What is PiYo & How Can It Help You- Review of this Awesome Workout

I am really excited for this work out to be released on June 23rd!  This should be an integral part of everyone's training routine to keep their bodies moving optimally and injury free.  Plus it is a fun and challenging workout that uses your own body weight to get amazing results.

What is PiYo?

PiYo is a full-body workout that helps build strength, endurance, and flexibility through a blend of Yoga and Pilates. It’s perfect for someone just starting or someone who is already crazy-fit. Flexibility training is SO IMPORTANT for us to incorporate into our training routine- what-ever your goals are.  If you are a runner, you need flexibility training, if you are a bodybuilder, you need flexibility training.  If you are a cross-fitter, you need flexibility training!!! We need flexibility training to continue to build muscle, and this workout is a calorie-torching way to safety stretch and get long, lean muscles.
There is no jumping or weights required for PiYo either so it’s a good low-impact option workout. It also is going to be super convenient for frequent travelers because it doesn't require weights.  It is fast paced and fun music keep you going through the movements.
