Video submissions for the new show is now closed, but you can still send in your photos for consideration for the show. Pictures speak a thousand words, so it's still kinda like an interview!

So send 'em in!

Doing the X is hard. Getting in the X-omercial is easy.

Here are the basics: You did one round of P90X. You crushed the program and have photos to prove it. I want to know who you are. So show me. Post you're results on this thread. And you can always contact me a nfarr@beachbody.com.

The next phase is you dust off your camcorder (or borrow one) and REALLY tell me. Interview yourself, or have a spouse or trusted friend interview you. Don't stress about production value—if I can hear you clearly and you're not a silhouette in front of a bright window then it's pretty much fine with me. I don't try to control the process. You're in control. You did P90X, so you should be strong enough to sit in front of a camera to tell your story. Remember, you might change someone's life with it. And people need the help.

Third phase is to shoot a little video of yourself doing the workouts. Let's see some dang pull-ups and Dreya rolls. Show some variety. Don't shoot whole routines, though, this is just to spice up your interview. Let's also see where you've been Bringing It. Let's see your copy of P90X, the TV or computer you follow along with. And if your child or dog wanders into the shot, let's see them too. In fact, send me photos or shoot anything you think illustrates who you were before P90X and who you are now.

Deadline is in 3 months

BTW, though I happen to believe P90X is a lifetime program, we tend to focus more on 90 day results. Usually couch potatoes can't visualize themselves any further into the future, not to mention P90X looks a bit intimidating (uh, 'cause it is), so 90 days is about as much challenge as we tend to show.

I do make exceptions to this rule.

The last phase is to send it to me at the address below.

3301 Exposition Blvd., 3rd Floor

Attention: P90X4 Submissions

Have fun with it and don't smash your face.

It just occurred to me that I may need to re-introduce myself to the X community. Carl hired me back in 2002 to follow Tony around with a camera to document the creation of what became P90X. You may have watched some of that process on YouTube. I became so immersed in creating the look and feel of it that I ended up treating P90X as if it were a movie (anyone notice that the time of day changes on the set? Probably not, but that's what made sense to me. And then of course there was Señor )

I also did the music for 8 of the workouts (and hired good friends to cover the other 3) because I couldn't stand running a loop in the background or having music that didn't match Tony's ever changing tempo. It was like scoring a movie. A movie that had a great deal of sweat.

Along with designing the packaging and taking the pictures of Tony and Dreya (in my living room actually), I convinced Carl to let me make posters out of some of the shots because to me they were like, well, uh, movie posters.

See? Frustrated filmmaker.

But then I had the opportunity to create the infomercials, which relieved some of the frustration. Storytelling at last! Only problem was I couldn't stand infomercials...thankfully Carl and Jon let me break the mold a little bit. But really all I did was take away the artifice: no film crew, no make-up artist, no director trying to get the exact right words, no b.s., and most importantly, no stretching of the truth. Thankfully in the years since, YouTube has made crappy home video acceptable so, it's easier to justify my methods. And lets face it, P90X is the real deal—there's no need for smoke and mirrors. You just speak. The storytelling is right there.

So, this will be my fourth P90X show and I'm more excited than ever by what I see. There are amazing stories out there, big and small, from a head-turning 90 day transformation to a multiple-round life changing metamorphosis. Now my friends is the time to share those stories with the rest of the world. So fire up those cameras.

Oh, and I'm married to Dreya, so yes, "lucky Ned Farr" as Tony says, just about nails it.

Ned,

Has there been any changes to the basic P90X program? I know about P90X+ but was wondering if your new infomercial will be unveiling a new an updated version of P90X. Thanks.

SO here I am...I've been through a couple rounds of P90X and I'm currently in a round of Xplus! I started out at 263 and now weigh in at about 208...I also was 34%BF at the start and currently at about 13%



Hey ned , was wondering..are you looking for just clips for the video, like 10 second stuff that you will edit inot a working piece later? does it matter what order things are on the video? and all ive got is a high 8...is that acceptable?

Mr Ned.

I doubt I am the kinda guy who would make a good candidate for your show.

I was the Poster Boy for Starvation Mode.
At 50 years old...I had NEVER worked out before. I ate wrong for decades.
The P90X got me to where I feel like a normal person... instead of a mis-shapen oddity.
My endurance, stamina and strength are all greatly improved, along with my over all health.
I still am no athlete, however... and I doubt I'd sell much product for you.

However... I wanted to thank you for the part you and everyone else at P90X has played in my transformation...
I hope to thank all of you in person next spring at the Summit.
I will have a full year under my belt by then... I dream of big changes, thanks to your team!

I am sure you are proud of the work you do, you guys and gals are definitly changing lives.

I am thrilled with my results... I start round 2 Monday.
It has had a HUGE impact on my life... I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new lifestyle.

I swear by all that is holy...I will NEVER go back.

Thanks again to all of you at P90X, Mr Ned.

Denver Dave

Hey Ned,

I'll be sending you some pics, video (better this time, trust me!) and work out footage.

Here's a current pic, taken in March at the end of Phase II in Round 6.

Hey Ned!

I've done a couple of rounds. I started out in 2005. Here is a cool comparison of my back. I got leaner and stronger. I lost 5% bodyfat that round:

Here is my boyfriend Bill Schlotman. He is 56 years old and was a finalist in the MDB game, winning $50K! He came back from a broken neck, which occurred in a mountain biking accident. We used the X to rehab him. He's awesome!

I think this commercial is going to blow away the former one. Not that the people in the commercial weren't motivational (they MUST have been, since I was inspired to buy), but I think there are people on this message board right now who have had even more amazing results than some of them.

With that said, I really did like the old commercial. In fact, when I woke up in the middle of the night last night and wasn't feeling well, I flipped channels until I found it. How many people can say that they actually LOOK for an infomercial to watch?

Seriously, everytime I see it on I watch it - and I've had p90x for a year and half now!
