So what is all this new PIYO talk?!?!
PiYo is Chalene Johnson’s latest masterpiece! Wondering if this program is right for you? YES, YES, YES!!!! It is a high intensity, low impact home workout program that guarantees great results without all the jumping around, weights, and strain on your joints! And all moves can be modified to fit any fitness level! You use your own body weight to sculpt your body inspired by Pilates and yoga moves.
How long are the PiYO workouts?
The lengths vary from 20-60 minutes each and include:
What type of results can you expect with PiYO?
The PiYO program is going to give you long, lean, muscles…a high, firm booty…and tight, flat, sexy abs. What’s not to love about that combination?!?! It works every single muscle to stabilize, stretch, and strengthen your body from top to bottom. And since Chalene Johnson cranked up the speed and the fun, crazy calories will be burned too!
This workout program is so different from the previous ones I’ve been doing. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen awesome results with both T25 and the 21-day fix but it was time for something different. And I am loving the low impact aspect of this program. Here’s a recap of week 1:
Day 1: The fundamentals
This workout takes you through all the basic moves and really focuses on the proper alignment which will maximize your results. I do yoga periodically and thought I knew what I was doing but this was a huge eye opener and very valuable!
Day 2: Define Lower Body
Take all those moves you learned on day 1 and put them to use! The workout was only 20 minutes but I felt the results of every second of those 20 minutes the next morning – holy cow!
