You've always heard about how P90X has gotten people totally ripped and shredded right? This classic muscle confusion program helped me lose 30 lbs in 90 Days back in 2010, and I haven't looked back. But this post isn't about the health and fitness aspect of P90X, it's about the other fantastic ways it has benefited me.
Now right off the bat, let me tell you that I am a Full-Time Beachbody Coach, and I speak from experience, over 6 years to be exact, so I'm not here to try to sell you on anything. I'm here to simply share what this extreme little workout program by Tony Horton has done for me (in regards to non- health and fitness results) within the past 6 years.
P90X, the non-health and fitness part
1. I Became More Comfortable At The Gym (ok, this is about health and fitness, but not in regards to direct physical results)
Before P90X, I took a few Crossfit Group Classes, but I was always intimidated by the gym. Why? Because I didn't want to be "that guy" using the gym equipment the wrong way. I didn't want to be "that guy" walking around like a dumb ass trying to figure out which machine did what.
As I became better and better at P90X, I started to learn more about exercise in general, proper form etc. I also learned about modifications, and how to implement certain gym equipment to replace body weight exercises such as push ups. I now love going to the gym and doing my P90X workouts using actual gym equipment. For those of you who think that P90X is just an in-home workout, try doing it at the gym, you'll get your ass kicked. The cool thing is that you can do it anywhere, no gym required.
I've also learned that it's not all about the exercises that are used in the P90X program, it is more about how it is structured. If followed correctly according to your fitness level, you can achieve some massive results. Its by far my GO TO functional fitness workout for everything that I do.
2. I Learned How To Coach People To Achieve The Same Success That I Achieved
As I mentioned above, the better I became at doing P90X, the more experienced I became. It was easier for me to share my fitness tips and advice with people to help them reach their goals. My P90X success allowed me to open up a Fit Club in downtown Tampa and help over 2,000 local people get off the couch and into a healthier lifestyle, and I'm pretty proud of that =)
Being a P90X graduate of all the P90X workouts such as P90X, P90X2, and P90X3, it has given me more knowledge about how to stay safe while working out, and how to pace yourself to get the best results. P90X isn't just a fitness program, it's truly a lifestyle.
3. I Became An Entrepreneur
Well, this just kinda happened. I never knew about the business side of P90X and the mastermind company behind it (my affiliate), but as people began asking me for P90X tips and advice, I organically started coaching them (motivating, keeping them accountable, and giving advice) online with challenge groups on facebook, and something magical started happening.....the pay checks just started to come in. No, they weren't big paychecks in the beginning, but it was a little raise that I couldn't get from my current jobs at the time, and that excited me! Extra income mean't paying my bills on time, and having extra money to spend on vacations.
I never thought that my health and fitness journey would ever pay me, let alone be my full time income. It all started with a passion to become better and healthier for my daughter, and now it's become as big as helping thousands of people all over the world.

If you help enough people become healthy and fit, and you are passionate about truly helping them succeed, this hobby can become pretty lucrative.
4. I Can Now Travel The World Freely
This part I really love because if there is one thing thing that comes after God and my family, it's world travel. Being an online P90X Coach allows me to work from anywhere around the world as long as I have an internet connection. Gone are the days where I used to work in a nightclub, or park cars at a hotel, or work graveyards at a casino. I am now completely mobile, and can work my online coaching business from a smartphone or laptop.
My goal is to visit all 196 countries, and if I do, it will be because of P90X, it's crazy right, but it's true!
5. I Can Help People Become P90X Certified
Last but not least, P90X has not only helped me become a Beachbody Coach to assist people with their health and fitness goals, but I can also help fitness professionals become certified with P90X. Not every fitness professional is open to the Beachbody Coach Opportunity, but what fitness professional wouldn't want to have the most popular fitness program under their belt to teach to their clients. P90X sells itself, it really does! By becoming P90X certified, it will allow you to get clients almost immediately (results will vary) because the company Beachbody spends over $140 million dollars per year on advertising, so all you have to do is tell people that you are P90X Certified. Simple as that!
And BAM, there you have it!
