In brief: Depending on your
Fitness level and any associated physical limitations, you can participate in P90X.
Remember, it can be modulated for various fitness levels. But I'd stress that an older exerciser really needs to understand his/her limits, as there is literature to suggest that seniors are at higher risk of injury with these high intensity interval programs than younger persons.

Different seniors are at different levels of overall fitness.

I am 51 and did it and still am. I love it, but it may be slow for you at first and it will be hard. If your MD oks it I can help. Do you have a Beachbody coach? If not I would be glad to help you out and be your coach. Mark dentist2@yahoo.com
