As a fitness trainer I have seen more than my share of fitness products and videos. I could never pop in a DVD and follow along with a workout program. Until I ran into Insanity. Shaun T. is an amazing fitness trainer who obviously has passion for what he does. This set has changed the game for do-at-home workout videos. The Beachbody team has really put together a winner here.
Along with my current workouts, I will throw in a DVD twice a week and I will sweat! This workout is no joke. I have been a fitness trainer for over 12 years (at the time of writing this) and I have tried every workout available. I get results using Insanity, my clients get results and you should be getting results with insanity as well.
I know my clients struggle finding a productive workout away form our personal training sessions. I always tell them the same thing…
If you want to invest in your body, if you want to lose fat, then invest in insanity.
Invite Shaun T. into your home for a great workout series. This is a great compliment to your current fitness routine or you can even use it as a stand alone program.
Give it a try and please let me know what kind of results your getting with the program.

Before I continue with this post, I have to ask that you please forgive me if what I’m about to say comes off as a little harsh. This is a conversation that I have all the time with my personal training clients and it always starts and ends the same…
I don’t get it, I really want to lose weight, I want to change my body, but I just can’t.
…and my answer is always the same.
You don’t want to change your body. You say you do…
Now, before I get to my point, I have to ask you the same question. Do you want to change your body? I mean it. Do you REALLY want to improve your physique?
Obviously, we all want a better physique. We all want to look better. Just not at the sacrifice of that one cookie. That same cookie is holding us all back.
Now, I’m just using cookies as and example here.
You’re at the office and you have been doing well with your nutritional plan. It’s Friday and a coworker decides to bring a box of cookies. You’ve been good all week, you deserve it. Besides, It’s just one cookie right?
The truth is, that cookie will not set you back. It can’t set you back. If it could, then I would be the first to tell you that this whole exercise and nutrition thing is just not worth it.
The problem comes when we continually try to justify all those little moments when we slip on our diet and exercise program.
You had a long day at work and had to put in a few extra hours. You got up early that morning and worked out hard yesterday anyway. You can take the day off right? it’s just one workout.
Just an hour ago I was working with a client and after a great workout I asked how her nutrition was.
“Oh, I’m doing really well. I did goof a little bit today… but it was only half a burger. I didn’t eat the whole thing”
“It was just half a burger.”
And that’s exactly when i started digging. A new burger joint has just opened up in the neighborhood. Five minutes into the conversation she confessed that she had already (within a one week period) gone to this spot three times and had half a burger on each occasion.
At the end of it all, within a one week period, it turns out that she had accumulated two FULL burgers, enough appetizers for a month, and half a milk shake. And who knows how many little things she forgot to mention.
We tend to justify and quickly forget about all the little things but believe me when I tell you…
It all adds up!
Now this is exactly why I ask my all clients to keep an accurate journal. It is important to record all nutritional and exercise behaviors so that by the end of the week we can accumulate all the little mishaps.
That one cookie along with that missed workout (which quickly became two if not three) along with all those other events that seemed minimal at the time have accumulated to one big set back.
