Beachbody has done it again. The same company that brought us the revolutionary home workout P90X now has an even more grueling and effective home workout aptly titled ‘Insanity’. While P90X promised to get you ripped and in shape in only 90 days, Insanity promises the same in only 60. What’s more, you don’t need equipment like P90X and that means no weights, no bands, and no chin-up bars. Instead, you only need a floor (preferably with a mat) and plenty of motivation. If you think you have what it takes to get in the best shape of your life with a boot camp style workout that is quick, to the point and that will test every ounce of will you’ve got, welcome to Shaun T.’s Insanity calendar.

Is Insanity Worth It?
Insanity isn’t cheap, but you certainly won’t feel ripped off. That’s because Insanity is quite possibly the best home workout ever developed. Sure, many home workouts promise to get you ripped in a short amount of time. But Insanity guarantees results, and in only sixty days! But it’s not going to be easy.
Insanity is a grueling workout that will test your mental and physical capabilities. And that’ll become apparent within the first five minutes. From the moment you push play, you’ll be running, jumping, pushing, and doing all sorts of other movements, thanks to Shaun T.’s expert direction. Can you get through it? There’s only one way to find out. And remember, the results are guaranteed, so you have nothing to lose.
What Others Are Saying
Insanity has rave reviews, and for good reason. Insanity works if you follow through with it. If you go through the reviews, you’ll hear all kinds of personal experiences. Most people went through P90X first and decided to purchase Insanity to take their body and physical fitness to the next level. Most reviewers also love that there’s no equipment needed. You simply push play and bring your ‘A-game. There’s not much more to it.
You’ll also get an idea of just how tough Insanity can be. But what’s great is to read about all the pounds and inches that have been lost thanks to this innovative workout. Sure, there are the occasional bad reviews. But it’s a good bet that the bad-review-writers just couldn’t get through the workout.
Insanity may not be for everyone. But if you want to test your will, if you want to get in the best shape of your life and you want to do it as quickly as possible, Shaun T.’s Insanity is just what the doctor ordered.
