Are you ready for P90X? Beach Body includes a fitness test just to make sure.
The company claims that P90X is for people who are already in good shape and ready to maximize their results. COME ON NOW! P90X is marketed on late-night infomercials… How many fitness fanatics are up at 2:00 a.m. eating cheetos and watching infomercials? In reality, P90x is a great nutrition and exercise guide that allows real people to learn about fitness and nutrition. I am not an athlete. I have never been a fitness fanatic, but I am committed and ready to learn.
I must say that if you really out of shape, you will not be able to do a lot of the moves in the P90X routine. Modify and do the best you can. You will make progress, but will probably not have a six-pack in 90 days. 180, 270, or 360 may be more realistic, but you will get there if you can stay committed and eat right! As always, be careful and listen to your body.
