Insanity

          If you’re starting a workout program that calls itself “Insanity,” you know it’s going to be over the top. This is one of the most challenging fitness programs on the market. Insanity is a total body workout that requires no gym or equipment using your own body weight for resistance instead. The program is based on a fitness method called “max interval training. Max interval training has you work as hard as you can for 3-minute intervals, with 30-second periods of rest in between. Exercising at this extreme intensity level will help you burn up to 1,000 calories an hour. Class is good for any fitness level since modifications will be shown for all exercises.  Courtney Lesnick is a certified Insanity instructor. Bring a yoga mat. Ages 14+. Class is on Tuesdays, June 26-July 31, from 9:30-10:30 am at the GEARS Community Center (70 South Poplar Street, Elizabethtown) with a fee of $35 for members ($42 non-members.
