    • yeah.. that should a good company do manage things in worst.. they must be down towards their clients :)

      for sure their was just a human error in terms of over charging.. im sure much consumer would understand, unless if some critics would take advantage and make it more worst.. hope not so.. but i do think this consumers needs more satisfaction, and thats the challenge of the company should be :)


    • April 8, 2010 1:01 PM PDT
    • Yeah, thanks but, it looks like their issues were dealt with. In fact, the representative for the company was very good and apologetic to the customers who were overcharged, and told them he would definitely take care of it, and he must have because there were no further complaints in that regard. I think that a company like Team Beachbody that wants to improve their image while doing good and selling their products needs to have an open ended consumer relationship where if there is any dissatisfaction at all, the consumer is right, not the company. Good news for Team Beachbody that they see it that way too, regardless of if there was a contract or not.

    • April 8, 2010 3:52 AM PDT
    • yeah,, mostly it is.. im not really sure about this issue.. but i think it would not be the company would take into the situation like that if the consumer doesn't violated something.. more of this things really happens because of contract.. but really dont know much of the negotiation of team beach body, all is just my opinion... maybe people just make things longer... ill get back after i can get informations about this issue :)

    • April 7, 2010 10:06 PM PDT
    • I have seen that this company is offering a lot of what looks like weight loss assistance and products to its members. Reminds me of an expanded Weight Watchers or Jennie Craig program.

      I have also seen that the number one Team Beachbody complaint seems to be that the company does not stop charging people when they cancel. I did see that a representative of Team Beachbody was addressing the complaints (and they were in a simple forum, so clearly they are on top of their game), but the issue of charging people long after they have closed their account is not a Team Beachbody complaint exclusively. Lots of other companies seem to have this issue.

    • I definitely appreciate the info P90xpert, thanks for typing that up, there was alot covered and I appreciate the straightforward and detailed information you provided. I'm hearing very good things about this product overall and will be keeping an eye out for more news.

    • April 5, 2010 2:09 PM PDT
    • thank you for that information p90xpert  :) hope that solves the question of wallacel . im just amaze how this total routine would bring.. i think you gave the best detail on the time allotment when it comes to p90x...

      i have read this quote..

      The secret behind the P90X system is an advanced training technique called Muscle Confusion™, which accelerates the results process by constantly introducing new moves and routines so your body never plateaus, and you never get bored! Whether you want to get lean, bulk up, or just plain get ripped, there's an endless variety of ways to mix and match the routines to keep you motivated the full 90 days and beyond!


      really true :)

    • April 5, 2010 3:32 AM PDT
    • The BeachBody P90X workouts are broken down by individual DVD, and each works a different set of muscles.

      Here's how it breaks down.

      For weeks 1 - 3

      Day 1: Chest & Back plus Ab Ripper X

      Chest and back workout consists of a variety of pushups and pullups and some light barbell work ( whatever you can do 12 - 20 reps with ). The video is approximately an hour, with about five minutes of warm up ( running in place, stretching, etc ) and a cool down at the end ( more of the same ). Each excericse on the video takes between 30 second to a minute and half to complete. With a short break in between. Even though the X in P90X stands for extreme - the workouts themselves are very basic, its just the fact that you are keeping your heart rate up the entire time that makes it "extreme".  The video's even encourage you to take a longer break if necessary in between, but I think maintaining the cardio is what really helps you burn off calories while building muscle.

      Ab Ripper X is not as bad as it sounds. About 16 minutes of ab workout with a variety of situps and twists.

      Day 2: Plyometrics

      This is all cardio. By far the hardest video of the bunch, and the one I think most people don't complete the first time through. Lots of stuff like jumping jacks, hops, lunges, and so on, at a steady pace. I think the P90X book estimates you will burn off about 600 calories during the workout. I totally believe it.  It's also the only workout in the first three weeks that lasts longer than one hour.

      Day 3: Shoulders & Arms, Ab Ripper X

      Arm Curls and Chin Up variations. Save as day one, just focusing on different primary muscle group. Barbells with weight you can do 12 to 20 times. Again, nothing fancy, just a steady pace that keeps you working and keeps your cardio up.

      Day 4: Yoga X

      Never thought I would sweat during Yoga. But never realized how much it takes to balance and hold some of those positions. But by day 4 the stretching is just amazing. 

      Day 5: Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X

      All basic stuff again for the legs. Lunges, wall squats ( leaning against the wall in a chair position and holding the position till you get the 'burn'), really basic stuff. More pullups for the back and shoulders.

      Day 6: Kenpo X

      To me, the best workout of the bunch. All punches, blocks and kicks. Steady pace to keep up cardio.

      Day 7: Rest or do the X Stretch video

      At the end of the first three weeks, you change up for week 4:

      Day 1: Yoga X

      Day 2: Core Synergistics ( core workout )

      Day 3: Kenpo X

      Day 4: Stretch

      Day 5: Core Synergistics

      Day 6: Yoga X

      Day 7: Rest or X Stretch

      Weeks 5-7 it changes up again with some new workouts.

      Day 1: Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab Ripper X

      ( and so on )

      According to Tony Horton, the point is to create "Extreme Muscle Confusion" so you don't just hit a plateau. It also keeps it from getting boring since you're not doing the same video every day.

      All the workouts except Plymetrics run just about 1 hour. You pick the time of day you want to do the workout, and just try to stick to the same schedule.

    • April 5, 2010 1:16 AM PDT
    • I'm genuinely impressed with the concept of the P90X workout because muscles do grow adjusted to repetitive processes, and much like cross training; very effective to utilize ever changing activities in shaping the body and improving overall health. My main question is: How difficult is it for a first time user to follow the movements on any particular workout without enough opportunities to learn it? On one hand, I can completely see that removing the chronically-consistent workout routines in favor of shifting the process and shocking the body is very effective, but how many times do you get to learn the routine before its time to change it up? Obviously I'm not suggesting that each DVD would only be used once before moving onto the next one, but I am curious as to the amount of time each routine is allotted and on what schedule if any?

    • definitely, thats what i mean for :) anyone can build their team beach body for sure.. as long as they support beach body... :) team beachbody would be better for the beginners..  but for sure, if you think you know more than the coach of team beach body has.. you can build your own team :)

    • April 7, 2010 10:11 PM PDT
    • I think that Beachbody and Team Beachbody are actually one in the same company, with one aspect, the Beachbody aspect, being solely the product line, and Team Beachbody, being the weight loss and workout assistance program. With Beachbody, you can simply buy the products and use them on your own. Under the Team Beachbody system, you would actually follow their diet and fitness plan using the same products, but gaining the extra services.

    • April 7, 2010 11:33 PM PDT
    • yes.. ofcourse.. there is.. and keep in touch.. ill post some info of the products that you were looking for..

    • April 7, 2010 10:15 PM PDT
    • These Beachbody products seem to be geared toward people who want to achieve an almost body-builder physique, not really those who are simply interested in losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight. Are there any Beachbody products that are simply for the use of maintaining a healthy weight without all of the super-athlete training along with it?

    • April 5, 2010 1:52 PM PDT
    • yes!!!

      this would slim6 can give you :) definitely.. allot of beach body products is very useful.. but p90x benefits allot :)

    • There are other BeachBody products besides the P90X if that seems too much for a beginning workout.

      ChaLEAN, Turbo Jam, 10 Minutes Trainer, etc all are examples of other BeachBody products that are just as popular.

      Slim in 6 is another of their most popular products:

    • thanks.. great review :)

      as i have search also, that the team beach body and  beach body is just selling same products, they just differ in the service, as the team beach body has a coach to help you train...

      i just got this info from a certain site.. allot of great benefit in p90x program... i think this is the best they have.. :)

      many testimonies, that people doesnt got this product amaze when they tried it... cool product again :)

    • April 6, 2010 3:12 AM PDT
    • by the way, i would like also to add this.. the advantage and disadvantage of turbo jam...

      i got this from a review to a certain site.. :)


      • The Turbo Jam fitness program involves regular exercise routines.
      • There is a program demo available on the official website.
      • Turbo Jam can be easily and conveniently purchased through the official website.


      • The official website states that Turbo Jam should not be started without a consultation with a physician.
      • There are no fat burning supplements offered with the Turbo Jam weight reduction program.
      • Turbo Jam involves a fairly significant lifestyle change in regards to regular exercise regimes.
      • The official Turbo Jam website is set up more like a massive ad or infomercial than an information source.
      • If you haven’t seen success following exercise programs in the past, Turbo Jam alone may not have much different to offer you.

    • April 6, 2010 3:07 AM PDT
    • yes.. ill give one of the testimonies of what they said 700+ calories in 45 min...


      LOVE this workout!
      I will be the first to admit that 700+ calories per workout sounds unrealistic. Obviously there are a number of factors which impact the total number of calories you might burn during any workout. Having said all of the above, I will say that two days ago I went through a 53 minute turbo workout and did in fact burn 721 calories. I was working HARD. My HRM said that my average HR was 160 (max is 185). Pretty good for a home video program - much better than what I've experienced with The FIRM and Cathe. Not knocking those programs because they rock in their own right...but please don't dismiss TJ as a fad (or penalize it because of its association with BeachBody - get your videos from ebay if you're worried). It REALLY does burn the calories! 


      heres the link of this testimony :)

      ill get back with more testimonies regarding this 700 in 45min cal :)

      hoping i could find the university study:)


    • April 5, 2010 11:47 PM PDT
    • Thanks for the link IMdoggz, and I'd be more than grateful for any further info you happen to come upon as to the college studies. From all I have read and seen so far I don't doubt the validity of the workout and its effectiveness, I just want to see some of the actual data or at least get an idea of how the studies were conducted etc. The claims made from a health sciences perspective are fairly extreme and if the claims made about how this workout effects the body are true from a physiological perspective, then something like this would change the entire fitness world. Most countries in the modern world have all employed various forms of boot camp, which has been the standard for pushing the limits of fitness. If this workout really does produce those kinds of calorie burning figures, it would replace a portion of those routines as fast as governments could test and implement them. What I find most appealing of all, is that this workout system has a reputation of being unforgiving, and it gains a bit of authenticity in the sense that it does not share the "gimmicky" feel that many diet and fitness products share. To lose weight, grow muscle, and increase fitness, it takes effort, and the willingness to live a different way. With the exception of the gloves (why not just hold a set of light dumbbells?), I do see a great deal of potential here, and I would like to see any and all validity of this product come to fruition.

    • April 5, 2010 3:25 AM PDT
    • yes.. actually i have just researched this stuff... 

      ill get back if i saw some details when it come to the university research... it was just said in the product catalog...actually it do 96% muscle activity.. as you can see a sort of movie clips here on what they are doing.. heres the link :)

    • i think this is a must for me to share... more benefits we could get from this article..

      Top 10 Reasons to Give Up SodaBy Steve Edwards

      If you're looking for a scapegoat in the obesity epidemic, look no further than soda. It's the single greatest caloric source in the world, accounting for somewhere between 11 and 19 percent of all the calories consumed worldwide. It's cheap, addictive, and readily available, which generally means that it will take some willpower to avoid. But don't despair, as we at Beachbody® are here to help. We present: our top 10 reasons to give up soda. Drumroll please . . .

      Soda Cans

      1. Soda may cause cancer. According to a report in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, consuming two or more soft drinks per week increased the risk of developing pancreatic cancer by nearly twofold compared to individuals who did not consume soft drinks. As reported, the study "followed 60,524 men and women in the Singapore Chinese Health Study for 14 years. During that time, there were 140 pancreatic cancer cases. Those who consumed two or more soft drinks per week (averaging five per week) had an 87 percent increased risk compared with individuals who did not."

        Then why, you're probably asking yourself, is this number ten on our list and why is soda even still on the shelf? Not that I'd challenge the ability of such large corporate power to hide such a thing but, in this case, the study slit its own throat. As one of the researchers noted, "soft drink consumption in Singapore was associated with several other adverse health behaviors such as smoking and red meat intake, which we can't accurately control for," meaning that we have no way of knowing, for sure, if soda was the culprit. Still, it doesn't hurt to know that when you drink soda it lumps you into a fairly unhealthy user group.1

      2. It's not just about calories. Calories grab headlines, but recent science is showing that diet soda users are still in the crosshairs. A 2005 study by the University of Texas Health Science Center showed that there's a 41 percent increased risk of being obese—and a 65 percent increased risk of becoming overweight during the next 7 or 8 years—for every can of diet soda a person consumes in a day. Admittedly, this one should be higher on the list, but I wanted to make sure the article-skimming crowd knew the score up front: that diet sodas are very much a part of the problem.

      3. Soda Bottle SilhouetteIt's the water . . . and a lot more. Okay, so that was a beer slogan, but soda is also made up mainly of water, and when you're slinging as much of it as they are, and you need to sling it cheap, sometimes you can't help but run into problems with your supply chain. In India, Coca-Cola® has found itself in hot water, and not the kind they thought they were purchasing rights to. Two of their factories have been closed, but one continues to run amok. According to a report in The Ecologist, "They accuse the company of over-extracting groundwater, lowering the water tables and leaving farmers and the local community unable to dig deep enough to get to vital water supplies."

        "Since the bottling plant was opened in 2000, water levels in the area have dropped six metres, and when a severe drought hit the region earlier this year the crops failed and livelihoods were destroyed."2

      4. BPA: not just for water bottles anymore. Nalgene® and other water bottle companies took the heat when the dangers of bisphenol A (BPA) were made public a couple years back. While these companies went to great lengths to save their businesses, the soda companies somehow flew under the radar and continue to use it in their products. A recent Canadian study has found that BPA exists "in the vast majority" of the soft drinks tested. Most of these were under the national limits set for toxicity, but some were not. And remember how much soda the average person consumes, meaning odds are most soda consumers are at some risk.

        "Out of 72 drinks tested, 69 were found to contain BPA at levels below what Health Canada says is the safe upper limit. However, studies in peer-reviewed science journals have indicated that even at very low doses, BPA can increase breast and ovarian cancer cell growth and the growth of some prostate cancer cells in animals."3

      5. Can convenience. As in the 1950s colloquial: can it. Speaking of the 1950s, those were the happy days when most of our soda was consumed at soda fountains, obesity was a term hardly anyone had heard of, and the most feared epidemic was one of atomically mutated insects taking over the world. Now instead of hoofing it down to the corner confectionery for one soda, we fill out trucks with pallets of shrink-wrapped cans or bottles and quaff the stuff by the six-pack. Not to mention how out of balance this ensures our diets will become, it wreaks havoc on the world around us. The bottled-water industry (which is mostly owned by the soda industry) famously uses 17 million barrels of oil a year, and the aluminum industry uses as much electricity as the entire continent of Africa. Not only that, aluminum mining accounts for a ton of toxic chemicals that is left behind for every ton of the metal produced.4

      6. Man Drinking a SodaThe Frankenfood factor. Whether you consume diet or regular soda, you're getting all of the genetically modified food you need and more, via high fructose corn syrup or aspartame. Both of these are under plenty of scientific as well as anecdotal scrutiny. Findings aren't pretty but, so far, this multibillion-dollar industry has kept these sweeteners on the shelves while alternative sweeteners meeting cost requirements are explored. Since it's almost impossible to read health headlines without finding one of these ingredients in some type of controversy, I'll just use one example:

        "The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nutrition and food safety advocacy group, called on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to review the claims, which stem from research conducted by the European Ramazzini Foundation in Italy.

        The foundation reported that rats who consumed aspartame in exceedingly large quantities were more likely to develop cancer. CSPI executive director Michael Jacobson considers this an important finding that should not be overlooked." 5

        I know, there I go again with the cancer. But some people need to be shocked in order to take action. For me, seeing the Diet Coke® and Mentos® experiment was all I needed to swear off the stuff.

      7. Foreign news cares how much soda we sell in our schools. How bad is your country's problem when the whole world is watching its daily actions? "Nearly one in three children and teenagers in the U.S. are overweight or obese and health experts say sugary drinks are part of the problem." Yep, bad. The world is well aware of the problems soda is causing and is looking to us to lead. And we certainly are trying. Are you with the program?

        "Under the voluntary guidelines, in place since 2006, full-calorie soft drinks were removed from school canteens and vending machines. Lighter drinks, including low-fat milk, diet sodas, juices, flavoured waters and teas were promoted in their place."6

        And, while great and all, it appears that no one got the memo about diet sodas.

      8. Diet? Um, that's just like your opinion, man. When it comes to soda, treat the word "diet" as a slogan. A study at Boston University's School of Medicine linked diet soda with increased risk factors for heart disease and diabetes. To be more specific, the study "found adults who drink one or more sodas a day had about a 50 percent higher risk of metabolic syndrome," which is a cluster of risk factors such as excessive fat around the waist, low levels of "good" cholesterol, high blood pressure, and other symptoms that lead to heart disease and/or diabetes. And, for those of you only concerned about how you look in the mirror, "Those who drank one or more soft drinks a day had a 31 percent greater risk of becoming obese."

      9. Soda outkills terrorists. A study out of the University of California, San Francisco, shows that soda has killed at least 6,000 Americans in the last decade.

        From ABC News: "The new analysis, presented Friday at the American Heart Association's 50th Annual Conference on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention, offers a picture of just how horrifying the damage done by excess consumption of sugary drinks can be.

        Using a computer model and data from the Framingham Heart Study, the Nurses Health Study and the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, researchers estimated that the escalating consumption between 1990 and 2000 of soda and sugar-sweetened beverages, which they abbreviated as 'SSBs,' led to 75,000 new cases of diabetes and 14,000 new cases of coronary heart disease.

        What's more, the burden of the diseases translated into a $300 million to $550 million increase in health care costs between 2000 and 2010."7

      10. It's the "real thing" . . . not exactly. Should having the number one caloric source in the world come from something that's entirely manmade be a metaphor for a dying world? It doesn't have to be this way. After all, there's nothing in soda that we need. In fact, there's nothing in soda that even comes from the earth except caffeine, and that's optional. It's a mixture of altered water (injected with carbon dioxide gas), artificial flavors (yes, "natural flavor" is artificial), artificial color, and phosphoric acid, along with its sole caloric source that is a by-product of genetically modified corn production and offers virtually no nutritional value. It's about as real as The Thing.
