Insanity Asylum Volume 1

Who & What?

For those of you that are familiar with workout videos you’ve probably heard of this one.

It’s an extreme fitness workout by popular fitness trainer Shaun T.  He’s famous for other workout videos including Insanity, Focus T25, Max: 30, and others.

If you’re looking to gain muscle mass, this isn’t for you.  But if you’re looking to get ripped fast, keep reading…


I was looking for a workout routine that provided quick results regardless of the effort required.  I had no experience with workout videos prior to this.

The P90 series offers results but takes 90 days.  Insanity requires 60 days.  Insanity Asylum required 30 days which seemed doable.


I did this routine for most of 2014.  Whenever I finished a 30 day routine, I just started it all over again.

On average, each workout is about 45 minutes.  If you’re looking for a breakdown of each workout you can get that from the beachbody web site.


I was able to complete each workout in the comforts of my living room.  You can use resistance bands and dumbbells but I didn’t use either.  The only equipment I used is what came with the videos (i.e. skipping rope and ladder).



The results after each 30 days was incredible.  However, you don’t have to wait that long.  You can see results after each week.

Final Thoughts:

I recommend it to everyone.

Everyone says they don’t have the time but when you see the results you’ll make time.  However, if you really don’t then maybe T25 or Max: 30 options are a better fit. I’ve never tried them but I trust Shaun T.

For 2015, I decided to try Volume 2.  Look for that blog posting towards the end of the year.
