With summer a few months away, more and more people are posting fitness goals and regimes. One in particular has become more and more popular. Insanity Workout is a 60-day total body conditioning program that seems to be the solution for those who want a “bed-room/bikini ready” body, or go back to “before-baby” or “highschool” weight.
Gym memberships, personal trainers, and diet monitors can be costly. With long work hours or a demanding family, you’ll begin to resent the investment you’ve made toward your health. Why am I spending all of this money on fitness and I haven’t lost weight, worked out, etc. Sound familiar? Heard it before? Right. Although there are more pocket-sensitive ways to burn the fat, like walking, home workouts have made a comeback.
Insanity Workout was developed by workout guru, Shaun Blokker (known as Shaun T). He’s the man behind the moves in 'Hip Hop Abs'. Insanity targets different areas: abs, cardio, resistance training, etc. It also covers nutrition with detailed meal plans for long-term results. It’s been said that users -- who are committed -- noticed a 30-50 lb. weight loss. Research analyst, Cindy Walters, advises that you to find a secure, “risk-free location to purchase [the DVD]” (directly from the website). She offers consumer protection links and information here.
If you decide to step up to the challenge, there are a few things you should know before getting started. The workout is designed to burn up to 1,000 calories every hour. That's definitely high intensity! There are short breaks in between moves, so catch a breath and keep it moving. It’s broken up into portions. At first, expect to workout for about 40 minutes. By week six, you’ll begin “max interval” which is about one hour. Get more fitness and diet tips, and ways to commit to working out with “Shaun T” Blokker here.
