Insanity Max 30 Review


When I first started the Insanity program, I honestly wasn’t a fan. It’s no fun doing an intense cardio workout when you’re a chubby guy. However, after finishing my first round of Insanity, I got hooked and did multiple rounds afterward. But as time went on, and my work schedule changed, it became difficult to do the hour-long workouts. So, I scrolled through Beachbody’s catalog to find a shorter workout that can give me great results. Imagine my surprise (and delight) to discover Insanity Max 30.

Product Overview

Insanity Max 30 is Insanity jammed pack into 30 minutes. Shaun T took the best from his previous workouts and condensed it into Insanity Max 30. Max 30 follows a similar setup as Insanity. It’s broken down into Month 1 and Month 2 categories. The only difference is that you time yourself during every workout. When you start each workout, you go for as long as you can, then you mark down the time you took your first break or when you “Max Out”. The goal is to go further each time you do the exercises. In a sense, all the workouts are like fit tests.

The Workouts

Month 1 

Cardio Challenge

This workout introduces to the program and also serves as your fit test. This workout is so intense, that I only made it halfway through the warm-up before maxing out the first time doing this.

Tabata Power

Tabata Power starts your strength training. It features a workout structure of exercising intensely for 20 seconds, then 10 seconds of cooling down.

Sweat Intervals

If you thought Cardio Challenge was tough, get ready for Sweat Intervals. Just as the name says, you will be a sweaty mess when it’s all over.

Tabata Strength

Tabata Strength takes it up a notch from a Tabata Power. You still have the same “20 seconds on, 10 seconds off” workout structure. However, there are no rest breaks. That’s right, no rest break for 30 minutes. The good news, you won’t be doing this workout until your halfway through Month 1

Friday Fight: Round 1

Friday Fight: Round 2 will really put you to the test. All the other workouts were just preparation for this. Do you have what it takes to win the fight?

Month 2 

Max Out Cardio

Ready to take your cardio training to the next level? Then you’re ready for Max Out Cardio. You’ll be doing circuit training just like with Cardio Challenge, but you will have a 1-minute power move to do after each circuit.

Max Out Power

In Max Out Power, you follow the same workout structure as Tabata Power and Tabata Strength. However, you’ll be working out for 45 seconds, and cooling off 15 seconds.

Max Out Sweat

If you thought you were a sweaty mess after doing Sweat Intervals, then you haven’t seen anything yet. With the addition of the 1-minute power after each interval, your shirt will be completely drenched by the time you’re done.

Max Out Strength

Max Out Strength’s “45 seconds on, and 15 seconds off” workout structure will leave your legs and arms shot, and begging for mercy.

Friday Fight: Round 2

You made it through round 1, and now it’s time for round 2. Friday Fight: Round 2 is the hardest workout in the program, and will put you through the ultimate test between your mind and your body.


Ab Attack:10

This 10-minute ab routine will help shred and make those abs pop

Max Out Abs

A 15-minute ab routine where you will alternate between standing and seated movements to work out your core.

360° Abs

Another 15-minute ab routine on the floor while doing a 360° workout on your core.

My Experience With Insanity Max 30

At first, I honestly thought I couldn’t get a good workout in only 30 minutes. Boy, was I wrong. I was drenched after every workout. The best part of it was that each workout was over before I knew it.


  • It’s only 30 minutes. You pop in the DVD, you get in and get out before you know it.
  • The workout is not just cardio. It has a strength and core element to it as well. You will be working out your entire body with this program
  • Each exercise comes with a modified version. If you’re a little nervous to do them, or at any time the moves become too intense, Shaun T has included a low-impact version of them so that anyone can do the program


So far, I’ve not found any downsides to this program. I give Insanity Max 30 a 10 out of 10

  1. I like your logo man it’s sick. As a former personal trainer, this was definitely a program that I felt allotted people a quality workout in a short amount of time. I really liked this program also because research shows that a shorter more intense workout has much greater benefit than a drawn out slow one. Definitely agree with your rating, it’s really good.

  2. This was an insightful review William, very concise and to the point breakdown of all the features in each training. I’m certainly curious about the program, especially since I usually workout doing my own routine which is roughly 30-45 minutes. Perhaps you could elaborate more on some of the featured workouts?

  3. Hey, I was wondering how many days a week it’s recommended to do these exercises.

    I know it’s usually good practice to go for 5 or 6 days and take one or two off somewhere throughout the week but since these are only 30 min/day workouts maybe you can do it every day?

    Look forward to your response,


  4. Wow, another great article form you, you are encouraging everyone to do exercises which is a good thing to stay healthy. Keep up the good work👍👍👍

  5. Oh, yeah, man, bring it on!
    In whole honesty I was looking for a training program to implement. Mostly because I know that random, without goal workouts usually don’t lead anywhere, and won’t provide any meaningful results. So, I’m all up for it! <3
    A question though – is this program something that can be done at home or is there gym involved?

    Cheers! Thank you and have an awesome day!

    • Hey Matiss. Insanity is workout program you can do anywhere you have space. Not equipment required, except your body. Feel fre to do it at home, the gym or wherever you feel comfortable
