4 Of The Toughest Fitness DVDs On The Planet – No Reality Stars In Sight

These non-celeb endorsed fitness DVDs will get you seriously shredded and keep your street cred intact

1. Insanity

What is Insanity?

 Potentially the best known of all the non-celeby DVDs, Insanity has made a name for itself for being, well, a slightly insane workout. Creator Shaun T holds no prisoners!

Comprising 10 separate workout DVDs, it promises a year’s results in a 60 day period (blimey!). With an average workout time of 45 mins (6 days a week), there’s no slacking here. This is a full-on intense fat burning/body sculpting workout, and you will see results. No extra equipment required.

How does Insanity work?

The intensity of the, mainly cardio-based, Insanity workout means you can torch around 1,000 calories a session if you really push it.

A typical daily workout looks a little bit like this

  • A series of movements with no rest period (think tuck jumps, knee raises, squat thrusts and other evil exercises)
  • Repeat that same series of movements, but faster
  • Repeat those moves again, but even faster (sweating a lot now)
  • Take a break
  • Move on to the next sequence of moves and repeat in the same manner

What does it come with?

  • Fitness guide (advice on stretching and how to do certain moves etc)
  • 10 DVDs
  • An elite nutrition guide providing tips on what to eat before and after your workouts

Price = £110

What do you say about Insanity?

Thoughts from Insanity user Liam Towndrow: “A tough program to follow, this is not for the faint hearted! It’s mainly aimed at weight loss.

“I managed to finish the first month and although I didn’t see my muscles swell, I certainly did notice my body getting tighter and trimmer.”
