Insanity: The Asylum

Are you ready to take your game to the next level? Insanity: The Asylum will do just that! Here is my review on this great program from Shaun T. and the Beachbody team.

Sports performance, it is all about sports performance. Do you want to run faster? Jump higher? Be more agile? Hit harder? The Asylum will help you achieve all of those goals. The Asylum was created as a graduate course in crazy. For those that have completed extreme programs like Insanity or P90X, this is a great next option. Shaun T. described it this way, Insanity would be the practice, The Asylum is the game!

Insanity: The Asylum is super intense, extreme cardio and lifting. Where the original Insanity only used body weight exercises, The Asylum turns up the work with better strength moves. You will need a pull up bar and dumbbells/bands. The workouts are almost all under an hour (the GameDay disc is the longest at 60 minutes). Each and every minute is designed to push you harder and make you dig deeper. I would regularly burn 700-800 calories in 45 minutes! For me, The Asylum got me back into running. I used my 1-mile time as a little metric for the program. I ran barely sub 6 minute mile on Day 0. By Day 30, I ran a 5:23 mile (without running during that month!). I had thought I was in great shape being just done with 90 days of P90X... man was it an awesome shock. The Asylum took my cardio to a whole new level. It also gave me such a stronger mindset. Shaun T. is relentless and reminds you to "find what you are made of" and "stay within yourself." I know that I can push harder in every workout from the mental conditioning The Asylum gave me.

If you are looking for the next challenge, give The Asylum a try. I bet your 30-day sentence will be a game changer for your athletic performance! You might come out crazier about fitness than when you check in...

Here are my pics from my round of The Asylum:
