P90X University - The History of P90X

P90X

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

P90X, or Power 90 Extreme, is a commercial home exercise regimen, known for its intensity.[1] It is designed to take 90 days, and consists of a training program which uses cross-training (weight training, martial arts, yoga and calisthenics) and periodization, combined with a nutrition and dietary supplement plan.[2]

P90X History

The system was developed by Tony Horton, Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler, Beachbody Fitness Advisor Steve Edwards, nutritionist Carrie Wyatt, Creative Director Ned Farr, and workout video director Mason Bendewald.
 
In 2002, Daikeler tasked Horton to create a fitness program for people who were already fit. Daikeler hired Ned Farr to document the process of developing the new program, giving a "look behind the curtain." Development took two years. Horton consulted various fitness experts and experimented with several disciplines before selecting 12 workouts. The program was tested and refined with several 90-day test groups. Farr's video diary documentary originally appeared every month on Beachbody's website and can now be found on YouTube.

In 2004, the completed program was released, and an infomercial was made using some of the documentary footage.

Farr continues to use a documentary approach to the infomercials, using raw home footage supplied by P90X graduates. "P90X: The Proof" infomercial won a Telly award in 2009 and "P90X: The Answer" infomercial won a Moxie award in 2010.

P90X is Beachbody's best-selling product after years of positive word of mouth and heavy infomercial advertisements.[3] Despite sales growth slowing to approximately 30%, P90X represented half of Beachbody's $430 million revenue in 2010. [4] As of November 2010, 3 million copies of P90X have been sold for an estimated $420 million.[4] The program had grossed approximately $500 million in sales, as of August 2012.[2]

Brands

P90X uses the term "muscle confusion" in their advertising to refer to their training methods.[5] Muscle confusion is said to prevent the body from adapting to exercises over time, resulting in continual improvement without plateau.[6]

There are six programs associated with the Power 90 name: Power 90, Power 90 Master Series, P90X, P90X+, P90X One-on-One, and P90X2 [7] (released in 2011).

Program overview

P90X is a 90-day program that combines a variety of exercise techniques including strength training, cardio, yoga, plyometrics, and stretching.[8] The program consists of a nutrition guide, fitness plan, calendar and series of DVD videos demonstrating a variety of techniques. The models also demonstrate some moves at lower and/or higher levels of intensity.[9] P90X provides a fitness test to determine if the program is suitable for an individual.[10]

Nutrition

The nutrition plan is composed of three phases. The first 30 days emphasize higher protein and lower carbohydrates. The second phase increases the percentages of carbohydrates. The third phase further increases the carbohydrates.

Hey Everybody

I can't believe how quickly July (and this year) are flying by! For those of you who don't know, I am still making my way through Focus T25 (and loving it!). I started the Beta Phase earlier this week. I plan on doing 4 weeks of the Beta phase before jumping into my World's Toughest Mudder training on Monday August 19th. I am still having some discomfort in my right elbow...

I am also taking some time to finish my basement. I am about 95% done the framing (hoping to be done by this weekend). The goal with my basement is to turn most of it into an awesome home gym! Keep an eye out for updates on my social media outlets over the next several weeks as that takes shape.

Here are the topics of discussion for this week:

1. There is just a week left to take advantage of the free shipping offer for Focus T25 as well as save over $90 on the Focus T25 Challenge Pack! The general reaction around this program is that it is exceeding people's expectations (myself included). If you don't believe me, go check out my YouTube Channel to see my reactions to the workouts.

2. My Shakeology 10-Packs have been a HUGE success so far. I have already had a number of you requesting these. Because of this, I am completely out of my vanilla samples and only have 3 chocolate samples left. (I still have Greenberry as well) Not to worry, I have more Chocolate and Vanilla sample packs arriving later this week/early next week. These 10-packs are great for those of you who wish to try out a couple different flavours, not to mention witnessing the effects of this amazing product over a 10 day span. Please remember, if you wish to purchase, make sure you fill out this form and pay $50USD through the PayPal link provided on that same page. I promise you I am not profiting from this, in fact I lose a bit on each sale, but I wish to provide this opportunity to all of you in hopes that you will appreciate the product as much as I do!

3. Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler Tweeted this the other day:

@CarlDaikeler: Can't tell you why yet but if you can clear your calendar for the day or a couple hours on Mon Aug 5th, it's gonna be exciting and worth it!

I will be following this and will of course keep you all updated with any news that I hear of. It sounds interesting, and I am a sucker for teasers like this! :P

4. You will notice on of my blogs (link below) is about Dan's health and fitness journey. I am always on the look out for success stories, so if you would like to be featured on my blog, make sure you e-mail me and we can discuss having you featured!

This week's blogs:

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my blogs and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, Twitter, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow our team!

2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site, tylerrobbinsfitness.com. It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions, writing my blogs, filming my videos, and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it!

Everyone have a great week!

Hey Everybody

Welcome to July! Wow, the year is already half over, time is flying by. I know I sound like a broken record, but most people don't realize that time keeps on passing you by whether you choose to improve yourself or not! Don't have enough time to exercise? Well, Beachbody has you covered now...

This week's topics:

1. Wow, the buzz surrounding Focus T25 is just unbelievable! The interest shown by not only many on my team, but also customers and Coaches throughout Beachbody Nation is incredible! My wife and I have been working our way through the program as well, and now that I am a week and a half in, I can honestly say that I believe Beachbody has created such a perfectly versatile program here!

For those of you who are already fit from Insanity or Asylum, this can be used as a great "maintenance" routine. For those with other goals (including myself) it works well as an add-on. I have been doing more of a traditional strength program on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, with Focus T25 right alongside of it.

For those interested, you can find the Focus T25 Base kit and add-on Gamma Phase here.

Remember that the program is also paired with Shakeology, giving the perfect combination of exercise and nutrition in a Challenge Pack. From now until the end of July, the Challenge Pack is also on sale for $180 (over $70 savings).

2. For those interested in Shakeology, I have a few vanilla samples left if you wish to try, I will send you a sample for free. I also have a delivery of chocolate samples showing up later this week. I have sent out vanilla samples to many of you, for those of you waiting on a chocolate sample, I will let you know when I am sending them out. If you wish to try Shakeology, e-mail me back with your mailing address and flavour of choice. Keep in mind that I now also offer Shakeology 10-Packs which offer an opportunity to try a couple flavours, and get a better feel for the shakes before ordering an entire month's supply.

3. For those interested, I have created a photo album on my Facebook page showing all of the great people I have met through my short time as a Beachbody Coach!

4. Finally, I want to leave you with a message Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler posted on his Facebook on Tuesday:

Why don't Team Beachbody Coaches need to have any fear about inviting people to buy from or join or network?
2 reasons: 

(1) The products work. They live up to, and usually surpass the expectations for body transformation that customers have. No reason to fear rejection when you are representing to total package that really gets results. 

(2) Our mission is to "help people achieve their goals and enjoy healthy fulfilling lives". While greed drives many MLM's, our drive is to help people. When you are not trying to "close a sale" but instead are trying to truly help someone improve their life, you have nothing to fear. And guess what? That's good business.

Sure, some people you talk to may not be ready to participate. That's okay. But as a coach, you should never feel anything but total pride in your efforts to help more people. Every day - HELP MORE PEOPLE!

And from the looks of results in the last week, you are definitely feeling the crazy momentum that happens when your intent lines up with that message! Keep it going!
