PiYois a very special workout from Beachbody created by superstar trainer Chalene Johnson. It is designed for people who want to accomplish great results but cannot or do not want to do high impact exercises.
If you want to improve your physique without lifting heavy weights, without jumps, and without straining your joints then you need to try PiYo: a low impact, high intensity 60 day long workout program that is proven to deliver great results.
You don’t have to do excessive jumps or lift heavy weight to get amazing results from your workout. The great thing about PiYo is that it relies on compound body weight exercises that engage multiple muscle groups at all times which results in a huge metabolic effect and help you burn more calories while also improving your strength and balance as well as cardiovascular endurance. It combines the muscle-sculpting, core-firming benefits of Pilates with the strength and flexibility advantages of yoga. And, by increasing the speed it delivers a great fat-burning, low-impact workout that leaves your body looking long, lean, and incredibly defined.
