  • I am a Beachbody coach and I have done it. When I did it, I started at 130 and when I finished I was 118 lbs and had lost an additional 2" off my body. It is HARDCORE cardio. If you have knee or back issues I would not suggest Insanity at all. If you want any information about it pm me.

  • Yes, I'm also a coach, just recently finished with 15 pounds gone and 29 inches lost. I'm now doing ChaLEAN Extreme! My youtube channel has a few videos showing me working out to insanity and some reviews about. Just search FitWithMelissa on you tube to watch.

    I'm a chubby gal still on my weight loss journey, so if I can do Insanity, just about anyone (without a medical reason stopping them) can do it.

  • Get in good shape first and then try Insanity. I love Turbofire. Try a cycle of Turbo and then do Insanity
