Tony Horton

Tony Horton revolutionized health and fitness when he created the best-selling P90X fitness series, although he says becoming a fitness icon wasn’t part of a plan.

“It was a complete fluke, it was not my intention. I did not have a fitness background of any kind. Then I started learning a little more,” Horton says, “then my first celebrity client was Tom Petty. Then it blew up.” 

It’s Horton’s dedication to promoting a healthy lifestyle through exercise and proper nutrition that has transformed his fitness brand into a motivational and personal care empire. 

Born in Westerly, Horton has ties to Rhode Island. While attending the University of Rhode Island, Horton says he learned fitness was about finding a balance. 

“There was a semester at URI that changed my life and it was a weight lifting course,” Horton says.

In the interview with GoLocal LIVE Horton talked about social media’s influence on health and fitness, recovering from injury, eating vegan and nutrition as well as the importance of rest and recovery.
