    The P90X workout program is by far the most successful workout program in the in-home fitness arena. Since its release in 2004, millions upon millions of people have used P90X to get in the best shape of their life. But as one of the most successful workout programs out there, it did not just appear out of the thin air. So how did it begin?

    P90X Workout Program – The Guru

    The trainer behind the P90X workout program is Tony Horton. Now, Tony was not born with a buff body. As a matter of fact, he had to work really hard to get to the excellent physical shape that he has today. His initial career goal was to become an actor and not a fitness instructor. But in Hollywood, your success as an actor depends alot on your physique. Therefore, Tony started transforming his body to pursue his goal to be an actor.

    Tony was successful in transforming his body, creating a better image and insight to life. And well…Hollywood started taking notice of him. He became one of the most sought out personal trainers. Many celebrities reached out to Tony to get them in the best shape ever for movie roles and overall physical well being.

    But it was when he met the CEO of Beachbody, Carl Daikler, that his cardio workouts which were helping his celebrity clients and himself transform, was recognized. This is when he and Beachbody began a profitable business relationship producing successful fitness programs. The first of these programs was “Great Body Guaranteed” in 1998. Following after came Power 90 one of the original home training workout videos.

    The Power 90 workout program was a huge success. Leaving customers asking “What’s Next?”. Beachbody and Tony Horton developed a more aggressive and intense program called the P90 Extreme Home Training Program or P90X for short. P90X was the workout system which produce the best results in the shortest amount of time.

    P90X workout program started becoming a household name with regular folks to celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Sheryl Crow and Pink using the program’s workout principles.

    P90X works on a very simple principle: Muscle Confusion. This principle is all about using different muscles through different workouts and ways. Before your body can adapt to the routine, the person will be shifting to another workout method. This is how it can deliver amazing results in just 90 days. Along with the workout, is a nutrition and diet plan which compliments the results of this workout program.

    As mentioned before, since the release in 2004, P90X workout program is continuously gaining more followers and customers. P90X was marketed in infomercials. In 2008, the P90X infomercial was named as the best selling infomercial in the United States. It is the most popular fitness program around. You will find thousands upon thousands of before and after photos of people who have received amazing results with P90X.

    Great review of P90X Lisa. I remember when I first heard about the program I was terrified. Finally I decided to try it and it was not as bad as I thought. Now I am completely in love with the program.

    I remember sitting on the couch and seeing he P90X infomercial for the first time. I was sure it was a scam. I blew it off for years. I wish I had joined the club earlier because it really can change your body in 90 days.

    My sister first told me about P90X. I watched it, and thought I could totally do this! It’s a challenge, and Tony is charismatic enough to push you just enough to get it done! I love the fact that he always shows modifications, and you can feel that he cares about you, even through the tv screen. Even though his jokes get old sometimes, the workout NEVER does! You keep pushing yourself to be better than the time before and this is one program that will mold your body into something amazing!
