P90x or Billy Blanks PT 24/7 Workout System?

If you have had any experience with either the P90x or the Billy Blanks PT 24/7 Workout System (Tae Bo) can you tell me how you are doing and what your results are?

I used the Tae Bo *VHS* tapes (lol) when I was 13 and lost about 40lbs. So I do have experience with that. I want to try the p90x but obviously at $140, its kind of steep. The Billy Blanks workout is $60. So I'd like to hear some of your opinions if you dont mind :)

  • My husband and I did P90X together a little over a year ago and it will kick your butt! It is BY FAR the hardest workout/diet plan I have ever done. My husband did it to lose weight, I just did it to be supportive and get toned. And like Rebecca.R said, the diet is VERY important! We did the portion approach, it was easier for us. My husband has co-workers that do the workouts but not the diet and you can barely tell they have been doing any kind of workout at all.
    My husband is now doing P90X again, since he gained a lot of weight back this summer when he had his back surgery. I am pregnant so I can't do it with him this time. I can't compare the two, because I have never done any of Billy Blanks workouts but I know that if you do P90X and REALLY do it, you will be really happy with the results. It is hard, but just give it all you got! Good luck!

  • I can't stand Tony Horton so I haven't done P90X....yet. We have it, but I haven't done it as of yet. Personally, I prefer Insanity. It is harder than P90X...I lost 12 lbs and 2" when I did Insanity last year.
