    I tried the program for a few months. If you can do the same thing, day in and day out, listening to the same bad jokes on the CD, day after day, you may get benefits...however it did absolutely nothing for me. I went back to my regular TV aerobics that I had taped. I did better with them and it was free.

    I just ordered it. The only bad thing I've heard from those who have used it is-it's tough. After 40 years of being the skinny white guy (my nickname used to be Bones) I'm game to try anything.
    If you end up ordering it, I'd like to keep in touch and swap updates.

    Good Luck!

    I did the program over a year ago. It was a great program while I didn't have a gym membership. 30 days was enough for me. Unfortunately it got old for me after awhile. Not sure that it was worth the cost. The nutrition segment is difficult to follow and the recipes are weird. I prefer reading Muscle and Fitness and changing up my plan when I get bored. If you are starting out it can teach you good form and discipline. Cheers.

    I've seen parts and it looks pretty good
    I like the idea of incorporating many different types of exercises in a routine
    it makes for a better over all workout

    It also looks to be taken from the Gym Jones philosophy
    this is the trainer that was used for the guys in the movie "The 300"

    Take a look
    ...I've incorporated some of the moves into my routine
    and it's made a BIG difference

    It was good. I learned lots of workout techniques from it. That being said, it can get repetitive and I did not follow the diet strictly.

    We followed it precisely for about a 90 day period. We also had a pretty good collection of weights in my home gym that you need to do many of the exercises. It is hard and good. The plyo section had me throwing up at first but that was a good thing. It ends up being a lot like cross-fit. If you're looking for a way to get into weight lifting, it is very helpful in teaching a lot of fundamentals (including some great stretching and warm up techniques). But if you're an experienced lifter, and know your way around a gym, it is more an addition rather than a replacement. I still think lifting heavy is the ticket and this is more functional training which is less isolating.

    Any fitness program that advertises a number of days, means that they have that number of training sessions for you. It doesn't mean you only do it for 90 days, these programs are also meant to create healthy life style habits that you need to sustain with dedication if you want to see continued results.

    Really good point. When we did P90x we were using my condo's gym (to which I'd added dumbbells and an incline/decline bench). We were doing decent routines but really didn't have an organized approach. We just didn't know. The P90x helped us understand the logic of working out and the need to be constant in our schedule (which tuned into 6x/week). We benefitted but past a certain point, you still need to push heavy to get size.
