Piyo Workout Review


I love Pilates and Yoga, so when I got news that they were going to be releasing a

program and product that included Pilates and yoga inspired moves I couldn’t

wait! I love how it pulls me in and brings that focus for me, I definitely feel a

sense of calming when doing these types of workouts which after a long busy day

working and with my family of 3 young active girls it is a great way to end.

I couldn’t wait to get started but I couldn’t help but wonder after doing so many

intense workouts if this one would yield any results for me. If I would feel this

workout making changes in my body.

So in this Piyo Workout Review I’ll go into the details of what it is, the Piyo

Schedule Etc, and touch on my experiences.

Ok so I was able to get a copy Piyo before it was released the Public. So without

any Hype or big promises I was able to do the Workouts with a clear focus. At first

I was thinking this was going to be full on Yoga & Pilates. You are constantly

moving and the form focus you get with balance, strength and flexibility is

amazing. My core has never been more tight and engaged through an entire


So What is PiYo?

Piyo is a low impact, high-intensity body-transformation program. It uses Pilates

and yoga inspired moves set to a fast pace to help you burn fast while you sculpt

long, lean muscles.Chalene Johnson in runner's stance in Piyo workoutYou’ll carve every inch of your

body without jumps, without weights, and without

straining your joints. You will use your own body

weight through moves which Chalene Johnson takes

you through step by step to lose weight, and get

intensely defined! Strength, cardio, and flexibility all

in one program.

Why is PiYo Effective?


Piyo incorporates the muscle-sculpting, core-focused

benefits of Pilates alongside the flexibility and power

of yoga. You will engage multiple muscle groups at the same time with the low

impact compound exercises while keeping your body in constant motion.

Maintaining an optimal heart rate while moving from one fluid movement to the

next will help to scorch calories throughout the whole workout!

These low-impact, high-intensity bodyweight workouts get you the results of

extreme programs, without the jumps, weights, or strain on your joints.

Who is PiYo For?


Anyone can do PiYo – from beginner to elite fitness levels. There is a modifier for

every move and workout to follow if you are a beginner or transitioning into this

program and aren’t ready for the advanced moves yet! It is a great workout for

athletes and program veterans to increase core strength and flexibility, which can

improve their overall performance in other areas.

Piyo is for women and men who want to lose weight and burn fat without the

high-impact jumps or complex choreography found in some cardio programs. For

those who want to build lean muscle but don’t want to lift heavy weights or bulk


If you like the benefits of yoga and Pilates but also want a cardio burn of a cardio

workout, and want an all in one cardio, strength and flexibility workout.

If you have a limited amount of time for a workout, limited space to do workout

moves in, and don’t have or want to use a lot of exercise equipment this is great

Piyo is not your traditional yoga and Pilates class that

will make you hold long, intense poses or lead you

through dozens of repetitive, microscopic core

movements. PiYo speeds everything up–including your

results–by introducing you to dynamic, flowing Pilates

and yoga inspired sequences that can burn serious

calories at the same time as you lengthen and tone

your muscles and increase your flexibility.

You will burn excess fat and sculpt and define your whole body with each

workout, as you minimize the aches and pains that can come along with

high-impact workouts.

What Equipment Do I Need?

No equipment is required to do PiYo. We recommend a yoga mat, water bottle,

towel and a space wide enough to take a step in each direction.
