There are so many women that I talk to about getting fit, but they are all scared of P90X because they think they will get too bulky. I cant tell you how sick I am of hearing that, lol…Ladies: you want muscle! Muscle does not mean you will be walking around like a feminine version of the hulk…it just means that you are going to be lean and fit. That what you want right???
Check out Leslies work to see how “bulky” she got! After 90 days of P90X, she lost 11lbs and looks amazing! She looks lean and fit! Then she did another 90 days and lost another 5lbs and looks even more amazing!!! Phenomenal job Leslie!
I am not a professional body builder or a personal trainer. I don’t claim to know everything about fitness but I do know there is always room for improvement. I am a woman who loves to work out and has a true passion for helping others reach their fitness goals. However, this was not the case a few years ago. I was lazy, out of shape and overweight. I was heading down a path of destruction and didn’t even realize it! I was in denial, like so many Americans are. When I looked in the mirror, I didn’t see what I’d let myself become, I saw what I wanted to see. I saw an “average woman” who needed a little make up and a new wardrobe. Only when I saw pictures of myself was I reminded of my true image. Even then, I wasn’t motivated enough to do anything about it. It wasn’t until I saw the P90X Infomercial that made me realize who and what I could be in just 90 days! I have to admit, I was skeptical at first! Infomercials in my experience have proven to be nothing but lies in the past. So naturally my husband and I did a lot of research before making the decision to commit to this new life style. It was hard to believe I could actually be “fit and tone”in 90 days, but I came to the conclusion that if the people on TV and on You Tube videos could do it, so could I! My husband and I decided we would be very strict and give no excuses leading to failure! I followed the diet 100% and pushed myself everyday through ever workout, never missing even one! P90X became my life for 90 days! It was tough and at times I wanted to give up! The workouts pushed me beyond my limits and the diet challenged every taste bud in my mouth but I never gave in to my weaknesses! After a few weeks, I began to see my body transform right before my eyes! Instead of dreading workouts I began to look forward to them, I enjoyed living the healthy lifestyle, I began to CRAVE THE BURN!
My starting weight was 126, in just 90 days I lost 11 lbs and gained a whole lot of muscle! I did a second round and lost another 5 lbs and got more definition. I have since done another round of P90X, a round of INSANITY and a combination of the 2. Laziness and weakness became a thing of the past and the thought of me being “the average American woman” disintegrated! I now believe myself to be beautiful, fit, tone, healthy, strong, determined, disciplined, dedicated, motivated, committed, graceful, passionate, driven and thankful. P90x not only transformed my body, it changed my mindset and my life! P90X helped bring out my true colors and I am thankful for that!
