How I Found P90X
Where I was –
Watch the Video at the end of this blog. It’s pretty funny….
Surprisingly, I have had a lot of people ask me about How I Found P90X. It’s a pretty neat story actually. I wasn’t really LOOKING for anything. You’ve heard people say that about dating right? Well, it was true for me. I knew I needed to get in shape, but I didn’t know what to do. I knew I was fat and not healthy at all. But, I also knew I wouldn’t go to a gym and I wouldn’t use a membership even if someone gave it to me. I just simply didn’t have time to get up that early and go to the gym, workout for an hour or two, carrying my work clothes to the gym, showering, and then go to work. I also knew I wouldn’t go to the gym after work and then come home because I simply wouldn’t feel like it. I didn’t have the equipment I needed at home and didn’t have the room for an at home gym. I had already decided that if I was going to get in shape, I was going to have to go running and try to eat right. I had lost weight in the past doing yo-yo diets, but I always gained back more than I lost. Diets Don’t Work! I know that now and funny enough, I knew it then. Instinctively I knew it. We all do. But, I didn’t know what to do. I had convinced myself I was OK. I was a baseball coach and had no real health problems and I was 42 years old. I guess I should say, I didn’t have any health problems, yet. But, I was a ticking time bomb. My knees and ankles were beginning to hurt from the excess weight I was carrying. Surely my internal organs were taking a toll as well. It may have been another decade or more before the problems manifested themselves, but I’m sure they would have. You can’t continue to mistreat your body like I was doing and not have it show up. My Father died of Pancreatic Cancer at 68 and I didn’t want that to happen to me. I’m sure all of the fried foods he ate every day as well as all the sweets and desserts is what did it, or at least contributed to it. I didn’t want that to happen to me but I didn’t know what to do. Six years later, that is when it happened, and this is How I Found P90X!!
How I Found P90X!!
As I said, I wasn’t really looking for anything. I knew I needed to do something but I was stuck. So, what to do? I was sitting in my living room watching infomercials one weekend and saw it. P90X came on. I watched the entire thing. So, what did I do? I did what most people do. I didn’t order it. But, I thought about it a lot and, truly, when it comes to working out, it is NOT the thought that counts. It is action. The next weekend, after doing a bit of research on it, the infomercial came on again and Melanie happened to be in the room this time. I told her, THIS is what I was talking about. She said, in a serious tone, “You won’t do it!” THAT is when I ordered it. She basically gave me a challenge without knowing it. I was assigned a coach and she was awesome for me. I got the pullup bar, the recovery drink, the meal replacement shakes, the vitamins, the protein bars, etc. I wanted it all. I knew I had to invest in it so I did. THAT is how I found P90X! I had no idea how much ordering that program and being committed to it would change my life. It has been nothing short of incredible!

Where I am now –
As I said, I’m ever so glad I found P90X. So, that is how I found P90X! Or, did it find me? I’m not really sure. But, after doing 2 Rounds of the 90 day program, P90X+ came out. That is when I got truly ripped. P90X will get you ripped in 90 days but I tell everyone, you have to be torn first. I wasn’t even folded!! But, P90X+ got me there. Since then, I’ve done all of the Beachbody Programs. There are too many of them to name but you can go to my site at www.teambeachbody.com/jayfloyd and see all of them. If you want to do this and do it seriously, my suggestion is getting the P90X Challenge Pack. I wish we had it when I got started but we didn’t even have Shakeology then. When you get the Challenge Pack, you get your choice of Shakeology Flavor, P90X, free shipping and you’ll get a new order of Shakeology every 30 days. You’ll also get to test drive the club membership for 30 days to see if you like it. Everything has a 30 day money back guarantee, no questions asked, so, what do you have to lose? If you think P90X is a bit too much, we also have P90, the program that is a little less intense than the X. We also have other workouts you can check out by going to my site and clicking SHOP. If you have any questions, Contact Me and let’s talk about it and find your soul mate workout. I’m loving Body Beast right now and you can do it. I can help you. Let’s get you in the best shape of your life, regardless of how old you are!! You may just decide you want to be a coach and help other like I did and then, your life will REALLY change.
