I did one insanity workout and I will be happy to never do another one lol. That program is just not for me. I would dread my workout everyday if I had to do that one.

I am currently doing "Rockin Body" and Shaun T made these ones, too. It can be intense and it's a really good workout and way more fun (and cheaper as I think it is still on sale).

Another one I did that is a really good fitness program is Turbo Jam with Chalene Johnson. It's more of the punching/kicking type thing.

You don't have to do 6 days a week, I follow the 6 day program but you can make it work for you and do every other day. The minimum is 3 days a wrek with at least half an hour of exercise on each of those days.

And when all else fails and there are certain moves you aren't up to doing yet... MODIFY MODIFY MODIFY!!!!! . Make your workout work for you

Also, Shaun T has a program coming out this summer called T25. A very intense workout and te videos are only 25 minutes long.

Those other DVDs sounds more likely to keep me going longer term

Not sure i like dancey ones though... I've done dancey type classes before and don't really enjoy them, butttttttt.... Maybe in my own home I would

Going to have a look!

You get one day off a week (day 3). And if you feel up to it or want to work harder, you just do more.

I've tried Insanity after completing P90X and was unable to get through the "fit test" without puking.

Like any program, you will get out of it what you put into it. If you work the program, follow the schedule and stick with it, you'll easily drop those 2 stones (well, not "easily" as the program is not "easy").
This one Eddie?

If you don't really like dancey then I highly recommend Turbo Jam or Turbo Fire. It will get you results, it's fun and it's more punching and kicking and Chalene is super fun and will keep you going

I didn't say this before but for the record.. to do insanity you have to be reasonably fit.
I don't want to put a hard number on it but I'd say capable for running a mile would be a good starting point I guess...

I have had friends who have tried insanity and thrown up and fainted and things like that. It is not a good first time workout program for someone who is inactive or isn't used to sweating/heart pumping exercise.

My first intense cardio day I thought I was going to faint

Try the fit test or cardio circuit on the links. Bearing in mind those are not the most difficult ones by far but if you can push through those you should be OK.

and it does need to be 6 days a week. I mean, you don't HAVE to do it..but it's very structured and 6 days just makes sense with the order of the workouts and everything.

I like insanity.
It isn't a fun workout lol by any means.
it involves quite a lot of me panting in the squat position swearing like a sailor and wishing death upon the TV.
but I love the results and I love pushing myself.
plus I hate dance workouts so this works. I don't feel like dancing workouts push me in the same way and I just don't feel as good after.

My sister bought p90x awhile back, so I tried that. I liked the workouts, but watching the same videos over and over bored me. They were so long, I felt like I was spending far too much time doing the same thing. I thought about getting insanity, but decided that I would probably get bored with it.

Plus, I found bodyrock/dailyhiit. It's a website with free workout videos. There are tons of options, so if I'm not feeling one workout I could just find another. And they're short. I like short. If I have more time then I'll combine a few different workouts or just do more rounds.

Since I don't have a daunting 60-90min (I was doing p90x, I believe insanity is shorter) video to follow, I'm also less likely to skip it. It's harder to say f it when the workout is only 15min or so.
