In brief: Not about calories

The "insanity" workout isn't about calories, but about conditioning your body with interval training.
That said, the "calorie burn" depends on how much you weigh (bigger body = more). And it's named "insanity" for a reason, in that it's extremely intense and not for someone who is just starting back into exercise. It's a collection of dvd's you can do at home. 6 days/week, 30-60 min each.
