So far, P90X is worth the money I paid, but I would hate to have to go through the waiting and phone calls
While everyone else has said that they absolutely love these videos and the workouts on them, I have had nothing but problems with them. I have had three sets of these DVD’s sent to me and I might have been able to get three DVD’s to actually play.
I have had the company I purchased them through on the phone almost every other day just to try and get this stuff fixed, but nothing seems to work. I even had one customer service rep tell me that there was a bad batch of DVD’s used at one point and that is probably what happened with me.
While I do understand that things can go wrong from time to time, having three sets show up at my door that I couldn’t actually use is a bit upsetting. I have paid very good money for this program and I would like to be able to use it.
I have finally received my fourth set from the company and it seems as though these ones will work out just fine for me. I have already delved into the first DVD and find that the exercises are just difficult enough for me to have a challenge, but not too difficult so that I want to stop and give it all up. So far, they are worth the money I paid, but I would hate to have to go through the waiting and numerous phone calls again in order to get a working copy.
This workout system is highly efficient for whichever your personal fitness goals might be.

Like others that have reviewed the P90X system, I found it to be a bit much to handle at first. There were quite a few times when I thought this workout system was a bit beyond my abilities, but soon got used to the vigorous workout and it became easier as I went along.
If you have never done a workout before, then you should probably pass this system by. You will be intensely frustrated by how it treats your body in such an extreme way. The exercises will let you know what muscles you have been working out and which ones you haven’t used your entire life, that’s for sure.
If you are planning on using this system and you have kept in pretty good shape, then you shouldn’t have any problems. The hardest thing I had to get used to was the nutritional guide as I have been using the same diet for so long. After a few mishaps with the directions, I figured it all out and now I am in the prime physical shape and wouldn’t want it any other way.
There is nothing easy about this system, but the results you get for the work you put into it is well worth the frustration in the beginning. You could probably find cheaper workout systems available, but none of them are going to give you what the P90X system can give to you. If you want the body of your dreams in only 90 days, then this is the workout system you should purchase.

I wanted to go out on the beach and have all the guys staring at me, so I decided to get the P90X workout videos
I have been in pretty good shape most of my life until I had three children. While I didn’t really lose my body like some of my friends did after they gave birth, I still wasn’t very happy with the shape I was in.
I wanted to be able to go out on the beach and have all the guys staring at me, so I decided to get the P90X workout videos. Let me first say that if you aren’t used to exercising like this, then you are going to be in for a surprise!
The first couple of days was very hard for me to get over. I really thought I was going to give up and stop working out, or find something a bit easier to handle. But I dug in deep and made up my mind to finish what I started. Making that decision was even harder than doing the workouts with the videos, but I am extremely pleased with myself for making it. If you can find that fight inside you and make it through these workouts, then you are going to be very happy with the results you end up with.
If you want the best body you could ever have, then you will need to make sure that you are willing to put the work in. Sure, this system is fast with the results, but it’s only fast if you can handle the amount of effort you need to put into it every day.

I have spent years at the gym trying to maintain my body and health but it became a financial hassle after I was laid off. One day I was sitting at home and saw the infomercial for the P90X system and decided I would give it a try. Boy, was I surprised after that first workout!
It had only been a couple of months since I stopped going to the gym but the P90X system made it seem like I had never worked out in my entire life. I have never been as sore as I was during that first week on this new system, but it was worth it once the results started to show.
I have maintained my body mass and weight with the P90X system and found that after the initial 90 days, I can get away with exercising once a week for a couple of hours and still be in the same shape. That tells me this system is a winner since you can adjust how you use it after you finish the initial 90 day program. Once you have your body where you want it, you can simply choose when and what you want to maintain and go from there.
Even after missing a week (I was out of town), I was still able to jump right back in on my next workout without any hassles or stiffness. I would suggest this workout system to any of my friends and family members, and often have.

I decided to try the P90X workout videos because I wanted to have a rocking body on my wedding. I knew it was going to be difficult and that I would have to stick with it to get the results that I wanted, but I never thought it would be this difficult.
I have never worked so hard at something in my life, but for some odd reason it never actually felt like I was working. It was more like I knew I had to keep going regardless of whether or not I wanted to. I needed to maintain my commitment and the P90X system made it fun to keep going. Not every work out video system I have tried before did that.
The good news is that I had to have my gown taken in three times by the time I was done with the 90 day workout and that was more than worth the amount of money for the system. My husband was very happy to see how great of shape I was in during the honeymoon, too, but we won’t get into any of that!
Let’s just say that I was able to convince him to give the P90X system a try and now he is in the best shape of his life, just like me. I wouldn’t give this system up for all the money in the world and I am sure that you will feel the same way as I once you start seeing your results.
