Will INSANITY work for children? This insanity thing seems great and all but my child, who is kind of on the round side, would like to do it with me and I'd like to know, can she do it with me? Will it work for her? She is twelve years old. Any answer would help. Thanks!

is insanity really not for beginners? I just got insanity. But after doing research I think I got the wrong program. Is insanity really not for beginners? I was about to get p90x but the sales man recommended insanity to loose weight. He said that p90x is more for ppl that r fit n more to gain muscle instead of loosing weight.

I finished the Insanity program and while it was a challenge, I didn't see the results I was hoping for - yes, everything is firmer and I have excellent endurance now but the overall loss in inches or soreness didn't compare to the JM programs. I'm thinking about trying turbofire next or a kettlebell program.

Crazy, Insane workout dude! I haven't feel this challenged in a looong time... nothing like pushing you to the limits! I dont know that you can really not push yourself in this, it almost feels like he is in your living room yelling at you too! LOVE it! would recommend it to anyone that wants a good challenge.

Kristine,

You are such an inspiration and you have such a great attitude! Keep up the good work and I'm sure it will pay off.

I have just started this workout and came in at 207 lbs with the motivation to lose that weight. I had weak knees, tired body; I am not incapable just FAT. A week strong and I look forward to more every day I have pushed myself like I haven't in 2 years. Any beginner CAN definately do this if they know they're READY. Very insane. I love it. Definately consult a doctor to see if it's ok if you have history of heart, knee problems but otherwise, just do it like NIKE. I feel like I'm becoming a different person...energy is up, motivation is crazy, and my body is transforming.....AWESOME!

This workout is truly insane. It requires a lot of discipline. The warm up will even give you a blow. I encourage you to do the program and stick with it. Shaun is an excellent motivator that does not use all the cave man yelling. I guarantee that you will be pleased with you results. PROS: cost, variety of exercises, length of each video, no extra equipment needed. CON: can be hard on the knees. I strongly recommend Insanity if your goal is to shed a few pounds, tone the body, and improve your blood pressure.

This is serious business right here. Cancel that gym membership and do this. I don't care what anyone says this works and i'm just on day 5 and i'm feeling the difference. it will NOT be easy so don't think this is some magic pill. you have to work.

One Word. Insanity. I am literally watching my body transform before my eyes. Definately NOT a beginner workout regime though. You might have to work up to this if you are not used to fitness. This is high intensity!
