    I have a real phobia of using gyms, and last week i joined one anyway... tonight will be my first trip in there to work out and i'm not looking forward to it AT ALL. i want to work out at home again, since i can't go to a trainer in a studio anymore...

    i've heard nothing but remarkable success stories about p90x and i've met 3 people who've all had great results and all recommend it.

    have any of you tried this program? what do you like or dislike about it?

    I've been really thinking about it too

    but I don't like the idea of being cooped up inside the house .... getting out at least to a gym adds something to it

    A friend of mine expressed interest in this program. I have to wonder if it's worth the $150. I suppose it could be if you are really, really, really opposed to going to a gym. The workout programs on here are fantastic, but not something that can be done at home.

    I guess if the 3-phase nutrition guide is personalized to suit each individual, and it means the difference between doing this or not working out at all, it's worth the money.

    I too have been wondering about this product/ instructional video. I've seen some of the ads as well I've seen some you tube videos.

    For 150 bucks and testimonials, I would think that the small investment wouldn't hurt.

    I just started some of the workouts to get in shape for beach season and I've needed a wheelchair afterwards. These are kick ass workouts that are only for those who are serious. If you don't mind getting a little banged up then I definately recommend them!

    My partner just went through about 2/3 of the program and he has 30 more days to go. To support him, I stopped going to Gym for a while and I have been trying that out myself.

    This is the first for me to doing a workout program through DVDs. Although the activity is different daily, it is getting a little boring since I already watched the each DVD 5, 6 times. The workout itself is pretty good and it is quite demanding so you need to be in a decent shape to start the program. When my partner started the program, his body was not ready for it and after the first week, he had a symptom similar to a flu from the fatigue. I myself pulled some arm muscles in the first week because I did not know how many push-ups I was going to do in the first day and I pushed myself too much. After surviving the first week, the rest has been going well.

    The results? The weight and body changes are very gradual but visible. We are not following the meal plan exactly so I am assuming if we had followed the meal plan, we could have gotten more results.

    In my opinion, the program is decent and the instructor (Tony) in DVD does motivate you to push to reach your goal. I would recommend it if you think that you can stick with a program in DVD. I have never done any other DVD program so I cannot compare to others, though.

    I've been working out alone at home, but a friend got me temporary membership at his gym last week. Gosh, I had forgotten, there are some really HOT reasons to go to a facility!

    I did the P90 program which precedes the P90X which is extreme. I really like the program - watching the videos can get boring but at least you have the option of adding your own music. And I was linked into a gay men's message board which was very supportive.

    This program is intense but if done properly will provide results.

    My coworker has me doing some of the workouts and I started seeing results after the 3rd session. As long as you really commit yourself I think you'll get your money's worth.

    Im on day 82 of P90x and I have seen great results. I did not follow the nutrition guide for the first 30 days but then i went complete nutrition to the letter. I even weighed food...lol - nutrition is as much the key as showing up for the workouts. I totally agree you kind of need to be fit to start - I was not and it made the first 30 days less productive - now on the other hand I can do an incredible amount more by several hundred % than when I started. I'm looking to get a weight vest for pull ups for my second round I will be starting next month icon_smile.gif

    I have 8 days left and at day 70 I had lost almost 3 inches off my waist, about 4% body fat and about 9 lbs. Im not checking wieght etc until day 90 of course.

    Im new to posting here so not sure if it is ok to post links but this is a link of my results from day zero (god i was fat) to day 73 I believe.

    I have a friend here on RJ that loves P90 X and it has given him a good focus point for working out and has given him good results.
