BACKGROUND

Fitness Guru and NBC’s Biggest Loser trainer, Jillian Michaels, has a repertoire of exercise DVDs, books and vitamins to help you get in shape and stay fit. Her latest DVD, Jillian Michaels: 30-Day Shred, includes three separate workouts designed to give your body the strength, form and power it dreams of having. The DVD, when done according to Michaels’ plan, is supposed to help you lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days. Jillian makes clear that this is not for substantial weight loss- but to help those looking to ditch those last 10-20 pounds through high-intensity exercise.

PRO
  • Exercise is a key component to losing weight and maintaining weight loss
  • Jillian Michaels is a well-known and well-respected authority on fitness for safe and effective weight loss
  • Following Jillian Michaels: 30-Day Shred is much less expensive than paying for a gym membership
  • A healthy way to lose those final pounds

CON
  • Jillian Michaels: 30-Day Shred promise to lose “up to 20 pounds” is no guarantee
  • Exercise must also be followed in conjunction with a low-calorie eating plan in order to lose weight successfully
DIET and NUTRITION

Jillian Michaels: 30-Day Shred does not include any specific dietary information. Even though diet is a key component to any weight-loss plan it is therefore strongly recommended to combine this DVD with one of Michaels’ eating plans or another effective dieting program that seeks to establish long-term healthy eating behaviors.

You can use 30-Day Shred along with Jillian's online weight loss program, which provides detailed guidance for nutritious eating. Joining the Jillian Michaels program online provides members with information to identify the right foods for your body type, custom calorie plan and more than 100 recipes that are both healthy and delicious.

EXERCISE

Jillian Michaels: 30-Day Shred includes three 20-minute workouts that get progressively more challenging as you go through them. Each workout begins with a brief warm-up session and concludes with brief cool-down session. Each of the three workouts is created with Michaels’ signature 3-2-1 Strength/Cardio/Ab training circuit in which three minutes of strength work, 2 minutes of cardiovascular work and 1 minute of abdominal work is performed.

CONCLUSION

It is no question that Jillian Michaels knows what she is talking about when it comes to fitness given her tough workouts, her unflinching motivation and her expert knowledge of physical fitness. If you've been craving those intense Biggest Loser workouts, now is your chance to do it. Her DVD, Jillian Michaels: 30-Day Shred, combines all of Michaels’ trademark qualities including her exclusive signature 3-2-1 Strength/Cardio/Ab training circuit.

Although the DVD promises to help you lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days, there is no guarantee that this amount of weight loss will occur. By performing the workouts on most days of the week, you will increase your cardiovascular stamina, strength and flexibility. In order to lose weight, a sound diet plan should also be followed in conjunction to the performing the workouts in 30-Day Shred.

In just thirty minutes, Michaels packs in a powerful workout that combines the core components of any successful exercise routine.

What a great workout DVD!
I have never owned one before, I'm only 16, but my friend and I decided to get into shape. She wants to gain 2 lbs a week (she is only 102 lbs and 5'7) she is doing this to gain mucle along with eating lots and drinking protein shakes. But I want to LOOSE 2 lbs a week which will be a little harder. I am also 5'7 but 137 pounds, somedays more. I want to get down to 120 something. I did day 1 yesterday and it was awesome! She motivates you so much and I just want to push myself further! I am doing this along with. the bender ball workout, which is great for abs. We are working out together 3 days a week but I want to do both the 30 day and bender every day at least once. When school starts in a week I probably won't have time for more than 20 mins a day but right now I can.
I recommend this for anyone who is out of shape, but not more than 20-30 pounds overweight. I am not overweight, but I sure am out of shape! If you are 200+ this may be hard for you but you can always modify.
Wow this got long, sorry guys I'm just so excited! Good luck to everyone and I'm gonna go kick some now!

This video kills me every time! I'm still on workout 1 and I've been doing it for 18 days. I want to move on, but I want to master workout 1 before moving on to workout 2. I like this video a lot and it always makes me feel like I actually put in work.

I have been dieting and exercising since August and have lost over 70 pounds. I have been jogging, lifting weights and riding my bike and have gone from a size 18 to an 8. I have about 10 more pounds to lose so I bought this DVD. I am on Day 2 in Level 1 and I am so sore!!! I love this workout and think it is going to be just what I need to get motivated again to shed the last few pounds and go down 1 more size!

I am getting married in the middle of August. I am the world's worst at staying motivated. After giving birth to my beautiful daughter last August, I weighed 189 lbs. I was disgusted with myself and hated the way that I looked and felt. I had to make a change. I started with getting myself to eat better and lowering my stress levels. (I have an anxiety disorder and wasn't healthy enough to start exercise.)

After January, my doctor suggested yoga. I loved it! I got Jillian's Yoga Meltdown and am down to 174 pounds. I started out in a size 16 and am now at a size 13.

I bought my wedding dress a few weeks ago. It is a size 9/10. I will not be getting this dress altered. I am going to lose the inches. This is something that I have to do for myself.

This is my second day on the 30 Day Shred. I am on a vegan diet (strictly 1200 calories/ day). I was in pain after my first session, but today I feel confident that I can do it.

I encourage everyone who has come to a point where they are serious about becoming more healthy to get active, eat right, and just do it! This video is a great place to begin.

I have done two days of level 1. I love it the only thing i am worried about it the soreness of my ankles and shins...I ran and did more intense workout in the military and didn't have ankles as sore as i do now! Does this get better with time?

I am currently on Level 2 of the workout and I look and feel so much better!! I honestly think Level 2 is easier than Level 1, however, I think that may be because my body is in better condition and I've stuck with it. The video has become part of my daily routine and on the days I can't do it, I feel like I'm going through withdrawl. lol
It's an amazing workout and I thank Jillian for pushing me to my limits because the results are there if you stick to it! I haven't lost a ton of weight with it, but I can see the changes in my body, and I've noticed that my arms are more toned and that I actually have abs! Very happy with this workout and I recommend it for everyone. I can't say enough about how great it is!

This is an amazing workout and if you eat a diet plan specified for weight loss you will get amazing results. I lost four pounds in one week and that was with a healthy diet plan, even cheated once or twice! :)

How to stay motivated? I am debating on buying the video today... I am 5' 4" and weight 148. I have a goal weight of 128 by the end of June 2011. I need help keeping myself motivated.. any suggestions?

How is this the #1 diet? This is not a diet. It's an ad for a workout DVD!

You people need to stop obsessing about the "pounds" you are or aren't losing and worry about the inches and how your clothes are fitting. If you are gaining muscle (and muscle weighs more than fat) then you won't see a lot of difference on the scale but you should see a difference in the size of your waist and the drop in dress sizes. Being skinny doesn't equal being healthy!

I LOVE this workout! I've just done day 7, and I've lost 2lbs so far, but I also think I've gained muscle and can already see changes in my body!
Although the weight isn't coming off quite as quickly as I hoped (as I'm on a calorie controlled diet too) I feel so much better for the exercise and the toning is definitely happening!
I want to lose 35lb over the next 4 months, so steady weight loss is fine by me, I'm not looking to drop 20lbs in a month....I just want banish it by the end of July!!!
