As a part of my Insanity Review, I think it is only fair for you to know I have not done a total 60 days with Insanity. There are a lot of reasons for that. I was excited and a little fearful when it came out. I have done all of the DVDs and I’ve done over 30 days with it when I started incorporating other programs in with it. So, I feel like I can write a decent Insanity Review because of that. I knew I was in good shape because I had been doing P90X and some other Beachbody Programs. Insanity was totally different than anything else Beachbody had ever produced. In fact, it was totally different than anything ANYBODY had ever put out. People know about Interval Training. Most people, when they go to a gym or go out for a run, go at a constant pace. They get on the treadmill or elliptical or go out and run and they never change their routine or their pace. The heart rate goes up and stays there. With Interval Training, most programs go at a slow pace with short bursts of intensity. Insanity stands that on it’s head and goes for long periods of intensity with short rest periods. Shaun T. really pulled out all the stops with this program. The first set of warmup exercises were all I needed to know I was in for a tough ride. The fit test showed me that even though I was in shape, this was a different program I was getting involved with and I knew I was going to love it. I had to stop and take a break during the first 10 minutes. I remember going to the pool and talking to one of the lifeguards and I remember telling him, if he can find anybody he knows and they will come to my house and we put in the first DVD, if they can hang with it and do all of the reps at the speed they do it on the DVD, I will give them $1,000. It was that hard. There is no way you can do that at the pace they go unless you have been doing this particular program for awhile. After I did the first day of Insanity, I couldn’t stand on my tip toes for 3 days. My calves got burnt UP. So, for my Insanity Review, I can simply tell you, if you want to get a great workout in and have fun and sweat and do something REAL, do Insanity. It’s crazy fun.

Insanity Review – Who Should Do It
As a part of this Insanity Review, you should know it is high intensity and high impact. If you have heart problems, back or knee problems or anything that will cause further injury or hurt you if you are jumping, Insanity may not be for you. Consult your physician if you have any doubts. As always, it can be modified. I said at the beginning of this Insanity Review that I have never done a full 60 days of Insanity. The reason is because about 30 days in, my knees start to bother me so, I listen to my body and back off. I’m a little older at 47 than some of the people who get after it and do Insanity full speed. I have also not been kind to my knees in the past with some of the activities I did in my younger years from football to skiing to volleyball. So, my knees start to bother me with all of the impact. So, I back it down and do something else and then come back to it as a hybrid workout program where I incorporate the Insanity workouts with other things I’m doing. I love Insanity but my body isn’t cut out to be a cheetah. I’m built more like a Rhino so Body Beast has been GREAT for me. I do still love Insanity though. That is why I wanted to write an Insanity Review. My recommendation for you is, if you are interested in getting it, we have a 30-day money back guarantee and coupled with the P90X Recovery Drink and Shakeology, you have everything you need to be successful. And of course, I will be your Coach so how can you go wrong. So that’s my Insanity Review. Contact me and let’s get you moving on a new you with Insanity!!
