When people watch my YouTube video, they are very surprised as to how quickly I got results by following P90X and the P90X Diet Plan. However, they don’t understand that my results are one of the fastest I’ve seen, and I’ve been coaching for a year and a half. So why did I get such quick results? For one, I used to lift every day back in college and muscle memory played a HUGE role with my quick transformation. My muscles “remembered” what it was like to be put through that much stress, and developed very quickly. However, muscle memory isn’t the only reason for my quick results. I completely changed the way I ate by following the P90X Nutrition Guide, and also completed all the workouts, even when I was sore to the point where I could barely move. Most people aren’t going to get results as fast as mine, and they have to understand that they have to be patient. Patience is a virtue with P90X!
A friend of mine, who I am going to Chicago with next week for the Beachbody Game Plan event, started the program VERY overweight a few years back. He didn’t instantly lose all the weight. Instead, it took him 5, yes 5 rounds, of P90X to get where he wanted to be. He knew that if he stuck with the program he could reach his goals. Today, over 110lbs later, he is in the best shape of his life and is completely ripped! He had to be patient with his results or he would never be where he is today.
The reason I’m posting this is because I occasionally get emails about how people aren’t seeing results quick enough. You have to understand that P90X is a complete lifestyle change and lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle, not just a 90 day program. For some people, it may take 2-3 rounds to reach their goals, and others it might take just one round. If you don’t see quick results like I did, there is no need to get discouraged. It just means that it’s going to take you longer to get ripped, which is just fine! So if you aren’t happy because you aren’t completely ripped 2 weeks into the program, understand that great changes take time. If you don’t have patience, you better learn it or else you will fail and quickly fall out of shape again.
