SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beachbody, the leading provider of in-home and gym-based fitness programs, announced today the launch of Country Heat, a country dance-inspired workout available nationwide this summer. The company's first foray into the country music genre, this new fitness program was created by Super Trainer and 21 Day Fix® creator Autumn Calabrese, and features routines so simple anyone can do them, and so fun everyone will want to.
Choreographed to some of the most recent contemporary country music hits, Country Heat includes six 30-minute calorie-busting cardio routines. Songs like "Kick the Dust Up," "Crash and Burn" and "All About Tonight" get you moving in these high-energy, low-impact workouts while you learn simple moves that tone and tighten the body without weights or equipment.
"Country Heat was inspired by my passion for country music and my love of both fitness and dance," Calabrese said. "I created this program for people who have been looking for a fun and easy alternative to fitness and I'm confident people will quickly see just how effective it is to work out while having fun!"
In addition to the workouts, a bonus line dance will be included featuring a new song from award-winning country artist Jo Dee Messina. "Night Crawl" was written exclusively for Country Heat and don't be surprised to see this line dance filling the dance floors of honky tonks throughout the country this summer!
"For years we've been looking to create a simple approach to fitness that was accessible to everyone and that people would love to do," said Carl Daikeler, CEO of Beachbody. "We are committed to helping people achieve their weight-loss goals and with the incredible popularity of country music, we believe Country Heat is going to reach millions of people who have been frustrated or bored with more traditional or extreme workouts. Country Heat is just plain fun!"
The Country Heat program will be released July 28th, 2016, and includes five dance workouts plus one full-body dance-conditioning workout, a quick-start guide, a 30-day program calendar, Autumn's patented portion-control containers and nutrition program, plus the bonus line dance— all for only $59.85. The entire program, inclusive of the workouts, music and nutrition, was designed to be simple and fun – appealing to people of all fitness levels.
For those who thrive in a group fitness setting, certified Country Heat Live instructors will soon be offering classes at gyms and community centers across the country.
