- Blonde Ariel- you are THE most annoying member of the Insanity workout posse. Whenever Shaun T tries to talk to you during the workouts you can't breathe and you just squeak like a damn chipmunk. ugh. You have a belly button piercing....really? who still has these? (She's the white girl in the back right of the photo trying to look tough...barf) I also really dislike most, no make that all, of your facial expressions. So annoying and I can't help look because you're like a train wreck.
- Speaking of not being able to talk when Shaun T talks to you during the workouts....NOTE TO SHAUN T, all your Insanity posse is tired! So while you're NOT working out and trying to interview them don't make them talk. It's super annoying. I can't breathe. They can't breathe. And you're simply supervising!
- Shaun T when you're tired you can't even talk straight. Sometimes you tell me to touch my knee to my knee when you mean touch my forearm to my knee. You forget what move is next and repeat the exercises/stretches out of order. You have cue cards! How hard is it?
- It's not motivating to hear the leader of the Insanity posse say he's nervous for the Pure Cardio workout. Shaun T, if your ripped ass is nervous then I should be shitting my pants. I just sat an entire day in my work chair, I'm tired, not in as good of shape as you, and I'm not super excited about running home to workout with you...don't make it worse.
- Akeel, I'm sorry I don't know how to spell your name. As many times as I've heard Shaun T yell it because you're quitting during drills you would think I could spell it. You are as ripped as Shaun T but your functional strength is lackluster.
- Brown-haired white girl, I swear your name is Ariel too so maybe I have an aversion to the name, but you my friend make me want to hit the mute button. When Shaun T approaches you to workout together and motivate the group you yell every 3rd kick. Why? The camera man even hates you because when you shout like a devil woman she/he pans the camera down to your legs. Get a clue.
- Josh, you can't even stretch correctly. When Shaun T has to come over and help "straighten you out" it makes the rest of us stay in uncomfortable positions for longer. This is when I have to go rogue stretch just to keep my sanity. Get with the program.
- Chris, I just feel bad for you. You're a muscle machine but you have no flexibility. I'm just glad Shaun T doesn't pick on you. I like you.
- It's creepy that I know all your names. Really creepy.
- Shaun T, quit selling your magic recovery formula. Water is the perfect recovery formula.
- Shaun T, please bring enough of your recovery formula to finish the workout. It's your program and it's weird when you have to share with your Insanity posse.
- Shaun T, it's obvious you're sleeping with Tanya in your Insanity posse. I'm not sure you would mix work and pleasure. It's awkward.
- Most annoying of all is that I have to relive all these annoying things because they were all captured on video. So Josh you're always stretching wrong, Ariel is always a train wreck, and Akeel keeps quitting. Yep, the video never changes.
3/29/13 UPDATE: It's been over a year since I wrote this blog. The number of views and comments have amazed me. So many of the comments are just so hateful. Most commenters fail to read the multiple times I state how I'm addicted to this program and the results and that I've completed the program numerous times. Many commenters state how they are sure I'm a "fat, whiney, bitch who probably sits on the couch all day and feeds my face" and they provide the update that Shaun T is gay. It's still alarming to get emails weekly from complete strangers, most who post as 'anonymous' (read as coward), with such hateful comments.
Let me set the record straight:
1. I'm a 5'9" female who weighs 145 lbs. SO I'm not a fat ass feeding my face.
2. I'm a former college athlete.
3. Sometimes I am a bitch. We all are; however, this blog was more about observations.
4. I'm a researcher, observing things is what I do for a living.
5. I'm gay. I really don't care if Shaun T is gay.
