Well today I did the FINAL fit test and have officially completed INSANITY!

I'm not going to lie, it was a tough journey. I suffered two injuries, one still nagging me, but I pushed through with the doctors blessing, and didn't skip one single workout.

I went in with realistic expectations, and am completely happy with the results. No, I didn't get a six pack, no, my arms didn't get to be 24 inches. I got better endurance, I did get stronger, and things that I couldn't do at the start of the program, or hell, even month two, I can do now.

I did a video where I talk about my results, and my journey a little (I friggen hate the video), and recorded some of my final fit test where I in fact...look like a fool. If you want to check it out...it's here:




Here are my FINAL results with this program, pictures will follow:

Switch Kicks: 45 -- 70
Power Jacks: 35 -- 67

    Great job! I had to take a 2 month break after spraining my knee, but I just picked back up into it, and have about 2 more weeks to go for my completion. Even with the break, I at least want to be able to say I did it!

    If it helps, my measurements weren't taken until week 2 :\ I forgot to do them except the weight.


    Thank you everyone for your encouragement! Like I said in the video...taking a bit of time off (well, not off, but doing something lighter like T25 until I heal up), and I'm admitting myself into the Asylum next!!

    Thanks man! It's guys like you that didn't let me give up!

    I got exactly what I put into this thing! Sure I could have eaten better....much better....but I'm happy with what I've got!!!

    I'm seriously thinking of doing a month 1 workout just to see if I make it through the entire workout without a break!

    Huge results Joe - congrats!!!

    I also wish I took more pics and measurements when I started. I just did 1 picture lol.

    I took measurements before I started month 2 - so at least I'll see how I improved since then.
    I have 2 weeks and 2 days left, I believe - love Insanity! And my insane friends here are what helps me get through each day.

    I'm stupid LOL. I had taken more pictures than I thought and it got lost in the shuffle I guess. I found it when I sent my pics to Beachbody for the T-Shirt.
