How to get your Insanity T-shirt

By Insanity Cast Member Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson As a featured cast member in the Shaun T Insanity Workout DVDs, I am often asked questions via my Twitter and Facebook accounts about the program all the time.  What is it like to work with Shaun T?  How did you get cast in the DVDs?  What are you always smiling during those crazy squats?   But one question comes up more than any other question: How do I get an Insanity T-shirt? It isn’t about mastering the nutrition plan.  It’s not about form.  Not even about everyone’s love/hate relationship with Power Jumps!   It’s always about that stinkin’ t-shirt!  In my quest to listen and give you what you ask for,  here it is!  Exactly how to get your Insanity t-shirt! 1.  You have to actually DO the INSANITY workout in its entirety! Yep!  If you are going to wear and Insanity t-shirt…

The #1 Tip to See INSANITY Workout Results

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson As a cast member in the DVDs, I am constantly asked how to see the ultimate INSANITY Workout Results.   In fact I did an entire blog giving people my top INSANITY Workout Tips.  Nutrition, Supplementation, Support and Form are all key.  But the #1 Tip to see INSANITY Workout Results is…. (drum roll please)…. EFFORT When I say effort I don’t mean to do the workout better than Shaun T.  It doesn’t even mean that you keep up with us on the DVD.  Heck, if you notice, everyone in the INSANITY Cast is taking breaks as well. Effort is defined as:  Exertion of physical or mental power. To me, true effort means that at the end of a workout I feel like I truly gave it everything I had.  That might mean I took a few breaks.  But did I take a break long enough…

A Day in the Life of My Successful 100-Pound Weight Loss Journey

What I Do: Food, Supplements, Exercises, & Habits!   By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Often I get recognized as the guy in INSANITY DVDs that Shaun T says has ‘the good squats’. But not everyone knows that I grew up as a heavy kid. Back then childhood obesity didn’t run rampant like it does today. So being overweight growing up usually meant I was THE fat kid in class.  I will be forever grateful to those that supported and encouraged me along they way, even when I wasn’t ready to take any action steps to actually change. It literally came out of a very emotional break up in college with my first serious girlfriend. I was at my heaviest, with no real direction or confidence, looking at myself in the mirror asking “Who is going to Love this!?” Have you ever had that moment, where you say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”? That was that moment for…
