>> announcer: the following is a paid presentation for p90x3 brought to you by beachbody. [ bell tolls ] [ clock ticking ] [ dramatic music plays ] >> announcer: do you wonder what it would be like to be in amazing shape? [ pulsing ] do you look in the mirror and wish you had a six-pack? don't you want a body that can perform like this and look like this at least once in your life? [ air rushing ] well, now, you can get that body... faster than ever before. you don't need a gym membership or fancy equipment, and you don't need a lot of time. you start by doing what these people did -- you set a fitness goal with a deadline -- 90 days
to get in the best shape of your life. and that deadline comes with this plan -- the all-new and shockingly effective 30 minute workouts of p90x3. this is accelerated fitness. >> [ breathes sharply ] >> quicker! >> [ grunts ] >> faster! [ dramatic music plays ] >> the days of working out for hours on end are over. >> it's just crazy -- what you can do in 30 minutes a day. >> don't tell me 30 minutes doesn't get done. what matters is the sequence. what matters is the pace. pick up the speed! what matters is the intensity. come on! one, two, three, four! that's what matters. >> look at me -- a mother of five. i never had any time, but i did have a half an hour. >> you are doing in 30 minutes what -- at the gym, it would take you an hour hour and a half to do. >> a p90x3 workout is only 30 minutes. [ beeps ] but that doesn't mean an x3 workout is half a workout.
it's a whole workout in half the time. big difference. we're talking concentrated intensity here, folks. you don't get off easy. you just finish faster. [ beeps ] that's p90x3. [ beeps ] [ air rushing ] [ pulsing ] [ slow music plays ] >> announcer: it may seem crazy to you that 30 minute workouts can create extreme changes like these over the course of 90 days. but the latest scientific findings prove that the majority of benefits from a workout occur within the first 30 minutes. and after that, your body actually becomes less and less responsive to exercise. so, to reach your fitness goal in 90 days, you don't need to work out for an hour or more. you can take your results through the roof by following a proven plan, designed to get the most out of those first 30 minutes. p90x3 is that proven plan. the plan goes like this -- you work out at home, not the gym, because gym owners hate deadlines. think about what it would look like if everyone got ripped in
90 days. [ crickets chirping ] you only work out for 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week, for 90 days. but you spend those 30 minutes giving it everything you've got -- building muscle, burning fat, challenging yourself to try new things, pushing past your boundaries, and hammering your core, because, this time, you're going to get that six-pack. and you're going to get it faster, because p90x3 pushes your body to change faster. here's how. people who join a gym often see physical changes in their first three weeks, but those changes gradually stop coming, no matter how hard they push through their routine. gym rats call this the plateau effect. p90x3 busts through those plateaus by using a system called "muscle acceleration," which changes routines every few weeks, before your body can adapt, using a potent blend of muscle building techniques cardio routines, core stability training, martial arts, and more that keeps your body guessing
for the full 90 days, so that not only does your hard work turn into hard muscle every workout is only 30 minutes. >> you think, "30 minutes? can i do what i really want to do?" and to be honest with you, the -- the results blew my mind. it really comes down to their muscle acceleration program. your body's never given a chance to adapt to the program because it's changing it up all the time. throughout the whole 90 days you know, you're never gonna hit those plateaus. i've worked out at gyms, and i got into decent shape. but, again, with -- with x3, 30 minutes -- you know, i went from an average guy to body-builder-style ripped. i was 179 pounds, and i got down to 164 pounds. it's just crazy -- what you can do in 30 minutes a day. i mean, it's just like -- you know, you -- you got to bring it, but it's awesome. you guys want to see the reason why i get results like this, why i get this sweaty? you want to know the real secret?
tony's watching me. >> announcer: this is tony horton, one of the nation's most passionate advocates for health and wellness. >> four... >> announcer: his unique approach to body transformation has revolutionized home fitness, making him one of the most successful and sought-after trainers in the world. >> people can do 30 minutes. we took the breaks out. i don't talk as much. whoo! [ laughs ] but we understand that there's all these folks out there who are trying to be better, who are trying to be fitter, who are trying to be happier, who are trying to lose the weight, and they just haven't found a method yet. p90x3 is gonna get them there. >> announcer: getting there doesn't mean getting in the car -- it means working out in the most convenient gym in the neighborhood -- your living room. >> people ask me how often i'm going to the gym. and i can just tell them "30 minutes in my living room -- p90x3." i never thought that 30 minutes a day would get me to where i am now. >> we've learned, in the last 10 years, you can make it happen in 30 minutes, and that's what
we're doing here. and i think it's pretty obvious by the sweat on your faces. >> you are constantly switching things up. there's cross-training. there's pilates, agility weight training, and i was never bored. >> and it's all over in five four -- hang in there -- three two, and time. boom! >> for me, and probably for a lot of women, we have this -- this muffin top that wants to happen. we gain 5 pounds, and it all seems to be right here. and the one thing about x3 is that it attacks that area. every single time i pushed "play," i felt like my stomach was getting smaller and smaller and smaller. look. can you see? i have lost almost 25 pounds 18 inches all over. i can't believe that my stomach looks the way that it does. it just takes 30 minutes -- just 30 minutes for 90 days. >> announcer: once you decide to do p90x3 and then commit to the intensity, you will succeed.
and we know this because, in multiple 90-day test groups, p90x3 users, on average, lost over 20 pounds and an incredible 35% of their body fat, all from just 30-minute workouts. >> so many people in this test group had such amazing results. we had, you know, a 95% success rate with p90x3. >> announcer: this is kevin, a graduating member of one of the p90x3 test groups. >> every day of x3, when i walked into the room, my goal was to give 3,000%. it's all about the intensity which is easier to do in a shorter period of time. 30 minutes. tony horton is a guru of knowledge and motivation. >> 30 minutes, done properly, in the right sequences, the right way, at the right speed gets it done. would you agree with that? >> all: yeah! >> being a kid, being 260 pounds, i was made fun of all the time. i couldn't play the games i
wanted to. x3 is what made me get to that dream that i've always had as a kid. i weighed 207 pounds. >> 207. and what do you weigh now? >> i weigh 175. >> 175. >> that's 32 pounds. >> 32 pounds from working out a half an hour a day? so, how's all that make you feel right now, standing here? are you getting teared up right now? >> no, man. no, no, no, no, no. >> what is that in there? your eyes are all moist and stuff. >> get back in there. >> ha!

[ tires screech, horn honks ] this is your chance to make the biggest change to your fitness in the shortest amount of time guaranteed or your money back, with no questions asked. call now. [ music continues ] >> hi. i'm jason. and this has been my gym for the
last 90 days. about 13 years ago, i got a scholarship for college to wrestle and run track... [ crowd cheering ] ...and run decathlon and the 400 hurdles. [ men grunting ] i played rugby. i did jiujitsu. i did mma. you know, i worked out 4 to 6 hours a day to stay in great shape, to compete. but it took a toll on me. i was just burnt out, so i stopped. i felt out of shape, and i was lazy and just felt blah, really. i saw that tony horton came out with a new p90x3 program. and i was like, "what?" so, i watched it, and i saw it was only 30 minutes a day. i was like..."done." you're lifting weights. you're doing cardio. i mean, you're doing everything. i mean, i'm an athlete, and those are all the things that it takes to be an athlete. you have to lift weights. you have to do cardio. you have to stretch. you have to take care of your body. and p90x3 has it all. >> form, function, and
precision -- this is how athletes move. >> put it in. you start working out, even if you're tired. and the next thing you know, it's halfway over. and it's go, go, go. and that's the kind of program that i really like. i like to get after it. >> pick up the speed. we got 15 seconds. >> my goals, when i started p90x3 -- i wanted to lose like 10 pounds, you know? and i lost 30 pounds in 90 days. i was just amazed at what happened in 30 minutes of exercise, eating right. the best reaction i've had was from my father-in-law. he said, "hi, jason. how are you? where's the rest of you?" [ chuckles ] so i was like, "oh, i left myself back home in my basement." i decided. i committed. i succeeded with p90x3. [ pulsing ] >> you figure, the more time you work out in one session, the more results you're going to get. turns out it doesn't work that way. this is how your body responds to prolonged exercise. you see, it's in that first
30 minutes that almost all of your fitness gains occur. but that sweet spot won't do you any good unless you've got a program that takes full advantage of that 30 minute window of change. that's where x3 kicks in. [ beeps ] [ clock ticking ] 3...2...1... bam! and you're done! >> you do not need to work out for an hour. it's not necessary. you don't need to put yourself through that struggle. before i started p90x3, i did think you needed about an hour to work out. >> come on, victor! that's the way to work. you don't think we're getting it done in 30 minutes? are you kidding me?! this is real. this is this. how much fun you having right now? >> [ laughs ] >> in the first 30 minutes of your workout, that's when your body is able to change the most. after that, your body just starts working less efficiently. so, as long as your workout is intense and you're giving 100% for 30 minutes, there's no need to work out for an hour. you don't have to go to the gym. you need very minimal equipment,
and you can do it in your house. you can do it in a hotel room. you have no excuses. in 90 days of p90x3, i lost 27 pounds. i didn't know it was possible to get such great results in 30 minutes a day. but i would have never imagined that, in 3 months, i would lose almost 30 pounds. that's pretty crazy. >> now show us your abs. [ laughter ] [ pulsing ] >> because of how fast these workouts are, we've designed all of the moves to hit more than just one muscle group, whether you're lifting, jumping, or striking. but the one area that gets worked the most is right here. every x3 routine is an ab routine. six-packs are what we build here. show america your abs, 'cause we -- we might have... you should see the "before" picture -- didn't look like that. >> you don't see the results when you go to the gym honestly. in the gym, i would wait for a machine or see what someone else was doing and walk around. i would spend two uneventful
hours. >> don't tell me you got to spend an hour and a half in the gym, moving weights around. look at the pump that we got. >> one thing i found out, by being in this test group, is you don't need time. with 30 minutes a day, i started seeing results, really, in two weeks. i've lost 20 pounds in 90 days. i knew where it came from. [ laughs ] >> this is what happens when you show up. this is what happens when you don't quit. this is what happens when you make the best of your 30 minutes. boom! >> announcer: if you've been at your gym for more than 90 days and you don't have results like these, you're in the wrong gym. you need this one. it's called "p90x3," a brand-new 30 minute extreme fitness boot camp that features almost every exercise class you could find at your old gym, from weight training to jump training, martial arts, cardio, yoga pilates, and more. and every workout, start to finish, is only 30 minutes. the muscle acceleration system
in p90x3 is designed to constantly introduce new moves and routines, keeping you engaged with more variety and intensity than any other workout, so that your body quickly sheds fat and builds lean muscle at an accelerated rate. and the results are extreme. all you need is 6 square feet of space, a set of dumbbells, and a pull-up bar. or to make things even easier, you can do the whole program with a pro-grade variable resistance band, and that's it. then, just spend 30 minutes a day with 16 of the most transforming workouts ever created. there are six muscle-building resistance routines, including eccentric, synergistic, and classic weightlifting... three cross-training power workouts for explosive athletic performance, featuring plyometrics, agility training, and more... three fat-scorching cardio routines, including martial arts, speed drills, and weighted cardio... two advanced flexibility workouts, featuring dynamix stretching and extreme yoga. plus, two special ab-ripping

[ horn honks ] that's a $15 value, free, so you won't have to wait 2 to 3 weeks to get x3. you'll have it in 2 to 5 business days. and if you're interested in athletic performance, ask your operator about p90x3's elite fitness training block featuring workouts specifically designed for professional athletes. your new body is waiting inside this program. operators are standing by. [ beeping ] [ dramatic music plays ] [ crickets chirping ] 4 our of every 5 gym memberships go unused. the main reason people stop going to the gym is because they stop seeing results. it makes sense. if you're using the same machines and doing the same routine, your body will adapt and you will experience the
plateau effect. the muscle acceleration system in p90x3 hits your muscles with a complex system of moves and techniques so that your body is forced to keep changing throughout the entire 90 days. and because we've packed it all into 30 minutes, staying committed to a 90-day deadline is that much easier. >> when a workout's shorter, mentally, that's gonna push you. >> let's go, boys. you got three minutes left. come on. come on. come on. >> whoo! >> there was a ton of variety. i mean, there's yoga, pilates, kickboxing, strength, total-body workout, cardio, strength and cardio in one workout, and it keeps your body guessing because your body's like, "what is going on? there's so much!" usually, you're going to the gym, and you're going to the elliptical or the treadmill, and you're sitting there, pumping it out. and your body gets used to that. it's the same motion over and over again. or, you know, you're lifting and you're doing the same routine. and there's no change because your body mastered it. well, p90x3 takes it to a whole new level, where it keeps
throwing things at your body and your body keeps adapting and that's how you see results climb, and that's how you get results, really. this program isn't just a workout program -- it's a nutrition guide, as well, and talks all about nutrition. there's no counting calories or carbs. it's just counting portion sizes, based on the size of your hand. like, it's kind of crazy. and to think that that would work -- it actually did. i got shredded in 90 days. i lost 10 pounds, but gained muscles. i gained muscle and lost body fat -- same time. and that's very hard to do. i achieved a physique that i never thought i would reach. and to do that in only 30 minutes a day was absolutely insane. [ pulsing ] >> i couldn't work out for more than 5 minutes at a time. i was so out of shape. and i was really upset at myself, but i just remember telling myself, "if i push
like, every single day, i can do it, and i will lose this weight." being in a gym made me feel self-conscious because i always felt like people were looking at me and like, "oh. she's not doing that right," or, "oh, why is she working out?" being at home makes me feel comfortable. i can try new things and know that nobody is judging me. >> if this speed and pace is too fast for you, then slow it down. do your own. >> every single day, it got so much easier. i was lifting weights. i was using my own body weight. i was doing yoga. i was doing pilates. i was doing everything, and in 30 minutes, i got it done. >> why not work the whole body? that's what p90x3 is about. you start from the top of your head to your toenails. my toenails are so fit right now... >> [ laughs ] >> ...it is crazy. there are muscles on my toenails. >> i lost 32 pounds, and i lost 20 inches all over. so i just shrunk everywhere, and the fat just melted off of me. everybody should try p90x3. it works.
i'm not being paid to say this. i -- >> [ laughs ] >> [ laughs ] i didn't think it was gonna work for me, but if you stick to the plan, you will lose the weight and you will be happy. >> the "x" in "p90x3" stands for "extreme" -- not extreme commitment, but extreme results. that means you can turn around years of neglect and lose up to 60 pounds or more in just 90 days because x3 is so efficient at keeping your body challenged. [ beeping ] this is ed, one of the heaviest members of the p90x3 test groups. >> 240. >> 240. oh, my god. i always knew in the back of my head that, like, "oh, i should really make a big change in my life. i should really do something." >> that way. now go back. >> 30-minute workouts -- they really work for me because, in my head, it's not such a big task. and once you do it, you realize, "oh, wow, 10 minutes are left," just like that. and as you're going through it it just goes by so quick. in these 30 minutes, it's so intense that i definitely feel like i'm getting a better workout.
it's crazy -- exercise after exercise after exercise. here's your break -- 30 seconds, then right back at it. so you're just fitting so much more into those 30 minutes. i have lost almost 43 pounds 23 inches off of my body 9 inches off my waist. [ laughs ] oh, i even have six abs peeking through, so it's kind of nice. yes, i'm gonna do another -- another round of p90x3. so, i am here to look at my final photos after two rounds of x3. take a look? oh, gosh. [ laughs ] good gosh. x3 experience has been just transformational, inside and out, just having gone from, you know, as being this fat, kind of out-of-shape guy to being the guy who always wants to do, you know, an extra mile on a hike. this is all due to x3. >> announcer: 20- and 30-year-olds call this "shredding." 40- and 50-year-olds call it "turning back the clock."
across the country, people are looking for a physique they never thought possible. and with p90x3's 30-minute workouts, they're finding it staring right back at them from the mirror -- young, young at heart, even those folks who didn't think they'd ever look good in a birthday suit again. >> you know, a lot of people have been left behind. a lot of folks have been left at the bottom of the mountain, and they just assume that that's what their body is supposed to look like. they assume that they're gonna be overweight. they assume, "because my parents look that way, i'm supposed to look that way." but the program is set up so it's doable. it's doable. a half an hour -- doable. and so all these folks who have struggled in the past, not gotten the results they wanted thought that they had these body types that weren't gonna change -- those beliefs shattered. [ thud echoes ] with p90x3, they're not at the bottom of the mountain -- they're up here with me. >> announcer: getting into the best shape of your life is no longer a dream. there's a clear path ahead that will get you there faster than any other fitness program, and it all starts at this moment. [ beeps ] you decide to do p90x3, you
commit to the 30-minute workouts, and in 90 days, we guarantee you'll succeed, or your money back. all you need is 6 square feet of space, a set of dumbbells, and a pull-up bar. or to make things even easier, you can do the whole program with a pro-grade variable resistance band, and that's it. then, just spend 30 minutes a day with 16 of the most transforming workouts ever created. there are six muscle-building resistance routines, including eccentric, synergistic, and classic weightlifting... three cross-training power workouts for explosive athletic performance, featuring plyometrics, agility training, and more... three fat-scorching cardio routines, including martial arts, speed drills, and weighted cardio... two advanced flexibility workouts, featuring dynamix stretching and extreme yoga. plus, two special ab-ripping core routines that rewrites the book on how to get flat, defined six-pack abs. if you're willing to work out hard for 30 minutes, these
