5 things I'm loving about PiYo
So as you know, I've been doing PiYo for about 3 weeks off and on and I'm loving here! I can't recommend it enough and here are the reasons why!
To first explain, PiYo is a combination of Pilates and Yoga. It works on strength training using your own body weight as resistance and also stretching your muscles as well.
1. It's on DVD
This is clutch. The DVD case is small and compact and I can take it anywhere. I'm heading to Denver in less than 2 weeks and you bet I'll have it in my luggage.
2. They are short workouts
I'm very busy in my life and need workouts under an hour that get the job done and don't take too long. This is great- most workouts are 20-35 minutes and they get the job done!
3. No equipment needed
This is the main reason I never tried P90X-I don't want to buy equipment. All you need is really water. Some workouts suggest a towel or a yoga mat but I've yet to use those.
I bought my DVDs for 65 dollars including shipping from a Beachbody coach. You can order them online here. If you want to order through a coach, go for it! It helps with accountability!
5. It works
Even though I've only been doing it in between my running workouts about 2-3 times a week, I'm seeing results!
My stomach is more toned, my legs look a bit more toned, my flexibility has increased so I can actually lay my hands flat on the floor instead of just touching it. Now if it'll just help my running too!
So anyone else try PiYo? What are your thoughts?
