My Focus T25 Review – Get Real Results Working Out 25 Minutes a Day

t25I’ve heard it a million times and have struggled with it as well – there is sometimes just Not Enough Time.

Not having enough time to drive to the gym and work out for an hour a day is no longer any kind of excuse to let yourself turn into a marshmallow.

Shaun T, the creator of the hottest at-home workout INSANITY, has released a new workout program named Focus T25. It really is the ultimate workout program for those of us who always seem to be short on time.

The premise of Focus T25 is five, 25-minute workouts, five times a week. These workouts are not Sweating to the Oldies dance type workouts. You are literally getting a high intensity workout that features dynamic exercise movements – without any breaks.

Studies Don’t Lie

Exercise science has come such a long way in only the last few years. Gone are the days when hour-long jogs and starvation diets were the way to burn fat fast. Shorter and higher intensity workouts have repeated been scientifically proven to burn fat at a faster rate than lower intensity workouts that last an hour.

Who Focus T25 Workouts Are Designed For

As I write this, I am on Day 2 of the Focus T25 workout, and all I can tell you is that this workout might be the best Beachbody program ever (besides my favorite BBL, of course!) The best part about it is that it really is suitable for the beginner (lower intensity move variations are shown throughout the entire workout) looking to get in shape or the advanced fitness junkie who wants to maintain their fitness level.

For someone who is looking to get back into the thick of working out, I give Focus T25 five plus stars.

The Focus T25 Workout Schedule

Focus T25 seems to be based on the umber five when it comes to the schedule. You work out five days a week for the first five weeks on what Beachbody has deemed the ALPHA PHASE. This phase preps you for the next five weeks. If this is prep, then I am slightly nervous to see what the BETA phase brings, lol.

The second phase of the Focus T25 workout calendar is called the BETA PHASE. Again, this phase of the program is five weeks long and you continue to work out five times a week. Beachbody is also featuring a third phase called the GAMMA phase ,which can be ordered separately for those who want to continue with the program after the first ten weeks are completed. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

What Kind of Results Can You Expect with Focus T25?

While it is still a little too early to tell you what kind of results I’ll get, no one other than test group participants have finished the program. I can tell you that this program is not only geared for weight loss, but you will build and tone  muscle also. I am already seeing more abs and more well-defined quads.

An Overview of the Focus T25 Workouts

From the ALPHA phase of Focus T25 we have:

  • Cardio
  • Speed 1.o
  • Total Body Circuit
  • Ab Intervals
  • Lower Focus

From the BETA phase:

  • Core Cardio
  • Speed 2.0
  • Rip-T Circuit
  • Dynamic Core
  • Upper Focus

The workout package also includes a Stretch DVD that incorporates both dynamic and static stretches. Can’t wait to do the Stretch DVD.

If you’re curious what you can expect with Focus T25, have a look below at what the  workouts look like, and what people are saying about the program already.

How to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck

When ordering Focus T25, you have two main options for purchasing.

Option 1:

  • The Focus T25 Base Kit – you get the 11 workouts listed above, plus the Quick-Start Guide, Get It Done Nutrtiton Guide, ALPHA-BETA workout calendars, 5-Day Fast Track, B-Lines Resistance Band, and 24/7 Online Supprt.

The price of the Base Kit is $119.85 and when you buy directly through Team Beachbody, you receive a free bonus workout called Core Speed. You will not be able to get the free bonus workout if you buy from anywhere but Team Beachbody. You can buy directly through Team Beachbody by clicking here.

Option 2:

  • Focus T25 Challenge Pack: with the Challenge Pack option, you get everything that is listed above in the Base Kit plus a 30-day supply of meal replacement shake called Shakeology.

The price of the Challenge Pack is $180. So, for about $60, you get a month supply of Shakeology, which is really not bad when you consider Shakeology normally costs $129.95 on its own. Again, you only receive the free Core Speed workout if you order directly through Team Beachbody, which you can do by clicking here.

Note: No matter what Focus T25 package you do end up choosing, you get a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied with anything at all. Plus, if you happen to scratch a disk or something, which does happen, Beachbody will send you a new one without any problems. I have experience with this one, so I know they’re very good about replacing scratched discs.

    Wow, this looks I intense, but doable and I love that it’s only 25 minutes. Maybe once I’m finished with bbl I’ll give this a go. :) please keep us updated.

      Hi Kate, it is intense, but I’m really enjoying it thus far.

      Luckily, Tania(from INSANITY) does an excellent job as the modifier in these workouts. I try to keep up the best I can with Shaun T and when I need to lower my heart rate I switch to following Tania and then go back to Shaun T when I can.

      Hi Esther, You could add in it on a day that you have the time, basically a double day or replace one of the other core workouts. Bethany

    Hi there, I happened to come to your site while looking for a comparison of P90x and Insanity. I’m a mom with a 20 month old and 3 month old and want to lose 30 pounds. I’m 5′ 5″ and weigh 150. I have insanity from a friend but was wondering if P90x would be better. But now I am wondering Focus25 would be the best? I want to lose weight and get toned. I have a lot of excess belly back and thigh junk that I want to get rid of. Thank you!

    • Bethany Lyn says

      HI Helen, You could give the Insanity workout a try since you already have it and if you find it to intense you could more to T25. Bethany
