Come talk about your BeachBody Program

I'm looking for people who would like to discuss the BeachBody Program they are working. I am using the "Insanity" program. I'd love to talk w/other who are using: Insanity, P90X, HipHop Abs, or any of the other BeachBody programs. Please chime-in with your comments, successes, or failures w/the programs.

So, I've been working the "Insanity" program since late March. Life and a week's vacation have prevented me from being able to follow the program to a "t". This is frustrating. I'm also frustrated because after starting the program I started losing inches though I started gaining weight. Admittedly, I am not following the recommended diet plan which came with the program. I have a healthy eating plan to start, so did not feel that was necessary. Also, I feel diet plans are very individualized and you really need to eat in such a way which you know you can follow.

Anyway, I'm loving the Insanity program. It's tough. It's challenging. I'm still not able to keep up w/Shaun T on all the programs, but love it just the same. I'm nearly 3 months into the program and still have not made it through the Insanity 60-day calendar, but I keep plugging away. Life, work, family commitments challenge my workout schedule, but I'm going to work Insanity nearly every chance I get (sometimes, I just like to get out and jog :) ).

10 Minute Trainer

I bought the 10 Minute Trainer DVDs and they are ok. What they fail to tell you is you must do 4 of them in a day. The reason I bought the 10 minute trainer was time restraints. I don't have 40 minutes to work out and thought 10 minutes of turbulence training was a great idea.

I don't quite like them.

Slim in Six / 10 Minute Trainer

I agree w/ June 22, 2010 12:06 am poster. It works and its tough. but it is B O R I N the music definately has to go. I use to play my own music, and yes the counting is off.

I recently got the 10 minute trainer set as well and have only tried them a handful of times. I plan on using it for the days that I'm extremely short on time. June 22, 2010 6:42 a.m. poster, you dont *have* to do the four sets in one day, that's just to get the maximum results. Maybe you can carve out separate "10 min. segments" in your day to get maybe 2 of them in. I did sweat alot.

Original poster, I have joined your team =)

p90x is too much of a time commitment for me in the mornings. Esp the yoga and kenpo workouts. I love TurboJam and Zumba.

Just ordered 10 minute trainer and TurboFire. We shall see which I send back. I liked TurboJam but I'm bored with it after five years.

Beachbody is the worst. You always gain it back. In my experience anyway.

Gaining back lost weight is not a workout program's fault!

It was difficult for me to stick with the program (it was intense) I'd like to eventually get back into the program - but with the shape I'm in now I need to go for a few gym sessions first. I also find it a little hard because you need extra equipment (like the push up bar thing) which can get to be a little hard to use if you don't have the space for it. (found out my doorways were too big)
