If you haven’t ever experienced the unique workout that is PiYo, you definitely should. It’s a hybrid workout that combines the mind and body connection and poses of yoga, with the strength training, stretching, and dynamic movement of Pilates. It speeds up your heart rate with a continuous flow of movement from one exercise to the next. PiYo could be called a faster version of regular yoga, as it offers the benefits of stretching, breathing, balance, and relaxation, all with a really fun music soundtrack. And of course, PiYo is an amazing way to get into shape with its ability to use low-impact, fluid movements, to provide a workout that helps your body get long, lean, and defined, and helps bring the mind/body connection together all in one hour long session.
Aside from all the great attributes that a PiYo workout offers, attending a group class to do PiYo has even more benefits! You know that struggle to get yourself to stick with a workout all the way through? The cure for that is motivation! And attending a group class give you just that! Seeing other people keep working out can give you more encouragement to push through and reach your own fitness goals. Accountability is another attribute of group workouts. If you stop showing up, your workout group can reach out to you and find out what you’ve been up to and encourage you to get back on track. Or knowing that they are all waiting on you to get to class at a certain time each week will keep you going. Finally, working out in a group atmosphere can provide some social time. It’s pretty amazing what suffering through an intense workout can do to bring people together. You may also find that wanting to improve your health and having the same schedule may bring about a common bond between you and your workout classmates.
