    Don’t let the 25 minutes fool you, you will work in this program, July 10, 2013

    This is a good, fun workout program with the production quality you would expect from a Beachbody product (note: I am NOT a BB coach, so have nothing to sell you, I’m just giving my opinion).

    This program is neither Insanity nor Asylum. It’s about as intense as Insanity without all of the crazy plyometrics but with a little of the additional strength and agility from Asylum, but I wouldn’t say it has the same focus as Asylum. Asylum is really geared more toward the very serious athlete, while T25 is more geared toward the very serious fitness enthusiast. To be honest, most of us aren’t training for a professional level sport, so this is not a problem and you get an amazing workout in just 25 minutes. And it doesn’t require all of the equipment of an Asylum-type workout, just a mat and the included band or some weights if you have them.

    There’s a Shakeology commercial before each workout, which is really annoying, but the discs are programmed so that you can fast forward through them.

    BOTTOM LINE
    Good, quick workout. You get a lot of workout in a little time with less impact than Insanity. If you want to shape up but don’t have hours a day, this is an excellent choice. It’s not a fitness program for a professional athlete. If that’s what you are looking for, maybe Asylum 1 and 2 might work for you, but most professionals really need personal professional coaching and much more than 25 minutes a day, not a mass-market DVD program.

    LATEX WARNING
    My box contained a strength band. The band is made of latex and is NOT wrapped separately, so if you have a bad latex allergy, you need to be aware of this.

    MODIFICATIONS
    Each workout has a modified option. If you have done other Shaun T workouts, you’ll remember Tanya. Tanya shows the modifications in these videos (she’s not as obnoxious as in Insanity, and actually does a very nice job as the modifying fitness model). The modifications are mostly low-impact choices, which are nice if you have any joint issues.

    Although I didn’t get injured doing Insanity or Asylum, I did have some pretty bad knee pain by the end of each program and had to take a break from working out. You can still get a pretty intense workout doing the modifications if you really put effort into it.

    I like this addition because it allows for more people to do this workout if they are at different levels, or it allows for me to take do a week of lower impact in the middle if I want to give my joints a break without having to take a whole week off. The modifier is also nice for people who want to easy into a program or have joint issues or other problems. It allows more people to have access to a great workout program. I really commend BB for putting this in and hope they include it in all of their future programs.

    HOW THE PROGRAM IS ORGANIZED
    T25 has you working out five days a week, with a double workout on the fifth day. Then you rest completely for a day, and stretch the second “off” day (there’s a stretch DVD). Like the title implies, each workout is 25 minutes.

    Another reviewer said she didn’t think this program was as intense as other Shaun T programs, but I think that if you want to push yourself, you can certainly get a great workout. If you are already in great shape, you may want to jump right to the Beta phase for the harder workouts.

    There are virtually no breaks in these workouts. There may be “rest” exercises, but you will be working the whole 25 minutes, not even a water break. Warmups are short, and the cooldowns are an extra 2-3 minutes after your 25 minute workout.

    The workouts have what Shaun T calls “progressions.” Most exercises start with a piece of the final exercise, and you build on that first movement until you have the whole final movement. Please don’t think that means you will work any less. The first move of a progression is still quite a workout and the closes thing you will get to a break in your 25 minutes. You can take it easy, or really keep pushing. Then there are periodic “burnouts” where you do the final movement hard and fast.

    Separated into two segments: Alpha and Beta. You can turn off the music, or have it play normally or, if you already know the workout, you can set it to play loud but still hear Shaun T a little through the music.

    Each exercise is noted on the screen, with a countdown timer for the whole workout. There’s also a moving thermometer-type bar to let you know how much of each exercise you’ve done and how much is left. The next exercise will start to flash five seconds before so you know it’s time to switch.

    ALPHA (month 1)

    This is a month of foundational fitness. If you already have excellent base fitness, you may want to think about moving straight to Beta, or just doing a week of Alpha before moving to Beta. It’s relatively analogous to the first month of…

    Although this workout is hard core it helped that there’s a person doing the modified version. When I got tired it’s easy to switch and still get the results I wanted. 4 weeks and down 25 lbs this fat girl starting out at 260 can do it so can you!

    My brother and I are doing the series together and have been doing it for a few weeks. Yes the moves are basic, but they work and I appreciate that I’m not flailing about like a fish out of water. These workouts are challenging and produce results. You can modify and adjust as your fitness improves, or depending on your soreness! Results and progress are what keep me motivated. Just like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it. This set is an excellent value for the price. We love the challenge of these workouts. I can’t wait to see the changes in my body over the next few weeks, I am gaining muscle and losing fat and am very excited. I also added an excellent testosterone booster to my workout regimen and I really feel the difference, it works Testorex – Boost Testosterone Levels in Days, While Decreasing Estrogen and Cortisol Levels thank you very much,
