The Insanity Workout: Just as Crazy as it Sounds!

Push-ups: Just One Part of the Insanity Workout

…But it works!

Chances are that you’ve at least heard of the Insanity workout. And if you’re still dealing with midnight feedings or struggle with insomnia, then you’ve more than likely seen the infomercials that show on various channels late at night.

They’re scary.

They show people working their booties off, dripping sweat and doing exercises that you probably don’t think you could ever do—but the truth is that everyone has to start somewhere.

The Insanity workout was developed by personal trainer Shaun T and consists of ten DVDs chocked full of nonstop intervals of power, resistance, strength, ab and core workouts and plyometric drills.

With the Insanity workout, you don’t need any special equipment or dumbbells—all you need is a television, the discs, and your own body. Oh, yeah, and some motivation and dedication doesn’t hurt, either!

The self-proclaimed “secret” to the results that this exercise regimen produces is MAX Interval Training, which means that you do long sections of maximum-intensity exercises alternating with short periods of rest (and we promise, you’ll look forward to those brief moments of rest!). With this type of interval training, you can burn an unbelievable 1,000 calories per hour.

The ten DVDs you’ll receive with the Insanity workout package range from 30 minutes to 86 minutes long and include:

  • Dig Deeper & Fit Test
  • Plyometric Cardio Circuit
  • Cardio Power & Resistance
  • Cardio Recovery
  • Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs
  • Core Cardio & Balance
  • Max Interval Circuit & Fit Test
  • Max Interval Plyo
  • Max Conditioning & Cardio Abs
  • Max Recovery

You’ll also include the Elite Nutrition Plan, the Fitness Guide that provides you with quick information you need before getting started, the Insanity Workout Calendar so you can track your progress, and free online support tools to keep you motivated to reaching your goal.

If you’re sold, then head over to the Insanity website and buy the entire package for $119.85 (plus $24.95 shipping and handling). And if you’re not quite sure, keep in mind that you have sixty days to give the program a try…if you don’t like it, you can get your money back.
