Has anyone tried p90x. It's a pretty good functional workout.

I ground and pounded them as fine as the dust of the earth, And swept them into the gutter like dirt. You made them turn and run, I have destroyed all who hated me.-2 Samuel 22:41.
I chased my enemies and destroyed them; I did not stop until they were conquered -2 Samuel 22:38
I struck them down so they did not get up; they fell beneath my feet.-2 Samuel 22:39
If you have P90X you can sell it on craigslist for $75 and use that money to get a month or 2 at a real gym! lol!
"There are no shortcuts. The fact that a shortcut is important to you means that you are a pussy. Let me be clear here: if you'd rather take steroids than do your squats heavy and drink enough milk, then you are a ****ing Pussy. I have no time or patience for ****ing Pussies. Please tell everyone you know that I said this." Mark Rippetoe
I saw the infomercial the other day - looks like a pretty good beginer program since they incorporate all of the muscle groups and do a mix of speed and plyometric work combined with bodybuilding training. Chins are definitely good and you can't go wrong with bodyweight conditioning.
The downside is that for many people it is hard to stay motivated when you are training at home and eventually the workouts will not be challenging for you after a couple of months.
For someone without much experience who is looking for a safe basic program to get in shape I think that P90X would work well based on what they show in their advertising.
