Last month BeachBody announced three new products that I am excited to share with you-PiYo, 3-Day Refresh and P90.
The highly anticipated PiYo is now available and brought to you by my favorite workout video celebrity Chalene Johnson, creator of TurboFire, Turbo Jam and Turbo Kick. At this point you’re probably wondering what kind of crazy name is PiYo? No, its not math slang for saying hi to a bro, But is actually a mix between Pilates and yoga. It is unique in that Instead of holding poses forever, like in yoga, it moves quickly enough to incorporate cardio as well as strength and flexibility. What do I think of the workout? As a coach I am super excited because it gives me a great low impact workout to recommend to all types of fitness enthusiasts, but I haven’t tried it personally because i prefer faster workouts. Several clients with bad knees have been raving about it!
Here is the blurb I stole from the beach body website (couldn’t have said it better myself):
“Who should buy the program? PiYo is for: Men and women who want to get the results of an extreme program without the jumps, weights, or joint strain. This program is perfect for people of all fitness levels; people who want to build lean muscle without the bulk; those who love the benefits of pilates and yoga, but feel these programs lack the cardio they need to burn fat and calories; and people who want a workout that doesn’t require a lot of equipment.”
Next, I’m excited to announce the 3-Day Refresh. The 3DR is a healthy cleanse that includes supplements and healthy meals. not surprisingly, it lasts 3 days and will clean out your system and help lose A few pounds in the process. it isn’t one of those scary “only drink lemon juice for two weeks” cleanses that are doomed to end in extreme hangryness (hangryness is the act of being hangry, and is the serious medical condition of Being angry cuz your Hungry) and binge eating. There’s a healthy meal plan to follow along with supplemental shakes, so no risk of completely irrational hunger related outbursts!
Last but but not least is P90! P90 is by the creator of P90X, X2 and X3, Tony Horton. He has created an “easier” version of P90X for the person who is just starting their fitness journey with a mix of cardio and weight training, done in 30 min (or a little less) and will include more modified moves. If you’re familiar with Power 90, which was released before P90X, P90 is a more up to date version and not as “extreme”. I really like the sound of this workout, and wish it would have been available when I first hauled my butt off the couch and started working out for real. because i have done p90x and p90x3, I feel very comfortable recommending this workout to anybody wanting to start out with an easy workout before moving up to a more extreme version. The release date for this workout is around September; I’ll put the exact release date in the comments when I find out for sure.
