    Hi there folks, just joined the site but I've always been curious about the INSANITY and P90X workouts. Are they something that you guys can reccomend? They seemed awful expensive to risk at, thanks!

    how much would you pay for two months of your gym membership? how much would you pay if your results were guaranteed?

    to me, you get out of something what you put into it. People that get these programs for free are the people who typically quit and don't finish. The people who commit to themselves and take a risk are the ones who benefit the most. There's something about being financially invested in something that helps motivate people.

    I just finished my first week of insanity, today is my first rest day. I don't have much weight to go and I've still already lost half a pound. I feel so good when I'm done with a workout for the day. LOVE IT!

    I am in my second week of month 2 and it is still kicking my butt! Didn't see much of a change duirng month one, which I hear is normal, but for month 2 I have gotten back into logging my food on MFP and the workouts are MUCH harder so I know I am burning more calories. I don't have a totally accurate measurement of my calories burned - I bought a cheap heartrate monitor on Amazon but it was not working - it had my heart rate at 70 during the middle of the workout, which is obiously not accurate. I may need to invest in a better one. For now I am logging my workouts as high intensity aerobics.

    I haven't done weight/measurements since starting month 2 but can already feel a difference in my clothes. As someone who has ALWAYS had a problem with keeping my motivation up, I love the MFP and insanity combo! My husband is doing P90X right now and I am deciding if I will redo insanity or do an insanity/P90X hybrid program after finishing month 2.

    Feel free to friend me!

    Started week 2 today. I already feel stronger during the workout than I did last week, although the plank combos are still killing me!

    I just re-started Insanity today. I took the fit test. I'm ready to do this. I have fallen off the wagon a couple of times, so it's time to get serious. I want to finish before the new year if possible. If anyone would like to add me, please feel free. I like the support and giving it right back. Good luck everyone!

    ... For now I am logging my workouts as high intensity aerobics.

    Thats what I do! (unless its a recovery day and then I add it as just aerobics). Seems to work OK for me....

    I just finished day 2, Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit, I guess finished is not quite true as I had to stop several times. What a workout. I have been walking around like a new born colt ever since I finished. Hopefully some of this soreness will go away by tomorrow. Good luck to everyone and again...I can't wait until tomorrows workout. Have a great day!!

    Hi everyone!
    I just started Insanity yesterday, and I'm really excited about it. I tried it before but never got through the second half..this time, I'm going all the way! I can't wait to see all our successes here over the next two months :)

    I just started last night with the fit test too. I was expecting to have a harder time with the strength to do the moves than the cardio of keeping moving, but it was closer to the opposite for me. Looking forward to pushing play on the real first workout tonight.

    Started Day 1 last night! Going to try real hard to commit to finishing the program- I get bored with videos VERY easily.

    I love insanity i'm now into my third week (half way through) and I have unfortunately (or fortunately) had to follow my turbofire plan schedule a little less strict to ensure I have the energy to fully follow the insanity program. But I still love having turbofire available to get in a HIIT workout after work or on sundays :) I will try to work out a way to do both!!!!
    Insanity = amazing :) dig deeper!
