Tony Horton Review – Should You Do His P90X Workouts?

Tony Horton is best known for creating P90X years ago.

P90X was the first workout program my mom and I ever tried and knew this was what an advanced workout looked like. We had done other at-home workouts before, but none of them had as much variety, notes on using proper form, or an in-depth meal plans.

We admit though, P90X was tough for us! It was over an hour long and really tough. Tony Horton took that into consideration and created P90X3 and P90. P90x3 is the 30-minute version of P90X, and P90 is the beginners level.

He also created P90X2 – the beast of the series – in 2012 for P90X graduates. Talk about intense! Tony Horton knows his fitness though; he not only is responsible for a mass movement for at-home fitness, but he’s a live trainer as well.Tony Horton in Person

He’s worked with people in his local studio in Santa Monica, offers 3 events each year around the country to help people reach their goals, and visits our troops abroad.
Tony Horton Review of P90X

We’ve met several of Beachbody’s trainers,  and while they are all very nice and down-to-earth, Tony has to be the most genuine, likeable person you could meet. While on a Beachbody cruise, he checked in when we did, ran on the track with everyone else, worked out in the same gym, and even remember people’s names and hometowns.

He said something that stuck with me too – he said that when you have success, you have two options. You can let it go to your head or just keep being you.  

It sounds so simple, and he sure makes it look simple. It’s a challenge for people though – just like at hollywood.

He is a very sweet guy, and he will totally kick your butt in his workouts.

Here’s a Little More about P90X

Tony Horton developed a P90X-program for every person’s goals. Each program is developed into 3 phases to create muscle confusion and get you maximum results quickly (it’s how celebs train for max results before a movie!).

P90 – P90 was actually the first program he created for Beachbody, but they just completely redid it – new workouts, new nutrition, new marketing. It’s SUCH an improvement. The original was great, but the quality of the videos and nutrition plan is so much better now.

P90 is the beginners version of P90X. The workouts are 20-45 minutes long, and they are a mix of strength, cardio, and flexibility. They are low-impact to protect the knees, and gradually increase intensity each month to keep your body challenged and results coming!

Tony Horton Review of P90X3

P90X – P90X is the intermediate to advanced workout program. It has specific calendars for YOUR goals which I love. It also has a lot more variety than P90 because you’ve built up the strength and endurance you needed with P90. P90X includes plyometrics, ab work, martial arts and yoga. The workouts are mostly an hour long, has a mix of high and low impact, and the nutrition plan is awesome.

P90X2 – HOLY MOLY! You do not want to start here unless you are a true athlete. This workout is like doing P90X on one leg. Each workout is about an hour, and it’s very similar to P90X but more advanced.

P90X3 Tony Horton  Review - Pros Cons and Picking a Schedule

P90X3 – P90X3 is not the continuation of P90X2, but it’s set up the same way as the others. P90X3 is like doing P90X in 30 minutes. It’s intense, but it’s short lived. This is my favorite program out of all of them for an intermediate to advanced exerciser. Every workout is 30 minutes and offers a lot of variety.

Check out this article to see if you should start with P90X or P90X3 first if you’re an intermediate exerciser.

Another beginner workout not included in the p90X series that is developed by Tony is the 10 Minute Trainer (read my review on 10 minute workouts here).

We cannot say enough good things about Tony Horton’s personality or workouts.

Body Beast Review – Is it a Good Workout for Women?

Body Beast looks like a man-only clubhouse at first, but I love heavy lifting heavy weights.
