The Insanity workout, similar to P90X, was originally designed as DVD program done at home. 

Participants are pushed to go "all out" with plyometric moves like the Double Diamond, Stance Jacks, Hit the Floor, Power Jump, The Heisman and Switch Kick. 

Now, the intense regimen has moved to the gym setting.

At Cardinal's Fitness Center, certified Insanity Instructors lead their classes through max intervals of cardio, strength, and power move blocks.

There are short, 30-second breaks in between blocks which helps build a fast recovery time.  


Beth Cardinal, Owner and Insanity Instructor, said there are many benefits to ditching the DVD and trying out a group class.

Cardinal said in a class setting, it's easier to be motivated and less likely to give in to a distraction at home.

In addition, a certified instructor can monitor form to help participants avoid injury and also offer modifications for every move. 

Cardinal said they're starting off with a 30 minute Insanity class and have plans to incorporate a 50 minute class in the group fitness schedule.
