New Workout -- One on One with Tony

When Jon Congdon and I went through the Power 90 program for the first time, we had the luxury of doing many of the workouts with Tony in his home gym. In general, Tony is who Tony is. What you see in P90X and P90X+ is the way he is in person. Although, when he's working out at home, there's something a little more intense, a little funnier, and A LOT more unpredictable.

That's why this Spring we did an experiment: What if instead of planning an entire system or routines, we simply sent Mason (director from P90X) with a camcorder to follow Tony as he does his own daily regimen?


We appropriately call these workouts Tony Horton's "One on One". It's just Tony and you working out. No fanciness, except for the soundtrack by Jason Scheff. There's less cueing because Tony is doing the entire workout, every rep. It's real Tony, doing what it takes to get (and stay) absolutely ripped.

The first release of this new series is a plyometrics-legs routine which includes using a medicine ball. I've got two words for you: "Dig. Deeper."

This one should come out in June. We'll releasing a new 1-on-1 video each month. You can get each DVD as soon as they are released by subscribing to the series and you'll also get a DVD wallet which will hold a year's worth, or you can buy them as "back issues" one at a time.

I've seen the first bunch, and they are every bit as entertaining as they are great workouts.

Carl! I can't wait. Mason previewed a bunch of "One on One"'s at Tony's Fitness Camp in DC. AWESOME! I'm so glad that they're going to be released. I like the idea of monthly releases. Something new to look forward to each month. COOL! How Fun! Thanks!

The last comment I posted was very brief and I just wanted to send my personal gratitude to you for continuing to push the envelope with these new inovative programs. You and Jon created something really special with Beachbody and thank you so much for letting me be a part of it. To allow me to share my experience with my family and friends and get them pushing play and building towards total wellness both physicall, spiritually and now finanically is really amazing. Thanks again Carl.

Carl,

Mason debuted the One on One trailers (or is it Triple O???) in DC and got everyone so stoked for it!! I'm so anxious for them to come out!! Thanks for continuing to bring the people of this lovely BB community what they want! BB truly is an innovative fitness company that actually cares about bringing the truth to the customers. So thank you for everything you and the rest of the BB peeps do!!

I am really psyched about this series. The constant innovation being offered by BB is the key to keeping one motivated. It also stresses that the key to losing weight is lifestyle changes and HARD WORK and NOT popping pills and gimmicky equipment. Thanks for keeping it real.

I am thrilled to get the new series. Just started P90X and looking forward to the challenge it will bring. Glad you keep bring it!!

Question?
Do you have any workouts for pregnant moms? I have some friend who are pregnant and would love to get into the whole Beach body program. I really enjoyed working out when I was pregnant. I did a Denise Austin Pregnancy workout, which gave me the strength and stamina to deliver all 4 of my kids. Then after the delivery I did a Cindy Crawford after baby workout.
Just thinking it would be cool to have a pregnancy and after baby series from Beachbody. Just something to thing about, if nobody else had brought it up.

Carl!

This whole "One-on-One" idea is BRILLIANT! It takes us all to that new level and makes us love Tony (and BB, of course) more. Like I told you earlier, I love it that Tony is REAL. UNPLUGGED. WORKING HIS TUSH OFF AND SWEATING BUCKETS, like the rest of us.

I love this company!!!!!!

Wow that looks like it is going to be fun. I yell at the TV all the time when he's telling people to "get lower" or "Bring It" while he's walking around checking form. It's going to be fun to watch him sweat and scream right along with you. I can't wait to check these out.
