Fitness Expert

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.

In 2007, Shaun T created the phenomenally successful dance-based workout, Hip Hop Abs®. A year later, he followed that with another big hit—Rockin' Body®—as well as two workouts for children—Shaun T's Fit Kids® Club and Get Real with Shaun T®. Then, he blew up the fitness world with the launch of INSANITY®, a 60-day total-body conditioning workout that's insanely hard — but gets incredible results.

Over the next few years, the INSANITY workout series continued to grow with the launch of INSANITY: THE ASYLUM® Vol.1 and Vol.2, two sports-specific training programs based on drills used by pro athletes. But Shaun T was far from finished. In 2013, he again revolutionized the fitness industry by creating FOCUS T25®, a jam-packed workout program that makes every minute count, so you can get an hour's worth of results in just 25 minutes.

Shaun T followed up that success with INSANITY MAX:30, a half hour, zero equipment challenge that some call the "craziest 30 minutes of your day." And now, he's going back to his dance roots with his lastest program—CIZE®!
