Insanity Workout Results in 3 Steps

Insanity - Get Fit

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson – Insanity Cast Member & Master Trainer Thousands of people are seeing awesome Insanity Workout Results, but maybe you are one of those that have tried it and were disappointed because your after photo didn’t match those you saw on the Insanity infomercial.  Well never fear I am here to help!  It all starts with the decision to work with a Coach during your Insanity Workout journey. Many people don’t even realize they have the option to work with a Coach when they purchase the Insanity Workout DVD set.  So they get the box and just pop in the first DVD without looking at the guide, the calendar, or the Elite Nutrition Guide that comes with it.  They go barreling into it with no plan and no understanding of how it works.  Then they claim that Insanity didn’t work for them.   That would be…

Focus T25 Shaun T Workout at Walt Disney World – An Opportunity Knocks Story

Shaun T

A story of being ready when opportunity knocks by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson   This past week I was totally pampered at the Beachbody Coach Success Club Trip at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.  Beachbody, the company behind Insanity, P90X, TurboFire, and Brazil Butt Lift, rewarded its qualifying Coaches with a free trip to Orlando for training, fun, and of course …. world class workouts with Insanity workout creator, Shaun T. Looking over the schedule I was stoked to see THREE Shaun T Workouts on the docket.  Sunrise Insanity workouts in the middle of Epcot before the park opened … are you kidding me?  I was so stoked.   Then the excitement grew even more when those of us who were Elite Beachbody Coaches got a sneak peek of the new Shaun T workout program, FOCUS T25!  So not only was I going to get to workout with my buddy…

Insanity Certification is LIVE!

Insanity Certification Chicago

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson 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…

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…

How to DIG DEEPER when doing the Shaun T INSANITY Workout?

What exactly does it mean to ‘DIG DEEPER’?  By Jimmy Hays Nelson If you own a television then you are probably familiar with the #1 ranked infomercial in the country: Shaun T’s INSANITY® Workout DVD Series. It claims that it “might be the hardest workout program ever put on DVD”. It also warns that you’d better be prepared to DIG DEEP. Cute phrase, but what exactly does it mean to DIG DEEPER? As a cast member in three of the INSANITY workouts (Core Cardio & Balance, Max Recovery, & Max Interval Circuit), I’m constantly asked what it is like to train with Shaun T. The concept of DIGGING DEEPER was new to me when I met him. Heck, I thought I was a pretty fit bad ass the day I went in for my INSANITY audition. I completed multiple rounds of P90X…how hard could this program be? Let’s just say within 5 minutes of the warm up,…

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…

How to do P90X and INSANITY in an Apartment?

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I truly believe that there is a paradigm shift when it comes to people reaching their fitness goals. The new trend favors in home fitness routines over paying expensive gym memberships that require you to pack a bag, travel to the gym, cram all your belongings into a tiny smelly locker room and hope it isn’t crowded or that all the equipment isn’t covered in someone else’s sweaty DNA. During my time in NYC I quickly realized weather is another element that might keep you from your daily gym workout. Who wants to walk through wind, rain, and snow to go to the gym first thing in the morning?  This is why programs like P90X, INSANITY, and TURBO FIRE are attracting fans at a record pace! These programs are guaranteed to work, but what if you live in a city like NYC or just a…
