They have started a new team at Headquarters that will be looking at more programs and be bringing more and more training to Beachbody Coaches. Here is a quick video that tells you more about P90X Qualification and Certification.

You can find all the information you need at I have also included a lot of information below. And because I would never ask anyone on my team to do something I didn’t do first, I am now officially P90X Qualified as of last week. I will be doing P90X Certification on May 12-13.
