We’ve seen a few comments on some of our posts requesting some background information about Focus T25 Shaun T, the creator behind the program and also the person behind the popular and successful Insanity program. We did some digging and found this brief bio on the Beachbody website. Here it is:
About 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.
