Today’s Workout: CVX

cvxI’m a Certified Personal Trainer and also a Beachbody Coach. I don’t make a huge deal out of being a Beachbody Coach, mainly because anyone can be a coach. In fact, the reason I became a Beachbody Coach in the first place, was to get a discount on their products.

Although I have a gym membership with Planet Fitness, I prefer to work out at home. When I go to the gym, it’s usually for something I can’t do here at home because I don’t have the equipment. But for the most part, I use my bench and weights in the comfort and privacy of my living room. It helps me to be more faithful (my one word for 2017) because I have no excuse not to work out.

My favorite workouts are Body Beast with Sagi Kalev, and PiYo with Chalene Johnson. But, one of the beautiful things about Beachbody is the variety of programs available.

The first Beachbody workout I did was Focus T25 with Shaun T. The second workout I did was P90X3 with Tony Horton. I bought it as soon as it was released. I knew the original P90X had been a very popular program, and wanted to give P90X3 a try, because it was only 30 minutes a day. I have limited time available, so I prefer shorter workouts when they will get me the results I want.

I was also interested in P90X3 because Tony Horton and I are the same age. Sometimes during Focus T25, I just wanted to yell at the screen when Shaun T was talking about the “old” people in his video who were in their late 30’s or early 40’s… saying if they could do it, I could do it… Here I am thinking, I’ve got 10+ years on these guys!!!! I thought with Tony Horton, I’d have no excuses because we’re the same age.

Today was cardio day, and while there is a Body Beast cardio, I decided to go outside the Body Beast program and do this routine from P90X3. Cardio with weights… actually a single weight. I had forgotten what a great workout this is!  CVX combines resistance, variable speed intervals and endurance. It’s a great workout to get the heart pumping, burn off some major calories, and strengthen your core.

I do like the P90X workouts. In fact, I liked them so much I went on to become a certified P90X Live instructor. (I’m also a certified PiYo and Cize instructor.)

If you’re interested in any of the Beachbody workouts or other products, give me a holler. I can tell you they have honestly changed my life and allowed me to be consistent with my fitness program.  Just leave me a comment below, and I’ll get back to you.
