Very Happy I have just completed the 3month p-90x program.
I have lost 24 pounds, went from a size 11 to a 5 jeans.
I am 41 yrs old and my teenage daughter told me I have the body of a teenager again.
It has changed my life.
Thank you Tony.

P90X is a tough program. I started it May 7th and have a few friends doing it with me. We are all struggling a lot with many of the moves, but you have to modify the moves and stick with it. I started at 201 pounds near day 1. I'm only 3 weeks in and I am down between 190 and 194 depending on the day. Despite losing 6-10 pounds, I have gained a lot of muscle. My arms are showing drastic changes in their actual definition, my shoulders and upper back is broad.

I don't necessarily follow the diet guide they provide, but given that I ate horribly before, I have started to try and eat better and it has been helping.

Although P90X is an intense program meant for those that are already in decent shape, it can be modified to work for anyone that isn't significantly overweight, not just for those already in good shape. As stated before, I started at 201. I am halfway through the third phase of the P90X 90 day workout. I am down from 201 to 178-182, roughly 20+ pounds and I am more cut and toned than I have been in my life. I am looking forward to finishing this set and then starting it again.

Do you need any extra fitness equipment with it?

In my opinion it is best to have a good set of weights (resistance bands are ok, but it's difficult to guage the weight with different tensions), a pull up bar, and a yoga mat. Other than that, you just need a chair, a wall, and a good sized room to do the workouts. I highly suggest the foam mats under a carpet to reduce the stiffness of flooring.

I bought the one from BeachBody for like $50, but you can go to any sports store with weights and get one for $10-$40, dependind on how many different position grips you want. Any will work, but I do like the ones similar to the BeachBody.com one.
