I intend to take a look at P90X at some point but my main focus is gaining body strength and getting in shape before summer.
Anyone else doing Insanity and have had success with it or with P90X or Turbo Fire?

It all depends on what you're trying to do. Insanity is ok for weight loss due to the constant cardio exercise that keeps your body in a catabolic
(fat burning) state. Sometimes I use Insanity workouts for my cardio. The only problem I have with Insanity is that it places far too much focus on
cardio and leaves out the weights entirely, though it does compensate somewhat with plenty of body weight exercises. It is lacking in some areas
If you are trying to both lose weight as well as tone muscle and maybe gain some muscle, P90X is the way to go. Studies have shown that lifting
weights can have a greater effect on fat loss than cardio does, which is why a good trainer will include a heavy dose of weight lifting for shedding
pounds fast. In the end either will work as long as you maintain a HEALTHY DIET, and by diet I don't mean one of these fad "diets" like the salad
diet, or Atkins, or whatever. If your diet is sub-par, then your results will also be sub-par, regardless of how much you work out.
Personally, I would go with P90X if you have that kind of time and energy to devote to fitness. Just be warned, P90X is almost like taking on a part
time job. I'm male, and my first round of P90X I gained around 8 pounds of lean muscle, and took my body fat down to 4%. It is a well designed, easy
to follow program.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
