Cosmo Girl: Get Fit and Fab with Jillian Michaels

Jillian Michaels shows "Cosmo Girl" readers how to have fun while exercising.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Unlike some of her fitness videos, Jillian Michaels puts on a friendly and approachable face for this younger crowd in this video. She then begins to lead young girls in an exercise video that is so much fun, they don't even realize they are exercising.

In Get Fit and Fab with Jillian Michaels, teen girls and young women bop, jump, and kick their way to fitness in a fun and upbeat hip-hop dance routine. The accompanying soundtrack is lively and energetic, which makes it easier to stay on-beat; however, it does loop quite often, which can be annoying to some viewers.

The video teaches viewers a fully choreographed dance routine, which can be challenging to follow at times. Although Jillian does break the routine down move-by-move, she does not always give enough time to each move for viewers to fully learn the move. There are also not enough breaks in between each new move to let you catch your breath, so you may feel winded quite often. Luckily enough, you can always pause the DVD to take a short break or rehearse moves that you have not become comfortable with yet.

In addition to the workout, Jillian also dedicates a portion of the video to discussing diet and nutrition issues, as well as maintaining a positive self esteem. These are important issues for young women, and Jillian approaches them in a positive manner.

Like all of her videos, if you follow this fitness video on a regular basis, you will see results. This is a fun cardiovascular workout that will have you coming back for more.
