Insanity is a total body workout that does not require a gym or any equipment. Insanity uses your own body weight for resistance and the program is based on a fitness method called "max interval training." In traditional interval training, you exercise at a very intense pace for a short period of time, and then rest for longer periods in between. Insanity flips this idea by extended exercise periods and shortening rest periods. Help increase your aerobic fitness level while burning fat.
