About four years ago, I lead a very active lifestyle. I was involved in several sporting activities, which included mountain bike racing, biathlon competition, skydiving, scuba diving, foot racing, BMX racing, and regular weight training. For some reason that has yet to be determined, I slowly began dropping off my outdoor activities one by one. I'd like to blame it on turning 30 (I'm now 35), but honestly it's nobody's fault but mine. I just got lazy. Eventually I stopped exercising altogether. I attempted to redeem myself by trying to work out again. I tried starting off slow because I had fallen so far out of shape. I first started walking every day, and then started running. But that quickly faded due to boredom and lack of visual progress. Then I purchased a home gym, which motivated me somewhat for a short period of time until I got bored with that also. For about a year I was on and off, trying to motivate myself to regain my physical appearance and self-dignity. Everything failed (again, my own fault).
Finally, I saw Tony on TV during an infomercial and immediately felt a new sense of motivation, of purpose. I picked up the phone and ordered Power 90. When I received the videos I made a promise to myself that was I going to follow the program to a "tee", with no deviation from the videos and diet guide. The package I received was extremely professional and immediately made me feel comfortable enough to put my faith in this program.
As I worked out with Tony, I used him as a target source of motivation and followed everything he did on the video. I examined his every move and performed all the exercises exactly as he did, paying close attention to my form and transitions. I worked out every day and got lots of sleep, took the supplements, and followed the enclosed diet guide. After 28 days I was already shredded, so I switched to Phase 3/4 and within a week, not only could I keep up with each workout, but I could do many of the moves at a much faster pace. I was doing it! I was beating Tony! ! ! (And by the way, that really feels good. )
Now that I've completed the Power 90 course and became a Coach, I'm going to continue to PUSH PLAY, help motivate others, and anxiously wait until the new P90X comes out. Face it: I'm hopelessly addicted to Beachbody. (Is there some sort of support group for Beachbody addicts I can attend?) LOL. Also, because of the renewed energy I have, I feel like I'm 17 again, so I just took up long-board skateboarding and surfing. If anyone has any tips on these sports, please email me.
Thanks to all the members on this site for their support and motivation, and thank you to Beachbody. com and, of course, Tony for instructing an excellent program that will keep you motivated and change your life forever. I love you all.
P. S. Tony, stop cracking jokes during my workouts, you make me laugh and I lose my concentration! ! ! (Only kidding, your jokes make the exercises fun as heck! ! )
P. P. S. TONY, MY P90X DVD COVER HAD BETTER BE AUTOGRAPHED! ! ! ! I SENT AN EMAIL TO MR. JASON YOUNG AND HE PROMISED ME THAT YOU WOULD DO THIS FOR ME. THANKS.
