Insanity vs. P90X: Which one is “better”?
I get asked that question a lot. The truth is, it depends on your own personal goals. I’ve done both workouts and decided to show a comparison here, to give an overview of both. Then, it’s up to you to decide.
It really all comes down to your goals and what kind of workout you prefer. Personal preference on who you want as your “personal trainer” will also come into play. Either way, P90X and Insanity are both intense workout programs, so the fact that you are here reading this already shows you are somewhat in shape and you want a challenge!
Let me just say that BOTH of these programs are awesome! My biggest problem when I first started was choosing which one to go with, myself. I ended up choosing Insanity first because I wanted to lose some body fat, and when I finished I began the P90X program. And yes, I lost body fat on both. I am currently on my second round of Insanity and I’m still seeing results.
Here’s a summary of the features of both programs:
To sum it up, if you want results, either one will do the trick! Tony Horton, with his sense of humor, and his words of encouragement to “Do your best and forget the rest”, will kick your butt every time. And Shaun T, with his coach mentality, pushing you to “Dig Deeper” will, yes, kick your butt every time. It’s also very important not overlook a balanced nutrition plan, which is included in both packages.
