Hey workout buddy,

I am glad that you have decided to get serious this time and that the yo-yo
tendency is behind you. We are here to help each other, right? Allow me to
share some things with you from the heart: :-)

My Beachbody experience:

When I first saw Tony Horton and the Power 90 infomercial in the middle of
the night, I said to myself, "This is exactly what I had been looking for!" Only
I really hadn't been looking, but it just hit me that I had been letting myself
go more and more until I was out of control, and I was so out of shape that I
almost didn't care anymore. But I knew it wasn't right. I had just heard a new
statistic on the news that week that said, "Being overweight was as bad as, or
'worse' on your health than smoking cigarettes!" "WOW!!!" I said out loud
when I heard that.

I want to be around for my family. The way I was going, it was only going to
go downhill from there unless I stopped messing around and got serious
about it.

When I got my Power 90 pack and started reading the Program Guide and the
Diet Guide, I began looking at this as preventative health care and something
I had to do for myself and my family. I followed each of the steps in the
Program guide. Page 20, Making the Power 90 Commitment is what got me
fired up. It was no longer whether I will do P90 or not, but I decided I WOULD
do P90 6 days a week. The only question then was "HOW INTENSE."

I wrote down my TOP THREE MOTIVATORS, and posted them on the fridge.
This really helped me!
Making the Power 90 Commitment
My Motivators Are:
1. I want to be fit, to be and feel healthy for myself and my family!
2. I want to get down under 194 lbs. & 22.8% body fat, to fit into my suit
pants and jeans.
3. I want to see if I can get ripped abs / a 6 pak!

I did all the things to help me keep on track: Photos, measure, weigh, at the
beginning and each 30 days. I put the before photo on the refrigerator, along
with my P90 calender. I got the Performance Formula and the Men's formula,
along with some good vitamins. This helped me a lot. I could tell the
difference the supplements made in my endurance, recovery and strength so
I could work harder.

Then for me, it was a decision of being consistent. Whether I felt like working
out or not didn't matter. Like the Nike slogan, "Just do it!" I just did it! And
when it comes down to it, I did it for myself, not to please anyone else, but I
did it for me, my family and for my health. :-)

Like Tony H. says, a train doesn't turn on a dime. It takes time to get it
slowed down, stopped then slowly headed the other direction. "Decide,
commit, succeed!" Those are not just words. If you do that this time, you will
succeed.

Debby, my wife, and I started P90 together, and we each lost 40 lbs. We now
see staying in shape and eating right as a way of life. We may fall off the
routine for a short time, but then we just make ourselves get right back on.

Friend, again I just wanted to share this from the heart with you and everyone
else who could identify with it. I hope it is an encouragement for you. :-)

Sincerely,

David

UPDATE: February 1, 2008
Hi, I'm a P90 grad and was doing P90X until I was sidelined by an injury about
a year ago. I am starting over again with P90. This is a great program. It is
great to be able to workout again, and feel fit. I am looking forward to the
health benifits by getting back into shape. "Bring it!"

UPDATE: May 31, 2008
I finished a round of Power 90 with great results on May 3, 2008. I did a
recovery week and I am now in my 3rd week of Power 90 Master Series,
Standard Program. I really like it. I feel in Great Shape. I am down to 204,
just 10 lbs. from my ideal goal weight for my height (6'2"). At this point I am
more concerned about my over all health. These programs are the real deal.
They are helping me with a healthy life-style to meet my fittness goals for my
health and my family.

UPDATE: August 25, 2008
I started P90X on August 25. I really like the X. I took it a little easy the first
week to get used to the routines and not get too sore. I love the variety P90X
has as well as the results I know it will give me. Come on Tony! X me!

UPDATE - November 22, 2008
Finished my First Round of P90X!!! I feel in great shape. My wife said she could see my Abs!!! Going to start Second round of P90X, LEAN version this time, December 1, 2008.
X me again Tony!

Update: I did a round of P90X Plus then a round of P90X Classic. I took some time off this summer from formal workouts because I have physical activities like mowing the grass (takes 3 hours) coaching my son's baseball team, biking, etc.

I am starting another round of P90X classic Sept. 13, 2010. I have gained back some weight and inches that I want to lose and get back in top shape for my health and my family.

========================

Since my last update, I finished that round of P90X in the fall of 2010; I continued with a round of P90X Plus, and another round of P90X into the spring and summer of 2011. I took the summer of 2011 off from working out because I was coaching my son's little league baseball team, mowing the yard with a push mower (we have 1/4 acre), and other activities.

The fall of 2011, I started my 4th round of P90X, and finished on December 24th. I took a couple of weeks of Recovery, while my P90X2 Delux Kit arrived.

I finished my first round of P90X2, with a few delays because of injuries. But I finished!!! WooHoo!!!

As of Saturday, May 26, 2012, I've finished my 3rd week of Round 2 of P90X2, and Phase 1. This time I plan to do 6 weeks of Phase 2, without a recovery week. Bring it on!!!
