My wife and I have a couple of Beachbody workout DVDs like PIYO, P90X3, CIZE, etc to keep fit, however, I get some trouble when I backup them to the hard drive. I assume that any at-home trainers that use Beachbody workout DVDs know that there are at least two different workout routines in each DVD, however, the DVD rippers in the market do not seem to know that, only picking up one title for one routine or even the wrong one, and you will always have to check titles before you rip the workout.
In this post, I’d like to share my ideas on how to rip Beachbody workout DVDs and CIZE will be taken as an example. It’s a general guide that is proven to work for PiYo, P90X3, and CIZE. And I believe it should also work for other Beachbody workout DVDs like Insanity, 21 Day Fix, 3 Week Yoga Retreat as well as others.
And the below screenshots are taken on my Windows, but the guide also applies to the macOS version as it is the same!
Beachbody Workout DVD Ripper for PC/Mac
Before I write this post I did some Google search and found one guide on how to rip the famous Beachbody workout P90X3 via Handbrake. If you are a Handbrake user and want to rip the DVD P90X3 for free, you can check it for details.
I am not a Handbrake fan, plus the fact Handbrake does not always work well for encrypted DVDs and crashes while encoding. I mainly use Leawo DVD Ripper for my DVD ripping. It is available for both PC and Mac users and works well on Apple Silicon Macs, and the previous Mac OS X.
Compared with Handbrake or MakeMKV, Leawo DVD Ripper perfectly supports protected DVDs from Disney as well as this going-to-rip CIZE from Beachbody. While Handbrake and MakeMKV only rip DVDs to MP4 or MKV, Leawo offers many more profiles such as AVI, MP4, MKV, WMV, M4V, and even the 3D formats. It supports more devices from Apple (iPhone/iPad/iPod/Apple TV), Samsung, Sony, and smart TVs. I’m sure it will fully meet your needs.
[IMPORTANT]Detecting the Real Title for Beachbody Workout DVDs
Detecting the right title for workout DVDs like CIZE, PiYo, P90X3, 21 Day Fix, Tai Cheng, etc is extremely important, because, as far as I can see, no DVD rippers are able to automatically detect the two titles and pick them up for you. In CIZE, there are two main workouts in two titles and a free bonus in another. So, I recommend you to follow the below guide and detect the real title before we rip Beachbody workout DVDs and CIZE will be the example here. I have one more general guide on how to detect the right title for movie DVDs, click the link to check it out.
Download VLC Media Player from the above download link, it will take you to the official download page, so it’s 100% clean and safe to go.
Step 1. Play the Workout
Click Media-Open Disc.
Choose the Disc device and Play to play the workout DVD:
Step 2. Play each Routine
Click each Routine to play:
Choose Music, which does not matter:
Bypass the 19 seconds show/ad until it starts playing the main routine:
Step 3. Check the title
Go Playback-Title to see which one is being played:
Then we need to go over again and play other routines and record the right title. So, there are the results:
|YOU GOT THIS||41|
|8 COUNT ABS||53|

Rip Beachbody Workout DVD to MP4/AVI/MKV on PC/Mac
Below is a detailed guide on how to use Leawo DVD Ripper to rip Beachbody workout DVD CIZE to MP4 and it also applies to other formats like MKV, AVI, etc. Screenshots are taken on Windows, but the Mac version works the same.

Step 1. Load Beachbody workout DVD
Choose DVD Ripper or go Convert tab on the main UI of Leawo Prof Media.
Load the DVD by clicking the Add Blu-ray DVD button like below:
Step 2. Custom Mode
I always recommend Main Mode for movie DVDs, but for TV shows and workout DVDs with multiple main titles or advanced users, I recommend Custom Mode. And we choose title 23, 41, and 53 for the two main routines as well as the bonus:
Custom Mode here in Leawo is also recommended for TV shows and BBC DVDs.

After you click OK in step 2, the three titles will be loaded and you can click the default MP4 Video to change or edit one output you need.
