PiYo – A Low Impact Workout That Delivers Results
PiYo is Chalene Johnson’s newest workout released with Team Beachbody. I ordered myself a copy the day it was released and it has finally arrived.
Created after sustaining injury after injury, Chalene Johnson created PiYo – a workout that is truly for everyone. PiYo is a combination of yoga, pilates and strength; it uses your body weight along with works WITH your body. It’s low-impact (meaning it’s easy on your joints, back, and previous injuries) and there is a modifier available to take the workouts down a level.
From celebrity trainer Chalene Johnson, PiYo is a low-impact, high-intensity 60-day body transformation program. It uses the most effective pilates and yoga inspired moves set to a fast pace to help burn fat and sculpt long, lean muscles. Carve every inch of the body without jumps, weights, or strained joints.

My PiYo Goals:
After finding out that my hormones are all over the place, I am not focusing on weight loss because it will be a losing battle. This summer I am focusing on stabilizing my thyroid levels with my new doctor and becoming healthy. After a recent trip to my new Naturopath, I found out that not only my thyroid levels are out of whack (I had my thyroid removed in 2011 and even though my medical doctor said they were fine – I knew they weren’t) but my estrogen is high, my blood pressure is low and a few other problems.
My focus is to be healthy, become stronger, build some muscle, and work on my flexibility (bonus points if I lose some body fat but I have been told not to expect it until my body is healed). I am also hoping that this workout (since it is based on yoga moves) will help me with stress and help me become more centered.
I will update my progress after each month (twice).
