The Unique Difference of PiYo From Pilates and Yoga
27 July 2020
Many people have the wrong notion about PiYo. Some think it's just a mere fusion of yoga and Pilates. However, while the former indeed have influence from the latter workouts, PiYo is uniquely different in many ways.
PiYo is more than just flexibility training and strength. In fact, it is considered a high-intensity workout due to the incorporation of martial arts and dance. While yoga and Pilates are performed in slow motions, Piyo, on the other hand, is done in fast-paced, higher-energy, and higher-sweat class. It also uses more upbeat music to synchronize with the movements, instead of the traditional zen yoga music.
Moreover, unlike the other two workouts, PiYo classes are aerobic. PiYo classes fuse together lively, continuous flowing movements to raise the heart rate, burn calories, and make you soaked in sweat!
It is also a total-body strengthening workout. It involves planks, side plank, core work, lunges, and squats that will give your large and small muscles a good workout. By executing these poses repeatedly, you utilize your own body’s resistance in order to build strength. Doing Piyo regularly will help you achieved that toned and sculpted figure that you've been desiring without the bulk.
So if you want a workout that will make you slimmer and sexier minus bulging muscles, this is the workout you've been looking for. Contact Answer is Fitness and join our PiYo class.
