Is 30 minutes really enough?
If you’ve been following any of the latest in fitness news these days, you’ve heard Tony Horton has released his newest program, P90X3. I decided to give it a try and give an honest review of each of the DVDs in the package here on this page.
DISCLAIMER: Yes, I am a Beachbody Coach, which means I get to buy mine at a discount, and although it would be cool if you bought one from me, too, I am not here to push anyone into something that is not right for them. So read the reviews (the good, the bad, and the ugly) and watch some of the video clips, then make up your own mind. If you have questions, please comment below or connect with me on Facebook. If it helps you to be a part of a group of people all trying it out together, I have online challenge groups monthly, where you can get awesome support and accountability.
Click on any one of the links below for a short P90X3 review/description and video clip of each workout. If you want to more updates on this or other new workouts coming out soon, fill out the form to subscribe, at the bottom of this page.
Is 30 minutes really enough time to get a good workout in and change your body? Being that I am still at the beginning, we will have to see about that, but I do know people who were in the test group who got amazing results, so I’m going a little on faith there. P90X3 claims that according to research, the best effects of exercise are felt in the first 30 minutes. Let’s hope that research works on me. :)
So here is the “good”, “bad” and the “ugly”…
The best part about this workout is the TIME. I’m a busy mom, so not having a home workout that I can do in the mornings or right after work is a plus for me. Of course, P90X3 is a Beachbody workout, so it’s made by some of the best in the business. It’s designed to be done at home with little to no equipment. Once you buy it, there is no additional cost involved. The moves are fun, dynamic,and involve multiple muscle groups.
Some people don’t really like Tony Horton’s cheesy jokes (I don’t mind it that much), so I guess that could be a drawback. There is actually a setting where you can follow along on silent, with just the on-screen music, or play music of your own in the background.
People have told me they get discouraged because they see the people on the DVD as super fit beasts, and here we are in “real life” as regular Joes – striving to lift our legs high, straighten our knees, and just basically keep up.
I’m living proof that even if it feels “ugly”, who cares? Staying consistent will eventually bring you to a point where your form will improve, so don’t sweat it – as Tony says, “Do your best and forget the rest”… and besides, if you want to feel better about YOUR form, just take a look at my video reviews and I’m sure you’ll tell yourself that if that 40-something-year-old can do it, so can you!
P.S. The new Core de Force program is here! Read my reviews of that one here (includes more videos)! CORE DE FORCE REVIEWS
