She developed four main unique and different workout plans that meet distinct goals people want to achieve.
PiYo is a workout plan inspired by Pilates and Yoga and has body weight concentrating, fluid performance, low-impact and high-intensity moves that will help you stabilize, stretch and strengthen your body muscles without jumps, weights and straining of joints. It is a perfect workout for those who want no bulk but still sculpt their body or lose weight or both.
TurboFire is a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) cardio based workout plan which ignites your metabolism and burns up 9x more fat and calories than the traditional cardio workout. It also includes two low impact but intense workouts to help you get up to speed.
ChaLEAN Extreme is a workout plan. It is for those who want to burn body fat for overall body transformation and develop lean muscles. This workout plan consists of weight training and use of resistance bands to sculpt lean body muscles and level up the metabolism. ChaLEAN Extreme is said to help you lose body fat even while you sleep, long after your workout as it technically supercharges your metabolism.
TurboJam is basically a fitness exercise program that includes kickboxing, hip-hop and combined drills. This workout program is a home-based routine that is perfect for people who are open to dancing, working out and sculpting their body to the hottest music.
Nutrition and Diet Plan
Chalene strongly believe that being on a diet and having a diet are two different things. Having a diet means habitual healthy eating. It is not a strictly planned and scheduled diet that often fuels the craving to eat the “forbidden foods”.
According to Chalene, successfully fit people eat whole foods like fruits, veggies and whole grains first. They drink a lot of water as it aids every aspect of your bodily functions. The fit people do not skip their breakfast. They eat small frequent meals and usually stick to the same daily menu. Chalene started a Diet Beta Test.
She says that diets don’t work very often. What works is a customised approach that balances your hormones, ignites your metabolism and improves your gut health.
For weekend weight loss nutrition tips, Chalene suggests that one does not indulge in alcohols and restaurant foods. As when Monday hits, we end up regretting what we ate over the weekend.
A cup of raw veggies (like cucumber, celery, red pepper, etc.) before and after lunch will increase your fiber and nutrient intake. It probably curb your crave for that tempting dessert.
She also lets on the secret of Intermittent Fasting that says start your meals late (like 11AM) and finish them up early (like 7PM).
Beauty and Health
The fitness enthusiast Chalene says that the best accessory for every outfit is a water bottle. She says that staying hydrated helps you to get a glowing skin. Chalene explains that she does her makeup and hair to training as it literally takes just 5 minutes. Besides, taking care of yourself and making yourself a priority creates a level of authority. It also makes you look more presentable and feel better about yourself.
Chalene Johnson is an utterly inspiring woman and tells us to find our own happy. She tells us that fitness is her happy pill for each day. Success is a personal thing and you should be able to find your own definition of success. Finally, she motivates us to work for ourselves, fixate on our destination, lead with the truth and stay humble.
