Before I began P90X, I was very narrow minded and thought that I could only get in a good workout at the gym. I was in the gym 6 days a week for 4 years straight while I was in college, and do you think I believed in a workout program that you watched from your TV? Heck no! In fact, I laughed when I saw infomercials on TV claiming that their program could get you into shape all from the comfort of your home! I mean, how could I get into excellent shape from a little DVD home workout program? As skeptical as I was, that all changed when I saw the P90X infomercial.
I decided to purchase the program because of the intensity and uniqueness of the exercises. I knew this program was what I needed to get back into shape after becoming a tubbo from laziness and lots of ice cream. When I say lots, I mean LOTS! I’m talking 3-4 HUGE bowls a week right before bed! Anyways, I purchased the program and it was the best decision I had ever made! So what are the benefits of a home workout system rather than going to the gym?
(1) NO GYM MEMBERSHIP FEES! For some reason people don’t quite grasp the concept! They complain about P90X, Insanity, Slim in 6, or Chalean Extreme for being a little over a hundred bucks, but they don’t understand that the average gym membership costs somewhere around $30-$50 per month! If I’m doing the math correctly (which I am of course), that’s $360-$600 per year, not including the gas to get there! Now think about this for a minute. I bought P90X in March of 2008 and haven’t been to the gym since, have saved hundreds of dollars, and have gotten into the best shape of my life, much better than what I was when I used to go to the gym. I think you know what choice to make!
(2) It’s in the comfort of your own home! I don’t have to leave my family each night to go to the gym anymore. In fact, my fiance works out with me, and my little girl watches us! I’m sure when she gets old enough she’ll want to jump in there with us!
(3) There are many people that realize they need to exercise, but are hesitant to go to the gym for the fear of being embarrassed. They hate the fact that they might be bench pressing next to a guy who puts up 250 lbs when they can only do 100. The great thing about a home workout system like P90X is that you can exercise in the privacy of your own home, and not have to fear embarrassment!
