P90X was the program I started with,  and it has brought me great success in getting to my fitness goals.  I see so many people getting the program and immediately start popping the DVD’s into the player and hitting it hard quitting after a month because they aren’t getting the results they hoped for, BUT they didin’t bother to read any of the materials that came with itThis is an extreme program that gives extreme results. Period.  However, you will only get those extreme results if you follow the program as it’s laid out and you do ALL 90 days!

What is it?
P90X Tips and Strategies for Success

P90X® is a comprehensive in-home fitness and nutrition program proven to burn fat and reshape your body in just 90 days. So many times I see people who think they can just do the exercises and skip the nutrition, or just cut calories really low and get better results – they always fail.  They put the nutrition plan in there because it is an ESSENTIAL part of this program, read it live it love it.  Twelve different workouts target every area of your body, incorporating moves used by elite athletes, gymnasts, weightlifters, and martial artists.  In addition to doing cardio, strength training, and stretching, you’ll develop extreme overall fitness with body weight exercises like pull-ups and push-ups, as well as plyometrics (jump training), yoga, and kenpo.  Tony Horton demonstrates each move, showing a modified version for those just getting started. Most important, he’ll keep you engaged, motivated, and even amused every step of the way.  More than 3.6 million people, including numerous professional athletes and celebrities, have bought and used P90X to get in the best shape of their lives. P90X is the #1-selling extreme home fitness program in the world, with 1.2 million videos posted to YouTube® by satisfied customer. 

What makes P90X unique?

Most in-home workout programs offer only one kind of fitness training. But the 12 P90X DVDs give you intense cross-training with 5 hard-core resistance routines, 3 fat-scorching cardio routines, and 2 ab-ripping routines, as well as extreme yoga and advanced flexibility. You work all your muscles from every possible angle, using many different techniques. Whether you want to lean out, bulk up, or get ripped, there are endless ways to mix and match the routines to keep you motivated for the full 90 days and beyond. The other thing that makes P90X unique is Tony Horton himself. Not only is he an experienced trainer who’s devised the most efficient ways to get your body into peak shape, he’s incredibly engaging and inspiring, constantly encouraging you to “do your best and forget the rest.” He’s also been known to crack the odd—and we do mean odd—joke from time to time.  Imagine a cross between an upbeat motivator and a standup comic, and
you’re pretty close.

Step 9: Set a start date and keep me updated in your progress.  I want to know it all good and bad.  That way I can congratulate you on your success and get you back on track when you slip.  Besides, not all failures are your fault, and just maybe together we can figure out what’s going on to get you back on the road to success. 

Step 10:  Share your results.  You have something to be proud of, share it with the world.  You will also show someone who is in need of inspiration as you were that it can be done, and they are closer than they think to their success.  NOW GET TO IT!  Here is all you need to get started and transform your life.  In 90 days you will be a different person.  The change that happens on the outside is NOTHING compared to the change that happens on the inside!
