The PiYo Breakdown
PiYo isn’t like standard Pilates and yoga classes that 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 they lengthen and tone your muscles and increase your flexibility. AND Chalene keeps you moving!! So, don’t get frustrated if it takes you a couple of times through to get the moves down with grace and flow.
As you progress from one fluid movement to the next without rest, you’ll maintain an optimal heart rate to incinerate calories throughout the whole workout! With each PiYo session, you’ll burn excess fat and sculpt and define your whole body, as you minimize the aches and pains that can come along with high-impact workouts.
What results can you expect? You get a low-impact, high-intensity, total-body workout, giving you a physique that’s long, lean, and powerfully defined.
