After going through the first five workouts (through pure cardio and abs), I am finding that I'm much closer to getting through the whole workout, but I am so glad that there are super fit people in the workouts who bail out during the session! Thank you!!!!
Aches and pains, yes, there are a couple of exercises that cause some extra pain, so I just work around those for a day or two.
I think the food book is killer. That has really helped me shape and adjust my eating.
I have seen results over the last three weeks - I can get much further in the workouts, I have shed pounds, I am eating healthier, I have better definition in my arms and legs.
I have a long way to go, but off to a good start!

Hi all, I am an out of shape 40yoa female and just finished my first round of asylum. I am very pleased with the progress that I made in these 30 days. I have gone from doing the push-ups on my knees to actual push-ups, my stamina has increased tremendously and I have lost quite a few inches. I am starting my next round immediately and very much looking forwards to it.

First off I have to give it to Shaun T for making an absolute monster of a program. These workouts do just what they promise, and this is improve your sports performance, no matter what that sport is. The variety of the workouts keeps you from getting worn out on any one particular video, and Shaun T is the ultimate motivator, truly making you feel like part of Team Asylum.
Pros: The addition of the equipment such as the agility ladder and speed rope make these workouts fun and entertaining, and make you focus on form first to make each rep count. And the fact that Asylum comes with hybrid calendars for P90X and Insanity makes this even more of a great deal, and adds even more variety to your workout plan.
Cons: Alot of the moves in Gameday/Overtime and Vertical Plyo are high impact, and having these workouts on back-to-back days can sometimes aggrevate knee joints or smaller leg muscles, so just know your body and take breaks when needed.

It's intense but I like it! My only issue is the time! I wish was around the 30-35 min mark as it is a supplement to another program that I do in the mornings.
Results are slower than I have wanted.. But I think when you are working on that last 10 pounds it just takes time!
