P90X Founder Tony Horton Shares How To Gain Strength & Build Muscle At Any Age

ABOUT THE EPISODE Based on personal preference, some people rely on just one or two physical routines for fitness. For example, they love their walks, so they stick to walking. Others, although, go diverse because they love what it does to their bodies on multiple levels. For those who stick with the latter—continue, 'because the outcome will always be 10x more than whoever just keeps doing the same thing over and over again.' In this episode of The Fit Mess, Tony Horton, the master behind the highly-esteemed P90X, talks about the impacts of coaching and having the right company, his take on supplements, and the reason why some people just can't seem to improve their habits and routines.

Ask Yourself What Your Purpose Is — Cause It May Suck

When the topic of "purpose" was brought up during the interview, Tony said his revolves around 'feeling good, having great energy, and generating enthusiasm in life.' And that's what pushed him to become the Tony Horton he is today, the creator of the famous P90X, among other popular fitness programs, a best-selling author, and a world-class motivational speaker. To quote him, Tony said, "your purpose [in life] needs to be substantial enough!"

People all have their own purpose and why in life individually on the basic level. But if that's the case, with Tony as an example, how come others still find it excruciating to implement changes? For Tony, aside from lacking prioritization, it may also be due to poor reasoning behind what you're doing. In life, we pay for necessities every day, go to work, and drive hours just to go home. All of those we do faultlessly for mere survival. But what are you doing to live?
