P90X Review from a Woman's perspective

P90X is the number 1 infomercial in the country, and for good reason-it works!  If you bring it 100% in the gym and the kitchen, you will have amazing results!  I have become addicted to P90X because it teaches you the fundamentals of a healthy workout regimen, which is cardio and weight training.  Cardio alone can lead to injuries, as I took up running for several months, and ended up with a stress fracture in the 3rd metatarsal of my left foot.  Weight training alone can also lead to injury, especially muscle tears and ligament issues.  It's great that P90X incorporates both!  I learned everything I know about working out from P90X.

Bring it by order of Tony Horton!

P90X consists of 12 different DVD's, working out 6 days a week and one rest or stretch day.  There are 3 phases, which are broken down into 4 week segments, with the 4th week of the month always being the recovery week.  Don't think the recovery week is easy though, or you will be sadly mistaken!  Every month, you switch to different weight training workouts, thus the science behind muscle confusion.  I was sore the entire 90 days!
P90X also comes with a nutrition guide, which teaches the fundamentals of clean eating; the other half of the equation.  I would recommend following this plan no matter the extra cost.  You will also be surprised that you don't spend much more at the grocery store because you will no longer be eating out and will be buying fresh food instead of processed food.  If you aren't eating clean, your workouts will be in vain.  My husband and I followed the nutrition guide, and now I know that what I cook is good for my body.  It is amazing how great you feel after a few weeks on this diet.  Fast food literally makes me sick to my stomach now!
Tony Horton is the best trainer anyone could ask for.  He's a great combination of borderline corny and stern.  He jokes around a lot and encourages you to give your best to ensure the best results!  There's a part in plyo that always resonates with me.  One of the men in the video has a prosthetic leg and he is doing plyo, the hardest workout in P90X!  Tony says "I don't want to hear any complaining from ANY of you!"  That got me through plyo every week!
I have now been working out regularly for 15 months and have seen amazing results!  It takes a lot of dedication, motivation and perseverance, but you CAN do it!  If you commit to complete the 90 days, Tony and his team will help you do that.  It's hard, but since when do we get what we want?  We get what we work for!  Life is about hard work, and not instant gratification, which we all have become accustomed to in this world.  I will also help you reach your goals, please email me at letsgetasixpack@gmail.com for help and advice.  We can make this world a better, healthier and happier place, one person at a time!  Let me know what your goals are, and together we will do this.  I want everyone else to be as happy and content as I am now, and it all started with P90X.  BRING IT!!

Why do you need a coach?

Having a coach is a necessity if you want to succeed! Every competitive sport has a coach of some sort, and for good reason!  You need someone on the sidelines cheering you on and providing valuable advice and insight, which will catapult you to the next level and give you so much more motivation and accountability.  I initially had a non-existent coach, and I know I would have been much more motivated if I had a great coach there to help me out and answer any questions I may have.  If you currently have a non-existent coach, you can change at anytime and will be greatly increasing your chances of success! 
Surround yourself with people that you want to model your life after!  If you surround yourself with negative people, you will notice that you will slowly turn into those people.  
I want to help you succeed in every avenue in life.  Please email me at letsgetasixpack.blogspot.com or through www.teambeachbody.com/CoachTorri.  You DESERVE the best and I WILL provide that.

Working out is SO much more than looking good!!!

In my journey, I have been amazed at all the benefits of working out and having a clean diet.  I started P90X just wanting to improve my body and self image.  I could go on forever of all the changes that have occurred within my mind, body and spirit, not to mention drastically reducing the risks of horrible, life changing diseases!  I'm going to go over some of the changes and benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle that occur, so if you're thinking of starting down a path towards a healthier you, now you have even more reasons not to delay!  I'll break it down into 2 major categories:  Mind and Body

Increased Self-esteem
Increased Mental Focus
Reduced Depression-this plagues so many people!
Decreased Stress Levels

Decreased risk of heart attack, osteoporosis, and breast cancer-by up to 60%!!
Increased Strength and Stamina
Improved Digestion
Muscular Definition-one of the sexiest things on a woman and man!!
Improves appetite for healthy foods
Better sex life!  Who doesn't want that??
Enhances immune system
Strengthens the heart
Lowers resting heart rate
Makes the body use calories more efficiently
Burns extra calories
Better sleep! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Help prevent or lower cholesterol and blood pressure
Alleviates menstrual cramps

I could add to this list all day, but these are some of the big changes that will take place.  Once you get started, you will be like a runaway train!  Some other changes that have taken place in my life are: I'm now outgoing, active, motivated to help others, always want to learn new things and expand my mind, and the self confidence!  I now KNOW that I can do anything I put my mind to. 

Please contact me to start or continue this change in your life.  You WILL NOT regret it!!!  Visit my sites at www.teambeachbody.com/CoachTorri or www.myshakeology.com/CoachTorri.  Shakeology is an amazing meal replacement drink that helps you lose weight, reduces cravings, keeps you full, has over 70 healthy ingredients including whey isolate protein, amino acids, and tons of vitamins!  And for less than the price of a coffee or fast food meal a day, it's more than worth it!  What have you got to lose besides some weight?!

P90X and Beachbody

Hi friends!!  I am starting this blog to assist you with becoming fit, happy, and the best "you" that you can be!  I am addicted to Beachbody products and have been doing P90X and various workouts for 15 months now, with amazing results!  If you have something on your body that you would like to transform, I can help!  Before I discovered P90X, I was a lazy, depressed, unhealthy chain smoker with no hope for my future! I quit smoking in October 2009, 5 days after my 29th birthday because I was determined not to waste the last year of my 20's because I had wasted the previous 9 years.  I started working out in January 2010 but didn't have a CLUE how to workout the correct way!  Then, I saw the P90X informercial for the millionth time, but this time something clicked.  My husband talked me into purchasing it so we could do it together and we started on 2/1/10!  I completed the 90 days with great results, because I followed the nutrition guide and held myself accountable, not allowing myself to skip any days!  After that, I kind of fell off the wagon and was on and off with my workouts from May-October.  I was so upset by October that I had lost almost all my results, so I started running on my cardio days and lost 10 lbs in 2 months!  Well, due to loving running so much, I then got a stress fracture in the 3rd metatarsal of my left foot. 
I have been recovering from that fracture for 4 months now but have still been pressing play with P90X Shoulder/Arms and ab ripper 5 days a week and have lost 4 more lbs! 

I am now getting back to fast walking and will be purchasing Insanity, Asylum, or Turbofire to add to my P90X cardio days soon.  I love assisting people in their goals and would love to help you!  Please email me at letsgetasixpack@gmail.com.  This blog is just starting, but will soon have a wealth of information, including diet and workout advice!  Have a great day friends!
