Alright ladies, are y'all ready? This is the FIRST OFFICIAL CLASS of KEI'S BUTT & GUT fitness program. We are coming out of this lockdown with bigger booties and flatter tummies naturally. We're going to achieve these goals through eating right and daily exercise because come on... really, what else are you going to do in the next thirty days of this quarantine? You have an hour to invest into improving yourself and your health.
So... I want to issue this challenge. Through the month of April, I want everybody to participate in this class because I really do want to emphasize on fitness. Starting April 6th, I want to see you improve your health. Find a creative way to journal your days, whether it's through VLOGs, instagram posts or stories, tag @painintopower__ and @madeinvietnam__ in all of them when you post up clips during your work out, before your work out, at the end of your work out, sweating and drinking water, eating healthy, meal prepping - it doesn't matter You get to choose what you show us. Brag about your improvements whether it's weight gain or weight loss. Show it off! We urge that you keep up with the program every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday, that means check in. The winner will be determined by who is the most consistent and who has the most participation points. This is meant to be a fun way to bring awareness to fitness and how it goes hand in hand with mental health. And remember, if you cheat - you're only cheating yourself out of a flatter tummy and a bigger booty. Don't get discouraged either, if you miss a day, make up for it on another day. One step at a time. We got this.
Oh DUH! What's the prize? The winner of the PIP FIT Challenge will be invited to be a guest on my show (once the quarantine is over). We can showcase your talent whether it be music, acting, writing, fitness, producing, hair, makeup, nails, cooking... whatever the case may be and we will discuss your story along with how you spent your time during this crucial lockdown. Please keep in mind that the Pain Into Power Podcast is in collaboration with The Madison Jaye Show which is streamed via iHeart Radio and Pandora. Season 2 reached 1M listeners. We are here to lift each other up to become the best versions of ourselves possible.

A message from Kei:
Heres is today's workout! Please follow the video in the beginning I stated were completing 10 rounds but I changed it towards the middle of the class!
Beginners: You will only need to complete 5-6 rounds of the glute exercise and 5-8 mins of cardio!!
Intermediate / Advance (training longer than 8 weeks) : you most do 5-8 rounds of 40- 50 reps for atleast 6-8 rounds and complete the 5-8 mins of cardio
Now let's get down and dirty. Despite the sweating from the workouts, we also have to be mindful of what we are putting in our bodies during this time. Yes I know, it's very tempting when we're home to order food or comfort our appetites but it's all about balance as well. We don't expect you to stop cold turkey but we will be breaking bad habits and eating healthier. Keep reminding yourself that flat tummies make your booty look bigger too (wink wink). Don't get discouraged or overwhelmed, remember it's one step at a time, one day at a time. Below is what Kei is advising you all to eat that will be most effective with your work out. She is also going to be sending me weekly food recipes and/or cooking videos to help get us started.
