What is P90X® Certification?

P90X Certification is a program offered by Beachbody®, enabling participants to become a P90X Certified Professional upon successful completion of both the P90X Qualification online learning program and a two-day live P90X Certification Training Workshop. At the Certification Training Workshop, participants will learn about the many facets of P90X, and be tested on their knowledge of P90X and the practical application of the P90X moves. Passing the Qualification online learning program and the written and practical exam during the Certification Training Workshop is required to become P90X Certified. As a P90X Certified professional, you can lead P90X group exercise classes and train individuals in P90X to maximize their fitness results. This includes providing expert guidance, support, and motivation in all aspects of the P90X program.

How do I get P90X Certified?

In brief, there are two steps in the P90X Certification program. You can register for both of them by going to www.P90XCertification.com. The first step is to complete the P90X Qualification program. The second step is to attend and complete a P90X Certification Training Workshop. You can purchase the complete P90X Certification Program, which includes both P90X Qualification and the P90X Certification Training Workshop for $498 (plus any applicable taxes). Or you can purchase each step separately. P90X Qualification costs $99 (plus any applicable tax). P90X Certification Training Workshop costs $399 (plus any applicable tax). Please note that while you can sign up for the Certification Training Workshop without completing P90X Qualification, you must have successfully completed P90X Qualification at least seven (7) days prior to attending the Certification Training Workshop. Shortly after purchasing the complete Certification program or the P90X Certification Training Workshop, you will receive the P90X Certification Curriculum Binder in the mail. It contains valuable detailed information on the P90X program that you cannot obtain anywhere else. It is critical that you read the material in great detail prior to attending your live Certification Training Workshop. Upon successful completion of your Certification Training Workshop, including passing both the written and practical exams, you will be P90X Certified.
