P.volve Transformations: Cindy C.
At P.volve, we love hearing about clients’ progress and seeing how they’re crushing our workouts. These ladies, near and far, are giving the P.volve community some major inspo through their incredible transformations.
So many of our streamers find P.volve as a solution to their fitness woes—like Cindy Chu, an L.A.-based actress who was never able to click with a fitness program. But when she found our method, it all made sense. “I think fitness does have to be somewhat of a habit and way of life, and for me, I get bored easily or I won't want to drive to the gym, but I do like following a program,” she says. Through her workouts, she didn’t only find a consistent plan to stick with; she also saw changes to her body that were real and long-lasting. Read more about her journey below.
How did you first find out about P.volve?
I first heard about P.volve in a women's fitness group I'm in on Facebook, and one of my friends there was using the program and I was curious so I looked it up. I was really into the concept of it being physiotherapy based movements, as I'd recently had some minor injuries from weight lifting.
What were your initial goals when first starting to do P.volve consistently?
My initial goals were to de-puff from the weightlifting gains I'd made. I had meant only to get leaner and was training with my boyfriend, and I ended up growing out of some clothes because my muscles were getting bigger and I didn't like how it made me look on camera (I'm an actor) or how it made me feel a bit clumsy and ungainly. I read some of the other blog posts and saw how it helped many of them get leaner and tighter which is always my goal so I figured I'd give it a try. I also loved that I can do it from home since it's streaming.
How did you fit P.volve into your daily routine?
I challenged myself initially to a 30 days 30 workouts challenge to get out of a rut, and I would either start my day with a workout or squeeze one in later, and since some of them are 20 minutes, it was very doable.
How did your nutrition play into your transformation experience?
I'm one of those people who gets bloated easily on the wrong foods for my body, so I can't eat much in the way of starchy grains or dairy. I try to stick to a lot of veggies and lean proteins like fish or chicken, I don't eat red meat. I don't usually care for breakfast either, so I try to do 16/8 Intermittent Fasting (IF) where I pretty much eat lunch and dinner and snacks as needed in an 8 hour time window.
What became your favorite workouts or pieces of equipment?
I really loved the 3 Day Body Burn, it was so intense and I felt really toned right after but the workouts are longer so I have to plan it into my schedule more. Typically I try to rotate the parts worked, I love the p.3 workouts, and the 20 Min. Arms and Abs when I'm in a rush. I also love anything with the p.band! I'm a product lover so I got everything, but for sure the faves are the p.band, the p.3 and gliders.
What were the unexpected results you saw and felt?
My posture has improved a lot, my waistline is more defined, my arms have gotten a little leaner, and I dropped some inches off my waist and thighs, even though my weight didn't change much. I think the program is doing exactly what it's advertised for, leaning and toning, and it feels so doable. I love that it doesn't make me red in the face or make my heart race too fast, I sweat but it feels like a very gentle and healthy workout that's easy on my joints.
