Challenge - Sign upWhat is the 90 Day Challenge?

The 90 day challenge is a workout plan that lasts 90 days.  Tony Horton and OUAB challenge you to do a P90X workout that lasts for 90 days, and then do your last workout with Tony on March 28, 2015.  To learn more about P90X check it out here and here.

When does it start?

December 28, 2014.  This will allow you to complete your 90 days so that you can celebrate your last day of the program with Tony when he comes to Ohio State. If you have to start later, that is ok too, but your 90 days will go past the day when Tony comes.


Who can participate?

Any Ohio State Columbus campus students.  We encourage you to find a group of friends to take the challenge together.  We will have a Facebook group with motivation and a way to track your workouts to see how you stack up on the leaderboard.  In order to workout with Tony on March 28, you must have a valid BuckID to get a ticket.

Do I have to do all 90 days?

Yes! Stay on track! We will make sure you stay motivated and it always helps working out with friends.  What better way to get in shape than with hundreds of Buckeyes.

How do I keep track of my workouts?

We will have a daily tracker where you will input your workouts and at the end of the week we will show you your stats and how you’re improving.

Which P90X can I do?

Any of them! There are 4 to choose from (P90, P90X, P90X2, P90X3).


Program Length of Workout Benefits How it works Who Should Use it?
P90 25-45min 90 Day Body Transformation for Everyone Now you don’t have to go to the extreme to get dramatic, visible results! Tony Horton’s all-new P90® workouts are simple, doable, and made to change your body right away—regardless of your age or fitness level. Beginners – used as a prequel to P90X
P90X 45-60min Advanced total-body training program focused on abs, legs, chest, back, and arms. 12 routines that keep introducing new moves and challenging your muscles to get you absolutely ripped in 90 days People with moderate capabilities looking to get fit
P90X2 50-60min Each workout engages more muscles with every move, helping you build the body of an athlete for just 90 days Features a breakthrough in sports science called Muscle Integration, a training technique focused on instability. By doing resistance moves on one foot, a ball, or some other unstable platform, your body is forced to engage more muscles with each movement of the 12 workouts, burning more calories and delivering the kind of results pro athletes pay thousands of dollars for. Advanced for those looking for the most extreme athletic workout (a lot of apparatus needed)
P90X3 30min Get ripped in 30 minutes a day Study after study shows that the most dramatic body transformations happen . . . in the first 30 minutes of exercise. Tony Horton’s breakthrough Muscle Acceleration system combines a highly structured, plateau-busting schedule with an unprecedented variety of moves that keep every muscle challenged every day for 30 minutes of full-throttle intensity. P90X3 is a whole workout in half the time. People with fast paced lives who are still looking to get fit.

What if I don’t have P90X?

It’s never too late to ask for a holiday gift!  Or ask if your family and friends have it, you never know if they would be willing to let you borrow it.  Take the challenge with friends and share the DVD’s!
