The P90X Extreme Home Fitness program is all the rage these days for those of us looking to get fit and get fit quickly. They promise to transform your body in 90 days.
Sounds perfect, right? But like many diet and fitness trends, it's hard to know what's really right for us and what's just hype. So, I talked to someone who's done the program -- a mom of two kids under 7 -- to see what she says about P90X.
Jenn started the P90X program on December 1, 2008 and finished in March 2009. I'm in awe of her results!
How did you find out about the program?
Like many people, I initially found out about P90X through a TV commercial. I had just begun a home program to lose the 50 pounds of pregnancy weight I was still holding onto after my two children. When I first saw P90X, I thought, "There is NO WAY I can do that." Now, I am so proud of myself for completing it. P90X really helped me to get in the best shape of my life.
Why did it appeal to you compared to other programs?
Seeing the results of the program participants was the first thing that attracted me. I could not believe the amazing body transformations in just 90 days. As I did a little research about the program, I really liked the way that P90X was entirely mapped out for me. All 90 Days had workout and meal recommendations to follow. There was no guesswork. With a 12-workout rotation, changing each week, I never got bored. The workouts always kept me feeling challenged and motivated to get better and stronger each week. I also liked Tony Horton as the trainer. He is very down-to-earth, yet motivating and inspiring at the same time.
How much did it cost you? Is that standard?
The program costs $120 retail. It is 10% off for Team Beachbody Club Members. Considering that this program is much less costly than a gym membership or personal training sessions, it is worth every penny.
