We challenged 6 women to try the Focus T25 Workout by Shaun T. Their results were so amazing! They were nice enough to share their honest Focus T25 reviews with us as you’ll read about below. After just 21 days of following the program, they dropped 48.5 inches just from working out 25 minutes a day and watching what they ate.
Scroll down to the bottom for all 4 Focus T25 Schedules
What is Focus T25 Workout?
- It’s broken into 10 weeks and heavy in cardio workouts.
- Broken down into 3 phases: alpha, beta, and gamma.
- Expect to burn about 300 calories during the 25 minutes on average.
- No equipment required until the Gamma phase.
- You just need 25 minutes and about 6 ft of space!
- It’s cardio is pretty heavy and includes jump training.
Who is Shaun T 25 For?
It’s perfect for a beginner to an intermediate exercise man or woman. There is also a modifier in every workout showing how to make each move low impact. The 21 Day Fix is a similar fitness program if you need a quick workout but this one isn’t for you.
Focus T25 Workout Vs The Insanity
These workouts both have interval training and Shaun T, but that’s where the comparison ends. Insanity is a much more advanced workout that literally has you going to your very max level of endurance and strength. I don’t feel like Insanity is right for many people.
- Insanity’s workouts are 30 minutes in Insanity Max, and in the original go up to an hour.
- Insanity really doesn’t have a true warm-up.
- This workout has modifications.
- Insanity is more cardio.
- The price and amount of what you get are very similar to both programs.
Our Test Group was also asked to commit to the meal plan with the t25 calories recommended and Alpha workouts for 21 days.
You Can Try Both Workouts on Beachbody on Demand.

Do I have to do 2-a-days on Friday like the Schedule Shows?
A few of the test participants opted to do the 2nd workout listed on Friday on Saturday instead.
What do I do once I finish it?
Focus T25 Meal Plan
Along with the workouts, you also receive a full nutrition guide for max results in 60 days. Our test group (their results are below) also followed the meal plan.
- 25 Easy recipes for on-the-go
- Each recipe takes 5 ingredients
- Like before, you’ll get about 40% carbs, 40% protein and 20% fat in each meal.
- You’ll be able to figure how many calories you need from the guide.
- There is also a FAQ section to help with food cravings, when to eat your meals and what to do if you’re still hungry.
Why does it work?
T25 incorporates the most effective exercises during the short workouts to help you build muscle and burn more fat. It’s been proven shorter, intense workouts burn more fat than traditional workouts. The reason is because your body continues to burn calories even after the workout is over!
Also with the workouts being short, you have time to prep your meals and focus on your diet as well.
Don’t be intimidated if you’re not in shape or short on time.
We love fitness, but we aren’t the type of girls to want to workout for hours on end. Focusing on 25 minutes a day with a stretch workout on Sunday really helped us stay consistent in our workouts. Plus you don’t need any equipment so you can do the workout anywhere! If you travel a lot, you might also consider using it on Beachbody on Demand!
Within just 21 days, the 6 ladies lost a total of 48.5 inches!

6 Real & Honest Focus T25 Reviews
T25 before and after:
“I‘ve attempted several Beachbody workouts before and I believe this is my soulmate workout! I started this Test Group with a mission of changing my attitude towards food while increasing my endurance and losing weight. Before this program, I had the mentality of rewarding myself with too many cheat treats after an awesome week of healthy eating and working hard. I know that the accountability of this group is what made me stick with the easy to follow the meal plan and quick workouts. At the end of the 21 days, I made 5.3 lbs disappear as well as 6.5 inches!
I’m happy to say that I’m in my 6th full week of the program and have kept off a total of 7 lbs and 8 inches…even through the holidays! More importantly, I am so proud of the way my relationship with food has changed as well as the physical changes I’m seeing with my body! It’s all thanks to Shaun T and the amazing group I worked with!”

“I started so that I could prove to myself that I could stick with a program and to set myself up for the holidays. It was easier than I thought (meals & meal planning). I had to attend several networking holiday parties for work and I managed to not cheat and stay on track. The meal plan and the workouts also helped me to stay focused. The modifications were great because I have bad knees and living upstairs.
I was so excited to see I lost 11.5 inches in 3 weeks. In addition, I managed to lose a few more pounds due to changing my eating habits even though I did not keep up with the workouts after the 21 days.”

“Prior to starting the challenge, I hoped of reducing my anxiety and being happy and healthy in the new year. Not only did it jump start my health for 2014, it also taught me about portion control and helped my relationship with food. I was in a car accident at the end of the year and I have to say that I am back up on my feet again working out slowly but surely and I give this program full credit for my fast recovery. Having strong muscles has helped with recovery. Thank you, Shaun T, and also thank you Kim and Kalee for getting my feet moving again. !”
Emma’s Facebook Status 12/24:
“Before I started T25 in hopes of gaining self-confidence and strength. I have far exceeded my initial goals. Not only has this program given me results physically, it has also helped me with my anxiety and self-confidence. This new year I’m stronger and in better shape than I have ever been in my life. The meal plan also gave me the right amount of food for my body. After this group, I feel empowered and wonderful now!
Thank you, Kim Sorey and Kalee Sorey, for lighting the fire under my toosh again. I can’t wait to see what results I get by day 60, doing workout classes at Odyssey fitness and completing #thewhole30 in January with Megan Swartwood. 2014 will be an amazing year!”
