Makes sense. People I know who have done it all basically worked their way up to it through some of the other programs. Even for someone in (moderately) good shape, I think trying to step right in to Insanity would be a bad idea.

my wife's getting in to this stuff recently so I'll probably be on the workout bandwagon sooner than later. Anyways, they're running a promo on the Insanity program (with Shakeology) for the month of April. Figured I'd throw it out there for ya if anyone's interested.

I actually know Shaun T personally. Have since college. The workout is REAL! It will put you in great shape but don't over do it if you aren't already in some reasonable shape. Like you aren't going from full couch potatoe to hardcore workout without runnign risk of hurting yourself.
He has another one called "Asylum" which is more sports training/fitness orientated. Might be also worth looking into for those who want to get inshape for athletic purposes and not just general fitness

Started in October and finished the full 60 days at the end of December. Two days after I finished, went to Killington and was bombing hard from 8-4 for three straight days and believe it or not... I was neither that sore nor tired. I felt I was beyond mid-season form at the very beginning of my year. It was unreal. Some of the people I was with thought I was taking speed on the side and they were in their mid-twenties... I am 31.

It's intense. I was doing cycling classes 2-3 times a week and going to the gym a total of 4-5 days a week for various workouts so I was in decent shape before I started, but it still totally kicked my ass. Do as much as you can and try to stick with it. In the beginning, I was taking plenty of rests, but by the end of the first month, I was completing the whole workout through and through with barely, if any rests at all... then came the second month. It's WAAAY harder than the first. I could barely finish the warmup, particularly due to this one exercise where you're in a somewhat push-up position and you have to kick your legs up in the air as far as you can.

Watch out for the plyometrics. Some exercises you can get away with being a little tired and not having the best form, but with any power jumping (or any variation thereof), take a rest of you feel tired. My wife injured her knee a bit not resting during power jumps.

great workout, no equipment needed. I used it at this time last year to get in shape for soccer after going to Australia and coming back in not-so-great shape.

I lost 20 lbs in 8 weeks and felt great. Word to the wise, take care of your joints, be smart about what your capabilities are, and stretch properly.

If you aren't in reasonable shape when you start, I wouldn't recommend jumping right into it, as others have said.

It will help your snowboarding as well for sure.

He's got a new program coming out this summer, T25 or something like that. Supposedly all the workouts are 25 minutes or less. I would definitely be down with that. Time is at a premium with a 1-yr old daughter at home

So for those who are in reasonable shape, a) want to lean out just a bit without wearing out knees/ankles/hips, and b) want to preserve this past season's fitness through Summer and Fall, what do you all recommend? P90X? Insanity toned down some? Other?
