So you’ve heard all about the Insanity workout by Shaun T, but you’re skeptical as to whether it’s the right workout for you as a woman. I’m a guy myself, but after I went through Insanity, my wife felt compelled to try it out too, and I’m going to share her results with you today in my Insanity workout review for women! Plus I’ve done a bit of good research and I’ve found there are women all over putting up their Insanity journeys, so I’ll share a few of those as well.
Insanity Workout Review Women
First of all, I’ve done a main Insanity workout review, which you can click through that link to see (it automatically opens in a new window so you can keep this one open too). It covers most of what the program is about, but I’ll give a brief overview here in case you need refreshing.
Insanity is a 60-day workout designed by Shaun T, for men and women alike. The program is based on Shaun’s technique called ‘Maximum Interval Training’. In regular interval training, you do a short burst of high intensity activity, followed by longer periods of rest or low activity. Shaun reverses this, meaning you’ll be pushing yourself harder, for longer.
It comes with 10 DVDs with different workouts. There is a fitness test too, which you can repeat every other week to see how far you’ve come. The workouts generally last between 20 minutes and 1 hour, and you’ll need to keep it up every day (you can rest on Sundays – or do one of the ‘recovery’ exercises where Shaun goes a bit easier on you).
Check out this video from fitness trainer Rachel. She met Shaun personally to do Insanity (although of course it can be done from the comfort of your own home):
You don’t need any extra equipment for Insanity. It’s all about leveraging your own body weight. As Rachel says, it’s one of the toughest workout programs out there. When you feel like you can’t push any more, Shaun motivates you to go that final step further. It’s this that really helps you trim that fat so you can have a beautiful slim, flat waistline and body overall.
Now, Rachel is a fitness instructor so perhaps you have concerns about how fit you need to be to do the full 60-day workout. Well the answer is that you don’t need to go into the Insanity workout as fit as an instructor is. It tailors for all levels. You only need to do as much as YOU can do.
Insanity Workout Review Women – My Wife’s Results
My wife Debby saw me at home working my guts off in front of the DVD player with this guy Shaun yelling at me to keep going, and well, she was curious. I told her all about it and I guess my enthusiasm rubbed off on her. Debby is just a normal gal, she exercises a bit here and there but she’s no fitness buff. We’re both in our late twenties, so it’s a good time to get into shape!
Debby dropped down from a size 8 to a size 6 in just the first month. She lost 15 lbs and she’s loving it. She gets compliments from friends (and strangers like shop assistants and the like!) almost every day now. In fact, I’m sure she won’t mind me saying this, her confidence has really been given a boost now. I know it’s a direct effect from going through Insanity. She’s slim and beautiful to me, but inside is where the real difference has been made. She’s confident in her body, and in herself, which is wonderful.
Insanity Workout Results For Women
There’s another great video of a girl who found Insanity after she was pregnant, and low on confidence. What’s great is that she talks quite a bit about how the workout affected her, and sometimes it’s easier to convey this kind of thing over video than in a post like this. Check it out:
She shows her before and after pictures after 2:10 in the video, but don’t skip the start because it’s a great story from a nice girl that took a great deal from the Insanity workout.
So if you aren’t convinced that the Insanity workout is great for women, I don’t know what else to say. What I would say is I recommend you try it out for yourself from the official site (they have a 100% money-back guarantee and a payment plan, so there’s no risk). I’ve written before about the dangers of buying Insanity from scam sites that are run overseas in countries like China and Korea. If you find a site out there with an offer that seems too good to be true, then it probably is. You’ll end up paying for them to steal your card details, which is not a laughing matter.
Not to mention, when you buy from the official site, you also get 4 free bonuses. It’s a no-brainer, really. You get:
-Insanity Calendar (track your results and plan your future workouts)
-Nutrition Guide (great recipes for a healthy diet, which is important)
-Fitness Guide (everything you need to know to get started)
-Online Support (access a group of peers and FITNESS EXPERTS, 24/7. Invaluable)
