According to PiYo’s developer, Beachbody, PiYo is a “high-intensity, low-impact workout for a new kind of STRONG.”
PiYo combines Pilates and yoga movements, raises the tempo, delivering an intense workout that encompasses cardio, flexibility and strength training simultaneously. “PiYo packs it ALL into each workout so you can build lean muscle mass—as you’re burning crazy calories. ”
Yet while you get a full-body workout, the idea is still simple: Use your body weight as resistance, while performing a series of continuous, targeted moves “to burn fat as you redefine every single muscle. No weights. No jumps. Just hardcore results.”
According to the creator of PiYo, Chalene Johnson:
“PiYo gives you hardcore definition, intense calorie burn, and allover strength—without weights, without jumps, and without destroying your body.”
Therefore you get, “An ultra lean and intensely defined physique without bulking up or straining your joints.”
