Insanity: The Asylum is not just hard, it’s quite frankly insane! And time consuming! I honestly did that program for two days before I gave up and went back to my all time favorite workout regimen, T25. I’m not just a single mother of two (which would make my schedule crazy enough) but I’m also a college student, which means I have little to no time for self-improvement.

I need something that will allow me to get in and get fit without compromising those precious few hours while my children are at school (and I’m not).
