Focus T25 Review
It’s all about time…thats what Shaun T said at this years Coach Summit in Las Vegas. I had the opportunity to hear Shaun T speak on stage and give a full T25 Review. I was able to do the workout live with Shaun in Vegas and of course I bought Focus T25 myself and brought it home to do. Let me just lead out with this. This program is absolutely amazing! 10 Minute Trainer is a great short workout by Tony Horton, and you all know that Im a big fan of Tony, but I have to say, T25 is now the leader in the category of short workouts that PACK major RESULTS! In fact I would go as far to say that Focus T25 is even going to give the longer workouts a run for their money based on the results you’ll get!
The first question that I get asked is; is T25 like Insanity? While Shaun T was on stage giving the full Focus T25 review he specifically made mention that T25 can’t be compared to any of his workouts, because they are all made with different purposes. I’ll agree with that to some degree. As Anna and I did Focus T25 Alpha: Total Body this morning, we did some moves that I remember doing in Insanity. But let me say this, and maybe I should have lead out with this part at the beginning. T25 is all about you. You go as hard as you want or can, and even in doing that sometimes when Shaun wants you to go at your max its at a slower pace. Shaun T really was brilliant in the creation of this workout.
These workouts are all built on progressions. So you’ll start slow and progress up to whats call the burnout. In your progressions, it seemed to me and this is also how Shaun described it…when your doing a move and you reach that point of exhaustion he switches it up and you’ll go to a move that is working another muscle group or the same muscle but in a different way. Thats what makes this workout so great! Its not like Insanity in the fact that your dog tired by the end of the 2nd warm up and still have 1 more warm up to go!
There are NO BREAKS in T25. But like I said, your not pushing to the point of exhaustion with each move. The 25 minutes really flies by. The first 10 minutes seem like 30 seconds to me, and by that point Im drenched with sweat! Once I realize that I have 15 minutes left I really start to “Focus” hence the name, Focus T25.

Any age, any size, any level of fitness. 25 minutes! You can do it!
What’s Behind the Name Focus T25?
Well I pretty much gave it away in the last paragraph. Most people when they start working out are dreading the 50 minute to an hour workout. So they just kinda go through the motions and dilly dally around not really focused on getting the most out of their workout. Or they know that they’re already running behind and their mind is somewhere else thinking about the things they’re gonna have to catch up on from being behind on the long workout they have ahead of them. So they get half way through the workout and realize that they only have 20 to 30 minutes left and they haven’t even broken a sweat yet, or they may be exhausted, if you made it through the 3 warmups of Insanity and didn’t push so hard in the beginning after the warm up. So then they really start to “focus” on getting the most of the last part of the workout. That was the main idea behind creating this workout. You know going into it that you only have 25 minutes and your going to have to really focus on the time you’ve got and get the most out of the workout. Its kind of a psychological play, but hey, it works!
Insanity was too Hard on my Body. Is T25 anything like that?
Easy answer! NO! Shaun T actually spends more time up moving around, demonstrating form and the modified moves. That’s completely different from any of his other workouts. If you can remember Tonya from Insanity, she actually demonstrates all the modified moves for T25 so if there is something you don’t feel comfortable doing she will guide you in the modified moves. Believe me, they are just as challenging as the original moves but a little easier on the body. Don’t think for one second that the modified move wont get you the same results either. Tonya looks great in these workouts and actually just had a baby within years time.
Some of Insanity’s moves were a little hard to do and learn in the beginning because you might be on the floor at a weird angle and can’t really see whats happening on screen. Thats why Shaun is spending more time walking the floor then working out in these videos. You can feel confident while in a move that you’re doing it correctly because he will tell you exactly what you need to be doing. In fact he’ll tell you in some parts that your head should be down and not looking at the screen. He will give you specific, easy to follow examples that you’ll have no trouble following along and doing.
Do I need Equipment to do Focus T25?
Yes and no. With the “Original Package” T25 comes with the Alpha and Beta phases. Its a 60 day workout. No equipment other that you. Maybe a resistance band, but the pack comes with one. Once you’ve completed that 60 day cycle, you have the option to get the additional T25 phase called the T25 Gamma Phase. Want to get it done better and faster? Prepare to take on the next 4 weeks of FOCUS T25. These advanced GAMMA Cycle workouts and training tools were specially designed to burn more fat, and help you carve lean, strong muscles, fast. With the Gamma workouts you’ll have the option to use dumbbells and/or resistance bands.
Overall Thoughts and Review on T25
I think this is going to be the number 1 home workout for a while. You’re going to be able to lose weight, tone up, build muscle, strength and stamina. This is your perfect all-in-one, short home workout. With practically no equipment needed for the Alpha and Beta phases, this is the perfect workout for any person of gender. Any size and any age. Any occupation! What I mean is if you travel a lot, thats ok, take it with you. You can do this workout anywhere!
If you’re in perfect shape now, I challenge you to try T25. I bet it will be a bigger challenge than you think! And if you’re only a beginner and/or never worked out a day in your life, this is still the perfect program to start out on. And at only 25 minutes, 5 days a week you should have no excuses why you can’t do this workout.
I offer a ton of support while doing this workout to help you start it and finish it! It comes with an amazing nutrition guide thats easy to follow and of course I always recommend that you drink Shakeology regardless of doing a workout or not! Your body needs it! No where else can you get a daily dose of dense nutrition other than Shakeology! Stop waiting and take control of your life! Get this amazing workout and please, please, please come back to my site and tell me how much you love it!
