I get asked which I prefer more, quite often, between Focus T25 and P90X3.
Here's the skinny, no pun intended....
T25 is probably my favorite program right now, as far as mindless, easy, anyone can do-exercise/fitness/movement. The modifications cater to TRULY ANYONE, at any fitness level. So I recommend it most often, lately, because it is great for beginners as well as more advanced people who need to be pushed. The multiple levels of options in each move are the best Beachbody has offered to date. PLUS, the programs are each 25 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is STUPID easy for ANYONE to fit in. Cardio makes us lean, this is a fact. And it is good for your heart! No brainer there. But different than Shaun T's Insanity workout program, it does not at all beat your joints up or leave you crying for Mother Mary. I find it WAY, WAY more enjoyable. Plus the addition of free weights in month 2 make it something that really speaks to me. I love synergistic exercise, LOVE IT (exercise where you move multiple body parts at once, like doing a lunge with the legs and curl with the arms/free weights at the same time-I love moving in that way).
As for P90X3, I have done that as well. And Tony Horton IS. THE. MAN. Seriously. Anyone who loves and respects Yoga as much as he, has GOT to have his mind super squared away, in my opinion. I did T25 when I was moving, stressed out, deploying husband, had NO TIME and it provided, quick, mindless, effective workouts for an extremely busy lifestyle. It worked really well for me. But when it is time to take your life and totally resurrect your wellness and health, then P90X3 is the PERFECT place to start. You will NEVER get bored with this program. You will be jumping lightly, moving like a speed skater, doing Pilates, Yoga and pull ups with a bar or band, whichever your body or home accommodates. The equipment is minimal and fun. You work each and every muscle group in your body in a million different ways. Blocks one and two are SUPER easy compared to the 1st version of P90X and block 3 is where the massive results seem to happen for most people (so you CANNOT quit or you will be disappointed, but who likes a quitter anyway?). The modifications are not quite as obvious in this program as they are in T25, but I can help you make that better if you are a beginner, or plug into a good coach who will help you there. I recommend it because it is Beachbody and ANYTHING they make is worth the money and comes with a free coach. These workouts are 30 minutes and I preferred following the "Lean" version, but you have 3 options/versions to best choose from for your particular body type. So the amazing options are endless. This is definitely a good one to have in a life long video library and always have on hand to own.
In both the programs, the meal planners are extremely decent. I will leave it at that. But again, working with an experienced coach is where your success will lie in this department. To sum it all up, just get moving. Your body will LOVE you for it. "Do your best and forget the rest." FOR REAL.
