Why I Love PiYo #2

I went to my first PiYo class just over a year ago. I had been attending classes at the gym and found a comfort there as opposed to dvds at home. A friend talked me into going with her and I instantly fell in love with PiYo. The next day and even now, I find myself more sore after PiYo than any other classes including Insanity. PiYo forces me to stretch muscles I didn’t know I had and move in ways I never thought possible. I started out much heavier and had to modify many of the moves and found that PiYo created a safe space for me to do that. The class truly is for anyone who is looking to take care of their body by strengthening and stretching. It’s hard to explain to people what PiYo is until you come to a class and see for yourself. I especially love PiYo because of the class with this particular instructor and the girls I am getting to know who come on a regular basis. Carrie takes the time to break down the moves, show modifications, and make sure everyone feels comfortable about what we’re doing. I am currently 33 weeks pregnant and have continued to attend PiYo. I modify most everything and do what I can. I know without a doubt it’s because of these kinds of classes why I have no aches or pains and am feeling amazing in my pregnancy. I plan to keep going to PiYo until baby girl comes and then can’t wait to be cleared to go back and do some of the moves they are doing right now like the sweep through and flip over!” – Stacie

Why I Love PiYo

“I recently tried PiYo and am in LOVE. PiYo combines the beauty of Yoga and it’s strength and stretching with the low impact challenges of strength training and toning of Pilates and somehow in there – we get a pretty good cardio workout! It is all I love about fitness rolled into one powerful and FUN hour. I walk away knowing I got a great workout and because we do so much stretching mixed in I have no joint/tendon pain afterwards. I only hurt in the RIGHT places. Plus – Carrie makes it a blast. I hope you can join us some time!” –Stephanie
