I'm doing Shaun T's Rockin Body and the Modifiers to help. I'm 52 and out of shape. I can't do some of the Jumping moves that he does. One of the ladies on the video does it in a modified fashion and I can do those moves. I hope one day to get better and not have to use the modifications. I'm doin pretty good so far. I'm on week two. Today I didn't completely use the modifiers so I felt like I have improved. :D Good luck to you!

My husband and I are thinking about doing T25. He is very active and I'm not, and I have asthma. He wants something that won't require buying a lot of extras and I want something I can do that won't flare up my asthma. Do the modifiers make it easier?

I'm 52 and way out of shape...my 20 yr old son got me Shau T's "Rockin body" workout. I started last night. I danced/exercised for an hour!! So proud of myself. I added it to my fitness tracker. How on earth am I supposed to know how many calories I burned? Can anyone tell me? Thank you in advance! emoticon

I am on Day 2 of week 2 and I lost 7.8 pounds the first week. This goes along with the 2.25 inches from my waist. I found this is challenging but rewarding. Following the meal plan is certainly important with any workout as well. I had great results with P90x and mixed results with Insanity because of my diet. I hope to hit my goal quick but regardless I will continue my journey.

I have this one sitting in my workout DVD cabinet. I think I will pull it out and give it a try. If I can get through an Insanity workout, with breaks mind you, I can get through this (famous last words).

I'm on day 13 of T25 Beta. I've lost a few pounds and feeling great. The endorphins kick in everyday. Something that I hadn't been getting enough of with my dog walks. 25 minutes go by so fast and I look forward to the few minutes afterwards of the stretch. Good luck to all of you thinking of picking up his dvd's. You won't regret it.

Good post, exactly what I was looking for. I was up late, nearly 20 lbs to lose and desire to get back in shape, so T-25 looked pretty good. Heck, I can do 25 minutes a day without leaving the house right? I hated it. I made it through 2 weeks and I can see the improvement on many of the moves and stamina. I like cardio and Speed 1.0. But abs and lower focus is why it is going back. During those 2, I am looking at Shawn T, thinking, "You're insane!" I concluded that it is Insanity in 25 minutes.

My goal first and foremost is to lose weight, my shape will change and I know how to tone with weights. The scale did not move during my first 2 weeks. I rather have 5 days of cardio and build in some ab, leg and arm work.

Also, I am back on SparkPeople. I tried the Beachbody site, it was too complicated. Today I tracked all of my meals on SparkPeople. Welcome home! emoticon

So awesome seeing all of you doing and loving t25! I'm on my third week of beta and don't want it to be over :( I'm actually probably just going to start it all over again and do the whole thing twice before summer! It is definitely worth your money, and if you are debating getting this or joining a gym, I would say to buy this first, complete it and then join the gym. You definitely get a full great workout in, in those 25 min

Hi everyone! I just started T25 myself. I am doing day 5 of week 2 Alpha today. I can already feel myself pushing harder and completing more of the moves. I am staying off the scale but I did take before photos. I haven't started the nutrition plan, and although I am eating mostly clean, healthy food, I don't eat enough fruits/veggies and too many nuts, seeds, etc... So I think if I can just get that in order I'll have good results! Did anyone use shakeology the whole time and/or the nutrition plan?

I've been doing Focus T25 for about 3 weeks now & the results have been exciting :)

I started my journey with Beachbody almost a year ago with Insanity & became a coach in August so I could start helping others & now run online challenge groups every month!

Meeting new people through Sparkpeople and my online FB groups has been so encouraging! How are all of you doing? I still struggle with the Cardio workout :/

I just bought T25, I love the fact that it is only 25 mins. I also own Insanity, but now I have to get rid of it. I have not had the chance to use T25 yet, but I liked Insanity when I was actually doing it, so if it's anything like that I know I will get results when I stop being lazy. LOL emoticon

So, I should have finished Beta last week, but my workout buddy's daughter got sick and my husband got home from Afghanistan, so we both slacked off at the end of the week (after 9.5 weeks of perfect Focus!). But we're re-doing our last week now, and I'm excited about how fit I feel. I blasted through Rip't Circuit this a.m. with 12 lb weights and barely broke a sweat. I'll prob be looking at starting something new after I get back from vacation. She has P90x, P90x2 and Insanity, so we're going to try see what we can make time for in our schedules.

I don't see the same calorie burn as Insanity. Not even close. My HRM (Polar) shows usually somewhere around 230 - 300. Insanity was pretty much always well over 400 with 700 on the days when you do abs after. BUT (and yes, it's a big one), I just started T25 seriously this week. So I sometimes end up standing there staring at my TV trying to figure out what he's doing next. LOL I can feel it is working though. I took a month off after finishing Insanity and I'm feeling that month. My abs in particular are complaining, in a good sore kind of way. I'm not sure I'll see 400s out of Alpha T25. But it definitely is working. As a runner, I think it is great for cross training. Not so intense that it makes running hard. I couldn't run as much as I wanted to with Insanity. My legs were too beat up. I don't have that problem with T25. I can handle 25 mins of intensity. :-)

I'm fortunate to be going to school, surrounded by quitters ^_^
I've gotten a TON of bulk workout programs for pennies on the dollar since people buy them, stop using them, then gotta move back home and need to get rid of them NOW
They're not always complete, and usually don't come with the 'extras', but hey! I was literally given Insanity cuz a friend was leaving, and bought ChaLean Xtreme a few weeks back i a bulk thing that included some no name toss stuff and Jillian Michels for the equvalent of $30
I'm sure T25 will show up soon (the glory of transcontinental flight baggage limits ^_^), just needed to know if I should even bother buying it.

No problem, Alorta.
Yeah, I know, I felt the same way when I heard it was only 25 minutes. I thought "there is no way you can burn as much as Insanity!" lol
I actually attribute getting my calorie numbers to my Energy & Endurance supplement, because it gives me a little rush of adrenaline and helps me push a lot more than without it, so it helps my calorie burn!
The content is like Insanity but in short bursts. A move that you would do in Insanity for 1 minute, you would do it for 30 seconds but with something else added in to up the intensity.
It is A LOT of cardio and when he says 25 minutes straight, it is 25 minutes straight! lol
I can send you a clip of it so you can get a better idea so let me know if you want to see it.
Honestly, being a coach, I have tried many of the Beachbody programs and although many of my friends have gotten great results with a lot of the other longer ones, they were never for me.
I am very happy that I found this one because it makes it very hard to come up with an excuse to not work out lol
25minutes-yeah I've got time for that :)

Thank you so much for the info!
I've been doing Insanity on and off for about a year now, but I'm a bit worried that I'm getting too used to those workouts (especially month 1 stuff). I'm not quite getting your numbers, but I was thinking T25 a *tad* too good to be true.
I will have to look into it some more ^_^
Is the content Insanity-like? Or is it more of a mix of strength and cardio vs Insanity?

Hi Alorta,

I've done both programs and I use a Polar Heart rate/Calorie monitor so I have been able to compare my results for both programs. I have to tell you that I was pretty skeptical about Focus T25 burning as many calories as Insanity but I hope that it was true because I rather work out for 25 minutes than 45 :)
I have been pleasantly surprised! I can burn anywhere from 380-400 calories with Focus T25 and I can burn anywhere from 400-420 with Insanity.
So, the results are close enough that I will stick with the Focus T25! :)

Hi Nancy,
It all depends how comfortable you feel with 25 continuous minutes of cardio. It sounds like you are pretty comfortable with it if you run. There is a modifier in the video that shows you how to do all the moves with less impact.
If you are active, you should be able to do it even if you modify some of the moves.
I can send you a clip of the actual workout so you can get an idea of what it entails. Send me a message with your e-mail if you are interested. :)

So, Beta is not as bad as I expected it to be. It's actually really fun! I'm finishing up my second week tomorrow and I haven't died yet, so that's good! Still haven't lost any more weight, but I've been getting compliments on the changes in my shape. Stupid me didn't think it was important to take my measurements at the beginning. I also stunned my friends at Jazzercise with my full out military-style pushups during our set today. So yeah, I think it's working!

Hi - I am Day 3 of Week 3 with Alpha. I love them all except Lower Focus and I are still at odds. Hurts my knees for some reason. I do the modified. I have lost 2.8 pds and 3.5 inches! I am pretty excited about it. I wish the scale would move more - and I know it is my own doing. I am starting over with the calorie counting tomorrow and I know it will help immensely! Now could one of you come take the tortillas chips and salsa out of my hands emoticon ???

I start week 4 today of Alpha! I haven't seen HUGE changes, but then again, I don't have much by way of weight loss to lose, but I've been about .5lbs down each week which is reasonable for me.

I'm so anxious for Beta though :)

Kendilynn, don't worry, I am sure you will be ready! As far as weight loss, I have a friend who is also doing it and she hasn't lost weight so much as inches. So its different for everyone. Keep at it and keep me posted. :)

Hi Ferncrest,
Alpha is the 1st stage of Focus T25, it lasts about 5 weeks. Then comes Beta for another 5 weeks. 10 weeks total. Its tough but it helps that its only 25 minutes if my day b/c with 2 kiddies & a hubby, it gets hard to find time to work out!

Awesome! I start Beta tomorrow, and I'm a little scared. I haven't had much in the way of weight loss, and I failed to take "before" pics/measurements, but I'm hoping to see more results in the second half.

I am on week 2 of Alpha in Focus T25 & I just checked my stats...and..I'm soooo happy!
I'm down 2 pounds (in 2 weeks) and 2 inches around my waist!!!! It's been so long since I've gotten results like these and I was pretty skeptical about getting results with only 25 minutes a day BUT I believe now!! lol
I've been very careful with my diet & getting all my water so I am sure that everything combined helped!
So excited for my next Staturday-check in!! :)
