Power 90 Review - 5 Things You Need to Know


Give me two minutes of your time and I’ll tell you whether Power 90 actually works. We took the time to create a comprehensive review, focusing closely on the ingredients, customer-service quality, side effects and scientific studies. Then we took a good look at various user comments from all over the internet. Finally, we narrowed down all of the information we collected to give you the facts you need to make an informed decision.

What is Power 90?

To begin with, Power 90 is a 90-day exercise program on DVD, meal plan, and support network. The company that promotes it also has dietary supplements and meal replacement drinks that are heavily marketed as beneficial accessories.

Power 90 is made and promoted by Beachbody. The trainer who leads the workouts is Tony Horton. This is an American corporation that was founded in 1998. The company uses direct response infomercials, multi-level marketing, and online presence to promote fitness and weight-loss DVDs, supplements, and accessories. We like that the company has many popular product lines, but read on…

Difficulty – “I Can’t Do That!”

Our first concern is the physical complexity of the P90 workout program. The manufacturer suggests new users consult their healthcare provider before the begin the exercise regimen. According to our Research Editor, “When a new DVD comes out, excited dieters rush to buy it. However, if it is too hard, it could end up on the shelf collecting dust.”

According to one unhappy consumer, “I was super excited to begin working out but I only lasted through half of the first routine before I was in too much pain to continue.”

Another worried, “My doctor told me I shouldn’t start with this program because of my current medical conditions. I wish there had been more warnings before I made the purchase.”

Others expected to be challenged and weren’t overly concerned. One said, “It kicked my butt in a good way.”

Another explained, “I needed something harder than walking a couple of miles each afternoon so I gave this a try. It was more difficult but the results were awesome!”

Cost – “It’s How Much?”

The DVDs cost just under $75 without any of the additional supplements or meal replacement shakes the company promotes. While the program can be used repeatedly, the cost investment is steep for a product that has been out for several years.

One consumer said, “I can’t believe there is a company that wants me to pay that much for videos. They’ve been out for more than a decade!”

Another said, “I could see paying that for one of the new versions of the workout but asking that much money for something that outdated is ridiculous.”

Others believed the longevity of the program to be a benefit and felt the cost was fair. “You get three months of workouts for that price plus some other stuff. If it wasn’t good they wouldn’t still be selling it.”

Another happy dieter said, “I borrowed my friend’s old DVD and really liked it. I was happy I was still able to purchase my own copy.”

According to our research, if a program is too difficult or if the cost is perceived as being too high, dieters may not see any long-term results. If the P90 workout price is just too steep, that could be a deal breaker.

The Science – “Strong Clinical Support?”

At DietSpotlight, we are concerned with the science behind the claims. The Power 90 workout says it will help you lose weight and build muscle by following a robust exercise plan most days of the week. Research indicates that increased physical activity will have these types of benefits. However, there is very little data specific to this program available.

The Bottom Line – Does Power 90 Work?

What’s the real deal with Power 90? It is a popular exercise DVD series that has some truly impressive before and after testimonials. However, the program itself may be too difficult for some consumers who are out of shape or just beginning. We’re also concerned that the P90 workout could cost too much and that leaves us with reservations about recommending it.

If the time has come to jump start your metabolism you may want to consider checking out a supplement to support your weight-loss journey. Look for one that’s backed by scientific research and a knowledgeable customer service department. It’s also a great idea to find one that’s affordable.

Among the products we’ve seen this year, one of the best is called Dietspotlight Burn. The formula is a combination of four key ingredients, which have been shown in documented clinical research to help increase fat loss and enhance metabolism. We didn’t find any negative user reviews online but we did find many happy customers sharing their great results.

The makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so confident in their product that they’re offering a  Special Trial Offer, which many of our readers have taken advantage of.

What You Should Know

Tony Horton's Power 90 Boot Camp is an exercise program put forth by celebrity trainer Tony Horton, and is available for purchase at www.beachbody.com. When purchased, the program consists of six workouts and a sculpting band. The training program is supposed to target specific areas of the body for maximum fat burning and toning results in just 30 minutes per day. Power 90 has a 90-day money back guarantee. Those who order the program also receive a program guide, calendar and online access to help track progress. There are also bonus gifts included, such as an accelerated fat burning workout, a meal plan, supplements and a measuring tape.


Sculpting band and workout videos.

Product Features

The Power 90 training workouts include four different sculpting workouts, four different cardio workouts, and two workouts that specifically target the abdominal muscles. The sculpting workouts are designed to tone, firm and strengthen, while the cardio workouts are supposed to burn fat at an accelerated rate. The ab workouts are two six-minute routines that focus on delivering a flat, six-pack stomach. The combined routines are said to burn fat and trim inches off the waistline within 90 days. The user can track their progress and obtain support on the website. The supplements are said to naturally enhance weight loss and muscle toning.


  • The workout routines are effective if done as directed. Most users have seen results of improved muscle tone and weight loss.
  • The exercise contributes to overall improved health as well as improved appearance.


  • The Power 90 videos are boring, with outdated music, monotonous routines and an annoying person leading the workout. This makes the program very hard to stick with.
  • Many people are wary of weight loss supplements, so they do not use the ones included in Power 90.
  • The workouts are supposed to be done six-days a week, which many people who buy fitness videos do not have time to do.
  • Power 90 does not sufficiently emphasize healthy eating habits in conjunction with exercise, which may minimize the long-term benefits of the program.


Tony Horton's Power 90 Boot Camp is an effective workout regimen. If the program is followed correctly and consistently, the user will burn fat and build muscle, resulting in successful weight loss and improved health. Most consumers who have commented on the program are satisfied with the results, but many of them also complain that the workouts themselves are not enjoyable. Power 90 is available online, and is reasonably priced at $59.85 plus $12.95 shipping and handling. As with any workout program, the user must be committed and motivated, and also must follow a healthy diet.

  • Going to start the product soon.

    Im about to start the program, and I was wondering if you have to have 1500 calories a day? Also, do you have to follow the die? Cant you just eat healthy, smaller portions and have no carbs at night?

  •  Just got the product

    I just got the dvd’s today. Is it better to exercise in the morning or night? I’d prefer the morning but considering how intense it is, I don’t know if it’s a good idea.

    HI Scott,I just discovered your Trouble in Mind video yobuute. Beautiful. I love it. Is it possible to get just the tab for this tune? I am lam having a hard time finding instruction for flatpicking the blues. Seems most of the songs taught for flatpickers are fiddle tunes and bluegrass. Any suggestions?Thanks,Stuart

  •  Changed our lives
    mj (Verified User)

    Wife and I did Tonys P90 back in 2002 and were VERY pleased with the results! Nothing fancy, just using our own body weight to act as resistance and it just plain worked. I figured, I could do anything for only 90 days and I did and it worked. We did not do the supplements, but did go on the 40-30-30 eating regime. Simple foods balanced and eating just regular stuff, but in sensible portions and eliminated the junk foods. Were we sore at first? Did it take some commitment of time (though only 30 to 45 mins a day)? All yes. It just works. Is simple, takes a little time. But in 90 days IT WILL CHANGE YOU. We were very pleased, got good results and if you will try and give it only 90 days. No more, not less. It will for sure work. Dont worry about the supplements, just do the routines. Net, net. It works. No, we dont do the routines anymore after some ten years. Other than. We do the 200 abs every M W F, and do 40 push ups each day. So, yes it works, was kinda fun after the initial hurts in the first two weeks, and it will somewhat change how you feel about yourself. Give it only 90 days, you will see that it is no miracle, just plain works so you can lose weight, gain strength and body tone and cardio workout. My only regret. We did not join Tony in Hawaii for a group workout week. Please remember, it is not magic, it just plain uses your own body to enable you to exercise well. It works! Be well and give yourself 90 days. That really is all it takes. Thank you Tony. Wherever you are. You WERE HONEST. It did work.

  •  Do it and see results
    eddie (Verified User)

    I went from 220 to 140 doing P90, there’s nothing to it but to do it. Eat right and you will deffinetly see results

  •  I love Power 90
    Anonymous (Verified User)

    I love Power 90! Of all the exercise programs I have tried this is the one I can stick to. I don’t find it boring or outdated. As to my results, so far I have lost 18 lbs in less than a month, just started phase 3-4, and have visibly flatter stomach and tonned arms and legs. I recommend this program to anyone.

  • P90 sounds less appealing
    Anonymous (Verified User)

    I have checked out PX80 and P90. I am female, 58, 180 lbs and 5’2. Most for PX80 are male and most are very young. P90 sounds less appealing. What’s likelyhood that I can achieve results moderating the PX90. They say growing old is manditory but growing up is not. Self analysis is that I am fat and weak.

  • Jacqui

    Try Evox Protein Shake vanilla or strawberry only – tastes good and seems to fill you up!

  •  Able to lose weight without dieting
    Jacqui (Verified User)

    P90X works! I am 44yrs old and lost 4″ around my waist without dieting. This programme automatically makes you eat less (in conjunction with Evoxin) 😉 Wow Tony!!!

  • Enjoyed the first 3 weeks
    Regis (Verified User)

    I bought this through the website about 60 days ago with the best of intentions and enjoyed the first 3 weeks of it. Yes, the music and graphics are horribly outdated and Tony himself can be annoying at times. But I still enjoyed the workout. But even with all the emphasis on proper form in the Sculpting segment, my husband (a trainer) was horrified to see the force of movement and range of motion we were to strive for. Long story short, one of the movements was too much and now I have a rotator cuff injury, which means no more P90. I have to think that after healing, I’ll probably not go back to the program and will work in my strength in a way that’s less forceful.

  •  Love doing the workout and so effective
    Emily (Verified User)

    I started doing P90X a month ago and I’ve already lost 6 lbs I love this workout I don’t find it boring and I love how cheesey Tony is. If you have the time to watch an hour of tv a day you have time to do this workout.

  •  Do some work out and drink milk

    So I’ve just started doing the workouts yesterday. My step mom had the DVD’s and I was bored. I’m 150 pounds and 5′-3″. I’m not overly fat or anything, but I want to shed about 5 inches in my belly (being the main part I want). I went to sleep with my knees hurting a bit, and now woke up to feel my abs worked aswell as my thighs! I assume this is good news that it is working. Oh and age old trick my grandpa taught me that I’m using today is that after a work out you should drink 1-2 cups of milk, it will make sure your joints don’t get soar. I’ll probably be back within a few days for an update! Wish me luck 😀

  •  The workouts are simple and easy
    Cayci (Verified User)

    I do not want to eat healthy or workout lol, that’s the honest truth. However, I am on day 4 of this and it’s not hard to make myself press play! The workouts are simple and easy, I’m not dead when I’m done. That means that I can just keep stepping it up everyday. Yes, Horton can be annoying and kinda pervy but I’d rather listen to him that some freak show cheerleader screaming in my face. I like it and again this is coming from someone who just wants to watch movies and nap most of the day!

    • Stacey

      Cayci, you just made me laugh! So, do you have to do 2 dvd’s a day = 1hour of workouts or does the Power 90 have you do 1 dvd/day? Thanks!

      • Akash

        Cardio and abs is about 40 minutes (36 minutes Cardio and 4 minutes of Abs) and Sculpt is about 30 minutes. You do Cardio and Abs or Sculpt on each day with one day off each week.

  •  it would probably be best for me to start with the Power 90 first.
    Colby C.

    I just ordered it through the website and am anticipating for it to finally arrive! I chose this one after researching the P90X and finding out that it would probably be best for me to start with the Power 90 first. Wish me luck!

    • leeland

      Good luck Colby. You made a wise decision as most of us on here. We also did alot of research first and i could not find a bad review. like I said in mind i got bigtime results doing it 80% my next round is 100%. I have never felt better and what is fun is you and all your coworkers will see results in 30 days. Stay with it. It may seem hard at first but stick withj it and everyday,week you will improve. Awesome program.

  •  I started at 225 pounds and am now down to 213
    the joey (Verified User)

    UM I having been doing power 90 for 2 weeks (I started first with the fat burning 6 day workout). Eating around 1200 – 1300 calories a day. Never missed a days workout. I started at 225 pounds and am now down to 213 – in 18 days. I have lost 4 inches off my waist, few off my hips, etc. arms have gotten a little bigger. I haven’t worked out since 1996. I expect to easily get down to 190lbs and be all muscle. No suppliments other than GNS whey protein.

    • Crsytal

      What is the fat burning 6 day workout?

    • Crystal

      what is the fat burning 6 day workout?

      • Lindsey

        The fat burning 6 day workout is an additional dvd that comes with a 6 day fat burning meal plan. It came with the power 90 I ordered 2 weeks ago. I am on day 4 of power 90. I LOVE it… well.. I love it after I do it 🙂 I have never been able to do pushups the right way, but after 3 days I can do 8! I haven’t done the fat burning dvd yet, but the meal plan has been useful.

  • I have lost 2inches off my waist
    Paula (Verified User)

    This program works. I have lost 2 inches off each thigh, 2 inches off my waist. Only lost 8 pounds in 90 days but clothes are getting TOO big. Do it and it will work.

    • SHERRY

      DI love reading everyone”s comments it makes it easier to push play every day. i have alot to lose and hope at the end of my 90 days my stomach is alot flatter and then start another round. has anyone done 2 rounds and seen amazing results?

  •  Power 90 does work 100%

    Power 90 does work! I have given it 100% and have lost 28 lbs in 45 days. I fully expect to meet my goal of 50 lbs in 45 more days atthe end of the 90 day fitness program. It takes a lot of commitment but if you do the full workout 6 days a week 30-40min a day it doeas work!

    • Nadzter

      Did u use the slimming supplement too?
