This week I’ve transitioned from the Alpha Cycle of FOCUS T25 into the Beta Cycle. It’s my sixth week of this program and, honestly, it doesn’t even feel that long. I still love it. The program is so short it doesn’t feel like I’ve been doing it so long.
All in all, this has been my favorite Beach Body program yet. I can take it with me anywhere. I did workouts on my parents’ porch while home for my grandmother’s funeral. I complete workouts in my office at the end of the day to avoid busy commutes. And I can easily squeeze it in during a Saturday or Sunday morning before a busy day. Not to sound like an infomercial – but it’s worked more for me than any other exercise (including running).
In truth, I’m not seeing such drastic results as I did with Insanity – but I’m still losing pounds and inches. To date, I’ve dropped 3 pounds since I started the program and several inches off my thighs, waist, and chest. Even more important, my arms are truly toned for the first time in my life. I’m not embarrassed to wear a tank top – something I’ve avoided for the past two years. I just feel more healthy and confident in my own skin.
So far it seems that Beta is faster than Alpha. There aren’t any breaks in either program, but I feel like all the movements are done more efficiently and quickly. I especially like this because the 25 minutes seems to blaze by. Though I will admit I’m taking more breaks than I’d like.
My goal for the next 5 weeks? Finish the program. Take less breaks. And continue to feel good in my own skin. I have no doubt that this program will see me through!
How are you doing with your workout program/s?
