When it comes to DVD workouts then nothing really sticks out like beach body productions, the founder of all Shaun T’s and many other coaches, but for me, I love the enthusiasm of Shaun T and his true passion and the way he delivers a powerful, challenging workout.
The question of this DVD is it milking the cash cow of insanity? Can it top insanity? Why even choose this over insanity? I mean if you haven’t heard of insanity where have you been the wilderness? Will you lose weight?
I went into the Cize review basing it on the insanity and I was disappointed as although Cize is amazing it wasn’t aimed at the insanity market, however, I have heard that focus T25 is!
But hold on…. If it is aimed at the insanity market why wouldn’t you just go out and invest in that? There is a reason and I will get to that shortly if you haven’t worked it out by the title of the DVD.
What Is Focus T25
Focus T25 is another workout series from beach body and Shaun T, it does what it says on the cover, you focus full intensity for 25 minutes that is performed 5 days a week.
Shaun T ran an experiment on himself for a year after research suggests that you can get the same benefit and results in 25 minutes as you can in 45-60 minutes.
You’ve heard of High-intensity Interval training, right? have you tried it? if the answer is yes you will know how good and rewarding this method of training is, now, this is where T25 evolves that this is FIT ( focus interval training)
Never heard of it? neither had I, it’s the same as High-intensity interval training but without NO rests……. say what!!
That’s right, you’re going to be panting, sweating and begging for the timer to end.
Shaun t in his experiment has stripped everything out you don’t need from longer workouts to bring you the same or better results in less time.
Shaun T and beach body bring you 10 explosive workouts in two phases,Alpha and Beta! If you’re curious about what these workouts are here’s a description of each one.

What do I Think About this DVD set…..
So far I have enjoyed all their products but as with everything I do have my concerns about certain things that I will get into shortly.
The Idea of just 25 minutes a day is extremely appealing as I have an extremely busy lifestyle there is a downside to this though because it condensed your not going to rest if this puts you off then don’t stop reading as there is a solution.
This DVD can be a scary prospect as it is mega challenging, however, with all Shaun T’s workouts there is a modifier as most people can’t keep up with Shaun, just look for one of his colleagues who does an easier slower workout he will point out who that is, in this case, it’s Tanya
My second issue with these DVD’s are if you’re looking to lose weight then fantastic it will most certainly slim you down if you’re looking to shred yourself may be more challenging as your not using any resistance you may see a slight improvement but don’t expect too much.
When I did this programme it was a real blast and sweat fest just because it’s 25 minutes don’t make it easy I found this harder than insanity. I felt my fitness was really starting to improve and as I was in good shape already I didn’t see much difference regarding muscle tone.
The little issues aside I think this is a great investment for anyone who is looking to lose weight or increase cardio fitness.
