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.

WOW!!!! It is the best workout ever! I have lost weight, tonified my muscles and gained strength and flexibility in only 15 days!

WOW...I am on day 13 and almost half way there.

Before starting this progam I was going to the gym 4 -5 days a week for the past 6 months. This is the most intense 20 minute workout I have ever experienced. I have officially cancelled my gym membership - I see more of a difference in two weeks with these workouts than I did in 6 months at the gym. I am following my suggested daily calorie intake for my size. I have lost 6 pounds so far, 2 1/2 inches off of my waist, 2 inches off my hips and my whole body is toning up nicely. I took all my measurements the day before I started the program and will take them on day 30 to see what the overall inch loss is.

This video is not for the faint of heart - it is tough. Just know, that if you do it every day and only eat your daily calories for your size.....you will get results.

Holy crap! I'm a stay at home mom, so excercise and me are not the best of friends! This totally kicked my ass!!! I've been doing it for about 5 days which is officially about 5 days longer than any other routine I've adopted. LOVE IT!!! Just did level 2 today. Can't wait to see results!!!

I've done level one through exercise t.v. and will purchase the dvd. However, are you suppose to do the dvd EVERYDAY? I thought with weight training you are suppose to give a day rest before you work the same area? Help, Anyone??

Love it. Only on day 2 but I was sore after the first workout. I can feel muscles that I haven't felt in a looong time. Knowing that each workout is 20 minutes and each motion is only 30 seconds helps you put the dvd in, give it your all and finish up to the last second! I'll repost next Friday and let ya know how I feel :)

Great dvd! Just started yesterday so obviously havent seen any results but I am SOO ridiculously sore! Which means that its a great workout of course :P I am the laziest, non-gym person ever and even I can get through this one. Its not easy but it's not horrible either and anyone can get through 25 minutes! It includes things like jumping jacks and crunches so it's not impossible. Im getting married in 4 months and need to lose 15 pounds - hoping this will help me do the trick!

I've been doing this workout for 20 days now and I love it! I have lost 5 lbs and really increased my stamina, energy level, flexibility and so much more. I just feel better. And I have ABS! This is a great workout, she keeps me motivated!

GREAT workout. Even if you think you are in good physical conditions this one kicks your butt!

This is an awesome, hard core work out DVD!!! You will love it and see results.

I'm not a fan of workout DVDs, but Jillian is so motivating on the show I thought I'd try this one out. This is the best workout DVD! It actually takes about 30 minutes (including warm up and cool down). It is a hard core workout in a short amount of time and I've had great results.

I'm on day three of level 1. I began at about 140-142 lbs and I already see/feel a difference! I weigh 136-138 now!! I'm motivated to eat healthier because I feel sore and I don't want to feel like I worked hard for nothing. I like to do pilates so I'm going to combine this 20-minute workout every day with a 20-minute pilates workout every other day.

I love this DVD, i've only had it a couple of days but have done it every day and am very sore...but the good i-just-got-my-butt-kicked sore.

I like this program. It kicks butt. It's classic old school moves but improves your strength effectively. It makes you feel as if you accomplished a lot in just one day.

Great workout, she kicked my butt! BUT, be careful, and don't over-do it on the first few rounds. I did, and got sick :P Just take it slow at first, if you have to, and work your way up!

AMAZING!!! You feel so strong after this. I ADORE this dvd. It's so hard but you sure feel it. This delivers results like nothing I have tried before. I love that you don't need a lot of room to do it. I've dropped 40 lbs so far in about 2 months.
