I’ve done it for about a month. I really loved it (am actually thinking of trying to start again once I get over this cold). It’s incredibly hard (like could barely walk for a week), but I felt like I saw results incredibly quickly! The only con is it’s also incredibly time consuming (its at least an hour a day and 3 days its 1.5 hours) and you get one day off. I started skipping due to work obligations and then I eventually just stopped. It is an awesome workout though.

It is bloody hard.  Like I’m not in that great of shape, but my friends who are… can’t do it.  I literally like sweat bullets and have shaking legs from the yoga.  Its INTENSE. 

If you try it and its too hard, Insanity is the step down.

I’ve done Cardio X and the yoga. I don’t do all of them- I stick mainly to the Cardio X and I’ve lost 4 pounds since I’ve started back up with it. It’s the shortest one too, so it’s easier to get the workout in. My Darling Husband does them all and he’s fit and lean and I’m flabby so I’ve been stepping up my game.

I borrowed the discs from a friend (who gave up) and just made my own schedule with it. It is SO hard, but if you do it every other day, instead of the daily requirement, I feel like you’re less likely to quit. Just go for a jog on the days you skip so you’re still burning calories. Good luck!! πŸ™‚

Fiance and I got through almost all of the first round (we stopped like around day 75 because summer fun > working out).  I really enjoyed it, I agree with the fact that it takes up a lot of time though.  It definately toned me up.  Now I just do Yoga X, Ab Ripper and I put in some of my own workouts inbetween.  I rotate those every other day.

It’s hard as hell but it works! Stick with it – don’t get discouraged. It gave me the best results out of any fitness program I have ever tried! πŸ™‚

@Eireann:  go for it!! 

I definitely have to press pause A LOT.  But the most important thing – is to keep pressing play!

I’m doing it right now and enjoy it. Be sure to follow the nutrition plan. Remember, 80 percent of your results are based on nutrition. I also recommend checking out the Beach Body message boards. There’s a lot of helpful information on those boards.

I’m on an accountability thread that’s pretty good. It’s nice because there are a lot of knowledgeable people on there who have completed the program. Everyone’s really friendly, so feel free to join.

my Fiance has got to day 60 twice and I know a few guy friends who completed it… just seeing him do it made me exhausted! however I’ve been doing EA active 2 on the ps3 (also aval for wii and xbox360) and it is a great workout… I lost 15 lbs on EA Active 1 and thought a change would do me good…. 2.5 weeks into the 9 week challenge πŸ™‚ i recommend (im about the same size as you now)

If you have trouble with the P90X ones at first, you can get the older P90 workout. I totally couldn’t do P90X, but P90 is less intense, and it’s a good way to start. It’s just two DVDs. It’s meant to take 90 days, too, so you could do it first and then do P90X after!

@Eireann: Nice! The nutrition plan is not too bad. I’m in phase one, which is a heavy-protein diet, so you definitely don’t feel hungry. I think you’ll enjoy it. πŸ™‚
