Too many people like to think about putting their health and fitness on the priority list AFTER the holidays. I often think that the tradition of New Year’s Resolutions is an awful one, since it gives us an excuse to postpone getting healthy till after all the bad eating habits have run their course, and then make of what should be a marathon a sprint as people try to undo all the damage one over the Fall and Winter months in but a few weeks. So don’t be like everybody else: get in shape today!
The Insanity Workout is billed as an extreme workout. It's meant to challenge even the most conditioned of top level athletes, meant to push people who are already incredibly fit and healthy to new extremes. The videos show terribly athletic people collapsing in pools of sweat as Shaun T urges them to go just a little further. Does this mean that the Insanity Workout is for nobody but the physical elite? Can somebody climb off the couch and give it a shot? The answer is simple: anybody can do Insanity. Read on to see how.
Everybody knows the Insanity Workout is hard. It's billed as such, says it right on the box, warns you that this is an extreme workout, and that it shouldn't be jumped into lightly. At first people revel in this intensity, love with a masochistic thrill how brutal it is. They recount war stories about each workout, compare just how bruised and sore they are. The more punishment they receive the more they feel they're earning a whole new body, and as such they come to almost crave that intensity, that burn, the sting of sweat running into their eyes as they lie on the floor, panting for breath. But that only lasts for a couple of weeks before that love for pain becomes resentment, complaints, a struggle to keep going, and then they quit. Why? Why the change of heart? Why does that intensity at first thrill and then kill? Why is the Insanity Workout such hard work?
INSANITY has exploded into the fitness world. Everybody is trying it out, trying to get ripped, trying to make it through those sixty days. Nobody can make 15 minute's worth of exercise as excruciating and painful and amazingly awesome as Shaun T, and the number of people trying INSANITY can attest to that. But what about the man himself? Does Shaun T really motivate people to get moving, or is he just a guy with some fancy moves and an annoying attitude? If you're going to be spending an hour a day with him, it helps if he doesn't drive you crazy. So--in this post we'll take a look at Shaun T, and ask--does he have the goods?
