A couple days ago I was talking to my younger brother. He is out of college but still talks to his friends who are still in college. He was telling me how all of them are making their plans for Spring Break this year. I had a flash back and remembered all of the good times I had on Spring Break too. I went to Panama City Beach, Florida twice. Once would of been enough, but it was cheap so we went again. Funny thing was that we saw a snow flake from our hotel the first night and decided to drive to New Orleans the next morning. Ended up being an awesome idea. We partied up and down Bourbon Street and even met the Dahm Triplets.
My best trip had to be Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I also went to Cancun, Mexico (not during Spring Break time) almost every year because my parents had a time share down there. All in all I had some great trips through out my college years.
Going back to the issue at hand. What is the one thing everybody wants to do before they go on Spring Break? That’s easy, they want to get into great shape so they can look awesome on the beach. Its the same for guys and girls. Nobody wants to show up on the beach the first day looking all flabby and out of shape. You want to look hot. This is especially true if you’re like me living in the northern states and you do not have one bit of a tan on your body.
So its January and you have bought your plane tickets to where ever you are going to go on Spring Break. Do you just go about your normal business and think you are going to get into shape or do you do something about it? Hopefully you make up your mind to do something about it. If you are a college kid I am sure you have seen the infomercial for P90X late at night. I was a college kid once too so I know you’re up watching TV late at night. P90X is a workout geared toward people who want to get into amazing shape in 90 days. The workout will focus on all of the muscles and parts of your body that will help you look good in a bathing suit. Funny how the company who makes P90X is called Beachbody.
With 90 days until you leave on your trip you could start working out now and get into great shape. I know you are probably not going on your own. Isn’t it against the law to plan Spring Break without your friends? All of my trips had 4 to 12 people on them. Why not workout with your friends who are going with you? Working out is so much more fun when you do it with a friend. More importantly there is somebody to keep tabs on you. Better yet, if they all want to get in shape with you have them all chip in for the DVDs. This way you are saving a couple dollars for when you are buying drinks on the beach.
We all know that most college’s have a gym for there students. If it is anything like mine the place was so packed that you had to wait for equipment to be open to use it. This can be discouraging to anybody trying to get into shape. Waiting in lines sucks. My favorite was there was another gym where it was strictly benches and free weights. All of the huge ripped guys hung out there. There was so much grunting going on it was almost funny.
The P90X workout is perfect for college kids or anybody as a matter of fact. You can do the entire workout in your dorm room, apartment, fraternity or sorority house. You don’t need that much space. All you need to do P90X is the P90X DVDs, a pull up bar, and resistance bands or dumbbells. The workouts are about an hour to complete and you get 12 different DVDs with different workouts. You even get a guide showing you what workouts to do on what day. This way you can keep track of what you’re doing along with what’s coming up next. Knowing you are getting an intense workout in less than an hour will save you the time it takes to get to the schools gym, change, wait in line for equipment, workout, and drive back home. Why do that when you are getting your own personal trainer. Tony Horton is 50 and is in awesome shape. If you need proof that P90X works you can check out my P90X photos and see how much my body changed.
If you are serious about getting into shape for Spring Break this year and want to look great in your bathing suit then you need to do P90X. You can buy the P90X DVDs at the Beachbody Store.
Have fun getting into shape before you go on Spring Break with P90X this year. You will enjoy your trip that much more knowing you busted your butt to look great in your bathing suit. Then when your done getting into shape, have fun and be safe on your trip!!
