So, what is PiYo? PiYo is a strength, stretch and flexibility workout promising to deliver the same results as yoga, pilates and interval training combined. It is powerful, dynamic and will make you work at a high intensity to burn calories, torch body fat and shed unwanted pounds. It features all of the benefits that you get from Yoga and Pilates, including flexibility and core training, but with an added emphasis on cardio and strength training to really make you sweat. Another unique aspect about PiYo is that you will be doing plenty of strength training and muscle building, but you will not be utilizing a using a single weight. No heavy weights or jumping involved so you do not have to worry about high-impact moves that will be hard on the knees.
