P90X Equipment- What do you need to do the P90X workout?

Below is the minimum P90X gear that you’ll need to get through the program:

  1. P90X DVD’s (“P90X Training System”)– Comes with the 12 workout P90X DVD’s, a nutrition plan, and a fitness guide.
  2. P90X Pull Up Bar– This is a must since 3 of the 12 P90X DVD’s use the pull up bar.
  3. Resistance Bands or Dumbbells– Either of these will work, but you need at least one or the other. I’m using dumbbells that I bought from Wal-Mart (it was a set that goes up to 20lbs on each dumbbell, I paid about $40 for it). The resistance bands are great for when you travel.

In addition to the above, I’ll also be using the following optional P90X fitness gear:

  1. P90X Recovery Drink– This helps your muscles repair and rebuild after a workout. You should drink this within an hour of working out.
  2. Whey Protein– You’ve got to have enough protein in your diet to build muscle and shred fat. It’s a great snack option to have when you need something quick and easy.
  3. Yoga Mat- This makes the P90X ab exercises and the P90X yoga much more enjoyable (a hard wood floor or carpet rubbing against your skin doesn’t feel all that great).
  4. Yoga Blocks (2)– I’m definitely a beginner at yoga, so these have really helped out. These help stabilize you and deepen your posture during difficult poses.
  5. Heart Rate Monitor- This makes it really easy to see if you are in the zone, and to see how your fitness level is improving.
  6. Push Up Bars– This helps alleviate stress on the wrist joints when doing pushups.

Where should you buy all of your P90X equipment?

The best place to buy P90X gear is straight from the source- Beachbody. You can buy everything you need from the Beachbody Store with the exception of dumbbells (as I mentioned earlier you can buy a set pretty cheap at Wal-Mart).

I bought the P90X Results package with has the following (I highly recommend this option since you save over $24)-

How can you get a discount on P90X gear and get the best possible results out of the P90X workout?

Well, first off there aren’t any P90X coupon codes or P90X discount codes available, but there are discounts available.  If you want to get a 10% discount on the P90X program and other P90X gear, then you should sign up for the Beachbody Club Membership Account. It is only $2.99 a week and the membership virtually pays for itself because of the 10% discount. If you buy the P90X Results Package, then you are basically getting over 2 months of the Club Membership for free (P90X Results Package, $269.70 minus 10% discount equals $26.97, which is 9 weeks of the Club Membership at $2.99 per week). You can also cancel at anytime so you’re not locked into any type of contract. Below are the benefits to signing up for the Club Membership account.

Lastly, if you want to get a huge P90X discount, and a huge discount on all other Beachbody products, then you should consider becoming a Beachbody Coach (this is the route that I took). This is for individuals who are serious and committed to getting fit and healthy. You get a 25% discount on all P90X gear and other Beachbody products, and you can also earn commissions by selling Beachbody products to your friends, family members, co-workers etc (there is no inventory, you just direct them to your own website like this one). It actually is a very easy sell (and really doesn’t feel like selling at all), because once people start seeing the results you are getting from P90X then they will usually ask what kind of workout you’re doing. There are also roughly 7 other ways you can earn money as a Beachbody coach.
