“Who says you have to jump, grunt, strain, and punish your body to get amazing results from your workout? Not with PiYo…PiYo combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of yoga. And, we crank up the speed to deliver a true fat-burning, low-impact workout that leaves your body looking long, lean, and incredibly defined.”
This is the description of PiYo by the company who produced it, Beachbody. Beachbody is the same company that put out P90X, Insanity, TurboFire, and about 100 other well-known workout programs. I also happen to work for the company. I am a rep (we call them coaches) for Beachbody and help them market their workout programs.
I’m coming up on 5 years with the company and have done nearly all of their workout programs. My favorite BY FAR is Piyo. Here is why…
As a triathlete, I have no problem getting in enough cardio, but I rarely (if ever) get in my strength training, core work, stretching, and mobility work. I know all these components are important and will make me a better athlete.
PiYo is a combo of ALL of those WITHOUT any impact (which is great for me since I get enough impact running), WITHOUT any equipment (perfect since I travel a lot and don’t want to lug around anymore than I have to), and WITHOUT any fancy moves (I am so uncoordinated which is why I stick to swimming, biking, and running).
Another bonus for me, since I have so many other things I love doing during the day, is the workouts are each only 20-40 mins a day.
And for super beginners, there is someone on every video doing a “modification” to make the moves easier.
Since I officially start training for my 2016 tri season in January, and it is PACKED with racing and training, I am going to start doing PiYo the first week in January. I am starting an online group to help me stay motivated to do the workouts on a daily basis. I would love to have you join me!
