The P90X Workout
If you've seen an infomercial or know somebody who's done the P90X workout routine, you might be wondering if it's for you. Rest assured that it is appropriate for a broad spectrum of people and body types, which the following articles explain in more detail. Tony Horton, the creator of P90X, was 45 years old at the taping of P90X, if that tells you anything about who can do it, and if you look on a place like the P90X Facebook fan page you'll see a wide range of ages and body types who participate, from teens to older adults.
It's an intense workout, but if you're willing ot put in the work you'll get results. I lost 25 pounds on my first round, check out my P90X success story at well as the stories of others. You might hear that P90X is not a weight loss program per se, it was designed more to help improve fitness. Indeed it's not an all-cardio program like many programs marketed as fat-burning programs are. However, if you're working out according to schedule and following the diet plan, if you've got weight to lose, it's going to come off. One advantage of it not being an all-cardio program is that it's well-rounded, balancing between cardio, resistance training, and yoga/stretching. Regardless if you have weight to lose or not, improved tone, strength and flexibility are ALWAYS a result.

The predecessor to P90X is Power 90, also by Tony Horton, which remains a popular product. P90X (Power 90 Extreme) is one of the most played infomercials on TV (although you'll probably run into the ones for Insanity, Turbo Fire or other Beachbody routines as well). While P90X is the 'core' routine, the P90X Plus and P90X One-on-One series exist as follow-on workouts. P90X2 is available now, for when you're ripped and crazy and ready for more. :)
