The Next P90X
“The Next P90X.” It’s got a ring to it, doesn’t it? All I know is that I seriously can’t wait for this new program to come out, just in case none of you could figure that out yet. I’ve only been talking about it for the last, oh, 8 months now! At first we all thought the next P90X was going to be called P90X MC2, but we were wrong and instead, it’s going to be called (well I guess IS called) P90X2.
Before I get into the details about the next P90X, let’s take some time and talk about the program that started it all, P90X! For those of you who don’t know, I started P90X back in March of 2008 because I was COMPLETELY out of shape, unhappy with where I was in life emotionally, physically, and financially, and knew I needed a change. That change started with me getting back into shape, and by complete accident one night I came across the P90X infomercial. After literally sitting there, fascinated, staring at the screen like a deer caught in headlights, I went online, did my research, and decided to order it right then. About 90 days later I was in the absolute best shape of my entire life, and ended up dropping 25 lbs and 10% body fat! Was it hard? OH HECK YEAH! Seriously one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life! I remember laying on the floor after my first Chest & Back workout, thinking I was going to either pass out or puke all over the place, and then I hear the Ab Ripper X music come on and about crapped myself. Seriously? I have to do ANOTHER workout? As much as I DIDN’T want to do it, I did, and am glad I did. I kept that commitment and drive up during the ENTIRE 90 days and got rewarded for it!
Fast forward to January of 2011. I’m now an established full-time Beachbody Coach (won Top Beachbody Coach 2010 out of over 50,000 coaches), and was asked to be a part of the next P90X program that was coming out in December. Of course, without hesitation I accepted, and was flown out to L.A. to shoot the new P90X2 videos with Tony Horton! They had me prepare for the workout that I was in a few weeks ahead of time, but when I got there and actually did the workout with Tony, it was MUCH different. The pace was faster, we had to cut it quite a few times and do the moves over again, but when it was all said and done, the new P90X2 Shoulders & Arms video turned out AMAZING! I had NO IDEA that the moves in the new program were so advanced, and I was definitely feeling it afterwards! It was very tough, even for me, and I’m already in excellent shape! The video I’m in (like I said above) is P90X 2 Shoulders & Arms, and it involves doing 8 different exercises in a row 3 times through. When you get through the last exercise of each round, you get a 30 second or so break and just right into the next round. What’s so unique about this workout in particular was that not only does it focus on the shoulders and arms, but you are REALLY working the core as well! Pretty much every exercise involved some sort of balance move with it. For example, for the Arnold Presses we had to do them alternating on one leg. Talk about TOUGH! I really feel that you all will be VERY impressed with the new P90X 2 program.
After I was done filming the next P90X Shoulders and Arms video, I stayed after and watched about 3 other workouts being filmed. I thought my workout was tough until I saw these guys go through theirs! SERIOUSLY RIDICULOUS! Crazy intense, super fast paced, and very, very advanced moves that are NOT for beginners! In fact, I would even go as far to say that if you haven’t completed a round of P90X yet, then you shouldn’t even THINK about attempting the next P90X, P90X2! It’s that tough. I saw people who were in the best of shape struggle to keep up. P90X2 IS for people who are already in great shape and looking to take their fitness to the next level. It’s also for athletes who are looking to improve their athletic performance because the majority of the program is sports focused. In fact, I really wish I would have known about P90X and P90X2 especially back when I was playing college baseball! I have already talked to my former college coach about getting the entire team on P90X2, though. It’s going to help them run faster, get stronger, develop the core, and will no doubt improve their game!
The next P90X, P90X 2 is going to be one AMAZING program, and I seriously can’t wait for mine to arrive mid December! If you haven’t pre-ordered P90X2 yet, it’s actually going on right now, and you can order it through me (below) since I’m a full-time Beachbody Coach. By doing so, I will automatically be assigned as your coach and be here to help you through the entire program. If you pre-order P90X2, you will be able to receive it before Christmas! Also, if you do order, make sure you let me know because I’m going to be putting together P90X 2 Challenge Groups of 5 people when the program is released! This is a way for all of us to stay accountable and committed to the program. Oh and if you want to make me your coach now, just click here!
