What Exactly is PIYO?
If you follow my fitness journey or know much about Team Beachbody, you may have heard me mention Chalene Johnson before. Chalene is the creator of a couple of my all time favorite workouts Chalene Extreme and Turbofire. Turbofire is a high intensity,
cardio kickboxing, HIIT workout and Chalean Extreme
was a great workout to learn how to incorporate strength training into
The results were off the hook. I never had muscle definition
and tone in my life. So when Beachbody announced that they will be
launching another Chalene Johnson home fitness program I was ecstatic.
A couple months ago I received the sneak peek of the program, and I gotta say this is a new kinda strength training. Low impact and high intensity to improve your flexibility,
stamina, and strength. It is yoga and pilates inspired but it pulls it
all together to actually give you a cardio workout as well.
Exclusive Sneak Peek!
The key is that it gives you results such as defined muscles, abs, core
strength without the weights, the pounding of your joints and jumping
around. It's the perfect workout for those with mobility, joint and
limitations due to injury or past experiences. It's a workout that lends itself well to modifications.
Why is PIYO the workout to own?
Because it is unlike anything else out there. You can still get a
cardio workout, without the stress on your joints. You can have
Chalene's awesome motivating and inspirational personality every day for
90 days in the comfort of your own home. You can feel the burn for
days afterwards! I had the opportunity to test out a Piyo workout
myself. Each Elite Coach got a copy of Piyo Sweat as a sneak peak. Let
me just tell you that I left the 35 minute workout sweating, my booty
was burning and I could feel it the next day. But I wasn't bouncing
around, jumping or doing crazy complex moves. It was a controlled
movement that left me actually feeling energized vs defeated.
I also like the PIYO is the kind of workout that you can do anytime. Although designed as a 90 day program, you can also integrate into any workout routine to maximize results or increase flexibility and strength. It's a program for any fitness level because our bodies crave this type of movement!
Why I personally Am Excited for This:
Chemotherapy takes a toll on your body. Throughout the last couple months my body has received treatment that depletes me of energy and strength. Working out, is a way to fight this, but I know my own limitations. If you follow me, you know that I am currently doing P90X3 throughout my treatments.
I know that my body cannot handle rigorous workouts as I get closer to completing my treatments. PIYO- low impact, high intensity. As I find myself saying often, "modifications not excuses." PIYO is the workout to do to build your strength, increase your energy, and tighten your muscles. Count me in!
Why this is the workout for you!
I have an invitation for you!
I am going to be hosting an exclusive test group when this workout is released on June 20, 2014. I am inviting 10 people to participate along with me. We will officially begin July 7, 2014.
