Shaun T's Insanity workout..does it work?

Has anyone ever tried the Insanity workout that is on tv? I want to try it and just curious if anyone ever has or knows of any other really good workout videos. I used to do classes at the gym and loved them now I live too far from a gym to do this.

  • I lost 12 lbs and 2" when I did it. I started at 130 lbs and when it was over 60 days later, I was 118 lbs and a size 0. I've since lost another 8 and gotten to my goal weight.

    It is NOT for beginners. I am a runner and it kicks my tail every time I do it. I LOVE it! It is the BEST workout I've ever done...hands down.

  • My husband does Insanity and he has a very nice body, it definitely works. I feel bad for him though.. its a crazy work out! I would NEVER be able to keep up! Good luck!

  • Try Turbo Jam if you want something that has "beginner" options, but that's effective and fun.

  • It's very intense and not for beginners. If you're already in pretty good shape and looking for a butt-kicking challenge, then it may be the right workout for you. But just like any super-vigorous workout, yes you will lose weight if you are consistent.

  • So...what do you guys suggest for beginner that will be as effective? I mean I have worked out but it's been a while.
