Tony Horton is an exercise instructor, fitness guru, and creator of the P90X fitness program. For Tony, boredom is the number one enemy in everyone’s quest for a healthier body. So, he created the P90X program.
More than 3 million dedicated followers have made the P90X program one of the most popular home workout DVDs available today. It combines 12 different workouts to transform your body from regular to ripped in as little as 90 days. It also has a diet and eating plan that will satisfy your energy needs through tasty and healthy meals. Watch this video of Tony and the P90X program.
Tony was born in Rhode Island on July 2, 1958, and graduated from the University of Rhode Island. In 1980, he moved to the other side of the country in hopes of pursuing an acting career in Los Angeles. Once he got settled in LA, Tony joined the World Gym in Venice, California. He did not want to bulk up and end up looking like a non-flexible bodybuilder, so he focused on exercises that would make him faster, more flexible, and more balanced, all things that the P90X focuses on today.
Tony first established his own business as a personal trainer, ASH Fitness, in the early 1980s. Some of his clients include Billy Idol, Usher Raymond, and Bruce Springsteen. In addition to working privately with celebrities, Tony has created many workout plans for various health and fitness magazines, such as this one he created for Women’s Health.
Tony has also written his own book, Bring It! The Revolutionary Fitness Plan for All Levels That Burns Fat, Builds Muscle, and Shreds Inches. In his book, Tony encourages his followers to “Do Your Best and Forget the Rest.” It seems like everyone, including celebrities like Pink, Sheryl Crow, and Demi Moore, are following this advice and jumping on Tony’s fitness bandwagon.
