It's true-- I took the plunge and started Insanity last week!
After my husband left, I was feeling horrible about myself and I was truly lacking the motivation to go to the gym; let alone get off the couch.
However, life has to go on and so do my fitness goals, so I decided to try something I had been curious about for a very long time.
Being a future fitness professional, I never "take someones word" when it comes to workout programs, vitamins, diets etc. etc. Results are subjective to the person and everyone is different , so, although I have never been fond of following a 30, 60 or 90 day workout dvd, I decided that I can't knock Insanity until I've tried it!
Also, it should be made clear that I am not in any way affiliated with Beachbody! I'm just a future personal trainer that wants to see what all the hype is about.
So I decided to write this post after I had completed week 1. Well here I am, and I can honestly say, Insanity is insane... but I love it! Here's why I love it, compared to other workout programs I have tried (which is a lot):
- Insanity Requires no extra equipment
- Insanity focuses on lots of cardio, as well as muscle sculpting
- You never do the same workout 2 days in a row
- Every 2 weeks you do a 'fit-test' to see how much progress you are making
After 5 days I already feel like each workout is getting easier and easier. Along with doing Insanity 6 out of 7 days a week, I am also running 4-5 days a week, and doing weight training 2 days a week.
So far so good, and I am looking forward to sharing my results at the 30 day mark, as well as the 60 day mark!
