos. Equipment needed for Chromecast streaming includes:

  • TV with HDMI ports
  • Chromecast device
  • A mobile device or laptop with Google Chrome browser

To use Chromecast, you must first have the add-on installed on your Google Chrome browser. (Chrome is a free browser that can be downloaded here.) Visit the Chromecast Setup page to get a walkthrough on setting up the Google Cast add-on. After you have done this, pull up the GHUTV video you wish to watch on your Google Chrome browser. Then, click on the Google Cast icon (located to the right of the address bar) and choose to cast this tab to your Chromecast device. When the device is selected, click “Cast this Tab” and your video will be ready for you!

You can also easily use a Chromecast device with your smartphone or tablet to stream to your TV. If you have an iPhone or iPad, follow these instructions:

  • Step 1: Download the Video and TV Cast Browser for Chromecast app from the iOS App Store.
  • Step 2: Open the app and enter or paste the URL to your video in the browser’s address bar.
  • Step 3: Wait some seconds until the video link is recognized and shown at the bottom below the browser. (You might need to start playing the video to get it recognized.)
  • Step 4: Select “Tap Here to Cast” to send the video to your Chromecast.

If you have an Android phone or tablet, follow these instructions:

  • Step 1: Download the Google Cast app from the Google Play store.
  • Step 2: Open the app and select “Cast Screen” from the menu.
  • Step 3: Connect to your Chromecast by selecting your device on the menu that appears.
  • Step 4: Now anything that appears on your phone or tablet will appear on your TV, including any video you have playing.

How to Connect with HDMI


If you don’t have a smartphone or tablet but still want to stream your videos, a good option to use is an HDMI connection. This simply hooks up your computer to your TV. Equipment needed to stream with an HDMI connection includes:

  • TV with HDMI ports
  • HDMI cable
  • A laptop with HDMI ports
  • NOTE: Apple laptops (and some Microsoft laptops) do not have HDMI ports. The have what are called mini display ports. Check your device first, and see if you need to purchase a mini display port to HDMI adapter cable.

When you have all your necessary equipment, plug one end of your HDMI cable into your television’s HDMI port (it will be on the back of your TV). Plug the other end into your laptop’s HDMI port, or your mini display port to HDMI adapter cable. Once your TV and laptop are connected, change your TV input settings to your HDMI channel (usually named HDMI1 or HDMI2). Now you’re ready to get moving!

Most of the equipment listed here, including HDMI and adapter cables, Apple AirPlay, and Chromecast, can be purchased at any big box store or tech retailer like Best Buy. Hint: you can use these same techniques to stream other services like Netflix and Amazon Prime to your TV!

I look forward to working out with you at home!

–Chris

    Hi Chris, I’m considering subscribing to your premium workouts. However, I use a PlayStation 3 to play dvd, bluerays, and stream YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, and Netflix. I also have an iPhone 6 and I use it, thru the YouTube app, as a remote to search and play videos. Are your videos available to stream on YouTube? or maybe another app on the PlayStation?

    Hi! I have the Amazon Fire Stick. Do you have any suggestions on how to stream Get Healthy U by using that or will I need the HDMI set up? I do not have a smart tv at this time.

      It should work just like google chromecast but on supported devices
      You can mirror your display on most phones or tablets that support Miracast. Some of these devices include:
      · Fire phone
      · Fire HDX tablets
      · Fire HD 8 (5th Generation)
      · Fire HD 10 (5th Generation)
      · Devices running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) or higher (performance may vary).

        I have the same question as Cynthia’s above, but am little tech-challenged so don’t understand the answer that was given. I have the Amazon Fire Stick – in very simple terms, how do I access Get Healthy U on my tv? Have never heard of Miracast and don’t know what is meant by “mirror display on most phones or tablets”
        Thanks in advance for your help!
