I have been interested in Shaun T’s Insanity program for awhile but I was hesitant to try it for several reasons. First and foremost, I was terrified of the intensity of the workouts, which I feared could kill me. Second, his programs are cost prohibitive and unavailable online (I’m not poor, I’m just
cheap frugal). Finally, I was afraid I wouldn’t dedicate an hour or more each day to working out (which is terrible, I know, but let’s keep it real).
When I learned that Shaun T created the T25 Focus program, which is like Insanity Junior, I was very interested (but still not wanting to pay the high price tag). Essentially this 10 week program is an hour of work crammed into 25 minutes (read: brutally intense with no breaks) for 5 days a week. I love the efficiency of Shaun T’s method and I also admire the results participants’ reported after completing the program.
I am a deal hunter so I was able to find T25 Focus online for $40. And now the only thing standing in my way is me. I have spent the last few days telling myself that I’m not fit enough or strong enough to even try this condensed version of the program. In fact, I planned out two other 90 day challenges that I initially intended to complete before even attempting this one. In my case, it’s not my body limiting me or saying no, it’s my mind. I decided what I was and was not capable of before even trying.
So, guess what? My next fitness challenge is going to be Shaun T’s T25 Focus program. As for negative self talk? Fuck that.
If you’d like a free preview of the type of exercises that I will be doing, check out Shaun T’s 15 minute workout that he did with Dr. Oz.
Wish me luck (I’m terrified)! I will post my Week One review next Monday, so stay tuned. In the meantime, I’d love to know if you have completed this program or a similar one, such as P90X or the real Insanity!
