RE: LOVE Insanity- HATE Tonya!

I pretty much just read the first post here, and I guaranty 90% of the subsequent posts bash it, but I'm glad that someone said it. Tanya's a smoke show, but give me a break already. I'm just looking at the Insanity discs for the first time since I'm going to start it shortly and wanted to get a preview, but she is already driving me nuts. That said, I can't imagine that my hatred for her can possibly rival my hatred for Dreya. I find myself literally yelling expletives at Dreya during the P90X workouts.

Is Dreya the one that says "I want to leave" during Insanity PURE CARDIO? WIth Shaun T telling her to go sit down. If so, I think her saying that during the video was HORRIBLE. I'm willing to bet that someone felt the same way, and just gave up at that point, even though they weren't at their threshold yet.

Dreya is not Insanity. She is in P90X and it seems like Tony is crushing on her big time.

I think her name is Shanita, is the girl in Insanity that says "I want to leave"

I'm not one to talk lately, but Shanita poops out alot in the videos she's in. They actually use the part when she "collapses", after saying she "wants to leave", in the infomercial. Shaun is the good guy, not wanting to accidentally kill her via exhaustion, so they use that as the "don't sacrifice form" moment. I usually could use a break right about then also, so it works for me.
Anna, on the other hand, seems to be the energizer bunny. Good pace and form, always seems to be moving, no exaggerated faces or funky breathing.

I LOVE TONYA!

She has an amazing body, so its just motivation when they have the camera on her... as soon as Tonya is on there I swear I turn up the jets

About people saying she's making weird faces and stuff as shes going hard..... I have to say I haven't noticed ... then again I can't say Ive see much of her face.

I can't stand Tania (Tanya) either. She seems like a butt kisser to me. Super annoying. I hate when he asks her "how do you feel Tanya?" and she's all like "Wooo". She never answer just always woo....I can hear her in the crowd when he prompts everyone. It is super annoying....I listen to my Ipod now but still can't stand her facial expressions.

Frankie cracks me up with his high knee runs. Then like someone said earlier, you always seem him fall out afterwards. I always laugh at him when Shaun T says "look at my feet", you seem his head automatically look at the ground. It's hilarious to me. The black girl doe seem to half heartedly complete the workouts. During the jabs she seems like she is playing too much.

Ariel is motivating, and the brunette that is in his weight training video. The black ripped guy Chris is motivating as well...

Whoever wrote that they hate anyone, just due to appearance on a video, is a complete idiot and has poor moral character.

Every individual on those DVD's is fit and strong. I'm trying to be like them - every day, with every workout.

Such sad, sad people who say they hate anything.

Sorry Bufont,
Word is that Tonya's married and Shaun was in the wedding. Couple questions...
Glad to hear that you turn up the jets when Tonya's on screen, but you know that she can't see you getting all buff for her, right?
If you haven't seen her exaggerated faces, what are you looking at? Hmmmmm?emoticon

@Al Brashear: Sorry we're all idiots and don't have your high moral character, but this is really all in fun. I think most of the posters in this thread secretly know and feel that all of the participants are in great shape, fit, and strong, and actually admire and want to be like them. These observations are just a mental distraction to avoid the fact that this program is kicking our butts. So please lighten up.
We can all have fun with this.

Tonya's expressions did annoy me but I am trying to find them more amusing now.




KCInsanity:
The other girl I like and that inspires me is the one that's usually screen left (on Shaun T's right), but I don't know her name. She's got darker hair and has a great build -- strong and fit, but still feminine. In one workout she wears red shorts and a black top and in another one she wears a gray top. Shaun T calls her by name once, but I can't make out what it is. It's something that begins with a "M".

"M" : at the :28 mark of this video -- http://youtu.be/cSccVzdYhmI; and at :44 mark of this video -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWNZs4ty-YI&feature=relmfu



She is my favorite, I am almost done with the recovery week and I have been pissed because she is not there.

I find this comment thread to be extremely amusing, because, I too agree that Tonya is effing ANNOYING. I knew from the first moment I saw her in the fit test when she uses her 'orgasm' voice to tell Shaun T that she started off with 2 million reps and now does 8 million reps. Pfft. I also noticed in the video's how when the camera focuses in on her she does do that over dramatic annoying and terrible face --"work it out!". OK Tonya, ugh. Another funny note, has anyone else noticed the 'crotch close up' to Tonya in the 1st month DVD set...i believe plyo video? lol.

Still LOVE insanity, and even though a lot of the people in the video's 'take breaks' and need to sit work-outs out, It makes ME feel better if I need to sit out as well, I feel human. I just wish there was less emphasis on Tonya.

I actually like Tonya. She has a great body and she never quits or flakes out. Also enjoy following Anna in Max Interval Circuit. She and Shaun are BFFs , I think he said he's godfather of her new baby so that's why she might seem to be kissing ass to some folks, I think they're just really close and have a better connection than Shaun and the other castmates.

Chris is my favourite of the guys, he kills those power push-ups.

I always laugh in Pure Cardio when we're doing the hooks with 4 jumps and Shaun T says "HOOK IT TANYA!"

I also get a kick out of the guy (Frankie maybe?) who notices the camera is on him When Shaun T is trying to say "Scissor runs" and he goes into turbo mode like "oh crap they're watching me!"

I have no problem with fit strong women showing a good example on these DVDs. I find Tonya inspiring, and Dreya as well. Shaun and Tony encourage the others to strut their stuff and to share their results to show us what we can do if we stick with the program. I see no reason for the women to have to be humble about it. It's not the 1950s.


Madamefit- you are misreading the spirit behind this post. This is not a women's lib, "I am women, watch me workout" issue at all. I totally agree women don't have to be humble about being fit.

That's why I am motivated by other women working out just as hard. And why I didn't limit my criticism to only women (read my above "most annoying" post), and why I gave praise to women who work out just as hard, but don't seem to have something to prove (again, read my "most motivating" post).

Read the other posts from other people in this thread. Clearly there are other women (and men) who agree. Acting like you're the bees knees, and overacting for the camera, is obvious, corny and distracting. I don't care if it's a women, man or a donkey. I don't want to see people glomming for attention for the camera. Viewers are smart- they see what you're trying to do. Especially on the 10,000th viewing. I didn't buy Insanity to see people preen.

Otherwise, I'd go to muscle beach and watch guys pose all day.

I love that people (myself included) are getting fit. My note was to make future BB videos more effective for people like me. Again, clearly I'm not alone. And someone had to say it, because, let's admit it, it really does look like she's taking a crap in her pants.


I agree... Hubby and I thought she was annoying, too.lol! As far as Shanita (sp?), I don't think she's lazy, but I wish she'd give less lip and more effort.Lol I think near the end of the Pure Cardio workout, Shaun T. called out something and I think she said, "What do you think??" (shrug). I love love LOVE Rachel and the little blonde "firecracker" (that's my name for her)... she has this little determined look on her face during the sprints and it makes you determined to keep going, too. emoticon We laugh at Mario(?) and the K-Fed guy when they look at the camera and say, "I'm dyin' here!" 'cause they're RIGHT. It's a hard workout and that's why most people take this challenge. I dont' really think they're bottom feeders, just folks who aren't quite as fit... or they might be hamming it up for the camera in the OTHER direction.Lol Hey, you can't always have fit, motivated, "crap in your pants" people on these videos, right? What fun would that be?Lol

HAHA! This thread is funny. I am relatively indifferent to Tonya. The only distractiosn for me are: The firecracker girl, Anna I "think" is the one that looks and sounds so much like Angela from the Office that I get creeped out watching and listening to her. I also don't like when Ariel talks. She clearly is not able to talk while exercising and Shaun should not make her because her exercise voice is like fingers on a chalkboard.

Other than that, I don't notice the people. I am looking forward to watching again and be on the lookout for all the drama you guys reference and I can't wait to see the breakdance guy take out Ariel. I am on week 3 of Month 2 and never noticed.

That's at the very end of Max Interval Circuit, just before they begin the cool-down.

This thread is too funny. I love Tonya's body, but I agree with the others, her fish puffing face is a bit annoying.

Thanks for the laughs, have a great weekend all!

You make great points that can lead to some real improvement for future products.

BTW... Regarding the Insanity points, I agree with every one of your observations!

kidwonder:
This is hilarious. I sent my sister in law a couple of workouts for her to see if she liked it and this was her first comment to me when I called her: "I hate that asian chick"

I had to laugh, and now I can't help but chuckle every time she is on camera making her "taking a crap in her pants" look. I have to admit though she is in view like 80-90% of the time and kicks ass. Not like the bottom feeders in the back row, my first goal was to kick their butts during the workout.

What I tell friends who are starting out is to focus on the back row and do better than them for the first two weeks, then gradually raise your level to that approaching Sean T.

My favorite part is when Sean T sends that dude in the back row to sit down for the rest of the workout (Pure Cardio I think?) --- he should send that whole back row home.

Favorite line #1: "You didn't wear a sports bra before insanity did you?!"

Favorite (most dreaded) line #2: "I don't know about you, but I'm a little nervous about todays workout" - Sean T during the warm up for Pure Cardio, scared the crap out of me each time I did this wokrout


Haha this is a fun post! Although kind of hot, I can't even look at Tanya when she is making that one face. Funny that someone else had the same impression. I think she is also the one that always hoots when Shawn T. is yelling "In..Out..In..Out!" in the full body drills. (Sexual inuendo maybe?)

I've done these so many times I think I can do all of Shawns lines from memory. I always do the "HA!" with him when he does the first Heisman =) I loves these videos!

Now regarding "Favorite line #1: "You didn't wear a sports bra before insanity did you?!"... this whole time I thought he was saying "You never worked in a SPORTS BAR before insanity did you!" Is he really saying sports bra???!!!

Please discuss!
