Supreme 90 Day and P90X: There’s a Difference

You know how it is with a good idea in fitness. Once someone has it and it does well on the market, before you know it there are similar-sounding programs that come on the scene to take advantage — or improve upon what was already a good idea. We’ve gotten a lot of questions on the new Supreme 90 Day program lately and how it compares to P90X, so we wanted to give you a solid break down of how they’re similar and how they’re not.

Supreme 90 and P90X Similarities

  • Both programs take 90 days to complete.
  • Both feature highly intense interval workouts that cycle over the course of the program to avoid plateauing and to keep weight-loss and results coming.
  • Both allow you to work out in your home with workout DVDs.
  • Both primarily focus on exercise.
  • Both promise amazing, body-changing results.

Supreme 90 and P90X Differences

  • Supreme 90 includes 10 different workouts while P90X provides 12.
  • Supreme 90 has a general nutrition guide. P90X has a three-phase guided eating plan that is much more detailed.
  • Supreme 90 is considerably more affordable than P90X.
  • P90X has been on the market longer than Supreme 90.
  • Supreme 90 is instructed by Tom Holland, while P90X is instructed by Tony Horton.

Overall, the two programs are extremely similar but do have some major differences. If getting fit is your only goal and you’re strapped for cash, you may want to try Supreme 90. If you’re looking to get fit, eat better and drop some pounds, P90X is a more complete program. However, be warned that both programs are intense, are not designed for those with a lot of weight to lose, and are not for the faint of workout heart!

Alicia - I think by "a lot of weight to lose" they weren't referring to 30 pounds. I think it was referring to numbers MUCH higher than 30. Although I still do agree that people with a lot of weight to lose can still use the program. They just need to take it very slow and accept the fact that they won't be able to keep up with very much of it (but will gradually keep up with more and more of it).

I have to say that I disagree with the comment in this article that says the supreme 90 day workout is not for someone with alot of weight to lose. I have about 30 pounds to lose and I have been doing the supreme 90 day workout for 3 weeks now and I find that as I workout each day it gets easier and easier. It does push you though. If you want to start out with an intense workout, but not as intense as p90x, then go for the supreme 90 day workout. I paid $20 for it at Dollar General. It does kick butt, but I do recommend that if you are faint of heart, then speak to your doctor first. Oh and it does call for dumb bells and a stability ball, but you can substitute on both. If you are just starting out, then I would hold off on both until you get used to the workouts. However I am in week 3 of supreme 90 day and I substitute other things in place of the stability ball. Good luck to all!! Remember if you don't start now, a months from now you will wish you had started today.

I also have Supreme 90 day and absolutely love it! Did my own review of it on my as seen on tv product website. It is by far one of the best workout programs me and my wife have ever done together!

I have purchased Supreme 90 and believe you me. It's intense each time I do it and I'm pretty in shape. I'm 48 years old and I can still hang with them and keep up with. But I highly recommend supreme 90, it's more bang for the buck. You have to be consistant to get the results and to follow the eating plan. It trains you on how to eat the proper food and diet.

I have tried them both and the Steel-Bow Sit-at-Home Fitness routine beats them both for simplicity and results. Both of the above programs warn about being fit to perform them. The Sit-at-Home program allows anyone to start and progress to excellent fitness... all in 90 days.
