You’ve probably heard the rumors, but you’re wondering why Insanity Asylum is better than P90x. At one time, I wondered this myself. After all, I thought Shaun T and Tony Horton were both part of that whole Beach Body crew.
I know I’ve talked about this before about why Insanity Asylum is better than P90x but I can’t stress enough why it’s so much better. It takes less time to get better results. I know it sounds crazy and probably like a scam, but seriously it’s not. This stuff is for real. You can’t beat the results Insanity Asylum gives in such a short amount of time. Not 90 days of working out, but 30 days.
At first glance, both programs seem to be promoting similar things. After all, both give you a set of rigorous DVDs, a basic nutrition guideline and a fitness calendar. Having done both, I’d say you’d really have to try them to experience the difference, but here’s a brief run-down, in my opinion, why Insanity Asylum is better than P90x…
Reason #1 Why Insanity Asylum Is Better Than P90x: The Focus
First of all, I like that Insanity Asylum is focused on professional athletes, rather than body builders. I know that Tony Horton isn’t about “bulking up” like some of the extreme body builders you see, but even so, most of us at home just want to tone up and reach our peak natural body shape more than pack on additional muscle mass.
Reason #2 Why Insanity Asylum Is Better Than P90x: The Price
Insanity Asylum sells for 3 installments of $29.95, plus shipping and handling. You receive 6 DVDs, a workout calendar, a guide playbook, a nutrition plan, 2 bonus DVDs (Assessment Testing & Over-Time), the agility ladder and the speed rope. The kit comes with a 30 day money-back guarantee.
The P90x sells for 3 monthly installments of $39.95, plus shipping and handling. You receive 12 DVDs, a workout calendar, a fitness guide, a 3-phase nutrition plan, a video overview of the program, and free online support. The kit comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee.
Even though you get more DVDs with P90x, I feel the agility ladder, speed rope and bonuses are a better value with Insanity Asylum. You really do get all you need with the Insanity Asylum kit and the bottom line is it’s less expensive even if you buy the upgraded kit with the chin-up bar, stirrups and resistance bands.
Reason #3 Why Insanity Asylum Is Better Than P90x: The Simplicity
I didn’t like how P90x had three different phases for the nutrition plan. Let’s just get down to brass tacks! They also promote vitamins, supplements and all sorts of things I’d rather not buy. Insanity Asylum gives you more freedom to make your own choices, while giving you an easy-to-follow guide.
Reason #4 Why Insanity Asylum Is Better Than P90x: The Results
Insanity Asylum is designed to be a more rigorous routine than P90x because it offers noticeable results in just 30 to 60 days, compared to P90x’s 60 to 90 days. After Insanity sold as “the hardest workout on DVD,” Insanity Asylum ups the ante.
