The first thing to determine is how much time you have to dedicate to fitness. There is quite a variety of length within the Beachbody Library. For Instance:
10 Minutes – Short workouts that can help create and build habits. Some examples include: 10 Minute Trainer, Controlled Stretch and Unstress.
30 Minutes – Mid length workouts that can create foundations of fitness and strength. Some examples include: Power Half Hour, P90x3 and Country Heat.
1 Hour – Longer workouts that can enable you to break through plateaus and reach new fitness highs. Some Examples include: P90x, P90x2, Barre Blend. *Most of the workouts on Beachbody can be completed within 1 hour, even while pausing.
Knowing how much free time you have can help you be realistic about your SMART goals.
Time can also refer to program length, and not just duration. For Instance:
1 week – Programs designed to get you moving and establishing skills. Some Examples include: Clean Week, Shawn Week
1 Month – Short-term programs that help cement habits. Some examples include: 21 Day Fix, Let’s Get up.
2 Months – Medium-term programs that aim to build upon foundations. Some Examples include Insanity, LIIFT 4, Piyo
3 Months – Long-term programs that can push past plateaus and help achieve greater heights. Most of the programs can be completed within 90 days.
If your timeframe is limited, consider one of the shorter programs initially. Then you can build upon your skills and knowledge when selecting the next program.
The nest step to determine what workouts are best would be to figure out the intensity of program within the time limits you have. Some examples are:
Light – Light workouts will stretch and improve flex ability. Some Examples include: 3 Week Yoga Retreat and Tai Cheng
Moderate – Moderate workouts will engage your muscles and help burn calories. Some Examples include: , Let’s Get Up!, Brazil Butt Lift and Piyo
Heavy – Heavy workouts are aimed at building muscle. They include: Body Beast, P90X, Insanity and Master and Chisel
Choose the intensity thats right for you based on previous workout experience and whats been beneficial in the past.
Now that we have a time and intensity to our workouts, we can determine what equipment we have or want to help achieve our goals.
Stretching – These workouts allow you to rest, recover and prevent injury. They Include: Tai Cheng
Bodyweight – These programs use Bodyweight as the major resistance, perhaps with some minor weights thrown in. Some Examples Include: P90x, and Power 90.
Weights – These programs utilize heavy weights in addition to some bodyweight exercises. Examples include – Hammer and Chisel and Body beast
