My P90X Transformation Story: Back towards the end of February of 2008 I came to a point in my life where I knew I needed a change. I was unhappy with the way I looked, felt, my confidence took a plunge, and my relationships and career were all suffering because of it. I knew that I needed to get healthy and stay healthy, so I started looking for something that could help me achieve my fitness goals. Late one night, bowl of ice cream with chocolate hard shell in hand, I was watching TV and came across the P90X infomercial. I don’t know what it was, maybe the intensity of the workouts, but somehow I knew this program was for me, and without hesitation, I jumped online, checked out some more P90X transformation photos, and made the purchase!

I remember waiting anxiously for the package to arrive, and about 5 days later it did, along with the P90X Pull-Up bar! I opened the package, and the first thing that I did was go over the Nutrition Guide. I knew that if I was going to make a serious change in my life, I needed to commit myself 100% to the entire program, which included the diet. After thoroughly going through and understanding it, I assembled the pull-up bar, and then popped in the first P90X workout, Chest & Back. I will never forget that workout, mostly because I made it about half way through before I got nauseated to the point of almost throwing up, but even though I felt that way, I pushed myself as hard as possible to complete it. It wasn’t pretty, but I managed to get through the entire workout! Proud of myself, but yet completely and utterly exhausted, I laid sprawled out on the floor, and then out of nowhere I hear this music. I look back up to the TV, and there Tony Horton was, telling me that I wasn’t finished and had to complete Ab Ripper X. Really? I sucked it up, pushed myself, and completed the workout without complaining.

For the next few weeks I could barely move! I went through all the normal workouts for the first Phase, including P90X Legs & Back, Core Synergistics, and Shoulders & Arms, and was so sore that I could barely walk, stand up, sit down, or do anything at all for that matter without some sort of pain! However, even though it hurt like heck, I enjoyed it, only because I knew I was making a serious change to my body. On top of that, I was already seeing results, and had lost almost 10 lbs in just 2 weeks! Super impressed and motivated, I stuck with the program for the entire 90 days, not drinking any alcohol, not cheating on the diet, and literally got into the best shape of my life! I had lost 25 lbs, 10% body fat, and had went from a size 33 (pushing 34) waist all the way down to a 30! I had accomplished what I wanted to accomplish, but didn’t stop there. This was now a lifestyle change, and I wanted to make sure I looked and felt this way for as long as I lived! Since my first round of P90X, I have gone through P90X Plus, Insanity, One on One, Turbofire, Brazil Butt Lift, and now Insanity Asylum!

    What weights did you use when you started and so on??

  2. Josh /

    @Ricardo. When I started I was using a range from about 10 lbs to 55 lbs.

  3. Jorge /

    Hey josh, in your first 90 days you gained mass (alot!)
    i kind of want to do the same thing, but im currently at 14% bodyfat .
    should i bulk now? will all that extra muscle mass help my body fat percentage to go down?

  4. @Jorge. What you need to do is focus on losing the body fat first and then on gaining mass. Gaining some muscle will help you lose more fat, but it’s tricky because it involves 2 separate diets.

    Also, have you made me your coach yet? If not, make sure you do so that I can be here to help you through the program. Here’s the link:
