Beachbody just announced that the they are remaking their very first fitness program called Power 90. Now, personally, I've never tried this program. It was very old, Tony wore short-shorts, it just wasn't for me. And by the time I caught Beachbody Workout Fever, Insanity had just come out, they were coming out with Asylum and P90X2 so P90 seemed pretty outdated (check out the retro video here--it takes a few minutes to see actual footage from the workout but it's pretty hilarious!)
Surprisingly though, Tony hasn't seemed like he's aged much since his P90 days!
Anyways, with P90X, P90X+ (a little known program but pretty cool if you haven't checked it out!), P90X2, and now P90X3, why redo P90?
Well, for quite a few reasons, actually!
Many, many people have gone through P90X and have lost A LOT of weight, so yes, it can work as a weight loss program. But the original intention behind P90X was not as a weight loss program---it was meant to take those with a moderate level of fitness to the next level---extreme fitness.
That's the whole reason that they put the Fit Test into the program (which very few people actually do... myself being one of them!)--to discourage those who aren't really ready for something like P90X to choose something more appropriate (like P90!)
But they marketed the program so well that EVERYONE wanted to try P90X! The infomercial became so popular (and believe me, it came over time--it wasn't an overnight success) that everyone wanted to try it and it eventually became the household name that we all know and love today (well, love to hate!)
About 7 years after P90X they came out with P90X2, which at first wasn't very well received either has become the go-to training program for athletic training. Yes, it is very different than other programs but if you look at ANY other training programs out there geared towards athletes, when it comes to balance and core strength, this is the TOP program.
And just this past year they developed P90X3, which is geared towards busy people (who don't like an hour and half of Yoga from P90X) and need to get workouts in in 30 minutes or less. Many similar exercises from the original X and X2, just compressed. This is by far one of my favorite programs as there is so much variety!
But still, even though there are modifications presented in P90X3, as well as in X2, it was not "geared" towards beginning level fitness challengers.
Hence, the remake of Power 90. This is truly going to be Fitness 101. So with the launch of this program, I want to throw out a full year long Challenge for those that are ready for it. If you have been wanting to start at a real Fitness Level 1 and progress up to Elite Athlete, join me for a full year of training with Tony Horton at home. I want some AMAZING results for 2015. Power 90 launches in October so we'll start in November of 2014 and go all the way through November of 2015.
I'll have a private challenge group set up for just these specific Challengers and we'll stick out for a FULL YEAR! 90 days of P90, then we'll progress onto P90X3, then P90X2, and then finish with 90 days of P90X (and yes, that is the recommended progression---get your base level with P90, build upon your base skills with X3 but not overtaking your body with an hour long workout, building your balance and core strength with X2, and then getting your pumped and ripped with P90X).
3 months each x 4 programs= 12 months and crazy results!
Yes, there is a commitment of eventually getting all 4 programs (just get them as you go, though! You don't need to buy them all at once!), staying on Shakeology for the full year, and committing to the group for the full year.
