“Tabata upper body shreds your chest. Shaun T kept my body guessing. I never plateaued and each day was harder then the last.”

“I love the freedom that MAXing out gives me. It doesn’t mean I’ve failed, it means I’ve succeeded in pushing myself to the limit.”
Jeof Vita

“I love that it makes me feel strong and athletic. I also love the mental component. You have to push hard so you can focus on the workout and let go of everything else.”
Julie Voris

“The intensity. I’m enjoying pushing my body past its limits. It’s a mindset shift that makes me feel like a complete badass athlete.”
Amy Silverman

What was the hardest part about the program?

“I didn’t think I could make it to 10 or 11 minutes, but I refused to give up and eventually made it past 12 minutes!”
Tricia Cramer

“Doing the things I used to struggle with. I could barely do push-ups before I started the program, but now I’m so much stronger.”
Dea Myers

“Having only 30 seconds of rest. But I felt so good after from all the sweat.”
Quaz Sheikh

“You have to learn to accept that you’re going to hit a wall and you will need to stop for a second and regroup. And that’s OK.”
Jeof Vita

“All of it! But when you go past the point you stopped the day before, you feel like you can accomplish anything.”
Julie Voris

“Getting over mental boundaries. You need to realize it’s all in your head and that you CAN keep going.”
Amy Silverman

How does this compare to other Shaun T programs you’ve done?
“MAX:30 combines the fast-paced athletic moves I loved from INSANITY® and the non-stop pace of FOCUS T25®. It’s the best of both worlds!”
Tricia Cramer

“The moves are different and so is the modifier—huge plus!”
Dea Myers

“It’s somewhat like INSANITY, but Shaun T has taken the old moves and made them a lot harder.”
Quaz Sheikh

“It’s different because it invites you to ‘fail’ and MAX out. There’s something very liberating about that.”
Jeof Vita

“It’s similar in style and I love that it’s only 30 minutes. This program has a modifier which makes it doable for all fitness levels.”
Julie Voris

“It’s definitely the most intense yet. It’s INSANITY on steroids. I hope everyone is ready for what Shaun T is about to put down.”
Amy Silverman

Did anything surprise you about the workout?

“How fast I could MAX out! It had me drenched in sweat and completely out of breath in less than six minutes!”
Tricia Cramer

“Shaun T is full of surprises in this workout! Just when I thought one day was tough, the next day was even harder.”
Dea Myers

“The new moves forced me to push myself further and further.”
Quaz Sheikh

“How quickly it forces you to assess your own physical shape.”
Jeof Vita

“How doable, yet hard it is. I’m also surprised by how creative Shaun T is with the exercises and how fast the 30 minutes flies by.”
Julie Voris

“I surprised myself! Being in the test group has given me a newfound sense of commitment to doing my absolute best.”
