And there is nothing better than playing the DVDs at your home and follow Tony’s instructions on a wide-screen TV.
But, because of my frequent traveling I am not always able to watch the P90X DVDs everywhere I go. Even if I do carry them, I can not play them in every hotel I stay at. However, my phone is my constant companion and since P90X® has evolved I have my P90X workouts on my iPhone.
Beachbody has created an iPhone and Android P90X App that can help you never stop exercising even if you aren’t at home.
You can choose to watch the workout videos right on your smartphone, or you can use the App to help you schedule and track your P90X DVD progress.
Even if it is a period when I don’t workout, the app is here to remind me to start to do so. And because there is an option to add other exercises, like cycling, running, I use it to organize my runs during my marathon preparations. It keeps me motivated and organized with my workouts and nutrition.
P90X App Review
When you first start using the App, you can start your 90 day journey and the app will make it easy for you to take a profile photo, before photo, your measurements and you can even take the Fit Test to establish a starting point.
You can find this data in your P90X profile tab and follow your progress and achievements.
The App’s home page is a selection page. You can choose to “Start a Program” (if you want to use the app to track your entire P90X program), and if you have already started one you can select to “Work Out Now” (if you use the app now and then, when you don’t have your DVDs, my case).
When you start a program, or as you workout, you can track your progress on your Profile.
And, of course you can keep track of your Nutrition Calendar.
The Profile tab gives you charts of body measurements: weight, size (waist, hips, chest, arms, thighs) and BMI. This way you can keep track of your progress and see how efficient the workouts are.
After every workout you can see your daily statistics for each exercise and compare with previous workouts.
You can log in to your Beachbody account and the App will sync your progress with the one on your account. So, you will get your P90X progress cloud App.
And everything that you do you can Share on social media because not only do you have the usual Twitter and Facebook options, but P90X even includes support for Apple’s Game Center so you can share with the world and get a little peer-pressure working for you as well.
What is good for beginners are the popup warnings that come out if there is a possibility to get injured or fall of course. This can happen if you try to do two of a kind workouts in a day. Toni will warn you “to back off a bit”.
And about the interface: Many complain that there are shortcomings when the interface is in question. Yes, there may be, but the opportunity the App gives: bring my P90X wherever I go, surpasses them all.
What the P90X App includes
As the P90X program evolves and P90X2 and p90X3 come out, the App evolves, too including the three programs together.
So you can workout with P90X anywhere and keep track of your sets, reps, and weights, view your progress, and share your results. With interactive features like these, you’ll stay motivated and accountable to get more out of P90X, P90X2®, and P90X3 than ever.
Special P90X DVD Program Discount
If you have installed the App and you don’t have the P90X program, you can take advantage of an exclusive FREE SHIPPING offer on your purchase of the P90X DVD program when you buy it in the Beachbody Mobile Store, accessed through the App. Just go to the Beachbody Store from within the app. This offer is for a limited time, so act fast!
What is the next workout? With the app you get a calendar that automatically fills with the workout once you chose your program. There you can add additional activities and exercises outside P90X workouts, like running, hiking, swimming, and more.
With the app you can keep a record of your sets, reps, and weights even after you finish every workout. And your progress will be your motivator to help you successfully finish any program.
Earn and Share
Your every accomplishment and success you can share with your friends as the app allows you to show the world your progress by connecting it with Facebook®, Twitter®, and email.

From my perspective, this App is good for those who are doing the P90X program, but need the flexibility of doing the workouts not only at home, but anywhere they go. It is also a great companion that will remind you of what comes next, what you should eat and will make it easy to track your progress and keep up with your goals.
So, I suggest you give it a try, since you have nothing to lose even if you don’t buy the Guided Workouts.
However, you have the Ab Ripper and the fitness assessment for free and you can decide afterwards if you want to continue with the Guided workouts.
Other that that it can be your organizer for every other exercise you are planning on doing.
