They're all great ideas, thank you! I decided on sticking with my original plan, which was to use Brazil Butt Lift (great and fun dance-oriented workout dvd set that focuses on the lower body), while incorporating Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 3-5 days of the week. That way by doubling up I'm getting the same calorie burn but now with a focus more on resistance training than cardio. I LOVE running but unfortunately a pretty busy semester of school is coming up fairly shortly so I probably won't have much time to train. Thanks again for the input emoticon

Any interest in Running? or doing a Triathlon?
I myself have completed the insanity and i know you will not get another type of workout that pushes you over the edge and then some, but maybe try to do a 5k, 10k or half marathon...you will get the same calorie burn per workout but you will definitely miss the Heart rate shooting to 85-90% level and then resting as the sweat drips down your face! I am swithing to running for Cardio and weight training for definition and i will do one or two days of Insanity sport dvd or a recovery dvd.
Good luck

Check out www.bodyrock.tv

Daily workouts posted based on intervals of HIIT, similar to insanity. These workouts are great because they push you both physically and mentally.

YES - I am the same way. Other workouts just didn't "cut it" after Insanity. I tried doing a round of P90X after and the cardio was just WAY too slow! I got bored & never got the kind of calorie burn or results I was used to with Insanity. You can always try a hybrid program which incorporates the cardio of Insanity with the strength training of another program (some use P90X or ChaLean Extreme). Some people also say TurboFire is comparable but I've never personally tried it.

Other workouts that I found were awesome after Insanity were CrossFit (what the dudes in the movie "300" used to train), training for distance running (using my Insanity endurance to run a 5K and now I'm training for a 10K), Zumba, Jillian Michael's Making The Cut - there's lots out there than can work for you! I promise!

I totally understand how you feel. Nothing compares, it is like Insanity is calling your name again and again. I finished 3 rounds and now I'm doing Insanity Asylum. It is different workout it has strenght workout with weigths. Different focus and intensity than Insanity but still crazy. This program is 30 days but offers combination of Asylum and Insanity and Asylum and P90X which can give about 90 more days of working different programs.

Anyone else feel this way after finishing Insanity and trying to start another workout routine? I just recently finished the Insanity program and started another routine which is more focused on toning, but I feel myself already missing the intensity level of Insanity. I guess after 2 months of completely pushing my body and mind to their ultimate best, it's been a hard transition for me slowing down the pace. Maybe I should try something different with the same intensity level? I wanted to focus now more on gaining definition / losing body fat since I'm almost close to my goal weight. Suggestions? :)
