I started the 30-Day Shred four days ago and I've already lost three pounds, of course that includes just a slight change in my diet. I'm still eating everything I like, just less of it. And I'm drinking water instead of soda. The first time I worked out with it, it was pure torture. I was beyond sore and it hurt my thighs to even sit down. But I knew that just because I was sore, I had no excuse to stop. So I continued to do it. I'm only on day five and I'm already seeing a dramatic change in my energy and endurance levels. I'm excited for my workouts now and sometimes I do it twice. This DVD is a great buy if you're willing to go through a little bit of pain to get great results. I definitely recommend it!
For the first 3 days I could barely move and doing things was hard because my muscles hurt so much. After that it got a little easier and slowly I noticed I could do more and more without being winded. While I didn't notice a big weight drop in the first week or so I did notice that my close were fitting better and could see a change happening. I as well as a lot of friends on myfitnesspal.com use it and all love the results we are seeing from her workout. I am still on level 1 and am looking forward to levels 2 and 3. This is one of the best weight loss things I have bought and am loving it.
I own almost all her dvds and this one is my favorite. It might be only 20 min but it will leave you breathless! I love the 3-2-1 method she uses and that I can fit it in quickly into my schedule. It's challenging and well layed out. Perfect because it involves Cardio and strength training all in one workout, love it.
I know that Julian is tough, but I love her! However, this video seemed to be some really intense yoga. I only played the beginner yoga session and it was so hard that I could only do about 10 minutes. IT IS TOUGH, just like Jillian. It was a lot about strength. It seemed like more than just a normal yoga workout.
This is an excellent workout! It hits all areas of the body and is a real challenge. I take a kickboxing class and my instructor suggested the Jillian Michaels DVD's for my off days and I'm really glad that she did because they work just like her class! They tone and make you lose weight! I highly recommend the Jillian Michaels workout DVD's and I have 5 of them!

This isn't the best kickboxing routine I have done. The upper and lower body workouts are just okay. I found myself reverting to a similar move I learned during my years of doing Tae Bo (earlier DVDs) because I find the form better and the moves more effective. The moves in the ab routine are unnecessarily complicated. It is possible to get a good workout with straight forward moves that won't lead to possible injury. I was excited to try this workout given the reviews, but I wish I had not wasted my money.
I have back problems so this was the PERFECT workout for me. I also appreciate how there is an associate in the back who shows \"moderated\" moves that helps you if you're new to exercising or still getting the hang of the \"moves\" OR if you are like me and aren't able to accomplish all of the suggested exercises. I have been very pleased with the results--toned muscles and more stamina. Not for someone who is looking for a high impact, immediate-results type program, but that's not what I was looking for. Also great because of the time--everyone can work in a 10-minute workout. It's great! I highly recommend it!
I did this dvd throughout my last pregnancy and am getting it for this pregnancy. I liked that is was no too long and not too slow and the poses were challenging enough but they gave options to make it easier for beginners or for women further along.
I purchased this product because I have such a busy schedule and needed something that I can work into my schedule.\nThis product is great because it has five 10 minute workouts and I can either do all 5 or 1 if I'd like.\nIt also give you the option of creating your own personal workout. So if I want to do Abs and Buns and thighs. I will pick those two 10 min workouts.\n\nI love this product it fits right into my busy mom schedule and recommend to anyone whether you are busy single person or busy mom.
