Last week I had the privilege of attending the very first Insanity Certification at the Empower Fusion Convention in Chicago, IL. To be in a room full of ‘Insaniacs’ who were passionate about learning this format to teach at gyms and fit clubs around the world was a dream come true. As an Insanity Cast Member, I always thought that this format would be great to teach in a group exercise setting.
Millions of people from all over the world have gotten amazing, ripped results from the In-Home Insanity Workout DVDs, but now you can take Insanity workout classes or even teach hottest fitness program around with the new Insanity Certification.
What is an Insanity Workout?
If you live under a rock or maybe don’t watch TV, then you are forgiven for not being familiar with the Insanity Workout DVDs. Insanity is a 60 Day In-Home workout program that many deem the hardest workout ever put on DVD! Created by celebrity trainer Shaun T, Insanity will push you past your limits! It’s packed with plyometric drills on top of nonstop intervals of strength, power, resistance, and ab and core training moves. No equipment or weights needed. Just the will to get the hardest body you’ve ever had.
For many people, the opportunity to get completely ripped results at home was just what they’d been looking for. No crowded gyms. No lengthy commute. No need to compare yourself to the fit perky person at the front of the class!
But for others, the need to be in a social class setting is vital in finding their fitness motivation. Working out at home didn’t work for them. It was too easy to sit on the couch and let their Insanity Workout DVDs become a fancy paperweight. This Insanity instructor training is the perfect solution to those looking to teach or take an Insanity Workout class!
How do Insanity Workout Classes work?
The Insanity Workout Classes can be taught as both 30 or 50 minutes classes. The 30 minute classes consists of a warm up, 2 blocks of 4 core Insanity moves, and a cool down. Each of the 2 blocks repeat 3 times with a full 1 minute power move at the end of each block that will cause you to Dig Deeper just to finish!
We got to preview the 50 minute class during our Insanity Certification. It starts with a traditional Insanity Warm Up followed by a brief stretch. Then 3 full Insanity blocks repeated 3 times, each with its own finishing Power Move. Then you move onto a brief but intense Ab section to help you obtain that ripped 6 pack you see on the infomercial. Then the Insanity Workout Classes are wrapped up with a much needed cool down.
As an Insanity Workout veteran, I noticed that I worked much harder in the class setting with others around me than I did by myself in front of my TV. That is the great thing about the launch of the Insanity Certification both for instructors and students, the opportunity for healthy competition within the class that ensures everyone will get the best workout possible.
