PiYo: efficiency meets effectiveness

I want to let you in on a little secret: your body is the ultimate piece of gym equipment.  Weight machines, treadmills, cycles, and ellipticals are all nifty, but unnecessary, for getting fit and reshaping the body.   It’s no secret that I’ve never been a fan of gym equipment and, with the exception of a few hand weights, I use no contraptions in my fitness regime. Most of the time, I don’t even wear shoes.

If you follow any online fitness discussions, you’ve most likely heard the phrase “my soul mate workout”.  I want to explain why PiYo is my soul mate workout.  I’ve been doing this “fitness thing” for over 10 years now.  I enjoyed working out at home so I have multiple bookcases full of home fitness dvds from the likes of Tony Horton, Chalene Johnson, Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, Rodney Yee, Bryan Kest, etc.  Why so many different workouts?  It was a quest for balance.   I wanted it all:  endurance, crazy strength and wicked flexibility.  But there was a problem, I couldn’t find any one workout that accomplished all of these things.  That was, until I discovered PiYo.  A yoga based, body sculpting, intensive cardio workout that is completely sustainable due to it’s low impact nature.  Now that, my friends, is something of a miracle.

I know that scheduling time to workout can be challenging and I respect the fact that my students entrust this time to me.  Therefore, I am committed to bringing the most effective workout possible to each and every class.   The secret is circuit training utilizing body weight resistance to build functional strength, peripheral heart action to burn maximum calories and all in a format that focuses on balance and flexibility.  Add to that an active recovery process and every minute we spend together is moving you towards your goal.  I will teach you to exercise in a way that produces maximum results, without causing joint damage, and all in your bare feet.  Sound kinda perfect?  I will show you how to use your body to change your body.  No accessories required.
