P90X Fitness

I was curious if anyone is familiar with the P90X fitness program and what their opinion is of it.

I've only looked it up when it's come up in discussions on other fora. Essentially, the opinion seemed to be that it works, but it's not cheap, and there are alternatives like Crossfit (also high-intensity, varied workouts) that are free. It's $120 (er, three easy payments of $39.95). Crossfit is free. Workouts on this site, these forums, and other sites are also free, so I'm not sure what you'd get from P90x that you wouldn't get from following another program just as rigorously.

But I have seen postings from people who did it and liked their results, so it's probably a good program, just not a cheap one.

One day at the gym, there was a fellow that brought the DVD with him so I did my warm up with him. From the few minutes that I saw, The DVD was basically similar to most that you see advertised on TV, with a group of people doing calisthenics. I know the series evolves into weights and is much more challenging than most DVDs. There is a guy on T-Nation that has used it a lot. He goes by the name "Streamline" and he hangs out in the "Over 35" forum. He would be a good one to ask. Here's a link to his thread: http://www.t-nation.com/tmagnum/readTopic.do?id=1904851
