Is PiYo for you?

PiYo is an acronym that stands for Pilates and Yoga. It is a fitness class devised by fitness company Beachbody and combines the strengthening benefits of Pilates with the flexibility enhancing effects of yoga.

Set to music, this dynamic, energetic program provides a full-body workout without straining your body.

PiYo is a low-impact exercise that doesn’t involve jumping, which lowers your risk of soft-tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, and bruises.

This program is for you if you’re looking for a movement-based way to shape your body by building muscle tone and reducing fat.

PiYo helps to develop a strong core, which is essential in improving coordination, balance, and posture. The moves put less pressure on your joints, which helps to prevent aches and pains that often come with high-impact training.

It’s ideal for people with limited mobility since it builds muscle strength, increases flexibility, and improves your range of motion. This enhances your athletic performance and adds ease to your everyday movements.
