Dear Boys and Girls,
I bet you've been waiting for me to write about Insanity, haven't you? To be honest, I haven't decided what I think or feel yet. I have my good days (I love it!) and bad days (Ah, it's "okayyyy").
One thing is for certain: this program is not for the undetermined. It is not for people who are not already fit.
If you are someone who tends to quit easily, then this program is not for you. Really, save your money, and get something else.
If you like to jump, sweat, and curse (um, ya!), then Insanity might be perfect for you.
Someone asked me if Insanity is more difficult than p90X. They are two different animals, both extremely challenging, but differently so. Insanity is more cardio-based, more explosive, more non-stop. You only use your body for resistance. The workouts are shorter, ranging from 30 something minutes to 54 minutes. P90X workouts are almost an hour long. You use weights. They are intense. Only Plyo-X compares to Insanity, but even that is less intense.
It's only been 7 days, so I am impatiently awaiting some results. I want to see the falling pants, the shrinking waist that the folks on the video speak of. Right now, I don't see any of that, so I am still skeptical. At the same time, I have learned to trust the process.
There is one thing that has been bugging me: the jump training has my plantaar fasciitis acting up, which is making it somewhat challenging for me to do some of the moves.
We'll see what the future holds for this body. I just finished watching the full Insanity commercial and am feeling hopeful, inspired...
Your friend in fitness,
