It’s summer season and time to rev up your fitness and health! But with so many workout programs on the scene, how do you choose what’s right for you? Especially if you’re trying to get in shape for the police academy. As part of our spotlight series, we’re digging into the hottest workouts and delivering the sweaty info straight to you each week.
Today we’re focused on fitness powerhouse BeachBody. It’s more than a company; it’s a community that connects you to personal coaches cheering you on and likable instructors working out with you every step of the way. Best of all? It’s all condensed workouts you can do at home in between your study and prep time for the academy. Most of the videos are no more than 30 minutes but deliver ab-tastic results in just weeks (along with a healthy diet of course). The energetic programs are truly designed for people with busy lives who still want to put their health first. Now that’s we call bang for your buck.
That’s right, Shaun T is back with Beachbody’s brand new workout. As the creator of Insanity, dubbed the hardest workout put on a DVD, you can expect hardcore results with Cize. It’s a dance workout that targets cardio and tons of fun. Shaun T started his career as a backup dancer for Mariah Carey and incorporates those hip hop chops. You’ll learn full dance routines step-by-step while melting off the pounds. This is great for people new to dance or working out and for those wanting to change up their fitness routine. And most importantly you’ll have tons of fun.
The Insanity fitness program put Beachbody on the map and showed that even pro athletes would be sweating and sore by the end of this workout. It’s centered on max interval training to keep your body pushed to its max performance throughout the entire workout using only your own body weight. The program is designed for 60 days and is dubbed the hardest workout put on a DVD. It delivers mind-blowing results in record time.
This gateway program is excellent for those wanting to get started on their fitness but aren’t looking for the intensity of the P90x program. These simplified workouts are more doable but just as effective for any age or fitness level. The program is divided into three phases and you only advance to the next level once you’ve masted the necessary moves. You sculpt, sweat and of course finish off each workout with the famous ab ripper.
4. BODY BEAST
This laser focused program gets you ripped with muscle. And now you can perfect weight training from home! No more waiting for equipment at the busy gym.

Led by a champion builder, this program is awesome for those wanting to trim the fat and load on the chiseled muscle. Unleash the beast!
5. FOCUS T-25
Short on time? Then T-25 might be the perfect fit. It takes the intensity of the Insanity workouts and shaves them down to just 25 minutes a day for 5 days a week. Totally doable. It’s a realistic goal you can stick to, so you’ll see amazing results from the consistent commitment. It’s high intensity cardio, strength training, and core training all in one. You’ll be dripping sweat in minutes and have your workout checked off your list in just 25 minutes. That’s a win-win.
