Well Albert Einstein clearly never took part in an insanity class…
I had my last lesson yesterday after going every week since January. What a way to get fit! I don’t think I’ve ever managed to stay committed to something for 10 months.. Not even a relationship..
Have you heard of or done insanity? Traditional HIIT workouts, which can burn up to 750 calories in 45 minutes, feature short bursts of maximum intensity with longer periods of rest. But Insanity flips that formula upside-down by combining lengthier periods of high intensity exercise with shorter cool downs.
Now don’t get me wrong, from the time I wake up to the time I get there at 6:30pm every Tuesday, I think of all the excuses I could use not to go. But something tells me I have to (probably the amount of food I’ve eaten the days before). I’ve also had the pleasure of a great teacher who is a PT as well as an Insanity instructor so she has that extra added value of knowing what she is talking about :o)

In the 45 minutes of exercise you want to throw up at least 3 times. By the 2nd ‘block’ it crosses your mind to pretend you have fainted just so you can stop. But you still carry on, no pain no gain right?
When it’s completed you feel great, you get fitter, look happier and this year I did two 10k runs for Nike and Race for Life in under an hour that I never could of done last year.
It’s a shame that I had to cancel my weekly class but I’m taking my improved-fitness self to South East Asia!
Onwards and upwards.. I’ll be back next year on my return after I’ve eaten my weight in noodles and need to shed those pounds!
