Insanity is the first real workout program I got involved with a few year back when I was in college. It is literally an insane workout and if you can make it through the entire thing, I am truly in awe of you.
While doing Insanity I always ended up drenched from head to toe (Which isn’t hard for me as you will see in future pictures. I sweat more than most humans…I know I know…gross). Anyways, Insanity will get you results, but it will also kill your joints. 90% of the workouts include some sort of jumping movement.
The workouts are 40-60 (ish) minutes long and typically 3 or 4 sets of 4 exercises each lasting about 45-60 seconds each. You may be thinking, oh I can do anything for 45-60 seconds…but you would be wrong…unless you are super human…or Shaun T. The great thing about Insanity is that there is no equipment required except for your own body and probably a nice large sweat towel.
What I love about the Beachbody programs is most of them come with a meal plan and can all be streamed on your phone or laptop at home. I love coming home and doing the workouts while prepping dinner or doing chores because I always need a longer break than is given between reps. If you are the self-disciplines type who will turn on the workout day after day then I highly recommend Beachbody, but if you are the type that needs a little more accountability, maybe one of the gyms or programs I will be talking about in later blog posts will be better suited for you.
Right now Beachbody is offering their All-Access Pass which includes EVERY Beachbody workout (600+ workouts) and all of the meal plans for 3-months for $39 OR the 12-month Challenge Pack which includes all of the workouts and meal plans for an entire year for $160 plus a 30-day supply of Shakeology.
Shakeology is known as your “daily dose of dense nutrition” – kind of like a protein shake on steroids, but not actually steroids. There are many testimonials on how it changed peoples lives but I have to say I probably wouldn’t order it again, but what do I know?! More than anything, the price was just a huge turn off for me. It is $130 per month with a small discount if you are a Beachbody Coach or if you have it set to a subscription instead of just ordering it one month at a time. They do offer vegan options too and to be honest I enjoyed the taste of the vegan chocolate much better than the regular even though I am not vegan.
