Getting Ripped with Tony Horton

Tony Horton, a fitness guru and creator of the world-famous P90X workout program, conducted a community workout in Keaney Gymnasium on September 19.

Horton, who attended URI from 1976 through the spring of 1980, has established himself as one of the top fitness experts in the world, thanks to his work with Beachbody, the parent company for P90X.

The success of the brand, which has made hundreds of millions of dollars, led to Horton working with U.S. Congress and military branches on specialized fitness programs.

In early 2011, Horton released Bring It!, a fitness book that took him on a nationwide promotional tour.

Horton, who studied theater and communications at URI, took a weight lifting course here: “I never forgot the way the course was taught, and it’s why with the P90X I show each exercise with three different methods, at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels,” Horton said.
