P90X isn’t an ab product per se, but there is an abdominal component to it. Besides, I doubt if your abs are the only part of your body that you want to look good anyway. So, I decided that P90X was worthy reviewing. I had a difficult time deciding on an overall rating for this product though. As you can see, in the end I settled on 4 stars. I was torn on this one because I love P90X and I think it is a great product, however some people may not be ready for it. It is intended to be extreme (that is what the X stands for in P90X) to produce extreme results. If you’re not yet ready for an extreme workout program, you should consider one of the other exercise programs made by the P90X company. They make several great programs and most of them aren’t nearly as intense as P90X.

Creator

Tony Horton is the creator of P90X. Horton is an inspiring actor turned trainer to the stars. He has been involved in the creation of several in home workout programs. He is a good motivator and makes the program interesting.

Content

P90X is an in home DVD workout program. It comes with 12 DVDs, each of which has a different focus (one of them is completely devoted to getting great six pack abs). The program also comes with a fitness manual and a nutrition manual. The program is very comprehensive. The manuals come with worksheets you can use to track your progress as you workout. There are also meal plans that give you the option to follow some guidelines on what to eat or to follow an exact meal plan so you don’t even have to think about it. Overall, I think the content of the program is excellent.

Skill Level

Maybe skill level isn’t the best name for this section. P90X doesn’t really require any special skills, it just takes a lot of hard work and dedication. The workouts are intense and it takes a little time to get used to it. I might have been tempted to give P90X five stars if I didn’t think that some people would have difficulty with the intensity of the workouts. P90X requires you to workout for an hour to an hour and a half, 7 days a week for 90 days strait. That is why I say it takes a lot of dedication. That is a serious commitment, so make sure you’re ready for that.

Price

The price of P90X seems to be in line with other exercise programs of this type. It is more expensive than an e-book program, but a lot less than a gym membership or a personal trainer. The quality of the products is excellent, so it’s not like you are paying for low quality stuff. The P90X DVDs and manuals are all very professionally put together. Is it worth the money? I think so, but you’ll have to decide for yourself.

Guarantee

When you buy P90X, you get a 90 day money back guarantee. They say if you don’t get great results in 90 days, you can have your money back. You’ll have to return the DVDs though. P90X is backed by a good company, so I have no doubt that you will be able to get your money back. I didn’t return mine though, so I don’t know how smooth the return process will be if you try it.

Purchasing Process

No PayPal or anything like that for this one. You’ll have to use a major credit card. They have their own payment processing page, so you will have to feel comfortable giving them your information. They have the VeriSign seal on their page and they are a respectable company, so I wouldn’t be concerned about it.

Negatives

Overall, this is a great product. The only negatives I have are what I mentioned above. Some people may not be ready for the intensity of P90X. Also, it’s a big time commitment. If you think you will have a free hour to workout everyday for the next 90 days then this shouldn’t be a problem. If you don’t have the time, you should check out one of the P90X sister programs.

Conclusion

That’s pretty much it. I hope this review helped you decide if P90X is right for you. I think P90X is great and I was very pleased with my results. If you think P90X is a good fit for your fitness goals, you can order it at the P90X website.

  1. Found your link on Twitter.

    I have to agree with everything you said above, most notably that it is NOT FOR BEGINNERS. I was hard core in Phase #1 of the program, doing the workout at 5am or 9pm. I made sure I did it with my abnormal schedule.

    With Phase #2, I had to scale the workouts back. I skipped the cardio workouts. I consider myself to be in good shape already, so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend that anyone else skip the cardio workouts.

    In a nutshell, my recommendation to other people would be to commit to the program but to fit the program into your life. Six days of work and one day of recovery is overkill in my opinion.
