Members area

Hi guys, I'm currently enjoying the site with a free trial and considering keep going with a silver membership, but the problem is that I don't actually see any content available only for members, because I tried to get access to all the tracks, sections and videos without an account and I could, and the site didn't show any limitation for the content, in fact, it was exactly as if I was logged with the free trial.

Where's the members area? Is there any? I will really appreciate an accurate answer because I need to take a look to the actual paid content to see if it's worth my money.

Thanks a lot.

While you can see all the content I don't think you will be able to access all of it without being a paying member.

edit: I misread and thought your trial was already over. When you are in the trial period you can access everything that a regular member could. When the trial is over you will still be able to see everything but most videos will prompt you to "sign up" if try to watch them.

Also if you have a trial membership then can access the content while signed in just like a paying member.

That's the idea of the free trial, you get to see what the site is like, no surprises later. I like it so far, and will probably subscribe.
