great, but you get what you put into it Apr 17, 2008
By Joseph J. Roby
bought this after seeing the P90X program on TV and researching it was recommened that beginners or folks out of shape should do the power 90 program first.
I took the advice and got the Power 90 program.
Tony is a great trainer and the first few times you are really tired, but you get used to the program after a couple weeks and that is when you can really push it. If you don't push yourself then you will not see results as fast.
I have just completed 45 days and I went from being 6'1" and 235 (obese) to a built (gained a lot of upper body muscle) 215 and went from a large 38 pant size (really should have been 40) to a 35. I am pumped and working out is fun again! I am now moving on to the series 3-4 of the workout and when I finish the 90 days I am ordering P90X to get in even better shape!
The band that comes with the kit si good for starting out, but I went and got the next step up band (heavy) to increase the resistance for some of the work outs. Eventually I will get the adjustable dumb bells to speed up things and allow quick change in weight depending on the workout, but that is later.
If you are out of shape and over weight you gotta try this out!

Power 90 - 10 Weeks In - 2 Weeks To Go Mar 27, 2010
By CO Camper
After losing over 100 pounds about 10 years ago, I suddenly found myself steadily gaining weight after some major life changes. Over the last 5 years I regained all 100 pounds plus an additional 20. I topped out at 260 (I'm 5'7") with a 48" waist in January 2010. I ordered this program in November 2009 with the mindset that I would be one of those people I've always despised - those New Year's Resolution"ers". After a 2009 most people would rather forget, I swore to myself that 2010 must be a great year. And so far it has been.
Like so many people, I stay up late and a few months ago found myself watching Tony's infomercials for P90X. While I was highly intrigued, the workouts looked much too tough for someone who was used to eating 5,000 empty calories a day and would rather sleep than do something productive. I knew I couldn't begin there. The next morning, I logged onto Beachbody's website and began looking around at all of the "Best Sellers" and researched the workout programs offered. When I came across Power 90, I immediately ordered it. The package comes with a two-DVD set (Level 1-2 and Level 3-4), a resistance band, measuring tape, eating guide and workout manual with progress calendar. I must mention that I do not at all follow the eating guide as it is not something that works for me (in this "lose the weight in 90 days" business, you're always going to get some unrealistic propaganda). I did completely overhaul my eating plan on my own and am making it work for me. If you can follow the eating plan that's provided, more power to you.
The program was produced about 9 years ago and, for some, could be considered antiquated. However, if you're like me, this program is one of the most motivational ways to get yourself started back on that path to a healthier lifestyle. Tony's on-screen persona is instantly magnetic and his quirky personality keeps you tuned in.
Level 1-2 eases you into a number of moves you likely haven't done in years. None of the exercises are impossible to do on their own, but as they progress one after the other, you begin to sweat and really feel as though you're accomplishing that goal you've finally set for yourself. It's comforting to finally be sweating for a purpose - not just because you're tying your shoelaces. Each day alternates a different workout - day 1 is cardio, day 2 is circuit (weights), day 3 is cardio, etc. - with the goal of doing 6 days on, 1 day off. Some other reviewers have noted that this becomes redundant and I can't completely disagree, but for those of us who struggle from the gate find the repetition beneficial for mastering proper form and technique. As Tony states throughout the program, GO AT YOUR OWN PACE! The point of the workouts is not to keep up with him or his cohorts, it's to work on maintaining proper workout technique and slowly building your tolerance level. I really struggled the first few workouts, but within a week, I was amazed at the kind of progress I was making. You will, too.
I stuck with Level 1-2 for 35 days (technically the idea is to stick with it for 45 days - or half-way through the program). By this time, I was able to complete both the cardio and circuit portions of the program. I decided it was time to switch to Level 3-4 a bit early - some people may take longer. This second DVD actually contains the same workouts (with a few new exercises thrown in), but the workouts are about 10 minutes longer each and you now begin doing more sets and at a faster pace. It's a lot tougher, but still manageable. I still struggle a bit on the jumping jacks/running in place/run lunges portion a bit, but I am not planning on giving up! It's a high energy workout that's perfect for me at my current stage. Again in Level 3-4, Tony consistently reiterates to take a break and hit "Pause" if you need to, resume when you're ready. It's never about keeping up, it's about doing what's comfortable for you and making the transitions when they make them.
With only two weeks to go before it's "technically" over, I almost feel like I'm losing a best friend. I do not plan to stop this program on April 11 (90 days), but I can't WAIT to see how far I've come by then. As of the date of this posting (9 weeks and 5 days in), I have lost a total of 51 pounds (down to 209), 11" off my waist and 13" elsewhere and I have found that energy that escaped me 5 years ago. This program is the real deal for those who don't think they can yet handle P90X (like me) and need to ease back into the lifestyle. With what Tony's given me, I can move forward with confidence and stamina.
I will be ordering P90X in the months to come, but I think I am going to stick with Power 90 for a while because there are small bursts of Level 3-4 I still can't quite complete without pausing and I want to master it all before moving on. Over time, I plan to compile a library of many of Beachbody's programs, as I find them engaging and real. I never thought I'd ever get as far as I have with this - I've never been one for in-home DVD-based workouts, but Tony has made a believer out of me. I never looked at this as a "workout for 90 days and quit" program. The benefit to owning this is that I can always pop the DVD in and get a workout regardless of which level I choose. If I'm having an off day, I can do Level 1-2 of Power 90; if I'm having a great day, I can throw in a P90X routine. This is really something that can be done as a regular, weekly routine to maintain that body you've transformed! And the best part is, buying this covers a two-month gym membership and you own it forever.
If you're reading this and you find that you're in the same situation I was, I urge you to just do it. Without a doubt, I would be several pounds heavier by now if I hadn't hit "Play".

Great Start if You're Not Ready for P90X Apr 01, 2010
The Power 90 In-Home Boot Camp is a consice, well-conceived, well-organized and nicely presented kit. Tony Horton is clearly very knowledgeable in the field of fitness & exercise, and he takes a no-nonsense, practicle approach to helping you get back on track.
After researching P90X, which appears to have supplanted the Power 90, I knew I wasn't ready for such a challenging (extreme) program so I decided to start with the Power 90. Like all of Tony Horton's programs and, as many other users/reviewers have stated, you get out of the program what you put into it. If you don't commit to excercising and discipline yourself to do the routines as recommended (6 days per week), you're not going to see results. If you proceed as instructed, you will definitely see changes, as promised, and fairly quickly, too.
The DVDs are divided into timed "phases" (segments) which is surprisingly helpful in keeping you going, as no one section is so long that is seems unobtainable. The first Boot Camp DVD contains Phase 1-2: Sculpt 1-2 (circuit training); Sweat 1-2 (cardio); AB Ripper 100. The second DVD contains Phase 3-4: Sculpt 3-4; Sweat 3-4; AB Ripper 200. (There's also a "bonus" DVD 'Fat Burning Express' which is a great way to get ready for the Boot Camp DVDs.) The pace is brisk, but not in the super-high heart rate category, and the time passes much more quickly than you'd expect. If you're out of shape and out of practise, like me, you'll find it challenging (but not frustratingly, irritatingly so) which will keep you concentrating and absorbed, also making the time seem to pass faster.
You MUST have dumbbells and/or resistance bands to do these workouts. I don't see any way to modify the routines to proceed without them, and you absolutely will not get the same benefits and results without dumbbells or bands. I really like Reebok's Speed Pac Adjustable Dumbbells; they're very good quality, well-designed, compact and easily stored.
The catch phrase for the program is "Power to shower in under an hour", meaning you should be able to set yourself up, complete the day's circuits, pack up and hit the shower in under one hour. If you're out of shape with poor stamina (like me), and you have to pause the DVDs frequently, it may take a little longer than an hour from start to finish. However, once you begin to improve and build up some speed and stamina, it's absolutely doable within the hour, which is pretty impressive considering you're really getting tremendous benefits (strength, flexibility, stamina, cardio, fat burning) from a very small investment of time.
I purchased the kit through Amazon and received free shipping although I did have to pay sales tax; I don't know whether that was due to my location or the way BeachBody structures their business. The box arrived promptly, in perfect order, with the contents exactly as pictured and described in the Amazon listing. When you consider the price of Gym memberships and dues, the Power 90 cost of approximately $75 is a bargain. The exercise band (included) is a value-added item, and the printed materials are comprehensive yet concise, and easy to follow. The kit puts you in total control, in your own home, any time that's convenient for you. If you're looking for a good, sensible starter program, I definitely recommend Power 90.

This is what you really get! May 28, 2009
I'm about 3 weeks into the program. It is a great starter program if you are a couch potato and need to get off the sofa. But it is not as comprehensive as I expected. Here is what you really get...
2 DVD, an exercise band, and suggested menu and training calander. I broke the exercise band on the first workout. The handle snapped and it really hurt. I'm 6"3, so it was probably due to the distance the band had to stretch, but I've been using hand weights and I think they work better. The offer better range of resistance. The bands get harder as the stretch, so the first few inches are easy.
You use the first DVD for the first half of the program, and the second DVD for the second half. What I was disappointed with is that each half is only two workouts. So after the first week, it a little monotonous alternating between only two workouts. I probably should have gotten P90x, but didn't because of my sedintary lifestyle. But alternating between 2 workouts for 45 days is a little tendious. Both workouts are about 30 minutes, but that includes stretching, breaks, and cool down periods. While a 20 minute workout may be just right if you are a couch potato, I fell that I get a better cardio workout by spending 30 minutes on an eliptical machine. I do break a sweat doing the Power 90 Cardio I, but since its only 20 minutes, I'm not as drenched as on an eplitical. The Abs program is three minutes worth of ab exercises following the Cardio DVD, and the power yoga is also part of cardio. The program makes it seem like they are additional workouts, but that are not really. P90x looks like it has more workouts and I think more variety is helpful to stay committed to the program. I'm already bored with these two workouts.
Tony is good and not nearly as cheesy as some trainers I've seen. I just wish the program was more comprehensive. Hopefully moving to stage 2 will be envigorating. I can't comment on the second half of the program yet. For the most part, I do feel and look a little better, but I doubt I'm going to get the kind of results seen on the website and marketing materials only doing 20 minutes a day of moderate exercise.
If you're obses however, this is a nice start.
Finally, I'd buy this direct from [...]. I paid $[...] with shipping, so I'm not sure why its a lot more on Amazon. A third party reseller is probably jacking up the price. Plus by purchasing through [...], I now get weekly marking emails. While they do push supplements, they also include interesting articles about weightloss and health (such as the 411 on artificial sweeteners, which alcohols to avoid, making better eat-out choices, specifically what to order at national chain restaurants if you have to eat out, etc).
Hope this helps someone.

No nonsense program Apr 21, 2008
By N. Thorne
"Huge Media Monster"
I had bought this because I wanted to do the P90x system but thought that I wasn't in good enough shape to start it. This system consists of 3 circuits each about 30 min in length. It's challenging to go through any of the three circuits without a break or doing an alternative, easier version of the exercises, but I think that anyone could jump in and start. I've been in it three weeks and have lost three inches in the waist and also dropped about 7 pounds. What's better is to see my progress within the exercises: I'm doing more pushups, situps, etc.
