When I hear the word insomnia I think of infomercials. Why? Because a large percentage of people resort to TV as a way to put them to sleep. Well, I am guilty of this and unfortunately at 2 am the only thing on TV are infomercials. I always found humor in them because my first thought is only stupid people get suckered in actually believing the products being displayed work. Well, call my stupid because this past January I bought my first product off an infomercial. I use to play football in college, but after I was done playing I didn't want to become fat and lazy. I needed something that would keep me motivated, so one late night Shaun T's product Insanity popped onto the screen. I was very skeptical about buying exercise videos because there are so many, and according to people who were suckered in buying one, told me they didn't work. But I had a gut feeling Shaun T's product was legit. It's a 9-week intense cardio program and along with the DVDs it gives you a calendar and recipe book that lists easy healthy meals to prepare. Because of Spring Break and Finals I only completed 6 weeks of the program but I definitely saw results. I lost 2 inches off my waist and a total of 25 pounds. My body looked a lot tighter and I just felt healthier overall. The $120 was worth it and currently I am starting the program again; this time with no interruptions. The videos are great because Shaun T pushes and encourages you throughout the workout which is always a nice boost when you are dying and short of breath. The premise of the program is time-interval training which allows you to progress on your own pace, rather than having x-amount of sets with x-amount of reps.
Have you ever purchased a product off an infomercial? if Yes, what was it? and was it legit or a scam?
