Unfortunately I am going to have to press pause on my Piyo review series.
Disc one in my set skips and freezes. (Serious bummer!) I tweeted Beachbody customer service and they said I need to call about a replacement. Am I the only one that would so much rather send a quick tweet or email than call and sit on hold? Lol.
Anyway, I don't know how long it will take to get a replacement and I haven't been able to do the full calendar because of the defective disc, so I am going to have to postpone my Piyo review series.
However, I will give you my first impression of the Piyo set...
Piyo First Impressions
I like the diet plan. It is easily tweaked Paleo and I don't feel like I'm starving. I could definitely see myself able to stick to it for the 8 weeks.
I LOVE the workouts. They're right up my alley right now. They're definitely yoga-esque, but nothing like the yoga I'm used to. I would describe it more as a body weight workout with a fair amount of focus on core, balance, and strength.
I'm sore after, but not feeling like I'm going to die. It's not crazy hardcore, but not a cinch either. It's perfect for me at this stage! Love the focus on my core, and of course love Chalene as instructor.
If you have issues with doing high impact workouts or just need a break from the same old, same old you've been doing, you will love this.
Like I said, I'm pressing pause on the Hype or Help review of this and with my editorial calendar, I'm not sure when I can fit it back in (sadface), but hopefully before summer.
Have you ever tried Piyo?
