I couldn’t imagine doing Insanity every day.  It’s too, well, insane.  I found myself looking forward to P90X.  I did a hybrid- P90X weights, but rather than do their cardio, I did the Insanity.  I’ve read recently that weight training is really important for weight loss.  And if you have that much weight to lose, Insanity will kill your knees.  I will echo everyone above that stresses diet changes.  I already ate healthy, whole foods (most the time), and don’t eat red meat or dink soda.  So I didn’t change my diet, thinking working out would take care of the 10 lbs I wanted to lose.  It didn’t happen.  Rather, I gained weight.  Then I started with Shaun T’s 6 day slimdown, and the weight started falling off.  Oh, and I like Tony Horton.  Shaun T is just lovely, but I can’t STAND Tonia.  Strangely, what made the weight come off the fastest was walking 4 miles at lunch M-F.  I was amazed that something so much easier than Insanity would work so much better.

Count me in the group preferring insanity. But if you are very overweight or not used to very intense, athletic workouts it might be too much so ease your way in!

Google “p90x doubles Insanity”. My Fiance did BOTH at the same time. Yea, sounds crazy, but his before and after pics are unbelieveable. It changed his life. He looked like a different person when he was done. The most important thing to remember is you have to 1. EAT RIGHT 2.PUSH PLAY EVERY DAY. One without the other is sort of a waste of effort.
