My name is Christopher J. I am a 29-year-old firefighter in the Air National Guard who recently returned home from deployment in Kuwait. While I had been in decent enough shape to perform my training and duties here at home, after only a few days in the desert I realized that my fitness level was less than ideal for the harsh climate I encountered there. That was when one of my fellow servicemen introduced me to P90X. I was astounded with the rate of improvement in my strength, flexibility, endurance, and tone.
This program is simply the quickest, most effective and well-designed fitness regimen I have ever encountered. Even boot camp yielded weaker results in my overall physical fitness level! The 6 strength-building workouts, including the â€œAb Ripper Xâ€ focus on specific muscle groups without getting boring, while the plyometric, yoga (yes, yoga), stretch, and cardio programs hone in on flexibility, breathing, stamina, and balance.

There is also a kenpo disc that contains a fun, hard-hitting cardiovascular workout that jacks up your stamina, coordination, and quickness. By switching from workout to workout and following the plan, you can utilize the systems â€œmuscle confusionâ€ to avoid burning out muscle groups and hitting a wall, which really maximizes and accelerates your progress.
The workouts are intense yet enjoyable, due to the trainersâ€™ abilities to achieve real motivation and push you to continue without sounding like an annoying drill sergeant barking orders. In addition to the program itself, you will also need a pull-up bar, resistance bands, and/or a couple of dumbells. Other than that, all you need is a DVD player, a TV, and a small space to work out in.
Basically what Iâ€™m telling you is that, man or woman, fit or flabby, with a little dedication and around an hour a day from you, this system will, in return, give you a more attractive, stronger, more functional, and most importantly, healthier body than the one you have now.
I hope that this, coming from a former skeptic of workout videos in general, has helped you in making the decision, whatever it may be, to get healthy and fit.
