21 Day Fix vs. PiYo - What’s the difference?

21DF_vs_Piyo

Hi guys! I’ve recently had a lot of you ask me what the difference is between the 21 Day Fix program and the PiYo program. They are BOTH great and they BOTH give you amazing results. They both pretty much have the same nutritional meal plans however the 21 Day Fix brings portion controlled Tupperware for those of you who want to learn how to eat the right amounts of food (like I did when I first started). You can even eat carbs! They just have to be the right type of carb (like wild rice and whole wheat pasta and breads). The defining moment in your decision as to which fitness program to get will be the fitness aspect of it. So…. what’s the difference?! A lot. I’ll explain below.

piyo what you get

What is PiYo?
PiYo is a low-impact, high-intensity body-transformation program. It uses the most effective Pilates- and yoga-inspired moves set to a fast pace to help you burn fat while you sculpt long, lean muscles.

You’ll carve every inch of your body without jumps, without weights, and without straining your joints. And rest assured, there’s no complex choreography to learn. Chalene Johnson takes you step-by-step through the moves where you’ll use your body weight to lose weight and get intensely defined! You get your strength, your cardio, and your flexibility training all in one program.

Why is PiYo effective?
PiYo delivers the muscle-sculpting, core-focused benefits of Pilates along with the flexibility and power of yoga. PiYo’s low-impact compound exercises engage multiple muscle groups at the same time—while keeping your body in constant motion. As you progress from one fluid movement to the next without rest, you’ll maintain an optimal heart rate to incinerate calories throughout the whole workout! The result? You get a low-impact, high-intensity, total-body workout, giving you a physique that’s long, lean, and powerfully defined.

So there you have it! Regarding fitness, the 21 Day Fix has general exercises and is good for those who love “normal” general exercises (like squats, lunges, push ups, etc). Note: The 21 Day Fix does have a day for both Yoga and Pilates, they’re just not as intense as the PiYo routines.
The PiYo program has exercises that combine both Pilates and Yoga moves. It does not requiring any jumping or weights.
They’re both incredibly effective, it just depends what your goals are.
