Q: What is the P90X?

A: P90X is a challenging fitness regimen that lasts 90 days.  It is based on the popular “Power 90” fitness program, and the X signifies the intensity of the program and some would say the “cross” training aspect of total fitness.

Q: How do I start?

A: Visit or an affiliate site and purchase the DVDs and perhaps some resistance bands if you don’t have access to dumbbells.  Review the program for a while before starting so that you’re prepared.

Q: Is this a weight loss program?

A: Technically no.  You will probably lose weight as you burn calories in these intense workouts, but you will also be building muscle tissue which actually weighs more than fat.  If you follow the diet and the exercise program, you will have a slim and fit shape.

Q: Do I need to buy lots of supplements?

A: You do not need to buy any supplements, but some, such as protein powder, can be helpful for building muscle mass.

Q: Do I need to work out for 90 days straight?

A: The workouts build on prior achievement, so you should definitely stick to the program.  If you have to miss a day, try to make up for it by breaking a sweat.  If you have to miss 2 days, you should consider re-starting that week again.  This assumes that the days you’re missing aren’t your rest day!

Q: What if it doesn’t work?

A: It works.  It takes time and effort.  If you don’t see the results you’d like in the first 30 days, give it another 30 days.  All it takes is exercise and a good, balanced diet.

Q: What Do I Do Afterwards?

A: Now that you’ve trained your body, put it to use and run, bike, swim, and keep doing the P90X routines.  Just because you’ve completed the training cycle doesn’t mean that you can coast on your laurels for life.  Fitness is a lifelong passion, and the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it.

    My 9-year-old son Mathew is a big fan of your program. He wakes up on the weekends and is doing a workout routine no later than 6:30 a.m. On school days he comes home and immediately starts his routine. Some days he wants to do more than one workout but I let him know it is unwise to do more than one as it can strain his muscles. On those days Mathew can often be seen watching your routines instead. Mathew is a baseball and hockey player and understands the benefits of being in shape for his sports. Mathew rotates his routines to work on all areas of his body. He discusses the benefits of same with parents, teachers and his physician who all partake in your workout routines. You have a big fan in my son. He previously sent you an email asking at what age you have to be to join you on your video. He looks every day to see if their is a response. I would be grateful to you if you could respond to him in some small way. Thank you in advance for reading my letter. Sincerely. Lori
