So if you couldn’t tell… I love the Beachbody program workouts! My newest addition to my Beachbody program library has been Piyo from Chalene Johnson. I have reviewed another one of her programs called TurboFire, and was excited to try this one!
If you have seen the previews and descriptions for it, you know it talks about how it incorporates yoga and pilates into a high intensity but low impact workout. This excited me because I like high intensity workouts, and getting a high intensity workout while doing yoga intrigued me.
My friend and I have now been doing it for about two weeks, and I am surprised at the results I have gotten thus far. The upper body and lower body workout on their own aren’t too intense of a workout, but paired with another day or any of the other workouts it gets intense!
I can tell I am developing muscle from the program, and even though there aren’t any high impact moves, I definitely am getting cardio benefits from the constant motion of going through the moves.
So far, I like the program (as I mostly like Chalene Johnson’s workouts), but it is a bit different from what typical Yoga is. If you want to do this program because you think it will be like yoga, then I don’t think this workout is for you. I do however recommend this program for anyone wanting to lose weight and tone up!
It is getting easier to do my pushups now due to how much strength you gain in these workouts! I am able to do more in a quicker amount of time!
I will let you know how everything is going at the end of the first month! There are still some workouts that I haven’t gotten to yet, but am excited to try (like strength intervals and drench).
If you are thinking about purchasing this program, but have questions before you do, I would love to answer them! You can message me on my Facebook page or you can email me at email@example.com!
