Tip of the day

I get sent junk e-mails every day but today I received a good one. Don't know who the original author is but the message is simple and perfect. 

Nothing is ever solved, or created, by standing still. Movement is the process of the Universe. So move. Do something. Anything. But do not stand still. Do not remain "on the horns of a dilemma."  Do not fence sit. 
 
Put your foot down on one side or the other, swing the opposite leg over and start walking. You'll know before you take ten steps if you're going in the right direction. Not to decide is to decide. Try to not make choices by default.

Tony,

The first time I left you a message here (last month) I told you how grateful I was to you for inspiring me through P90X. Of course I have't even finished the first round yet (I'm in the middle of month two) but once again (and I'm sorry if what I'm gonna say is sorta unrelated to your post), I wanted to thank you for bringing this magnificent program to my and millions of other people's lives.

It's not just that after one month I can see some physical results. It's that I've never felt SO great in my life. It's as if there's some sort of MENTAL and physical rejuvenation happening in my body. This, believe you me, means so much to me cos right before I ever knew about you and P90X, I was really lost in what you so beautifully put it "all these gidgets and gadgets that don't work". P90X has begun to transform both my mental and physical state and that's why it is and will be such an important part of my life now.

Thank you Tony not just for trying to give me the best shape of my life, but for helping me experience some of the best time of my life.

Khashayer,

You have discovered the real magic behind health and fitness. Your succinct description of the mental and emotion benefits of exercise are undeniable.

Thank you for your hard work and honesty my friend.

Do your best and forget the rest, for the rest of your life.

AWESEOME WORDS on both counts.

Here's a few that my Dad has been kicking out lately Tony.

and this other gem

Back in ancient Rome sometime around 43 BC, one our common ancestors, a poet by the name of Ovid, wrote "All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.”

There you have it, Tony. Constant movement equals change. They knew it in back then in the largest and most advanced empire the world had ever seen, and WE know it now in this great, advanced nation. Just like in many of your wonderful exercise videos, constant movement is always stressed, and I firmly believe that this concept should and must be transferred to daily life and thought.

Go get it!

Change does not excite, it disturbs. But if success is what we seek, we must make change a partner in our pursuits.

Tony,

I've been using several of your programs for the past year and I'm now into my second round of P90X. I know how true this tip actually is. I knew P90X was an extreme program, so I worked my way up to it. In every workout, I chose to push myself that extra little bit more. The reason is simple, because I chose to.

My folks said "you're getting too skinny" or "you're working out too much". Well, one month after doing P90X, I had to move something for my mom. I lifted it with one hand and moved it. I came back and her eyes were wide as she said to me, "You got stroong." Now, I'm in my second round of P90X. Last week at dinner, my mom commented, "Look at your arms. They're getting bigger!" Well, not that big, but I'm working on it.

Working out thing isn't about me anymore, it's about my future. I'm 38 and in a relationship. When I have kids, I want to be active and do things with them.

So, thank you for creating these videos to help people reach their potential, and beyond. I will do P90X+ and One On One. I have achieved some goals, and I am continuing to work on others. For me, this is only the beginning.

Hello there, I do think your website may be having browser compatibility problems.

When I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine
but when opening in I.E., it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, fantastic website!
