What is it?
P90X is a comprehensive in-home fitness and nutrition program proven to burn fat and reshape your body in just 90 days. In fact, if P90X doesn’t get you absolutely ripped in 90 days, you’ll get your money back.
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 bodyweight exercises like pull-ups and push-ups, as well as plyometrics (jump training), yoga, and kenpo.
Your personal trainer 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 customers and 470,000 Facebook fans.
Why is it effective?
The secret behind the P90X system is an advanced training technique called Muscle Confusion, which accelerates the results process by constantly introducing new moves and routines, so your body keeps adapting and changing throughout the 90 days.
This variety challenges your muscles and keeps them from getting accustomed to the workouts over time, so you don’t plateau.
And because you’re working different muscles in different ways with each workout, P90X makes it possible for you to “Bring It!” hard every day, without the pain or injury that often comes from repetitive motion.
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.
All you need to do P90X is a couple of dumbbells or resistance bands, a place to do pull-ups, and about an hour a day.
