It is an intense program that is designed for those that want to bring their level of fitness and/or sports to the next level. If you think that it might be too much for you, begin with the Insanity Workout first and then graduate to the Asylum.

It’s impossible to skip over them and assume that you’ll be successful. However, although the techniques used by Shaun T in the DVD’s are relatively new, participants have found all sorts of benefits ranging from weight loss and getting in better shape to increased performance on the field.


Personal Review: I think that the Asylum is an amazing workout for anyone, athlete or not. However, as an athlete I find it fitting to speak to athletes that are thinking about trying Asylum. The program is designed to maximize your abilities and transform you into the most explosive and motivated athlete possible. It caters to all of your needs as an athlete, from speed and agility to strength and power and even vertical leap. It literally is the whole package. It’s interesting, it’s dynamic, it’s engaging, and it’s proven. There’s literally no way you can go through the program and not see results. It’s impossible. As for anyone else that is considering Asylum (i.e. non-athletes and the like), I would still recommend it if you’re looking for a great workout. Asylum is a wonderful complement to any other workouts you might have done or might be doing. It’s simply the best.
