It’s no secret by now that Beachbody has created some amazing workout programs through the years. From high-intensity workouts like Insanity (the name says it all!) to the easy-to-follow workouts and meal plan in the 21-Day Fix, Beachbody has something for everyone!
If you’re looking for a low-impact workout that is going to give you amazing results then look no further. I have found the best low-impact Beachbody workout that you will love!
What is PiYo?
PiYo combines the best of Pilates and the best of yoga (with some low-impact cardio mixed in) to give you a dynamic workout without the wear and tear on your joints. Chalene Johnson created this program to help build strength and flexibility while scorching those calories. Three fundamental pieces of a great exercise program all rolled into one!
Why is PiYo so great?
PiYo is the best low-impact Beachbody workout because it has so many amazing benefits! Chalene Johnson gives step-by-step guidance in each workout so that you know exactly what to do. No more feeling lost or confused while trying to learn a workout program.
Struggling to fit a workout in your busy schedule? Good news! The routines are short- generally about half an hour long. This makes them perfect for busy moms whose free time is very limited.
If you’re just starting out on your fitness journey, or even just a new workout program, you hate to invest a lot of money into new equipment. That is not an issue with PiYo. Chalene designed her workouts so that all you need to complete the moves is your body! No other equipment is needed (although some people do recommend a yoga mat if you are working out on a hard surface.
And finally, PiYo is designed to be accessible to anyone, no matter their age or fitness level. The moves are low-impact so those suffering from joint pain or other health issues can safely get a good workout in.
What about the meal plan?
If you want to get the absolute most out of the PiYo program (or just your fitness journey in general), then you have to pay attention to your nutrition. Whether you want to completely transform your body, or just lose a few pesky pounds, following the PiYo meal plan along with the workouts will help you reach your goal.
The first step in the PiYo meal plan is to calculate how many calories you should consume for weight loss (there is a formula you will follow). Everyone’s body is unique, so their calorie needs will also differ and the PiYo meal plan takes that into account.
Next, you pick a PiYo food plan that matches your calorie target and choose foods from that list that you enjoy eating. The meal plan walks you through meal planning and tracking.
Having the ability to complete your workouts and have a meal plan is a game changer for so many women who feel stuck and lost when it comes to their personal health and wellness. Having the set structure makes things much easier when getting yourself to push into those first steps (which always seem to be the hardest). You got this!
