    I just ordered Piyo too! I was on the Beach Body website saw a CLX/Piyo Hybrid but was really surprised not to see a Turbo Fire/Piyo Hybrid!? (unless I over looked it) I think those two programs would go great together!

    That may be because CLX has a stretch (Recharge?) workout built in. I don't believe TF has a stretch workout that is substantial. I know there is a Stretch 10, but that's all I recall.

    TF has Stretch 40 too. I really think any 2 programs can be made into hybrids but its so much easer when it's laid out for you. This site is great, this woman has come up with tons of hybrids, I assume PIYO will be on there eventually:

    Oh yes, you are right! Stretch 40. TF isn't my fave program so I don't really follow it.

    Stretch 40 is too boring for me, never made it past 15-20 min lol.

    I actually own both programs and I am certified to teach PiYO, Hustle and TurboKick.

    The new PiYo program is at a quicker pace than the stretch or recharge from TF & CX. The moves all engage the core and range from 30-45 minutes.

    At anytime you can create a hybrid workout (currently I am doing CX/PiYo/Brazil Butt Lift & TF). But lots of other coaches post their hybrid workout ideas online as well. I also create my own hybrid workouts for fun.

    Either way PiYo is not a bad program and with the clean eating plan people are seeing awesome results - but ultimately its about finding the workout that works for you. I myself will always be a TF girl - but admit I am seeing amazing results with my 2nd round of CX. That being said - PiYo really helps stretch all the muscles we neglect to stretch during our other workouts :)

    I also had a hard time with the P90X yoga, Yoga X. When I ordered that system it came with a free One on One Yoga and that thing is about 40 minutes. It's also hard to get thru but really it's just because Tony Horton TALKS SO MUCH! I prefer that one.

    TurboChristy, thanks for the info. I'm waiting until payday (Friday) to order the PiYo and I'm itching to get it!! I definitely need to clean up my diet though. At least I'm not gaining, but I'm not losing either.

    I have ordered the Challenge Pack and signed up to be a coach. The coach I have is great, she's never once tried to sell me anything, only been very supportive so I hope to be like her.

    Tracking says it should arrive on Friday.

    I'm slightly nervous though, I've been hearing it's way slower than her other programs and some people can't handle taking their time.

    I love Chalene so hopefully i'll be a big fan of this program.

    If not I may work on a P90X in the Gym and PiYo blend.

    Good luck to you being a coach! I've done 3 of the PIYO workouts and yes they are slow compared to other Chalene workouts because it's a totally different workout, well CLX strength workouts are slow paced too. Yoga and pilates are slower moving, it is nothing like any Turbo workouts or CLX cardio. The 3 I've done are not cardio like but I can really feel it in my muscles and heart rate still goes up a little. I do think that cardio could be added along with what I've done so far and I will probably add some in occasionally.

    Thank you for that.

    Do you feel like you are already becoming more flexible?

    Are you feeling challenged? I'm really excited to start -

    I don't feel a change yet, since it was only 3 workouts last week(some kinda half assed cuz I'm still learning moves and form), but I do feel challenged and that if I keep with it I will see benefits in flexibility and strength(at least in core and upper body). I have never done yoga or pilates, well I've tried a little yoga but not much, so this really is new and different for me.

    I've done a Pilates Class once, without the Pilates Tables. It was better than yoga for me. I find the Stretching in Chalene programs to be very yoga heavy and then of course in Yoga X and Cardio X there are also yoga moves. I have a hard time doing the same sequences over and over, but I believe the PiYo classes are shorter?

    So far this is not exactly like the stretching I've done with Chalene, but I haven't done much because I never got through CLX Recharge or TF Stretch 40 lol. Those were more actual stretches. In the 3 workouts I've done in PiYo it's more like yoga core & strengthening(well from what I know, never really looked at many yoga workouts). The workouts aren't too long. Of the 3 I've done they were 25, 20 and 35 min. I don't think there are any longer, maybe 40.

    Cool. I hate super long workouts.

    Thanks for your response :)

    I'm starting to get nervous. Word on the street (or within my MFP Friends Circle) is that PiYo is nice, but "not enough."

    I definitely will keep you guys updated once it arrives.

    I think it depends on your goals. If someone has a lot of weight to lose I could see it 'not being enough' as far as big calorie burns, but that would really depend on diet too. I do think that workout junkies would need to do this along with other things. I am not a workout junkie but I will be adding in extra cardio and eventually bringing back in lifting weights. My intention with the program is more about getting fit than losing weight(even though I still need to do that to). I'm sure fitness level is a factor too. I am definitely feeling this workout because my body has not been doing anything like it in the past. So for now this is definitely enough for me but like I said I'll add a little cardio here and there for the extra burn because I have a lot of fat to lose.

    I want to get "leaner" but my goal is only about 5 pounds (to 7 depending on the day) away, so it's not a huge motivator for me.
    My goal is also to be more flexible as shown in my inspiration photo on my profile.

    I was thinking after I posted that I was able to make it thru 2 months of BBL... I can make it through this. I may need to hybrid it with some CLX or P90X, etc because I'm loving my strength gains.

    Yes, don't stop your strength gains! I think strength can be gained from PiYo but it might matter on your starting fitness level. For me I have weak upper body so I know PiYo can help my shoulders and arms from all the pushups, planks and downward dog type movements. Once I start getting more comfortable with the moves in PiYo and gaining a little upper body and core strength I definitely want to add weights back into my routine. I regret not sticking with it and starting from scratch again.

    I hope you stick with it. CLX is an easy program to pop in and out of if you get a little bored doing the same exercises. But I have to say it works, even without doing it in front of the tv.
