AM I insane or an insaniac? By Sam Riley, Ad Manager, Henley Standard
Insanity is the hottest new exercise regime to hit the UK. Founded in the USA, Beachbody launched Insanity in this country earlier this year and the craze that swept America is certainly causing a bit of a stir here!
Local instructor Emma-Jane Taylor runs numerous Insanity classes at Expert Fitness in Bell Street, Henley, for those who are brave or insane enough to take part. Emma-Jane also runs Stageworks dance and drama school, is a fitness trainer and a nutrition and weight management consultant.
Having been asked to take part in an Insanity class I suddenly find myself signed up for an 11-week course. Am I insane? The name is enough to put fear into the hearts of mere unfit mortals like myself, but after a summer of no exercise and too much food and drink what have I got to lose?
As part of the course Emma-Jane offers a weightloss and nutrition programme providing weekly eating plans and a weekly weigh-in. Great for those of us who have no will power whatsoever and need the notion of a weekly weigh-in to spur them on.
