P90X Giveaway!


So the next giveaway in this summer's "bribe reluctant readers back to Cranky Fitness" extravaganza includes male readers and Canadians for a change! This P90X giveaway is actually a two-part affair; the second giveaway will happen in a few months when the P90X2 comes out.

But, you may be wondering, what the heck is a P90X and why should you be excited that it will have a sequel? And wait, who is last weeks New Balance giveaway winner?


Patience, Grasshopper, all shall be revealed!



Last weeks winner: The Random Number Generator chose #41, which means that commenter "Sinner Ella De'Ville" is the winner of last week's prize. Congratulations! Now be sure to email me to claim your New Balance UV protective stuff by end of day Friday August 5th. The Random Number Generator is notoriously over-eager and loves to generate randomness whenever it has the opportunity.

So what's cool about the P90X? Those of you who watch infomercials do not need remedial instructions, and some of us have heard tell of it through blogs, forums, and other online gatherings of hard-core fitness enthusiasts. But for the unitiated, it's a set of 12 DVD's developed by Tony Horton that comprises a 90 day program to get you fit, fast.  From what I've heard, this series will kick your ass.  If you're wanting to transform yourself into a fierce, buffed, insanely-well-conditioned superhuman and have a fair amount of self-discipline, this is supposed to be pretty darn helpful.

Have I tried it myself? Not yet!  I may be reviewing the new P90X2 when it comes out. Tony's program uses the concept of "muscle confusion," which sounds promising in my case. I figure if my brain is so easily bewildered, my muscles probably stand a fair chance of getting confused too, and if that means better fitness, then bring it on! (Although, goodness, watching the new P90X2 video I have to confess it looks intense! Fingers crossed that this Crab has what it takes to hurl herself around a room like the hardbody fitness models do so enthusiastically.  I'm thinking caffeine may have to play a large part in pre-workout planning.)

Now on to the P90X giveaway! To enter, just leave a comment; winner will be selected by the Random Number Generator.  Then check back next Wednesday the 10th to see if you won; you'll only have until Friday Aug 12th to claim your prize or the RNG will pick a new winner.  And you'll need a US or Canadian mailing address to receive the DVD set.

Good luck!

  1. Crabby, much as I love winning stuff, there's no point in entering me in this as I won't use it.
    So, then, why did I leave a comment?
    Because it's Cranky Fitness, and I damned well felt like it.

  4. I've heard so much about the P90X program. I would have been too scared to try it before but now I think I could handle it without falling on the floor. Maybe it would be just what I need to lose those last few stubborn pounds and get to my goal (FINALLY!).

  7. K, so in my excitement, I failed to post about the actual article. #1, that dude is SUPER EFFIN CREEPY, but damn I would love to kill myself with some of those workouts. #2, I hear that this is the most hardcore at home workout you can get so I'm all about taking a stab at it, #3, I just wanna say that your other articles for non-giveaways are hilarious, except when they're all informative and crap. lol

  9. I don't know whether I'm scared of this workout or inspired by it. But I do figure my muscles will be easily confused, so maybe it's worth a try. :)

  15. I've got to give it to you. This one's particularly excellent. Nice bribery.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've heard great things about this workout package and would love to give it a try! Thanks for the chance :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've heard many good things about it. Good luck, everyone! :D

  18. I have been waffling on trying this forever, but have never managed to scrape up the courage to go for it. If I won this contest, I'd HAVE to, right?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Pick me, pick me! I would LOVE to try this as I've heard great things about it. It's hard but produces great results!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've been thinking about stealing a friends P90X to give it a go. So Mr Random Number, show me some love! (Although hearing a P90X2 is coming...maybe the plain jane P90X will become reasonably priced on the 2ndary market. Maybe.)

    You rock Crabby!

  21. I tried AbRipper X and it almost killed me. I could definitely go for some more of that!

  22. "I figure if my brain is so easily bewildered, my muscles probably stand a fair chance of getting confused too, and if that means better fitness, then bring it on!"
    Yeah - what you said! Have also always wanted to try this. And/or sell it later on Craigslist - is that bad?

    ReplyDelete
  23. That video looks scary! No point entering me, like Leah, I just wanted to comment, 'cause I could.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sign me up for this puppy! Pick me, pick me, RNG!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I really need to get into shape, so this would help a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  26. If there's one thing I love to do in life, it's trying to complete fitness regimes that make me feel like an unfit pansy sipping on a bottle of weak sauce. In other words, gimme gimme!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am scared of this workout, but in a good way. Do want!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Just found Cranky Fitness and love it! Reading thru past posts and LMAO!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have wanted to try this forever but am too cheap to buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This has always looked interesting (in the same way bungee jumping does) but I'm way to cheap to experiment...but if you're just GIVING it away, I'll bite. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Another abstention. The chances of my easily confused muscles following instructions from someone who is not really there? Minuscule.

  38. My tennis partner did this and changed before my eyes. He got super cut, shed a few pounds, and WOW! I will use this if I am lucky enough to win it.
    I am also working my way from zero to one pull-up...maybe this'll help.

    ReplyDelete
  39. C'mon, Random Number Generator! I need something to kick my ass back on the training wagon.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The P90X sounds frightening, but strangely exciting! Especially the part about muscle confusion - The rest of me is confused...why not my muscles, too?

    ReplyDelete

  48. Canadian mailing address - check!

    I keep looking at the p90x set on amazon and then deciding it's too expensive. But if the DVDs landed in my mailbox, I would totally give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
