Shaun T Speaker Profile
Founder of the Insanity Workout Program
Shaun T Biography
Shaun T. was born Shaun T.ompson on May 2, 1978 and is an American fitness trainer and choreographer best known for his Insanity and Hip-Hop Abs home fitness programs for adults and children. Shaun is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds.
Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon launched the Beachbody fitness company in 1998, and had early success in 2001 with Power 90, an in-home boot camp-style program and later with P90X, hosted by fitness guru Tony Horton. Beachbody was looking to augment their line of fitness DVDs with an intense workout, and Thompson answered the call with what would become the "Insanity" series, which was released in 2009. It was dubbed 'the hardest workout put on DVD' and sold via infomercials. Insanity is a workout regimen similar to P90X in that it claims to improve fitness through strenuous stamina, but is meant to be tougher than P90X in that it delivers results in only 60 days (as opposed to the 90-day regimen in P90X). Insanity's advertising emphasizes "max interval training", a method of exercising during which one works out strenuously for 3–4 minutes and then rests or "cools down" for approximately 30 seconds before starting the whole process over again. This is essentially a reversal of traditional interval training, during which participants exercise rigorously for 30 seconds and then cool down for 3–4 minutes.
Shaun T.s first work for Beachbody was released in 2006. The majority of the workout plan was designed to target abdominal muscles in different ways. Sold via informercial, they also came with a nutrition guide, a workout calendar and 24-hour online support. In 2007 it was the top selling workout video in the United States.
Thompson's fitness programs, along with associated gear and nutritional supplements, are sold mainly by mail order, marketed by parent-company Beachbody and a network of authorized affiliates, as well as through infomercials.
