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.

This workout is amazing...I'm seeing definition results after 2 weeks...I didn't do it over the two weekends, sat or sundays.. I work out regularly, but felt that I needed "intensity" and this gives it. Of course I eat a healthy diet and quit smoking...(nervouse about weight gain w/ that part) but I'm down 5 pounds...you just have to put yourself on a schedule...write down what you are eating... I do, water water water, green tea, 2 servings protein, 3 veggies, 3 fruits, 2 starches, 1 fat, 1 dairy...(sometimes a little more if I'm feeling like snacking, but don't overdo)...it's working..and I'm excited!

Curious, I am wanting to purchase this today during my errands. Within the DVD, is there alot of jumping and bouncing around? Reason I ask is because the only open space i have is on the 3rd floor of my house, and I am not sure if my neighbors, boyfriend and step child would appreciate the sounds of a roof caving in :)

I started the program 6 days ago today. I have already lost 10 pounds in just DAYS! I am also a bartender so I am on my feet for 8 hours running around 5 days a week. I HAVE NO DIETED AT ALL. I still eat everything I always have! I drink more water of course because my body craves it after the workout, but that is it! If your serious about loosing weight stick to it girls! YOU CAN DO IT. I started at 160, and am down to 150. IN 6 DAYS!

Im on day 20!! Almost done, yet I havent lost a single pound. I have combined this workout system with a low calorie, healthy diet plan...Ive lost a little over one inch around my wiast and look more toned everywhere. But no pound loss...Its a great work out, but I think its used for people already in shape trying to tone up.

The Cons listed are: ?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.

These are hardly cons. You should never feel like you will magically lose weight on any type of plan! It's a calories in-calories out=weight loss thing. Eat less, work out more and it will happen. If you do this but continue to eat junk, well what can you really expect? I am starting this in conjunction to C25K on Sunday and am curious to see the results.

Im 15, 5'7, and about 160, im hoping to lose about 30 pounds. I just got this today in the mail and i started it right away! It sure did hurt! But totally worth it cause i can STILL feel the burn. Im not out of shape, but not 100% toned. Im hoping this DVD really does get real results quick! From the feedback it looks promising. Im excited for summer :)

I had my daughter 9 months ago and i'm still carrying the extra baby weight, and i decided it was time to get rid of it. I started the 30 day shred and it kicked my butt!! I am on day 3 now and i feel great. I feel like i have more energy, and more motivation to do this dvd. its making me feel better about my self...very sore but its worth it! I just hope i get good results by the end of day 30! 27 days to go!

I just finished the 30 day shred. I lost a total of 7 pounds, and I definitely look much smaller. I started at 185 pounds and really out of shape. I'm still doing some of the modifications in levels 2 and 3, but it's amazing how much of an improvement I have made. And amazingly, I'm not bored with the workouts yet! Definitely a good purchase.

I just bought the 30 Day Shred DVD today... Haven't started yet. I am pretty excited about it though. I know it will kick my butt, but it will be worth it! Starting a diet after the New Year, and starting a new workout too. Won't my boyfriend be surprised when he comes home from deployment? :D

I just found this video ON DEMAND so it's only a trial but I am considering buying it. I am only on my second day but im sore!! .. It feels great to get the exercise that I haven't been getting. I have a 3 month old child and never any time to workout but it's less than 30 minutes and it WORKS!

Just bought this today. Day 1 was GREAT!! Could not believe I could burn that many calories in that about of time. (507 calories according to my heart rate monitor). I love that it's not an hour of workout that I might talk myself out of doing because of the length. This one is short and sweet* ;) You'll definitely feel accomplished after you're done. THANK YOU JILLIAN!

I'm starting this tomorrow and hoping to lose this baby weight I've had for the last 10 months. Keep me motivated people!

I don't weigh myself but after doing it for only 4 days on level one, I feel SO much stronger. I'm losing the lower fat on my belly that I could never get rid of before and developing my core.
Lots of muscle pain, but damn, I know it will be worth it.

@Isis (LOVE your name) and others who complianed of gaining weight at first: the physiology of weight reduction dictates that your situation is normal and expected. This DVD (which is *awesome*) will definitely tone you and build muscle with the weights AND help you shred the pounds with cardio. Since muscle tissues weigh more than adipose tissue (FAT, yuck) it is natural to gain weight in the beginning (about two weeks). Think of it this way: 2 lbs. of fat lost, but 4 lbs. of muscle gained. I'll take the shapely muscle over unsightly fat any day! I will be a Certified Personal Trainer very soon and this DVD still made me sweat and *sore* the first day. Do this DVD along with a sensible diet plan and you have no choice but to get results.
