Just ordered the dvd's for both myself and my husband. We decided it would be better to do this together every morning - to stay motivated and keep each other accountable. Looking forward to kicking some booty soon!

I just got my package too, and i am going to do the fitness test today to start me off. I sure need this!

I need to lose about 15 pounds by August 16th to fit into a bridesmaid dress that is a size too small.

Hi fellow Insane-aholics! I just got my packet of Insanity dvds yesterday and jumped feet first! I'm on day two- and wow, it's really as insane as it promises. I am up for the challenge! I'm really excited to be challenged and get results. I read the nutrition guide and am sticking to five 300 calorie meals a day. I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with everyone else here! Stay strong everyone.

I'm Rachel! I just received my Insanity package last week and did the Fit Test #1 yesterday. it was tough, but I honestly feel like I need something like this to keep me going.

I tried to keep up with each exercise but it got hard sometimes. It's okay though because I wasn't expecting to do so well on my first try.

I am 5'7, 21 years old, and weight 162 pounds. I'm borderline overweight, so I really want to lose these last 20 pounds and look good by the end of July. I can't wait to continue with this program and see some results. Good luck to everyone! emoticon

Hi everyone. I just ordered my DVDs yesterday, so I'm patiently waiting for them to arrive. I'm ready to sweat! I think this will be a great way to shake up my system since I appear to be dealing with a plateau.

Hi everyone! My name is Suzanne and I just took the initial Fit Test and am I excited. Really hoping this is the kick in the butt I need to get back on track. A year ago I was in the shape of my life and physically fit. I was running every day up to 12 miles on my longest run, had whittled my time down to an 8:30 mile at best, and was eating clean. Emotions and stress got in the way this year and I found myself back to my old lazy habits and so here I am 15lbs heavier and frustrated. So I NEED this kick in the pants! Can't wait for my first workout tomorrow! I'm ready to go INSANE!

Hello! My name is Audrey and I am starting Insanity on Monday. I have been on SP since 2007 but this is the first year that I have been on it consistently. I have been doing ChaLean Extreme for a few months now but not consistently and now I think I'm just bored with it so I have decided to try Insanity instead. I like cardio more than strength training so maybe this will help me become more consistent with my workouts.

I am ready to go INSANE with all of you!!!

Hi! I'm Tammy, 38 and joined Sparks with my SIL last fall. I have been doing okay with the weight loss with minimal exercise but realize to get to the next level, I need to turn it up. Well, long story short, my hubby bought Insanity last year and said he would do it with me. So, yesterday we did our fit test and if I can look like Tonya, I am all for this program!

Seriously, I am a little nervous about starting the program tonight. But, I am feeling much better after reading the post here. I think this is going to be a great challenge to find out what I can really do. I'm glad that I found this group to help me through this process.

Hey everyone! I'm Erica, I'm 23, and I'm back here on Spark after a little hiatus. I joined back in 2007 and managed to lose and maintain a 20lb weight loss since then. My INSANITY package is supposed to arrive this weekend, so I plan to start on Monday! I'm excited and very nervous after all the reading I've been doing about it. But, I'm SO ready for those amazing results! I'm happy this group will be here throughout the tough 60-days ahead of me!

I am re-starting Insanity today as I didn't get a chance to complete it yet. I love love the setup as it reminds me of school gym class exercises which I loved so much. I'm not a huge fan of modern day repetitious aerobics and love what Shaun T brings to the table!! Hopefully I will be able to get through the process this time. I have an inoperable brain tumor and sometimes it tires me out and it may take me longer than the 60 days but I'm all for it! Good luck everyone! :o)

Whether you live your life to love or love to live your life... you will always find happiness!!

I was worried that I wasn't fit enough to start, so I did a "Week 0", doing the first five workouts in sequence. The results: I'm fit enough, bring on Week 1 tomorrow!

Hello All!
I just ordered Insanity and will start as soon as it arrives. I will work it around my running schedule to give me more challenging cardio on my non-run days. Can't wait to get started and lose the last 20lbs to reach my goal!

Hello everyone! My name is Elise I am 25 years old and have decided to take on insanity. I have a 1 1/2 year old daughter who is my motivation to stay fit. After I had her was when I started to take an interest in fitness. I am starting insanity today! I have several friends who are also doing the program as well as my mom so hopefully we can all keep each other motivated to push ourselves to the level of Insanity!

Hello everyone. I just started Insanity. I'm on day three and boy has it been tough. This program is no joke but I love it. And the warm up is a workout within its self. I'm excited to get to day 15. I have my senior graduation in two months and I want to be in the best shape possible. I'm sure this program is the way to go!

I am new to this group, I am about to wrap up my second week of Insanity. I can ALMOST make it through the entire warm-up...

I am really enjoying the workout. I did Power 90 last year and between diet and exercise I lost about 65 pounds. Now I am up about 7 pounds from my lowest weight, but my waist keeps toning and I now working on tightening up my belly area.

Good luck to all doing the Insanity program.

Hi all! I am new to Insanity. I just got the urge to buy it the other night. It should be here in a week. I am excited to try something new. I love my gym, but I just wanted something to switch up my routine. Does anybody do the beach body website too? I kinda got duped into the membership (even though I thought I said I would try it for 30day free). Any tips before I get going?

Hi Insaners!
I've been on here since I started 4 weeks ago but I never introduced myself.

I am in love with this workout and it has done amazing things for my body! I've had a "baby belly" for 23 years and this is the first thing that has shrank my midsection.

The strange thing is since starting I haven't lost any weight, however, since I have lost so many inches, everyone I meet is asking me if I am losing weight and how terrific I'm looking! Woo Hoo! I incorporate my kettlebell training into the program and I get a terrific workout each time.

All the best to each of you!
Go INSANE!

Hi There!

I start Insanity workouts on Monday, looking to lose 30 lbs. I am going back and forth on which program would be best for quicker weightloss results... Insanity or P90X? Any advice is greatly appreciated : )

Thought I would take it up a notch and the workouts caught my eye while I was chillin on the couch...

So Insanity arrived yesterday and I will begin Monday, with the pictures and measurements to boot..

I am kinda anxious, knowing that I am going to really "dig in, & dig deeper"

I don't usually subscribe to "fitness in a box" but this was too cool to pass up. and since I'm a single mom with a goal in mind...

Flat abs and no excuses to distract me...

Although, I can barely do One Push up. Ha.
Lets' see where I'll be in two months.

Glad to be sparking with all ya'll. :)

Hey I've found myself waking up early and catching the Insanity infomercial here and there. I'm def. obese but want to fix that. I'm curious would this be the workout to go with? I have lost 60lbs already by just watching what I eat. I'm definately ready to be active and lose all the fat that has been a burden to me. I'm looking to lose another 100 lbs in the long run and tone up and be happy.

Taxes are coming soon so this will be my one and only splurge that I am looking forward to. Any advice and tips would be great! I know it will be tough in the begining but I need this.

Hi! My name is Carri. I started Insanity 2 weeks ago and love it!! I'm so glad I found this team and look forward to getting to know everyone!

I am also looking for info about heart rate monitors. I'm thinking about buying one but have no idea where to start. There are so many options (chest strap or no strap, etc.) and so many brands that I have no idea what to even look at. So, if anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, ideas, etc. I would love to hear them!! Thanks.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Hi. I'll be starting Insanity with the first work out on Monday. Doing the fit test, pictures and taping on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing if this can help me lose that body fat that has accompanied me into my 40s.

Hi everyone, I'm a week into the program and I love it. I think it's the hardest workout I've ever done. I'm glad I started.

hey everyone! I am new to insanity. I am planning on doing my fit test on Sunday, getting my measurements and before pics done. I am really hoping that this will be what my body needs to push out these last 30 pounds!
