RushFit is a unique workout program created for those who are interested in mixed martial arts. While it may address your interest in MMA, will it address your needs? Whether your intentions are to build muscle, improve endurance, achieve your weight loss goals, achieve ultimate health, or to do a mixture of all, there is a workout program for you. Being a fitness writer, I have seen all types of home inspired extreme workouts. But, which one will actually give you the best possible results?

Some total body conditioning programs are continual, while others are created to be completed within a specific time period promising a dramatic body conditioning transformation when followed properly. From what I have seen, those conditioning programs with high intensity circuits that have a set program duration tend to be the most successful.

However, be prepared to do the fitness training program a few times before you actually achieve ultimate results. Let’s face it. Unless you are already at an advanced fitness level, it will be difficult to follow along at the pace necessary to actually see results in the time period specified. However, it is possible to improve with each cycle.

I chose two very popular time oriented systems with high intensity circuits designed for total body conditioning to compare to RushFit. Will RushFit be your favorite workout program or will it be one of the others? This fitness training program review will give you the information you need to make that determination.

RushFit Basics

I first learned about RushFit from a friend and read this rushfit review I liked.  This inspired me to do a bit more research and post my own findings. Here is what I found out.  This mixed martial arts 8-week training program was designed by Georges St-Pierre, MMA fitness expert and UFC champion. This martial arts style workout program is designed for anyone at any fitness level. Whether you are at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced fitness level, you will be able to follow this full body training program because of its training plan designed for each fitness level. You can push past any limits you have set for yourself gradually, which is important so you can get results on your terms.

The full body exercises performed will target all areas of fitness important for ultimate health. The individual workouts combined will increase strength, endurance, explosiveness, balance, and agility. You can expect to burn calories and fat when you perform the 5 minute rounds of MMA style high intensity circuits with 60 second rest periods in between the rounds.

This workout program does provide a nutrition plan to help with weight loss. It is a simple diet plan that provides guidelines for healthier eating. It does not include specific recipes or meals. You will build muscle while burning fat; therefore, it is possible the scale may not show a loss of pounds due to the muscle replacing the fat.

The Rushfit Workout DVDs

  1. Strength & Endurance Workout
  2. Abdominal Strength & Core Conditioning
  3. The Fight Conditioning Workout
  4. Explosive Power Training
  5. Full Body Strength & Conditioning
  6. Two Bonus GSP RUSHFIT Workouts

The diet includes recommendations for eating before and after exercising. While the guidelines for eating before exercising seems to meet current recommended dietary guidelines, you may wish to do some research on the post-exercise recommendations. The diet plan calls for eating an excessive amount of protein calories. At this point in time, current guideline recommendations suggest a percentage of carbohydrates and proteins to help recover muscles after exercising.

RushFit vs. Insanity

RushFit and Insanity are different types of body conditioning programs. RushFit focuses on mixed martial arts style exercises, while Insanity is more of a cardio conditioning program. Insanity uses MAX Interval Training. This type of training intensifies your cardio workout in less time than a traditional cardio conditioning workout.

A plus for the Insanity program is the fact that you do not need any additional equipment at all to get results. You will be using your own body weight for strength building with a lot of plyometric and isometric exercises, as well as cardio and core exercises. If you do not like floor exercises, this is probably not the workout program for you.

While RushFit does advertise as a cardio conditioning program, it is not as cardio oriented as Insanity. In fact, cardio lovers may be a little disappointed in RushFit. While it does provide cardio, it does not focus as much on cardio as Insanity.

The Insanity nutrition plan is more detailed than the RushFit diet plan. The Insanity plan coincides with the actual workouts making sure you receive the nourishment you need to sustain you through the individual workouts. You will be eating five small meals per day and the calories are already calculated within the meals.

RushFit vs. Tapout XT

These two are actually very similar in that they are both mixed martial arts style workouts. However, according to martial arts forums, Tapout XT is more of a martial arts training course than RushFit. You will learn more foundational mixed martial arts moves with Tapout XT than RushFit; however, many MMA experts use RushFit to train.

Tapout XT does not allow for any extra cardio activities like RushFit does. If you are runner or swimmer, do not expect to be able to practice during the 60 day program, or you could over train causing injury to your muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

RushFit takes your lifestyle into consideration and provides a schedule that will allow you to include your favorite cardio workout into the 8-week program. With RushFit, you can actually choose to use their cardiovascular workouts included with the program, or you can choose to do your own. I really think this is an excellent feature.

RushFit is only 8 weeks long while Tapout XT is 90 days. If you are impatient and want this style of workout program, then RushFit might be a better choice for you. I feel that both of these workout programs will benefit you regardless of your goals. .

Final Thoughts


It can be frustrating trying to decide which program will give you the best possible results. All three of these appear to be excellent programs. They all have many high reviews and address all of the important areas of fitness.

I think that Insanity is the best one for weight loss. The amount of cardio conditioning workouts included in this 60 day program will definitely help you burn calories and fat. While RushFit and Tapout XT do include cardio, I think Insanity beats them both in this area. Expect to be getting up and down off of the floor a lot with Insanity.

If you are not a cardio fan but have weight loss goals to achieve, then Tapout XT is a better choice over RushFit because it appears to have a little more cardio than RushFit. However, if you are looking to build muscle while burning fat and are not concerned as much about the number on the scale, then RushFit will work for you. A lower number on the scale does not necessarily mean a sculpted body. With RushFit, you will likely be losing inches rather than pounds.

Which one of these will produce fast results? I would have to say all of them will produce results quickly if you are able to follow them at the pace they recommend. However, RushFit and Insanity are shorter programs, even if you have to do them a few times before you achieve the results you want.

I really like how RushFit has a three level fitness training plan which benefits anyone at any fitness level and allows for gradual improvement. The one that is best for you depends on your personal fitness goals. Once you determine these goals, you will be able to choose a workout program that will help you achieve these goals.

      Hi Tommy,

      I would recommend you definitely try Rushfit. Insanity is for those, well…insane. Tapout XT is awesome too but I would suggest you try Rushfit.

    Hi, I’m looking for a program that will help me add on muscle and increase strength. Should I look into RushFit (Which you mentioned as a muscle builder) or TapouT which seems to have good resistance training routines?

      Hi John,

      I would do rushfit over tapout. You may also want to look at p90x or p90x2. I have links to some good reviews you can read if you need them just lmk.

    Hi-
    I have the insanity program which I did 60 days of and did not get the results I wanted at all very disappointed- P90X I feel moves to slow- the Rush fit looks like it keeps you moving?? I am trying to drop about 5 pounds of body fat and replace with lean muscle mass. I really don’t care too much about “weight loss” I do not get on the scale EVER… but I want to know is the RushFit something that would give me the toned lean muscles I am looking for? How long are the workouts and how difficult is the meal plan to follow?

      Hi Rhonda,

      RUSHFIT is designed to cut fat, promote lean muscle growth, and dramatically improve your overall fitness level. You will gain some muscle and strength but not bulk up. 7 RUSHFIT Workouts on Six DVDs: (1) Strength and Endurance, (2) Abdominal Strength & Core Conditioning, (3) The Fight Conditioning Workout, (4) Explosive Power Training, (5) Full Body Strength & Conditioning, and (6) The 2 Bonus Workouts – Balance & Agility and Stretching For Flexibility. Each workout is roughly 35 minutes long, with high intensity circuit training techniques. You train hard for about 5 minutes, then take a minute’s rest, then move onto the next circuit and so on. Very much the Tabata training method or HIIT if you have done those. If not, let me tell you they are INTENSE.

      The Rushfit nutrition guide is basic in principle with recommendations on healthier sources for the three macronutrients (carbs, protein & fats) and a good selection of effective dietary methods. It also provides pre- and post-exercise snack and/or meal advice. The pre-workout macronutrient proportions and hydrationstrategies are on par with recommendations from current research but the post-exercise guidelines you may want to not follow. Up to you though.

    I’m incredibly skeptical of these kind of programmes, and swore I would never try one. However with the way my work is taking me at the moment I’m interested at may e taking the leap of faith and going for one. I originally liked the look of the TapouT programme however all the reviews seem to be leading towards Rushfit. Do I really only need a set of dumb bells for this programme as on the video you see GSP jumping to a hop up box of some kind like a step up? Also do these things really an I mean REALLY work? I don’t mind repeating the programme till I get results but I want to know its worth it. Also I’m a terrible eater and its mostly because I have no understanding of nutrition. So will the Rushfit eatin plan help? Finally after I’ve completed the 8 weeks, Is the Rushfit programme something I can repeat to maintain a good fitness level?

      Hi Chris,

      You shouldn’t be skeptical. These are all major players in the fitness world. This isn’t some fly by night junk. Rushfit is one of the few that let you put in your own cardio routines so not sure what you saw. The only thing you need are dumbbells. Not even heavy ones. You can google “HIIT” or “Interval Training”. The rushfit workouts are a form of this. You can read the article and comments above for more on that. Good luck!

      Hi Jessica,

      Any of the three but the least chance of getting bored IMO (I don’t find any boring but have heard others say otherwise) is Rush Fit.

    You mentioned in the Rushfit review that it wasn’t a real on the ground type workout like Insanity. I definitely prefer that. But I’m curious as to how much it keeps you off the ground. I don’t like having to roll around on the ground in a workout. It makes me want to lay down and quit.

    Hello, I initially started insanity about 6 months ago and did really well with it for the first month and a half, but then my knees starting giving in. Over the past 4 or so months I have been trying to keep up with insanity but it is constantly hurting my knees, so I am now looking for a new routine. Are either of rushfit or tapout not so knee-heavy? I am constantly having to take days off from working out because insanity is just too much for my knees. Thank you!

      Posted November 20, 2012 at 3:16 pm | Permalink

      Hi Julia, First off, I would recommend you talk to your doctor before doing any of these. They could also give you advice on your knees, but back to your original question.Each workout routine is coached by Georges St-Pierre’s personal trainer Erik Owings and every exercise has modifications provided.

      Posted November 20, 2012 at 5:27 pm | Permalink

      Hi I too had issues with insanity it’s a great cardio workout to keep in the routine but Rush Fit has three levels of workout plans the cardio is great not very hard impact on the knees but yes you need to speak to your doctor about the pain you want to make sure something is not torn. That is the downfall of insanity they do not tell you it causes a lot of injuries. Incorporating strength in your work out will bring great results

      Just adding my views- Insanity includes a lot of jumping about and is not good for sore knees. I managed to continue Tapout, be it a bit more carefully despite having an unstable knee due to a torn ACL. Three months post op I did the Tapout Muay Thai with no problems…wouldn’t even consider trying insanity.

  15. Posted November 20, 2012 at 11:43 pm | Permalink

    use Insanity as your cardio for Rush Fit cardio days. Some do the same as a Insanity-P90X hybrid. Best of both strength, endurance and weight loss routines. Good luck!

    Hi!!
    I did shin ohtake’s “Max Workouts 90 day program” and got good results. Due to the plateau theory of the body getting used to workouts you have done before I am a little hesitant to repeat the 90 day program again as I would like to continue to drop my body fat percentage and build lean muscle (but not bulk). I am in good shape, am a dancer so I have strength, flexibility and great coordination/balance for tough workouts.
    I tried one ‘Insanity’ video but I feel like as an advanced trainer, I would benefit more from a mix up of High Intensity Weight Training as well as High Intensity Cardio (which the Max Workouts provided and I also prefer weight training to cardo).

    With this in mind, would it be beneficial to repeat the Max Workouts but just constantly increasing my load/decreasing rest times or is there a new/better/more intense program you can recommend? Would I benefit from any of the above listed programs?
    Thanks!!!

      Hi Erin,

      It sounds like you are advanced enough you can almost make up your own routines. Assuming you don’t want to do that it’s always good to increase load but decreasing your rest times too low could be detrimental even to a person in great shape. Have you looked at P90x2? It is the advanced version of P90x.

    Hello. I have been reviewing RushFit and Tapout. I am a big fan of MMA so both appeal to me. I weigh 245 and trying to get down to at least 200 to 210. I want to tone up more then build muscle while losing weight. I work everyday and go to school at least 3 days in the evening with weekends to family. i have a busy lifestyle and was wondering which one of these programs would best fit me? Right now I do make it the gym but only can get in 30 mins on the eliptical or treadmill. Just want to get my body right and get my energy back.

    why hello ive completed Insanity, p90x, insanity asylum and rush fit, i found that Insanity gives amazing results but the second month can become quite an effort. I think for beginners a 40 to 50 min workout is quite sufficient or else it becomes a chore more then a hobby. I found Insanity followed by asylum will give amazing results. I have just started Tapout xt so im hoping that will be great to. Thanks for the overview.

    Hi. I purchased p90x, insanity and RushFit all at the same time! I did a week of each just to see. I like Rushfit the best because it keeps my heartrate up so at least I feel like I’m doing something but doesn’t wear me out. I also liked p90X but I don’t have a pull-up bar so I think I’m missing a big part of the workout. Insanity was great but it was a bit too insane for me. I hate cardio.

    My goal is to lose my pregnancy weight (about 19 pounds) and eventually have a killer 6-pack, but losing the fat is most important right now. Will Rushfit do it for me, plus maybe a few days of cardio (Insanity maybe)?

      Hi Dima,

      WOW! I rarely hear someone buying all three at the same time. Kudos to you! You pretty much nailed each program in a nutshell. Pullup bar for P90x is cheap (amazon, walmart, etc all have) if you go that path. Yes rushfit will get you in MMA fighting shape which means you can be a lean mean fighting machine if you stick to it. Post a followup reply with how it goes! Love to hear about it and I am sure other readers will too.

      Hi Harold,

      I guess it depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Not everyone can be a heavyweight muscle bound person. Some people are featherweight but in killer shape. If you want to get in good shape and ripped, yes. If you just want to bulk up stick to heavy weight lifting stuff.

      Hi Nicole,

      I would ask your doctor that. No way I can qualify on your current condition. If you want a low impact workout I would stick to things like: walking, weight lifting, swimming, rowing, But please talk to your doctor.

It will be interesting but I have a goal and I think I can achieve it Thank you sign 50fourfit.

    I am a mother of four in my early thirties, my most recent addition nearly six months old. While I have dropped most of the weight and am within 10lbs of pre-pregnancy numbers, the weight is not my concern. I fit back into my regular clothes (size 5-6), but I find that they just don’t look the same. It seems my body may have dropped the weight too fast for me to tone…I’m super busy, and very lazy when I’m not going nuts with the family and work. I just want to be able to put my clothes on without bearing a strong resemblance to the muffin man. I’ve read reviews and comparisons on all four programs but I’m not sure which would be the best one for my goals and schedule….please help!

    I am using insanity already for one week and I love it.
    But as a full time worker, wife and mother, I struggle to find 40 minutes to workout before preparing dinner. So for 2 months I am sort of sacrifying my family but of course I just do not want it for long term.
    What program do you recommend to keep fit and that can be done 3 or 4 times per week?
    Thanks in advance for your comments!

      Hi Erika,

      Hopefully your husband and kids are part of your success team. If they can help do things to free up some of your time (husband cook sometimes?) this will help a lot.

      Besides that, any of the workouts can be done in a shorter period of time. You just stop before it’s done. I wouldn’t encourage this until you are already in good shape.

      Other things you can do is park far away, always use stairs not elevators, if you ever sit to watch TV do leg squats or pushups or anything you like during commercials, etc.

      Think of anything you can do that converts not burning calories into burning calories! It adds up real fast.

      I recently added the Nike+ Fuelband to my arsenal. Just pay attention to the Nike+ fuel used. You will see when your activity dips and you have to pick up the pace of your daily activity. Good luck!

      Rushfit is to reduce body fat and build lean muscle. This causes an overall improvement in your fitness level. You will gain some muscle and strength but if you want to “bulk” up you need to do heavy weights and low repetitions which is NOT any of these programs in this comparison. You will definitely need to compliment with heavy weights if you want to get large muscles. Once a week imo is not enough, you will need 3+ a week on heavy weights.

    I am 5’10″, female, 250 lbs. want to loose 50-60. been taking a Thai kickboxing class for a year or so, 2-3x week for 45 min. Want to do more often, but scheduling… Thinking at home is my best option. Think Rushfit is best workout option (I plan to keep taking my class), but really like the diet/ nutritional plan that Tap Out seems to offer. Given that eating properly is a key ingredient which plan do you think offers the easiest/most realistic diet plan to complement the workout?

    Also in the RushFit video (their site) it seems as if you need a partner to do the workouts along with focus mits & kicking targets. That really isn’t part of the Workouts is it?

      Posted January 12, 2013 at 3:02 pm | Permalink

      Hi Molly,

      They are more guides. What you eat,etc varies so much from person to person that you really need to just know how to eat properly. I wouldn’t let the nutrition guide accompaniment be your deciding factor. You don’t need a partner for any of these workouts.

    This is a great side-by-side comparison of RushFit, Insanity and Tapout XT. Thank you so much for posting this! Anyway, I’m currently doing Insanity since I want to shed off a few pounds and inches, as well as improve my stamina and endurance. But I think I’ll give RushFit a try afterwards, and use it for toning.

    I’m about 18 tried insanity but it was too intense. I nee to lose like the last 20+lbs and get cut while building muscle and losing fat. Which would be the best rush fit or tapout. Because I heard tap out has the 10day slim down

    Hi!
    First off thanks for doing this by the way. Okay so I have been insturcted by docs to do yoga frequently (daily if possible–for back stuff) and cardio on a daily basis as well and knock off about 40 lbs. I definitely know the choice for me is between Rushfit and TapOut XT but which one would you recommend so that I can do yoga a couple of times a week as well to help strengthen my back?

    • admin
      Posted January 22, 2013 at 2:48 pm | Permalink

      Hi Catherine,

      I am not sure what your level of fitness but Rushfit is better suited to supplement with other routines. You may want to consider a more moderate cardio program like slim in 6 by team beachbody to start. For Yoga I would go with one of the best sellers on Amazon that is for BEGINNERS.

      Hello Torey,
      You need dumbbells for Rushfit. I use 15 and 20lb dumbbells. This may make it difficult for you traveling. You can TRY with resistance bands instead..

However,I had read a lot of bad reviews on it. I don’t work out much anymore,so my fitness level is way down. What would you recommend I use?

      Hi Ange,

      For any beginner you should talk to your doctor first. With that said I prefer Rushfit over Tapout for all levels (beginner to advanced). Surprised you read bad things about Tapout though, it’s a good program too.

I am on a weight watchers diet (very balanced, lots of fruit and veggies.) Would you suggest rotating programmes? I want to keep consistant weight loss of approx 8lbs a month or more. I don’t want to stress my body out too much, especially in the beginning. I downloaded Tapout, and Rushfit. Just wondering which one would be a better starting place. I also don’t want to change my diet, as I am trying to set realistic goals for maintaining, forever.

      @dahntay, honestly, In my book I think Rushfit is the best one out of the three, HOWEVER, if you want six pack abs, you MUST watch your calorie intake. Your abs are there but you need to trim off the fat. You do this by watching what you eat. If you pig out on junk food and lots of carbs you will never get the 6 pack abs you desire.

    • admin
      Posted January 29, 2013 at 2:33 pm | Permalink

      Michelle, All can be hard on the joints so you have to modify. Maybe not jump as high, etc. I’m a firm believer in doing hybrids, as long as you are moving and sweating I believe it’s a good thing. Just be sure you are not over doing the same muscles group.

      Anthony, all three of these are pretty high impact. I had a herniated disc last year and I couldn’t do any of these until I tried something less strenuousness. Have you looked into doing something like P90? I would do that first then move your way up to maybe P90X then Insanity or Tapout, etc.

      Dear Anthony,

      I am a former dancer who was forced out due to a severe back injury that left 4 of my lower vertebrae permanently twisted. I would suggest losing a few of those pounds through yoga first (trust me this is a real work out for your muscles and will seriously help your back if not correct it–depending on how sever the twist). I personally am on week 2 of my TapOutXT choice. It has some good back and hip work(stretches) in it. If you to PX90 (a friend of mine chose this) or tap out though I suggest until you lose a little more that you switch out the plyo cd’s with another as they can be extremely severe and possibly damaging to your joints if you are heavily overweight–my friend switches hers out with the cardio and i usually do either the legs and back or cardio switch.

    Hi, I am a 24 year old woman weighing at 140. I want to lose around 10lbs of far but gain lean muscle and tone. I bought the tap out xt for my boyfriend, but he didn’t like it so I want to give it a try. The problem is that I am a runner. I run up to 10 miles a run, but as you stated, tapout xt does not leave space for anything more. Do you think I should switch the tapout xt cardio days and do run in order to modify it with my interests or follow the program?

    • admin
      Posted January 31, 2013 at 2:42 pm | Permalink

      Hi Kim,

      The issue at hand is often what I call the mailman syndrome. How often do you see mailmen with walk routes that are heavy. Yet they walk many many miles a day. The reason is our bodies become accustomed to certain conditioning. We are very efficient at walking and pretty efficient species at running. My advice is try the tapout xt cardios first for a few weeks and listen to your body and how it responds. Dimensions, weights, soreness, fatigue,etc. Good luck!

      Mike, First off… I’m not sure if you want to do any of these workouts PLUS workout at the gym. These are hardcore workouts. If you want to trim down and get ripped, I suggest doing Rushfit. P90X is awesome but it does more lifting, etc. Rushfit is more into cardio and MMA style working out. Good luck!!

    Hey.
    I’m 42, overweight by about 40 lbs, with knees that 15 years at UPS destroyed. Low muscle tone and a tight schedule are also in the mix.
    Which one would be best?

  56. Tricia
    Posted February 9, 2013 at 11:57 pm | Permalink

    I have P90X, Rushfit, Insanity and *cough* Hip Hop Abs (also by Shaun T of Insanity – my friend bought it and decided it wasn’t for her).

    I agree that Insanity wins hands down for cardio. I went hardcore at Insanity last summer and had good results in terms of definition and cardio fitness. However, weight loss was meh because I wasn’t committed to the nutrition guide though followed the concepts loosely. I do worship at the temple of Shaun T and will work one of his workouts in every now and then. But, it is killer on the knees and I have bad knees (osteoarthritis). And I decided to look for something else to pair with it. Note – a good one to take with you if travelling and need to workout in your hotel room = no equipment and relatively small space needed.

    P90X, I also like but still find it a bit hard on my knees. Really like Tony Horton, find him engaging, knowledgeable and while his personality turns some off, I kinda like it. Not as wheeze and gasp inducing as Insanity.

    That brings me to Rushfit. I love it. I’ve just completed week 1 and have already seen results all over. The pace is not like Insanity-fast and unlike P90X, all you need are some dumbells. Easier on the knees too. GSP is so enthusiastic, encouraging and engaging and, as a fellow Canuck, I have a soft spot for him. No doubt, he’s kicking butt in this but at points, he’s struggling too. In a different way, I find this as hard as Insanity because you are encouraged to go at a pace where you maintain maximum form, control and stability. At times, you don’t even know how hard you’ve worked until the next day or until you stop and realize that you are SWEATY and breathing hard. I like the same warm up, let’s be honest, pretty much all the Insanity warmups feel the same too. The warmup hits all the right spots. The developer of the program, Erik Owings, is no nonsense, chill, very encouraging. His instruction is clear and educational. He offers alternatives. I like the 5 rounds in a workout concept. The way the workouts are put together make sense. There is a sameness to every workout in Insanity. Rounds 4 and 5 are “championship rounds” and it really kicks up. If you watch and think the Stability and Balance workout is “no big thing”……do it, and cry tears of regret. For Cardio, I hit the treadmill or do a couple *cough* Hip Hop Abs (the shame of uncoordination burns extra calories). The price point beats the other two. I was going to do a Rushfit/Insanity hybrid but after a couple days, decided to just up myself to the Rushfit Advanced level.

    When I am done the 8 weeks of Rushfit, I’m going to dial it back to Intermediate level and work some Insanity or P90X into the cycle.

    They are all great in my books. In order of preference – 1 Rushfit, 2 Insanity and 3 P90X.

    I’m a 42 year old female, 5’1″, about 10lbs over the high end of the scale for my “ideal weight” (after a 24lb weight loss) but I am also fairly muscular. I’m aiming to lose 15lbs. I’d say my fitness level is a itty bitty smidge above average. If I can do it, almost anyone can.

    Hi David, I’ve never done TapOut (going to look it up now) but of P90, Insanity and Rushfit, I find Rushfit to be the kindest to knees. It also offers you easier but still challenging alternatives and the pace is not Insanity breakneck fast. It’s also about 45 mins for one workout. If you get up to Advanced you are looking at up to double that. I like that you get to choose your Cardio component so if you like swimming, running, elliptical you don’t feel guilty that you are skipping a part of the program.

I’m on week three and feel completely better. I can see my legs, arms, chest and abs all tonig up, and I’m only 15 workouts in, and not following the diet plan, just eating better than before.

    Great article! Thanks for the comparisons. I love the cardio workouts but my knees from competitive distance running don’t let me do a lot of jumping so I don’t think Insanity is for me. So, what would you recommend? I have P90, P90x, slim in six etc… I was thinking of getting Tapout which brought me to this blog. Which of the three mentioned in this site would you recommend that is easy on my knees? I can do the P90 without the lunges, which blew up my knees. Again, nice article with good information.

      Hi Clyde,

      Sounds like purchasing workouts isn’t a financial burden. So try both Tapout and Rushfit! Both have a few high impact moves that won’t do bad knees any favors, but as with p90/p90x it’s all about modifying, right?

I grew up playing soccer and used to be in great shape but over the past few years have stopped playing, thus stopped working out for the most part. I was looking into tapout xt because it looked like a well rounded program that would help tone and love the flab I have acquired and it looked fun. I just want to get my money’s worth with whichever program I get, and awesome results of course, so which would you recommend? Thanks!

    Personally, I am 6′ and 200 lbs. Not necessarily over-weight but not ideal weight and a little soft around the middle. I attempted the Insanity workout and had bad results because my heart couldn’t keep up with the cardio intensity and twice I found myself on the floor missing 20 minutes of my day (kinda scary, I didn’t know I was that out of shape). Looking into Tapout XT as an alternative to firm up the soft areas, but not pass out along the way. Any thoughts?

I was looking into p90x but the time frame for a lot of the workout was a bit long 60+ mins. I try to do about 45 with my schedule. I also run about 3 miles every few days.

      Hi Jason, I know what you mean. P90X is around 1 hour but if you take off the warmups it’s around 45min (Except for YogaX). I’ve done Rushfit and it’s 45 min long. I’m getting ready to try Les Mills Combat and from what I can tell, there are a few routines that are 30min and a few that are 45 and 60 min.

    I am 42 and female. I have tried both rush fit and insanity and by far I like rush fit better. I did not even follow the program and saw results after a few weeks. I hate indoor cardio so rush fit ended up being perfect. The workouts flew by and I felt I was really concentrating on working out rather than trying to catch my breathe like with insanity. Plus I honestly think being slightly overweight to overweight is not a match for insanity. Coincidence or not I noticed I got knee damage after doing insanity. I think its best for maintaining weight. Also remember muscle burns fat so I recommend building the muscle with rush fit and doing something you enjoy for the cardio.

    I have recently been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and am looking for a workout that will help build muscle mass, especially in my legs. Do you believe any of these programs would help my situation??

    Hi I am 17 years old and am currently overweight by 35 lbs I have been looking into rushfit because I like the fact that I could get stronger and more toned without loosing a lot of weight, which has turned my attention towards rushfit over insanity and tapout xt. I currently weigh 213 lbs and want to get to a toned and strong 170-180 lbs. I just wanted to know if any other workout programs would be better for me.

    I personally think tapout xt works wonders im on day 44 right now and I lost 18 pounds so far and feel great. I started at 209 and now in at 191. My target weight is 184 so I think I will match or exceed my goal by day 90. Also remember diet is a key factor in weight loss. I strictly consume 1500 calories a day and that has worked well for me.. good luck :)

    I’m a huge fan of Rushfit. After every workout I’m sweating buckets. I like combining Rushfit with the P90X strength training workouts best. For example, I’ll do Chest and Back (P90X) on one day then Abdominal Strength and Core Conditioning (Rushfit) the next day.

    I’m now 34 y/o and 20lbs overweight, I’ve tried P90x before and got bored then I tried Insanity and got bored again. I did alot of martial arts training before so when I saw the Tapout XT commercial I became very interested because of the MMA style workout. Punching, kicking, elbows & knees is what I love. So which one would you recommend between Tapout and Rushfit? I want to try Rushfit but I dont know if it has the punching, kicking part that got me interested in the first place with Tapout XT.

      If Tapout XT sparked your interest I would go that route. Both are excellent and I think you’d enjoy either.

      Hi Tim, What are your goals in season? What are you goals out of season? Muscle Mass? Endurance? Explosive moves? Weight Loss?

      Hi Tim, I wish I had these programs when I was in HS, I would have felt like I had the upper hand. I have tried all three and I like Rush Fit the best. The guy is a beast and it would be a good program for a wrestler since it’s about explosion. Good luck!!

      Emily, depends… All 3 are pretty good, rushfit and tapout are the latest to hit the market and are more “MMA” style workouts.

    I’m just trying to get toned up, primarily my legs and core. My job takes care of the arms already. It’s currently a debate between Tapout and Rush fit and I’m also an impatient person. I’m already in good shape but I want to get better. Any suggestions?

      Hi Amanda,

      Rushfit I think does a better job of legs and core. Have you SEEN GSP? :D

    hey I have completed insanity, insanity asylum1, and p90x. Over that period have lost about 100 pounds however i have not achieved the body I want in terms of abs and muscles I wanted to know which would be the best one of the three to achieve this. I also know that I probably haven’t achieved the muscle tone I want because of my diet which is more flexible

      Hi Chloe,

      First off congratulations on losing 100 pounds! I find it a bit amazing you haven’t achieved muscle tone? Do you still have a bunch (50+) pounds to lose? If yes, then do Rushfit. If not my advice is to switch to strength training (heavier weights) which you should have achieved on p90x which puzzles me. I really need more info to be much more help. Hope to hear from you and good luck!

    I want to lose weight but I’m also looking to tone up my body. Would Insanity be best for that goal?

      Hi Angelica,

      Actually all three would work. So now it depends which program seems to fit your personality the best.

    Hi there
    I am an ex 100m & 200m sprinter (when I was in my teens to early 20s now in my late 30s) and up until three years ago before having my beautiful baby girl I was in incredible shape with lots of energy, an enviable 6 pack, muscle definition and visible bicep vains!

    Now post pregnancy, about 3 years later, and I’m about 45lbs overweight, with a body that I just do not recognise, it brings me to tears.
    After reviewing all 3 it’s definitely between Insanity and Rushfit or perhaps a combination of the two?
    I love intense training programmes so this doesn’t scare me off and I am looking for something that will hold my concentration and interest and keep me eagerly awaiting every new section, which in turn means it’s giving me the results that I am looking for (huge weight loss, definition, lean, energy, strength and stamina; basically my athlete’s body back.

    I have a very active toddler who I’m struggling to keep up with and feel like I’m letting her down and myself as well as a very intense and pressurised job.
    I’m aware and believe that no matter how good a trainer or training plan is you have to watch what and how much you’re eating, so the eating plans that are advised how realitstic and easy to follow are they as time is something I just don’t have!.

    Please be honest with me will either or both of these get me the results and body I want?

      Hi C – I wouldn’t do a mix of the 2 at first, just do 1 program and do the next after you are finished. You can then do a mix of the 2 programs. All 3 programs are great. Rushfit and TapouT are more of MMA style and can be rather fun. Insanity is more of a Crossfit style of training but can be good as well. I would try one first like Rushfit then after a few months move on…It’s all about change and doing different type of workouts. Good luck!

      Rehnuma,
      Insanity is tough but so is Tapout and Rushfit. Have you looked at Brazil Butt lift? It’s not as tough as these three so maybe you should try that then move on to the next level?

    Have tried All 3. P90, Rushfit and Tapout. Started with Rushfit at 225lbs, took a few days to get through warmup…no word of a lie. Then gradually got further and further pausing my iPad. after 4 months, the scales went from 225 lbs to 205 and my suits started to fit again. Had friends who had not seen me in months make comments at how fit I now looked. Ater 5 months I wanted to try something new and tried P90x, the struggle started over as the workouts warmup to cool down were + an hour. Rushfit was 35 mins. About a month later could do most of the excersises and got stronger. Then Tapout….my heart monitor said I was burning the calories, could have been timing but I plateaued for 2 months and then went back to Rushfit. Toned, strength and core improved.
    Hope this helps.
    49 years old, was 225, played sports, had knee injuries put the effort in and can say the two worked.

      Hello Jo,

      Either one will help out a lot. I prefer rushfit but Tapout XT is good also, don’t do tapout xt 2, its more intense.
