Where is the best place to buy it?

Either call 1-800-818-5174 or go to Beachbody.com to order it.  :cool:

I found it for $119 at Extreme Body Workout. It's the cheapest I could find. They also sell all the related gear for the same price as Beach Body does. Their shipping was super fast too!

I just stumbled across this post.  Congrats on all of you doing this workout.  I'm on my final recovery week.  Today is cardio and tomorrow is yoga and then done for my first 90 days.  I bought Insanity, but I think I'm going to do another 90 days of P90X.  I feel great and look forward to every workout.  Tony Horton and the Beachbody Team did a great job with this and anyone wanting to tone up and just feel better, should give it a try. 

One place you guys can look for a lower price is Craigslist.  Make sure you get as complete a package as possible.  You'd be lost without the calendar.  I've seen NIB complete sets going for around $60. 

I bought bands and Bowflex Selectech dumbells.  The bands have been retired in favor of a pull up bar that a friend loaned me.  I now use a band for only the corn cobb pull up.  I'd recommend the Selectechs to anyone over the bands....they are super convenient and give muuuch better results than the bands.

I was a very flabby 210 and now I'm a leaner more toned 190-192.  I don't follow the beachbody diet, other than I don't drink anything but water.  I read here and there, but not this whole thread...for the guy that didn't like Legs and Back...you gotta love Sophia in that vid....she's hot!

Namaste!

One more thing...the first week, I had trouble getting out of the car...I was so freakin' sore.  I swear the Yoga helped that.

The yoga does take some getting used to, but I agree it is very good for your overall flexibility. I know I can kick higher now when I do the kenpox video than I could when I started this. I also noticed that my overall posture is better now too, it is an amazing workout video program.  :-D

That's the one I tried a few weeks ago remember? Those are some SICK pushups!  :shock:

BTW: over 5 weeks now with absolutely not even a sip of pepsi or any other kind of soda pop.  :cool:

I am now at the point where I am getting really, really low on my stance for warrior 1, etc..... in the yoga x video. I can also put the yoga block in front of my feet when I am doing the seated hamstring stretches.  :cool:

I like doing the ohms at the end of the yogax video too. My wife does it with me now too, ....... we both take our deep breaths and go ............... Trans-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAmmm.  :lol:

I just found this thread, and read it. Last week my wife showed me this on a website. So, now after reading we just ordered it. It is going to be our new family activity. We have mountain bikes that were riding in the spring and summer, and we plan on riding them again soon. This will be an a$$ kicking experience from what I have read, but worth it as well. Wish me luck. I need to lose about 100 pounds. I will post pics of shamu before and after as I go along. I think it is great that you guys are encouraging each other, as it helps to motivate each other.

Congratulations, I know if you stick to it you'll lose the weight before summer. Chime in from time to time to encourage us too.  :cool:

I didn't work out today because I have felt like krap all day long, hopefully tommorrow I will feel better and can get back to it.  :-D

I haven't done mine all week either. I've been out of town for work, so I did workout in the hotel workout room, but didn't p90x it up. I'm going to try and do the next three nights before I head back out of town.

So, the p0x is on its way. Should get it this week sometime..... just in time for the holidays. I am hoping to start this and not be able to eat from the pain it causes. lol. Maybe I will not gain 10 pounds this christmas. That seems to be the only present that I get that I do not want every year. :-P

My wife ordered the original P90 a few months ago. She did it for about 3 weeks and then I joined in and did it another 2 weeks with her but I live in Texas and work in South Carolina so I'm not here most of the time during the week. Almost always back on the weekends. I don't know if I really lost any weight but I did feel better. Felt toner and more fit and that was just from doing it for a couple of weeks. Plus she was trying to follow the plan and then when I got involved we kind of ad lib'd which probably wasn't optimal.

So I've been thinking of having her order P90X and then making a copy of all the DVDs so I can take it with me on the road. That way we can both do the plan the way its supposed to be done whether I'm home or not. We already have the stress bands and dumbbells here and I could purchase a few things in SC easy enough. I've been thinking about this for weeks and reading this post really makes me want to go through with it. I'd like to try and follow the nutrition plan as much as possible too since what I eat is completely up to me when I am away from home.

I am the heaviest I've ever been at my life at 205lbs. I'm only 5'4" and I think my ideal weight is supposed to be 140lbs or something. I have been weightlifting on and off my whole life, esp when I was in the military so I'd just like to get back down to the 160s or 170s. Will keep you guys posted on what we do. For the one guy that mentioned it, I was thinking about doing Insanity too. One thing I like about it is, no equipment to buy. Just concerned it may be too much for us so we'll probably do P90X once or twice and then maybe try it.

BTW: over 8 weeks without any pepsi or soda pop. I hope I can completely break free of that habit, what a testimony that would be! :-D

Well, tomorrow I'm going to restart week 7. Being out of town most of the last three weeks for work really screwed me up. Then with all the weird positions I've been putting myself into to get to different locations in the plant I was working in, my compressed discs started acting up again. I'm feeling better today, so tomorrow we're getting back on track.  :cool:

The beginning of the new year is always a good time to start something new. I have been slacking big time because of work and the holidays, working late to have time off to organize things for the holidays, ........ and still behind.  :shock:

Both my wife and I are going to pick it back up on the week after new years. For now I am still on my completely soda free streak and eating much better so not such a bad thing IMO.  :-)

Yep, I'm right there with ya. I just finished week 7 and am going to keep on it hard from here on out.

Except for New Years Eve, because I've had a busy month at work and I'm getting drunk off my ass.

Although maybe I'll puke and then it will be like weight loss.  :lol: :lol:

Just started week four (recovery week). All I can say is WOW! I've never felt stronger in my life! I've lifted weights quite a bit over the years, but I was always "loose in the cage" as they put it in one of the videos. No longer! Best shape of my life at 42 years old and I'm only in week four! My wife and I are doing it together. She early in the AM and myself when I get home from work. Works out perfectly. Thanks to my wife, we're both following the P90X diet pretty diligently. So far I've only lost 8 lbs (185-177), but I've dropped 5% body fat (24-19%) and I've dropped 2" from my waist (36-34").

I'm nursing a little bit of a shoulder injury right now. It's a nagging thing I've had since I was in my 20's and yoga made it rear it's ugly head once again. I will not stop this program unless my arm is falling off! Anything less sounds like an excuse to myself when I say it. I do whatever exercises I can that don't aggravate it too much. The upright row is out, but I can do all the other shoulder exercises. Some of the yoga moves bother it quite a bit, but I still do what I can. I'm going to a sports medicine dr. next week to have it looked at and possibly get a cortizone shot so that I can continue the program, assuming that the MRI doesn't show any significant damage.

I have the same problem with a nagging ankle injury from high school. During the plyo workout it fires up, but I push through. By the end it is killing me, but an hour later it is gone. Not terribly worried about it.

Tonight I start week 8, my 2nd month recovery week.

My in-laws bought me some new workout shirts for Christmas. They were LARGES! I haven't worn a large since my junior year of high school.

Just getting started myself.  It was pretty hard and sobering to see the numbers and look at the photos.  Guess you see what you want to see and things easily get worse little by little.  I do want to thank all those who have posted in this thread.  It has been the kick in the butt I needed to get me started.  I haven't seen it yet on this thread but I am planning to post the pre day 1 pics and then post them every 30 days somewhat like they recommend for us to track our own progress.  Anyone else have pics to document the success they have been seeing (or at least the numbers from the test like chest, waist...)?

Congrats on getting started, I thank all of those that have contributed to this thread too, it has been a real encouragement for my wife and I, and has also given us a good kick in the butt as well to push harder when we are working out.  :-)

My wife and I both took before pics of each other before we started too, unfortunately I doubt I will want to post any until I am at the weight and size that I am striving for. My wife and I both have been seeing slow and steady progress in our waist sizes, so it is very exciting for us both, I can't wait until monday rolls around.  :-D
Bryan, .... a.k.a. Ricky Ricardo, .... you know, .... I love Lucy!!

We are getting ready to do the day 2 stuff, and I am going to be totally honest, I did most of the 1st day workout. but i did very small numbers. I did not want to push myself too hard, as I knew that what ever i did would be painful the next day. I tried to do 5 of everything. I have not been working out as long as the "pros" on the dvd have. lol. I figure that by week three of this stuff, i should be able to make some small gains, and being a realist, am not thinking any more positively than that. If I can do three more of each by then, I will be very happy. Remember what he says, "quality over quantity." That is what I am striving for as well. Thats my little update for now, will post again later tonight after the day 2 plyometrics. happy new years eve!

day 2 plyometrics was a butt kicker. :shock: seriously, i am that out of shape.  i think i only did half of the workout. it is brutal.
yesterday was shoulders arms, and the ab ripper x, i did the shoulder/ arms with out ANY problems, the ab ripper x while still difficult, was more manageable this time. today is yoga x, i am sure that it will be difficult as my body does not stretch much. i guess it will now.

     I know i seem to be negative about these workouts and the pain they cause, but truthfully, even though my muscles are VERY SORE, I feel better. I do not know if it is psychological or not, but I do feel a lot better, even though it is the middle of week one.
  I can tell you guys this, there were a couple of times that we almost took the day off so to speak, but we are sticking to it. that is the good thing about doing this with others, my family's support is amazing. I am so proud of everyones effort. I am sure that we will not miss a day, as this is part of our new years resolution. we are making a lifestyle change. I challenge all of you who have started the P90X to keep going with it. And anyone who has not tried it yet, If you want to make a change in your lifestyle for the better, check it out. You think that you are in shape, and you may be, but these dvd's will show you the truth. lol.
   Good luck guys!!!!! keep up the hard work!!!!! and may you prosper in 2010.

Workout pain, which is usually the worst for about 2 weeks after starting a workout regimen, is something that I hate and look forward to at the same time. After the first two weeks, the soreness is something that you start to actually enjoy. It lets you know that you're alive. The best bet if you're just starting a workout program, or returning to one after a significant lay off, is to just take it easy for the first two weeks so that you can still function in your daily activities. Then after that, you can "bring it"!

You'll also notice the soreness from each workout will peak two days after the workout and then fade off. That's the beauty of this program. Each one of the workouts perfectly dovetails with the previous workout. Just when you think you couldn't get more sore, you get Yoga, which is VERY difficult, but really helps tie everything together. Then, just when you can't take it anymore, you get "stretch X"! Once you get to the first "recovery" week, you'll begin to notice that the post workout soreness only lasts for a fraction of the time it did before no matter how hard you "bring it"! Then you'll just start to feel like a beast!

I really love that in the videos, Tony makes it a point to tell people to just do what you can do, making sure that you care more about form than the number of reps or trying, in vain, to keep up with the freaks on the videos.

I have to agree they Plyometrics was tough but it got me to thinking...I didn't really pass all of the prerequisite tests and that may lend some reasoning as to why I am having issues with some of the workouts but not others.  Did anyone pass all of the pre-tests?  I had troubles with sitting in a non-existant chair against a wall for the alotted time and 2 solid minutes of jumping jacks.  So far I have been able to do most of the workouts (still only on day 2) but notice I can't quite keep up with the instructors.  I figure this will come with time as long as I keep pushing myself.

I notice that I already have more energy for the rest of the day and plan to keep with my new year's resolution which was to invest 90 days in myself.  In fact, when it gets tough I say that out loud to keep me on track with the exercise I am currently on.

I also have to agree and will post pics and numbers AFTER the 90 days are up.  No sense scaring everyone away with only a before pic.
