Insanity Review

INSANITY 60-Day Total-Body Conditioning Program

Transform your body in 60 days with the most intense workout program ever put on DVD. Shaun T will push you past your limits to get the leanest, hardest body you’ve ever had.

My Insanity Review:

I wanted to write an Insanity review because of all the buzz it has been getting in the P90X community.  I have been doing P90X for over a year now and when Insanity first came out I was skeptical that it could deliver the same results.  As it turned out Insanity is one of, if not the toughest, workout ever put on dvd.

I got my first taste of Insanity when Beachbody sent me a preview disc with my latest One on One with Tony Horton video.  It was called Plyometic Cardio Circuit.  Thinking that it couldn’t be as difficult as Plyo X on P90X, I popped the dvd in the day I got it.  What followed was an ass kicking Insanity style.  Not only was I completely depleted when I finished but I immediately thought that it was tougher than the dreaded Plyo X.  Blasphemy, I know.

I had customers and coaches of mine try it as soon as it came out.  Every single one said it was the hardest workout they have ever tried.  Some couldn’t hang, but those that did got crazy results.  If you are looking to burn body fat and get cut up then this program could be for you.  The concept is high intensity interval training.  Going your hardest as long as you can.  But instead of taking long periods of rest, Insanity turns it on it’s head, and gives you long bursts of effort with short rest periods in between.  It’s mostly cardio based but has some great Core, balance and resistance moves.  The best part is, no weights or equipment is required.  All you need is a towel, lots of water, and the ability to push yourself to your limit.  What results is a 60 day program that gets you in peak physical shape.  If you can take the Insanity challenge and make it to the end than it is something to proud of.

During my first Insanity workout I burned 800 calories in 40 mins.  As you progress through you can easily burn 1000 calories in an hour.  Your not going to find that in any other program out there.  Insanity comes with a really nice looking dvd holder that fits easily in a book shelf.  They also give you an elite nutrition guide, and a calendar.  Both are essential for staying on track and getting the results your after.

I have to warn you though that Insanity is a high impact, no holds barred program.  If you have any issues with high heart rates, knee, joint or back pain, then you might want to try something else.  This program chews you up and spits you out.  But if you want a challenge there is nothing better.  INSANITY is an extreme and physically demanding workout. This is NOT for beginners or individuals with any medical condition that may be compromised by extreme cardio and strength exercise. Consult your physician and read the enclosed materials before beginning the program.

Hey, Coach Sean, I want to include a P90X/ Insanity Hybrid workout regimen. What schedule would you recommend. I have already been doing P90X for a while now--about three rounds, but have not attempted Insanity yet. If you have done a hybrid, what was your schedule like?

I would agree, Insanity is much harder than P90X! I did a full 60 day round this past winter and noticed changes in my body I never though possible. Great review Sean!

@jacob: Yes you can gain muscle with this program but it's mostly a fat burning, cardio endurance style program. 60 days of boot camp style cardio with body weight exercises only. I am a P90X guy so I am a little bias toward P90X. P90x involves resistance training (weight lefting), Plyometrics, cardio and yoga. You will need a pull up bar and weights/resistance bands for P90X. Insanity just needs the floor ;). So there are pros and cons to each and both are GREAT workouts. It depends what your main goals and your preferred style of training is. Does that help ?
