The Shuttle was an enormous engineering and human achievement and I love that video!.
But it didn't accelerate that fast!

It was limited to 3g, 30m/sec^2, to minimise stress on the airframe.
You would weigh three times your usual weight, so it's not trivial and for a lot longer, but a dragster can achieve 8g, and fighter jets, 9g!
