Carlos Leon (yes, father to Lourdes, ex of Madonna …) and Jeff Bell have launched Belleon, a full-body workout that’s more than a few twists and jumps — it’s a body bible.
Belleon is designed as a basic one-hour circuits class followed by a series of exercises that work your entire core.
Leon and Bell take you through a six-week total body conditioning training that sees intensity increase each time.
Every week, more circuits are added as your fitness level, endurance and ability improves whereas extra cardiovascular moves are added in order to keep the heart rate high and enable fat burn. More of an urban boot camp, this is and idea for people with no time and that need to squeeze their workouts into bursts
Bell and Leon want to re-introduce you to your body.
“Once you realize working out makes you feel better, getting to know your body becomes a life-long commitment,” says Leon.
Their lean, muscular physique is the living proof their method works for both men and women.
“We chisel people into shape. Their muscles become tighter, leaner, more toned and their heart rate increases facilitating fat burn.”
All of this is done without bulking you up.
Working out is the bigger picture to a happier, healthier you, so eat right, stay healthy and keep a clear mind.
People that exercise require proper nutrition explains Leon.
“Don’t think that because you are training for a marathon, you can afford to eat three plates of pasta with cream cheese. No. If you are working towards a leaner body, you need to allow your muscles to recover. A protein and whole food rich diet that including nuts, fish, tofu, eggs, raw vegetables, healthy fats and a boost of antioxidants is ideal. Just keep away from simple sugar.”
In just six weeks, Belleon gets you in better mental and physical shape.
The benefits? Weight loss, increased work out capacity alongside improved agility, balance and core strength, overall well-being, a sense of calm and lowered stress levels.
As the mind and the body come together, the body eventually surpasses what the mind believes are its limits.
