Anyway - I have read reviews and am wondering if I am not in good enough shape to start this. I like pushing myself but don't want to spend the 120 and not use the workouts...any advice is greatly appreciated!!!
You can def do it. I'm in crappy shape. I probably couldn't run a half mile without stopping. I have done P90X for 2 months. I've noticed my endurance has really improved. I ran a mile today no problems. I do all the pushups on my knees- there are a ton of pushups too! I wouldn't worry too much- If I can do it, you can do it.

DH called me into the bedroom this morning and says, turn the TV out there to channel 26, I think we should buy this. It's the P90X commercials!

 

I like the idea of us being able to workout together, it really helps me to have someone to workout with, but I'm a little scared!

I have never heard of this. I NEVER EVER work out. Well, last summer I ran some at the park. Other than that I never work out. Do you think if I start slow that this will be a good thing for me? FI and I have been wanting to do something to kick start our butts to getting fit for the wedding.

i just finished the chest and back. i find the guy quite annoying. but after you know the exercises, just mute him. his jokes are terrible. i'm not in good shape, and i really didn't work that hard for the first 2 weeks (i'm in the third week now) but i still lost 9 lbs...and i was only 133 to start with. i'm telling you ladies....these dvd's are a godsent! what they do on the videos are EXTREME, i would never expect to keep up with them....but, i do what i can, and it works for me!!!

 

its awesome....so glad we bought them!

I bought these DVD's and finished my first 90 days and now am in my seventh week of the second 90 days. I started with the "lean" program and now I am doing the "classic". I absolutely LOVE these DVD's and workouts. I have always worked out and was really into the Turbo Jam (also by Beachbody) but really wanted to test the P90X out before the wedding. I already worked out 5 days a week and rarely missed a day, but this program requires you to work out 6 days a week and I truly stuck with it everyday- even worked out the DAY of the wedding and throughout the honeymoon (my DH thought I was crazy!!). It really got me into the best shape and just really kicks your butt! I HIGHLY recommend these to anyone thinking about it. I purchased the set on ebay to save some money, but I am so glad that I did. I debated for months on whether to purchase them, but they are totally worth the money.

I think the thing that excites me the most about getting these videos is that DH wants us to get them too and wants to do the workouts together. I used to be so good about going to the gym 4-5 times a week when I had a friend to workout with, its so easy to say I'm not going to do it when someone else isn't saying, "but we have to".

 

I'm trying to win some on ebay, I was hoping to get them a little cheaper, but it's not going to be much cheaper, apparently they are very popular!

I don't think they are any cheaper on ebay anymore. They are really popular. If you get them from beachbody & don't like them you can return them for your money back.

I recently got turbo jam. I love it! There are a few girls I work out with reguarly. We split the cost of the set. We did Cardio party & Ab Jam tonight. It's a blast!

I love working out at home. We can talk during the workout, workout on our schedule, & be as silly as we want. It's a little hard to fit 3 of us in the living room kicking at the same time, but we make it work. 4 would be a really tight squeeze.

We do another at home workout I call "dance dance revolution circuit." It's a rotation of DDR, pilates & weights.

I just bought P90X- thanks to you all! I dont have enough variety of weights at home yet but I did the shoulders and arms workout yesterday with just the 8lbers I have. It was fun! Once I'm all set up with weights I"m going to do the real program for the 90 days. I want to get toned and i think this will push me! Thanks for the recommendation, BDW!!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
