It's time for a new workout. I'm 40 now and it seems that my body doesn't take well to impact anymore. Little annoying injuries surface when I do too much running or jumping jacks. In fact, I'm still in the final stages of recovering from a foot injury that happened last summer.
This is why I have chosen PiYo. No impact, yet defining & challenging. Sounds perfect. PiYo is a combination of Pilates and Yoga in one workout. It's been in the fitness center arena for several years, but it is just now available for home consumers like me. Since I live in the middle of nowhere Missouri, the closest workout facility is small and 30 minutes away. And that's on a good day when the creek hasn't flooded the low water crossing. If I want to go to a bigger club that might have PiYo on the schedule, we are looking at a 45 minute drive. This is just not sustainable on an ongoing basis. So, I workout at home. Not my choice, but a necessity.
When I heard that PiYo was coming to the home consumer in the form of a DVD set, I knew I wanted to try it. What's even cooler is that I met some of the people in the video when I attended Smart Success in Anaheim earlier this year. In fact, my good friend Chloe Gibbs is even in the infomercial that will be coming out later this year. She saw amazing results from PiYo and has been an instructor for years, despite the fact that she has suffered from severe scoiosis her whole life. This gives me incredible trust in the program.
So, here I am. I purchased my PiYo kit today and should be ready to start in about a week.
