Does P90X Live Up to the Hype?by Henry Hound on September 13, 2010
By now, you have all seen the infomercials for the P90x. They are famous for making the claim that you can attain a complete body transformation in just 90 workouts.
The big question, does it work?
After expecting this to be a big scam, I am actually surprised to tell you that it really does work. But that is… only if you do it.
|The workouts work. You can make pretty dramatic changes if you do these workouts—as prescribed.
The exercises are straight forward and doable for most people who have experience working out.
Most people report that Tony Horton (the instructor) is very motivating. For something this hard, it is great to have good motivator.
You don’t need a lot of extra equipment or a spotter.
Again, if the program is done as prescribed and your goal is to lean and defined – then this should do the job. It was hard to find a fitness trainer to say a bad word.
|You still have to “eat right” to come close to the results you see on TV
This is big time commitment. It is an hour a day of exercise and the yoga program is a whopping 90 minutes.
Some of the moves may be too much for those who aren’t in good shape [however, they do show you modified moves]
You need a pull-up bar for a lot of the sessions, you make the call.
Some people report that Tony Horton can be a little annoying (but the majority like him)
They up sell you their nutritional supplements on the DVDs which is a little much. You don’t need them.
P90X is expensive ($120.00), and the shipping is a whopping $19.95 with some bit about this being “Free” and “Express”. This part is definitely kind of scammy, but all of those television products do it. It must be part of the, “culture”
But, if you truly think you can commit to 90 days of craziness, don’t let that kind of thing stop you. The best thing to do is to find a good deal on eBay and Amazon.
However, If aren’t really gung ho, then the package is just going to gather dust.
The Real Key to Success: The Eating Plan
The package also includes a nutrition guide with meal plans, a workout calendar, a fitness plan and online support. They put you on a really strict diet, which is the real reason why people are losing so much weight!
The truth is, If you do the workouts and don’t follow the diet – you probably won’t lose any weight at all! The infomercial is slightly deceiving this way. I am not saying the workout isn’t great, but let’s be honest…
A Free Way to Lose Weight?
There is a great alternative to P90X that my pack loves. You might want to try these methods before committing to P90X (which is a big commitment). It’s a 100% free report I’ve put together that teaches you several proven methods to lose weight. In the Health Hound’s opinion, I would say that it’s a no-brainer not to at least give this free report a try.

Great download! I am a real skeptic – especially with downloads, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by your write-up. It makes sense! A friend recommended Sensa and after reading your site, I am (once again) too skeptical to try.”
