P90X Creator, Tony Horton, and Yoga

Tony Horton is renowned as the creator and star of the P90X extreme home fitness system, but many don't know about his yoga side.  In the mid-1990's Horton discovered this form of exercise and it changed his life.  "I had heard of yoga," says Horton.  "But I thought it was silly."  Then a woman he was dating invited him to a hatha yoga class. "I had my b--- handed to me!"

Horton understood that being bad at something was a good thing.  And he began taking yoga classes regularly.  He noticed that not only did yoga improve his flexibility and range of motion, it gave him more endurance during sports, such as rock climbing and skiing.  "I found that yoga allowed me to push harder in all other aspects of fitness without getting hurt."  The practice of yoga is essential not only for one's physical well-being, but it can be used to deal with life stressors, such as being stuck in traffic or dealing with your boss.  With yoga, you are centered and connected.  FITNESS magazine

"I can do things at my age...not because I can do a bunch of pull-ups.  It's because I do yoga."  Tony Horton, age 54, (DOB July 2, 1958) Creator of P90X
