Does P90X3 really work?
Tony Horton is the trainer and creator of the P90X3 workout.
Tony has had huge success with workouts like 10 Minute Trainer, Power 90, P90X, P90X2, and a few other workouts that he has made with Beachbody.
Needless to say,Tony Horton knows what he is doing when it comes to getting people amazing workout results.
Of all the workouts, 10 Minute Trainer was the shortest workout program Tony has ever created. Although ever workout was only 10 minutes, it was highly recommended that you do 3 workouts a day to get the best results… making it 30 minutes.
Since then, recent research is starting to show that short and intense workouts can be just as good and better than 1 hour workouts.
The first Beachbody workout to focus on short and intense workouts was Focus T25, created by Shaun T. Where ever workout is only 25 minutes.
Now, Tony Horton takes all the knowledge of the past and current research to bring you a complete 30 minute workout, P90X3.

Does P90X3 Really Work? Let’s Check Out the Test Group Results
There’s no better way to answer does P90X3 really work than by looking at the type of results people have gotten by doing P90X3.
In the video below, Tony Horton talks about the P90X3 workout results and why he thinks they got such amazing results.
Here are a few of the P90X3 workout participants and their results:
I think the results were amazing with P90X3. Think about it… 39 out of 40 people had at least 10% fat loss!!!
Not even Focus T25 can make that claim. And I honestly believe it’s because Tony Horton is all about creating a well rounded workout that works on every part of your body.
Shaun T’s Focus T25 is a great cardio workout that will help you lose weight, but it sticks more to cardio than strengthening your muscles with added resistance from additional equipment.
As a side note, Tony mentions in another video that not even P90X nor P90X2 got such amazing results as P90X3 did with their Test Group 😉
Who Is P90X3 For?- Does P90X3 Really Work?
Do Not get confused with the 3 at the end of P90X3!
What we should be asking is does P90X3 really work for everyone? Why is that?… Because not everyone can do P90X3…
Yes, P90X3 offers a modifier but it can be difficult to follow the modifier because
- The moves go fast and the modifier isn’t always shown.
- Tony doesn’t have enough time to explain the modified move.
- The modifier doesn’t always stick to only doing modified moves. Sometimes the modifier will do a advance move or the regular move without demonstrating the modified move.
It’s therefore recommend it to at least pass the P90X Fit Test before attempting P90X3.
While other P90X3 reviews will tell you that anyone can do P90X3, that is not the case.
Yes, you can attempt P90X3 and over time you will get better at it but I wouldn’t want you to get discouraged at not being able to do several moves back to back.
The original P90X does a much better job at showing and describing how to modify ever move.

- For the advanced workout pro looking to maintain their body or looking for a quick workout.
