    I bought the DVD collection just to get ideas for my classes...I find that it is very good. I like the setting, it looks like a gritty gym and I think from what I can tell it can give people a really good workout plan for those who have no idea.
    A friend of mine, who I loaned it to, said he loved the program.

    I've had the program for a couple of years. The P90x program is a well rounded program and I believe anyone using the program will see results. They need to stick to the full program though, exercises and diet, to see the results shown on TV.

    Couple words of warning:
    1. Tony Horton get's annoying really quickly.
    2. Sticking to the workouts can be a challenge.

    The workouts are an hour or more each done 6 days a week. Add in time to change, prep and clean up I started planning on 1 1/2 hour to two hours each day. Of course, the results are worth the effort.

    Tony Hourton gets real annoying.

    The workouts are fun but Yoga is stupid at almost 2 hrs. long.

    It works very well but you do have to stick to a good diet to get the TV results.

    I did p90x about 1.5 years ago, I got down to 6% body fat and was in amazing shape. It worked for me and I recommend it to anyone trying to push themselves. It kicked my butt and I enjoyed it! icon_biggrin.gif

    "alright everybody, call out your soups"

    That line haunts my nightmares to this day.

    I really enjoyed the program. My back and legs can do so much more now than they could before.

    A friend of mine just gave me this, he accomplished all he could with it so he happily handed it off to me. He looks REALLY good too. I just started this and its true, Tony Horton can get very annoying, very quickly. You just want to scream at the screen "STFU Tony, and just do the exercises already!" Another thing, some of the moves seem very advanced for a beginner. I wonder how someone say 25 -50 pounds overweight can do many of these routines, even I feel winded after doing them. Since I belong to a gym I'm not following the program to a T but maybe I should to see how "ripped" I can get on this program.

    Started this yesterday after 20 yrs of lifting because I needed something different and harder and it was cheaper than a live trainer.

    This combines weight training, yoga, and a couple different aerobic plans. Something I was looking for as a well-rounded, total mix.
    It's not a beginner program- I found following the leg plyometrics quite tiring.

    Yeah, Horton is really annoying, but the DVD's have a sound-off option you can use after you get familiar with the program.

    You will need a chin-up bar (a doorway bar can be used), a complete set of dumbells(!), and a very sturdy chair or low stool.
    I bought a set of loose plates and dumbell handles.
    It's up to 90 min, 6 days a week- plan accordingly.


    Judging by your pic, I don't know what you will get out of it- you already look fitter than Horton and his class (and what I hope to after I finish this).

    owenowen saidDoes it work?


    I had a friend who did that this spring. He was already pretty lean when he started but he definitely got a lot more definition as he followed the program.

    If cost is a concern try eBay for a used or new copy. I purchased mine there at a cheaper price. You may also be able to find a used more inexpensive copy.

    As long as you have the dvds and food/diet guide you should be good.

    I found that the music on those discs made the workout seem twice as long...turn the music off. I, too, found that I was hearing Tony Horton quotes while I slept.

    "I'm like a pterodactyl backin' out of trouble...KAW, KAW, KAW"

    "German Potato soup...Well, if that's not P90X soup I don't know what is!"

    "This isn't spray on! This is actual DNA removal!"

    "I'm all in your shtuff! I'm all in your shtuff!" while doing arm circles.
