Wow…I can’t believe it’s finally done! My wife Shanna and I just did our last Insanity workout, and we are officially done with the 60-day program. It was awesome!
Yes, I mean awesome in a “Wow, that is probably the hardest thing that I’ve ever done” kind of way, but awesome nonetheless!
See, that’s the thing with the home workout programs that Beachbody produces – they make you work hard! There is no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to attaining a high level of fitness, or in losing that extra bodyfat. If you want results, ya gotta do the work!
Work is exactly what Shanna and I have been doing for the past 60 days straight, and the results speak for themselves. Check out the Insanity before and after pictures below, and be sure to see the staggering Fit Test results as well.
Not only did we lose a bunch of bodyfat, but we are both in drastically better physical condition than we were when we first started the program. I most definitely recommend that you check out Insanity for yourself, and Shanna and I are both Beachbody Coaches, so we’d be happy to help you every step of the way – no charge!
Also, now that we haveve jacked up our cardiovascular and muscular endurance to previously unheard of levels, we are going to start P90X on November 16th. We are welcoming all health, fitness, and weight loss seekers to join in the challenge with us, and to getting a huge jump on their 2010 fitness goals!

Insanity Fit Test Results
Insanity Fit Test Exercise Definitions:
Switch Kicks – standing up straight and alternately kicking each leg out in front as high as you can.
Squat Jacks – jumping jacks, only in Squat Jacks you go down into a full squat at the end of every repetition.
Power Knees – standing up straight with your hands interlaced overhead, and then bringing 1 knee up at an angle across your body as many times as you can.
Power Jumps – down into a full squat and then leaping up into the air as far as you can.
Globe Jumps – one hop back, one hop to the right, one hop forward, and one hop to the left equals 1 repetition.
Suicide Jumps - from a standing position down into a plank position, then back to standing and then leap straight into the air.
Push Up Jacks – regular push ups, only you spread your feet wide apart and then bring them back together on every single repetition

As you can see in Shanna’s case as well as my own, most of the Fit Test results were as much as TWICE what we started with, and often times even more than that. I can’t emphasize enough how much your cardiovascular and muscular endurance gets enhanced by doing Insanity!
What can I say? Insanity rocks! It’s hard, and it will push you up to and then over any limits that you previously had, but that’s okay, because that is where the results are!
Shanna and I learned a lot about how to get the most out of the program, and we would be happy to share that information with anyone who is interested in getting some great results from Insanity.
If we would have known at the beginning what we know now, our results would have been even better than the great results that you just saw and read about.
If we do Insanity again in the future, we will certainly apply what we learned, and in the meantime, we are going to do P90X instead! We kick off on November 16th, so if you want to come along with us and get some GREAT results, we’d love to give you some free help along the way.
Grab your own copy of Insanity at the Beachbody store, or check out the P90X page for more info on that awesome program. Either way, ACT NOW to make 2010 your best health and fitness year ever!
Shanna (yours too!) results look fabulous! Perhaps a daft question since I see dramatic differences in her thighs/lower body, but was this all a result of only following the Insanity work out, as the Insanity calendar suggests?
