We knew going to the gym wouldn’t work for us.
Sorry gym people. You are much more motivated than I am. Adding travel time to a gym won’t work. We bought a DVD instead.
Hands now: How many of you have seen the P90X commercial and visualized yourself looking like that? Have no fear, that’s not the DVD I ordered. Those folks are nuts¹!
The P90X program actually is well reviewed online, but nearly everyone also points to a pre-program test to make sure you’re up for that level of training. The test was unnecessary for me!
There is a wimpier brother to P90X called Power90. That too is well received and what I ordered.
I have never ordered anything online with so much upselling! Before finishing the deed I had to say no at least four times for add-on and additional features.
The world doesn’t want to be that much of an Adonis!
Helaine and I are doing the program together. We just finished Day 2. The instructor is good. The exercises reasonably easy to replicate.
I can feel it and it doesn’t seem beyond my potential capabilities. Both yesterday and today I stopped a few times. The program cautions you not to overdo it. In fact you’re encouraged to underdo it at first. That was an easy sell with me.
You are also supposed to take a “Before” picture before setting out. Right. Good luck on that.
I’ll let you know how it works. All I can say now is the journey has begun.
