    I want to get in better shape, but I don't want to switch from one program to the next.  Based on the majority of people's feedback I'll choose which workout to do!

    I'm a 57 year old grandmother. When I was in my late 20's and 30's, I taught aerobic exercise and dance. It proved to be the best thing for me because I love to dance, plus, since I was an instructor, I was forced to be at the studio every day. Now, I'm retired and going to the gym seems to take up so much effort. Instead of leaving home to exercise, I stay home and do one-minute exercises throughout the day. I do a minimum of 20 one-minute sessions each day. I pick strategic times throughout the day, such as during commercials, after snacks and meals, while I am on the phone, any time is a good time. It works very well for me. I pick an exercise and do it for a minute. It could be squats, push-ups, arm curls with a can of soup in each hand, sit-ups, whatever! The key is to do it for a minute. There is hardly a day that I can't find one minute here and there to give me a total of 20 minutes of exercise a day. In fact, right after I post this answer, I'm going to do one minute of squats!

    I have done Body for Life, P90X, gym memberships, and work outs at home, they all work great, the only thing I notice about all of them is once you stop, you get out of shape again.  The one that got the best results was Body for Life, because I stuck to it the longest smile

    P90X is good if you can regularly do it ... it's simple and very effective... i would recommend it to all who can do it.

    For health never take short cuts because you will have to pay price.

    Instead of that go to gym ... take a walk or jogging on regular basis and soon you will feel and see the difference.

    From personal experience P90X worked better than simply going to the gym for me. I played baseball from the time I was 5 until my freshman year in college, once I stopped I quickly got out of shape. Not fat, just out of the shape I was used to being in. Going to the gym alone was OK, but not getting me back into baseball shape. Mainly because I was working out and doing various baseball related activities at the time (working many more muscle groups). This is where P90X shines. If you follow their workout routine you will hit almost every muscle group several times a week. I would advise you to do the classic workout and not the lean one if you are in somewhat descent shape. I didn't start seeing major results until I switched to classic. Mainly because of the Plyometrics workout, if I had to guess.

    PS. Don't knock the Yoga before you try it. I did. Big mistake, it kicked my butt for the first 3 times I did it.

    Hey, you're beautiful they way you are. What guaranty do you have that you'd not have a gaunt face or a sunken face if all the fat on your face is gone. A little bit of everything is needed to look beautiful.
