Yo, It’s PiYo!

You have no idea how crazy my life is right now! Okay, you probably do and can relate. I’m helping with flowers and decor for two weddings, working on my cookbook marketing, and generally trying not to freak out. It’s a good time. 🙂

I went to my first PiYo class last week,  and it was really fun! It helps that the instructor at my gym is an awesome guy. He’s super friendly and approachable, and he even lost 80 pounds through group fitness classes! Basically he made the class fun and never did I feel dumb doing the sequences. (Side note: It takes me forever to get the choreography in any fitness class, but he was super easy to follow.) A great, passionate teacher makes a HUGE difference! The class was very lyrical–and for a non-dancer like me, I even enjoyed it. Maybe because I never really knew what to expect. Sometimes that’s a good thing when trying out new classes, having no preconceived notions. PiYo is a low-impact workout that combines Pilates, yoga, and cardio to sculpt and tone your body. It’s really easy on the joints, and you’re always moving! I was amazed at how sweaty I got during class! Good stuff!

As I said in a previous post, it’s good to try out a class three times to see if you want to continue. I’ve only gone to one class, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even if I don’t make it a main part of my routine, I will probably go once a week or so. I just don’t have enough time in the week to squeeze in everything I want to do!

Have you ever done PiYo?

Have you tried anything new lately?
