Being Bruce -: P90X


What is it?

P90X® is a comprehensive in-home fitness and nutrition program proven to
burn fat and reshape your body in just 90 days. In fact, if P90X doesn’t get you
absolutely ripped in 90 days, you’ll get your money back.

Twelve different workouts target every area of your body, incorporating
moves used by elite athletes, gymnasts, weightlifters, and martial artists.
In addition to doing cardio, strength training, and stretching, you’ll develop
extreme overall fitness with bodyweight exercises like pull-ups and
push-ups, as well as plyometrics (jump training), yoga, and kenpo.

Your personal trainer Tony Horton demonstrates each move, showing a
modified version for those just getting started. Most important, he’ll keep you
engaged, motivated, and even amused every step of the way.

More than 3.6 million people, including numerous professional athletes and
celebrities, have bought and used P90X to get in the best shape of
their lives. P90X is the #1-selling extreme home fitness program in the
world, with 1.2 million videos posted to YouTube® by satisfied customers and
470,000 Facebook® fans.

Why is it effective?

The secret behind the P90X system is an advanced training technique called
Muscle Confusion™, which accelerates the results process by constantly
introducing new moves and routines, so your body keeps adapting and
changing throughout the 90 days.

This variety challenges your muscles and keeps them from getting accustomed
to the workouts over time, so you don’t plateau.

And because you’re working different muscles in different ways with each
workout, P90X makes it possible for you to “Bring It!®” hard every day, without 
the pain or injury that often comes from repetitive motion.

What makes P90X unique?
Most in-home workout programs offer only one kind of fitness training. But
the 12 P90X DVDs give you intense cross-training with 5 hard-core resistance
routines, 3 fat-scorching cardio routines, and 2 ab-ripping routines, as well
as extreme yoga and advanced flexibility. You work all your muscles from
every possible angle, using many different techniques. Whether you want to
lean out, bulk up, or get ripped, there are endless ways to mix and match the
routines to keep you motivated for the full 90 days and beyond.

The other thing that makes P90X unique is Tony Horton himself. Not only is
he an experienced trainer who’s devised the most efficient ways to get your
body into peak shape, he’s incredibly engaging and inspiring, constantly
encouraging you to “do your best and forget the rest.” He’s also been
known to crack the odd—and we do mean odd—joke from time to time.
Imagine a cross between an upbeat motivator and a standup comic, and
you’re pretty close.
