    @amysj303 LOL! Yeah. Let's blame the imbalance warrior series! I've made a point of alternating which side I do first and marking it on my schedule. This way I am creating the balance that is not there on the DVD.

    If you're ever interested in some gentler yoga practices that will help with those tight hamstrings, feel free to PM me. I have a love of yoga that goes waaaay back. I can send you links. Not trying to sell anything. I always encourage people to find workout DVDs through their public library, to try on a workout before buying it.

    @kr1stadee Your husband is right. It's a great Mother's Day gift. Happy early Mother's Day! I'm currently doing PiYo with 21 Day Fix. I'm in week through of both and enjoying them both a lot!

    @DJ478 This website will help you create a hybrid calendar of PiYo and Insanity: https://workoutscheduler.net/hybrid-workout-calendar-scheduler/#.VTzpEJNbV2A

    You may have to tweak the results a bit to fit your purposes but it takes a lot of the work out of figuring out when to do what and how to blend the two workouts. The other option would be to use the Official Beachbody PiYo/T25 hybrid but replace Insanity with T25, matching the type of workout as best you can. http://www.beachbody.com/images/pdf/piyo-t25-hybrid-calendar.pdf

    I have to admit... I haven't started PiYo yet. It's sitting in my DVD player.

    I've been on the road for the last 3 weeks, so it's been tough! Hopefully I will get started this weekend! I'm actually a little scared of it hahah

    Are the moves with PiYo easy to follow?

    @mrsewert Yes and no. At first, no. It takes a few rounds of each workout to get to where you know what Chalene means when she says step back into a lunge. (Sometimes, you step back and hold; other times, you step back and tap up.) So at first, I admit I felt a little lost but about two weeks ago I realized that I was moving through the workouts with little to no confusion.

    I'm thinking of joining a PiYo class at the gym. Is it something that you can join or will I be totally lost in the class?

    @JessUK98 I can't say for sure because I've never taken a class. It also really depends on the instructor. Even on DVDs, some people are better at giving cues about what is coming next and others are terrible about it. But my honest feeling is that it doesn't really matter. People don't take fitness classes to judge what other people are or are not doing. They are there to exercise. If you can't keep up during the first class, you'll do better the second, and then better still the third, until one day you are the one the newbie member is watching and admiring for knowing what to do and when to do it.
