FOCUS T25 Base Kit
Meet the Trainer - Shaun T
Born Shaun Thompson, Shaun T first made a name for himself as a track-and-field star at Rowan University, where he received a BS in Sports Science with a minor in Theater and Dance.
Since then he's put both degrees to epic use—appearing on HBO's Six Feet Under, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CNN, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Good Morning America, and The Doctors—and working with Nike, Boost Athletic Shoes, RadioShack, and the LA Lakers.
In 2007, Shaun T decided to turn the fitness world upside down by creating the phenomenally successful dance-based workout, Hip Hop Abs. Then, just a year later, he developed another big hit—Rockin' Body— as well as Shaun T's Fit Kids Club and Get Real with Shaun T, which helped children across the nation combat obesity and get fit.
Then in 2009, Shaun T and Beachbody took it all to another level by launching insanity, a 60-day total-body conditioning workout renowned for being insanely challenging—and incredibly effective.
Over the next few years, the Insanity workout series continued to grow with the launch of Insanity: The Asylum, the first in-home, sports-specific training program based on drills used by pro athletes; and The Asylum Volume 2—the next 30 days of jaw-dropping, competition-crushing workouts.
In 2013, Shaun T again revolutionized the fitness industry by creating the world’s most efficient workout program ever: Focus T25.
It’s about time.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My strategy for the competition was to follow the T25 routine closely and lose a bit each weigh-in. I did not follow the diet of the biggest loser program nor the diet set out by T25 very closely. The diet I chose was a bit of a combination of the ideas found in both along with some freedom of choice and tons of water. Both recommended less than 2000 calories and suggested various healthy foods so I just used that as my daily guide.
T25 is an intense cardio workout with a few strength building exercises. Lots of sweat and high heart rates. I wouldn't say it's the best workout for gaining muscle but it is supposed to be good for losing fat. The main idea of T25 is constant movement, no breaks. If you are tired, follow the modified move. I still find myself needing to take a second or two in between some moves, it's just a bit too much at times. The move progression in each video is great. For example you start with a jog for about 30 seconds, move into a squat move for another 30 seconds and afterwards, do a running squat move. Each move leads to the next. I thought that was well done.
The whole program is split into two phases: Alpha and Beta. As of this writing I have just finished my second week of Beta. Alpha is 90% cardio workouts, all aimed at getting your heart rate up and sweating like crazy. Beta introduces some upper body muscle training. Each workout has a 'Burnout Round' which is usually the hardest moves all in a row. Every fifth day there is a 'Double Day' (2 workouts). I would do the extra workout from time to time. The sixth day is a rest day and the seventh is a stretch routine. I suggest doing some kind of exercise on the sixth day like going for a walk or something. It's hard to sleep without doing something. Each video is a 25 minute workout with a 3 minute cooldown stretch right afterwards so it should actually be called T28ish.
I will list each exercise and my thoughts on them. I will also assign some ratings to the from 1-5 (1 being the lowest).
Alpha Cardio: Difficulty - 3. Introduces you to many of the moves that are used throughout T25. Mostly running, jumping and squats. Virtually no upper body work at all. Is still pretty tough after a while, it caught me off guard in the last week of Alpha. I thought "wow this is still not that easy."
Speed 1.0: Difficulty - 1.5, Fun - 5. This is probably one of my favorite workouts. It goes to the music nicely, there are stretches in between moves and it is still a decent burn. It didn't happen too often but on days where I had some extra time and energy, I would fit this workout in as extra. It's pure cardio again but lower intensity.
Total Body Circuit: Difficulty - 5. Even after a few Beta workouts, I contend that Total Body Circuit is the most difficult (for me anyway). So much cardio. Even on the strength moves have a cardio element to them. A regular push-up? Not a chance. Plank walk to push up to squat position? Check. This workout is killer and I am still afraid of it. The last week of Alpha schedules this workout three times. THREE TIMES. Doesn't seem to get much easier either.
Ab Intervals: Difficulty - 2. Pretty laid back. Get it? This workout is a little bit of cardio and for the rest of the time you are spending on you back or your butt working out the abs. Not a terribly difficult workout but your abs do get a really crazy burn afterwards. Another workout that I could fit in as extra if I wanted.
Lower Focus: Difficulty - 4: Harder than regular cardio but not as bad as Total Body Circuit. Mostly lunging and squatting. Not very fun.
Stretch: Difficulty - 2.5. T25 introduced me to 'active stretching.' You flex a muscle while in position and then let it go. It seemed to make me more flexible actually but some of them can be hard to do. This also helped me with my balance. Still not perfect, but I did get better.
Beta is not as bad as I thought it would be. I think Alpha prepared me pretty well. There are some lifting exercises and T25 comes with a resistance band but it really is not good, especially when you are working out in your living room without shoes since you have to step on the band to hold it down. It also hits your wrist in some positions which is annoying. I went and grabbed some dumbbells right away. Here are my thoughts so far:
Core Cardio: Difficulty - 4. All the hardest cardio moves from Alpha and then some. Tough cardio but not impossible.
Speed 2.0: Difficulty - 4. This one is interesting. There are a few long sets of moves that you repeat a few times, a bit like Insanity. Really good cardio workout. Kind of fun actually but not quite as much as Speed 1.0.
Rip'T Circuit: Difficulty - 4. Rip't Circuit is supposed to be Total Body Circuit 2.0 but there is a bit more slower strength parts which makes it a bit easier. I really like this workout because of the lifting moves. It's nice to have a break from cardio.
Dynamic Core: Difficulty - 3.5. I thought it would be similar to Ab Intervals but in Dynamic Core you are on your feet most of the time, not laying down on the ground. It's basically a cardio workout but Sean T makes you think more about the core. To be honest I'd rather do the Ab Interval workout instead.
Upper Focus: Difficulty: 4.5. This is my favorite workout from Beta. Mostly lifting and some ab workouts. It's so fun to build some upper body muscles instead of hopping around all the time. It's just a nice touch of variety. Some strength moves are pretty tough - even more so if your weights are pretty big. I only use 10 lb dumbbells and it's really tough after several moves.
Overall the workouts are killer while you are doing them and I quite enjoyed the fact that it was only about a half hour long everyday. The one complaint I have is that the stretches are too short and I don't feel very stretched out after the cooldown or even the stretch video.
I did the scheduled workout everyday since it was easy to fit into a time slot. I think I only missed one and that was after of my biggest loser competition. I am very happy with the results so far. I get excited about working out everyday since I get such a huge feeling of accomplishment after only 30 minutes. It's pretty addictive and has taken over my video game addiction.
T25 has my recommendation for sure. Get dumbbells and modify whenever necessary.
After the second time through Beta I found my results starting to taper off/plateau a bit. I did still lose just over 7 pounds in the second time through for a total loss (after Alphax2 and Betax2) of 36 pounds.
I noticed progress more quickly in Beta (in terms of some of the strength exercises) than with Alpha. Aside from that, my first Beta review holds true.
I have purchased Gamma so my reviews for that will be coming in a couple weeks. I hope this has been helpful to some!
The main takeaway I have in addition to my original comments, now that I've done Beta, is that Beta isn't as difficult as I expected when compared to Alpha. I can basically mark "nailed it" on all of them.
I am in the camp of folks who prefer using freeweights to using the band that comes with this. Some exercises are fine with the band, but the walking squats? the butterfly? They make zero sense using the band imo.
I feel like Beta is great for someone who would go to the gym and just do a light circuit on weightmachines. If you're looking to really build mass - this isn't for you. You'll hit the major groups but not to the extent where you'll be exhausted in any single area. If you're looking for something to help get you back into the gym to lift, this could be a perfect phase for you.
Beta is also easier on the knees for me.
I lost a touch over 8 pounds with Beta but admittedly had a vacation in the middle where I added a week to the program and also ate without diet in mind at all. That puts 15 week total loss at 29 pounds.
I plan to do Beta again and then move on to Gamma.
After Finishing Alphax2
I have finished Alpha a second time and absolutely saw results and improvements. In the 5 weeks of the program a second time, I lost 11 more pounds this time through (so 21 in 10 weeks total thus far). Things I couldn't come close to doing when I first started (2 minutes of jack feet/jumping jacks for instance) are no problem now. I read over my initial review and most of it stands, specifically for someone out of shape, so I left most below.
After 10 weeks of Alpha, I still can't mark "nailed it" on most because of a few moves in each that are still too tough for me (Oblique Knee Pushups in Total Body Circuit, or Low Lunge Pulse->Hold on Lower Focus for instance), but I can make it through most everything now without stopping where I couldn't before. I still do more and different stretching than the cool down so it definitely takes me more like 35 minutes each day.
I'm on day 3 of Beta and I'm surprised to see these first 3 have been the easiest so far - not at all what I was expecting considering I can't do all of the Alpha workouts perfectly. Will update once I'm through Beta. I hope something here is helpful to someone!
Initial Review after Alpha
It has been years since I have been in a gym and I bought this because of the 30 minute (er, 25) per day idea. In short, so far so good.
The workouts are tough for me. I have not done Insanity or any other video like this before. My advice to those folks, if you can get through "Cardio" on day 1 with a "nailed it" then it's probably too easy for you unless you're just using it just for some variety. I'm here for the people who are overweight or out of shape (or both) and wondering if this is a good buy while also trying to touch on a few things other reviews haven't.
The workouts are (mostly) hard.
It works - at the end of Alpha I have lost exactly 10 pounds
It is short and tough, as advertised.
The modifier is sometimes too easy or too hard.
It is incredibly focused on the lower body.
It is tough on the lower body joints.
Random other details:
Are you wondering if it'll be too much on your knees etc.? There is the modifier, but many times, even on day 1, if I moved to the modifier I'd be thinking "is this REALLY getting me results, just stepping one leg to the side?" or others it's still squatting etc. and not much easier so I would just push to do as much of the others as I could.
Worried about your knees/shins/ankles and don't want to follow the modifier? Can you do jumping jacks at about 1.5/second for 2 minutes? High knee running in place on your toes for 2 minutes? Squats? Jumping/hopping squats? Lunges? Jump rope? Try it now before buying because you'll do all of those on day 1 in Cardio. If those things hurt your _____ I'm betting the moves in the set will too.
Both male and female models in Alpha are like regular fit folks you'd see in the gym - the guys are in t-shirts and the ladies in sports bras (some guys in Beta are the jacked up shirtless 0.02% body fat body builder types). Just saying this as I'm sure some folks like looking at this while it is de-motivational for others.
There are commercials after every video, I just stop the dvd.
The Shakeology add doesn't bother me 1) because you can skip it (hit play, skip and done, quit complaining) 2) i let it play to loosen up for 30 second to get ready for the workout.
After 5 weeks, I can only mark "nailed it" (vs. barely made it) on two workouts - Speed 1.0 and Ab Intervals* (not counting Stretch)
Speed 1.0 because he breaks for stretches/stability frequently and those little breaks are what I need to make it through (absent on the other discs).
*Ab Intervals I can't do a few of the moves well because I'm not quite flexible enough and my leg stamina isn't there for some of the moves - the ab/core only moves I've got down.
The nutrition plan does not work for me. I follow a weight watcher style approach so did not ever feel starved, ate normal food (albeit less and added healthier options and cut out fast food) and otherwise kept things normal. It's very "common sense" which is why I give 4 stars not 5. It's a good set, it's as advertised, and if you can't push yourself to do 25 minutes of jumping jacks, squats etc. etc. on your own (like I can't) it's great. But I'm betting it's not much different than 25 minutes of fast circuit training in your gym or a local boot camp type class. It's no magic bullet, but it does what it says.
I hope some of this was helpful to someone. Good luck!
