In brief: Exercise programs

The ideal program is dependent on the physical state of the individual.
Many folks in poor physical condition try vigorous workouts with weights or other strenuous activity to "hurry up" progress. But jumping, stretching, and body contortions in the less fit, like with p90--may may them so uncomfortable they quickly give up. Do a tailored program at the gym with a trainer--then go out on your own.

In brief: P90X is an

In-home total body fitness program on 12 dvds.
If followed correctly and supplemented with the suggested nutritional and recovery guidelines, it has been extremely effective for many people. That said, having a specific "minimum fitness level"as defined by the parent company, as well as a medical clearance, is strongly advised.
