I have tried insanity, its not for me - I think it might shatter my knees but I am up for low impact cardio and strengthening. Has anyone tried this and can tell me more? I can't find much other than promotional type stuff. Its expensive so want to make a wise purchase if I go ahead! thanks!

I love it, although I know other posters on here have been less keen on it. It seems some Pilates fans find it too yoga-ish, and vice versa!

I mix it in with other forms of exercise - combination of gym classes, and DVDs (mostly Beachbody eg T25, Turbofire) which are faster-paced. I haven't followed the programme on its own so can't comment on what results, if any, that would give.

I have noticed a big difference in balance, flexibility, and core strength since I've been doing it. And a general sense of wellbeing. And I love Chalene (cheesy though she is) which helps.

Thanks for that - I don't know if I prefer yoga or pilates, I like both, so it might be ideal for me after all!
