PiYo: What is it?
Chalene Johnson created this program over 12 years ago and named it PiYo after Pilates and Yoga, but later realized that it was not really Pilates or Yoga. So, what is it? She calls it “functional flexibility.” What is that? It incorporates moves for strength and flexibility that are smilier to Pilates and Yoga, but incorporates cardio moves that help burn fat and calories. Chalene mentioned in a recent interview that she thought Pilates and Yoga were good workouts, but were not quite what she was looking for. She wanted to have the flexibility and strength gained from these two workouts, but needed to MOVE and it was missing one of her favorite futures, good music! So, she designed PiYo to do all those things. PiYo is a 60-day low-impact, high intensity body transformation program. While it may seem familiar to those that enjoy the benefits of Pilates or Yoga, this is a much faster paced workout, due to the incorporation of cardio. This is also a great workout because it requires little equipment.
How long are the workouts?
They range from 25-45 minutes per workout.
What is the workout schedule?
1 workout per day, 6 days per week and for 60 days.
How much space will I need to do this workout?
Just enough space for you to step side to side in all directions.
What kind of shoes do I need?
You can either use cross trainers or your bare feet.
Does this program come with a measuring tape to help me track my progress?
Yes. It will be in the side pocket with the guides.
Can this be used as a hybrid with other Beachbody workouts?
Yes. It’s a great compliment for more intense workouts like P90X3, that don’t have a lot of time for flexibility training.

Who can do PiYo?
From beginners to advanced fitness levels.
Is there a modifier in PiYo?
Yes. It’s really important for people with injuries to exercise with caution when they first begin, to insure that they don’t injure themselves further. Chalene has done something quite impressive and very thoughtful in her latest workout program, she has added a modifier who does all the moves on an angle, a 45 to 90 degree angle. Why? Chalene thought, and I agree, that it’s really important and helpful to see the proper alignment of the modifier. From someone who really appreciates the modifies, this was a wonderful addition to what I expect will be another great workout form Chalene Johnson.
What can you expect from PiYo?
I believe that we can expect another amazing workout, to see Chalene at her best and benefit from her fitness expertise, as well as her super motivating and fun-loving personality. I believe we will get a great workout, see amazing results and have a really fun time in the process. After reviewing the descriptions of these workouts, I don’t expect it to be easy, but that would be true to Chalene’s passion for helping better the health of anyone willing to do whatever it takes to make life changing improvements to their health. I believe this will be a low-impact and high intensity workout, just as she promised and if we are willing to do our part, I trust she will expertly deliver on her promises.
Need accountability and support?
I will be starting my new PiYo workout soon and I’m really excited about gaining flexibility, strength and core stability, not to mention burn fat and look AMAZING! I have a lot of recurring injuries from old military injuries that have never fully healed. I’m looking forward to seeing great results in my over health and fitness with this program.
