In my efforts to try and lose weight I have been looking for at home weight loss programs that can deliver results in a short period of time because I like fast results. So after searching and getting distracted every now and then by the random search strings that come up in Google I was able to come across a workout program called PiYo workout DVD by celebrity trainer Charlene Johnson. Well I am not a big fan of infomercials so my doubts always creep in when I see an item being sold by being crammed down our throats. Well here is my mini review.
At home workout programs can be a waste of money because it’s so easy to buy them and just let them collect dust on the shelf or wherever you stash yours. My issues usually stem from not being able to consistently stay on top of the exercises for whatever reason. I am the type who gets amped up and imagine myself months down the road, usually aiming to achieve results by a date of an event; which is usually the goal.
I also happen to have shiny object syndrome which unfortunately makes me excited about looking for the next best thing even when I might have it right under my nose. This is so true because I was able to realize this when I jumped from p90x to insanity numerous times because I kind of quickly got bored and lazy. Eventually I decided to stick to one program and just force myself to do it, so I picked insanity over p90x, the first time I did the exercises I thought “this is impossible, I can’t jump up and down that long!”, well weeks later I was somewhat able to keep up with some of the exercises. I was getting better.
As for the PiYo workout dvd I had to pretty much use the same philosophy to force myself to follow the calendar and nutrition. The exercises get better as you do them but don’t expect to be keeping up with the training group on the video the first time, unless you have done similar exercises in the past. It’s not for everybody, I think it’s more effective for females because for guys looking to bulk up this might not be your cup of tea.
