Editorial Reviews

When Jillian Michaels says "you can lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days" by following her 20-minute-a-day workout, believe her. There's a reason her 30 Day Shred workout has become a national hit: it works. But anyone who's ever seen Michaels work out with contestants on The Biggest Loser knows it's not necessarily going to be easy. The 30 Day Shred features three 20-minute workouts, each of which features, in rapid succession, short bursts of strength, cardio, and abs, and a cool-down. Sound easy? Think again. Even the beginner-level workout will have users' heart rates up. Michaels allows no resting between each short burst of exercise, which is part of why the results happen so quickly. The transitions between strength, which can feature classic moves like pushups or reps with small weights, and cardio, and then between cardio and abs, are a mere second or two. But that pacing helps guarantee the results that Michaels touts. "This helps you burn more fat and more calories, and gets you toned that much faster," Michaels exhorts as she zips through the exercises. There are a few modified moves for true beginners, but even for them, Michaels doesn't cut much slack; everyone has to do real jumping jacks, and a lot of them. "I have 400-pound people who can do jumping jacks," Michaels says "and if they can do it, you can do it!" The only thing you need to jump into the 30 Day Shred is a set of small hand weights, and, if you have a hard floor, a mat for the floor moves. Otherwise, commit 20 minutes a day for a month, and get that lean, shredded body you've always wanted. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

Jillian Michaels is TV's toughest trainer, but she is committed to getting big results. As your own personal trainer, Jillian will guide you through her exclusive 3-2-1 Interval System that combines strength, cardio and abs to blast through calories for a dramatic 30 DAY SHRED. The program includes three complete 20-minute workouts which progress by level of intensity. Start with Level 1 and advance through Level 3 – in no time you'll achieve a lean, shredded body.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Amazing! March 28, 2008
I had never purchased a Jillian Michaels DVD before b/c of the hit or miss reviews. So when I heard raves about this one, I decided to give it a shot and I am so glad I did. This is an absolute butt-kicker workout. I am an intermediate/advanced exerciser (I work out 5-6 days a week) so I figured I could see what Level 1 was all about and move onto Level 2 right away. Listen to me folks--these workouts are HARD. Level 2 was VERY difficult--a good difficult though, very challenging. When Jillian tells you to start at level 1, listen to her she knows what she's doing. I've been at this for about 5 days, and I already feel a difference in my body.
Jillian is tough--absolutely NO rest in this workout (not even for a sip of water) but that's what makes it go by so quickly, and it makes your body change, according to Jillian. You're done before you know it--but by the end you've gotten a kick butt workout and feel like you've really done something. She bases her workout on the 3-2-1 method: 3 mins strength, 2 mins cardio, 1 min abs. Her strength circuits remind me of Jari Love--compound exercises that work the upper and lower body simultaneously. The cardio is good as well: a lot of jumping, so watch those knees (she has a modifier for beginner and lower impact) And the abs is straight up ab work--a variety of crunches and twists on the floor.
This is a great workout and I find Jillian to be tough but she's pretty likeable. Be warned though: she's no-nonsense. I think it's funny when during the stretch she admits she's not flexible and struggles to reach her legs on the floor. I thought "Ha, Ha, finally something I'm better at than Jillian!" lol
If you really want to get a good workout and to jumpstart your weight loss get this DVD you will not be disappointed. It's great for those who are short on time too and want to try something new; every workout is just under 30 mins!

3.0 out of 5 stars I wish there were more workouts in this DVD May 27, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First off, I would give it 3 ˝ stars. I've only done level one but it is a good, very intense work out. I felt great afterwards. Also, I really like the trainer. She motivated me to push my hardest to try and finish each exercise, which sometimes I couldn't do (and I consider myself to be in good shape). My biggest complaint about the DVD is that you are told to start with level 1 and then progress up to level 2, then level 3. But there is only one level 1 workout, one level 2 workout and one level 3 workout. As a result, you are doing the same workout every day until you can move up a level. This can get boring. In addition, you are working the same tired and sore muscles that you worked the day before. My other complaints are a bit petty: the music is terrible and you can't skip through some of the beginning stuff. As stated above, the workouts are great and extremely challenging but I wouldn't use this DVD alone.


I would now give this video 5 stars. One of the comments to my review suggested that I don't wait to move up in levels, rather, I could do each level so that I am not doing the same workout again and again. THANK YOU to that person. I am now switching around levels and I love it. Level 2 and 3 are harder but I follow the "easier" version of most of the exercises and make modifications to some of the aerobic exercises that may be too hard (or that I just may not like). This is now my favorite DVD. I love it because it is hard enough to actually replace the gym... and in only 25 min.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! YIKES! JILLIAN KICKS YOUR [...] April 2, 2008
By jmastro
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ok, if you're like me (overweight and unmotivated) and watch The Biggest Loser and wish you could be one of the contestants and have Jillian train you then you're in luck! Buy this DVD! I just received the dvd today and did the First Level today. It's been 2 and 1/2 hours since I finished and I'm still shaking and finding it hard to go up and down stairs. I can't even imagine what she puts those poor contestants through..LOL!

I have knee pains and feet pains and usually just walk at 3mph on my treadmill. Well, suffice to say I'm not seeing any weight loss. And let me be honest the real reason I have knee and feet problems is because I weigh too much. So I did the full on jumping modified jumping jacks in this workout...Jillian tells you straight, she has 400lb people doing full jumping jacks, you can too! And she was right. I sure as heck can't really do the push ups but I'm sure that I will be able to eventually if I keep doing this dvd everyday for 20 minutes.

And she's right, you can't do a workout for 20 minutes and expect it to be want easy, don't get this dvd. You want to sweat and really workout get this dvd!

I'm 5'4'' and 168 lbs. I will let you know my progress in my comments as time goes on. Good luck to everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!!!!!! December 10, 2009
By L. Lady
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've only written one other review for Amazon so believe me when I say this DVD is AWESOME!! I had been going to the gym and power walking for months. During those months, I had only lost 8 pounds. Desperate, I purchased P90X and after a couple of weeks and realizing I needed to purchase so much equipment to complete the workouts, I gave that up. After searching through Amazon Customer Reviews, I found Jillian Michaels' DVD highly rated...and the price was also right. Another selling point was the only equipment I needed was a couple of dumbbells and a mat. Even though I had never heard of Jillian Michaels (I've never watched the Biggest Loser) I purchased the 30 Day Shred, not expecting too much and figuring I'd quit in 2 weeks.

Well, 3 months and 35 pounds later, I can say this DVD is all the workout you'll need. The workouts are only 25 minutes long (no excuse for busy women), but they're tough. After a couple of weeks and thinking you can't take anymore, you'll notice your body changing. After another 2 weeks, you'll notice the pounds melting off. In less than 3 months, I have went from a size 16 to a size 8 and that's without any extreme dieting.

Again, I must stress, the workouts are tough. There have been a few times that I've cursed at the TV, hoping Jillian would hear me and ease up. But after the workout is over (and my heart stops trying to pound its way off my chest), I feel wonderful. Trust me, completing her workouts, especially workout 3 (there are 3 different workouts), is a great accomplishment. I'm over 40 and haven't felt this great in years. I just gave up my gym membership and have purchased her other DVD,

Is this for obese people too?
I am about 100 pounds overweight! I got this DVD two months ago, and without making ANY changes in my diet, and doing this DVD four times a week, I've lost 20 pounds. I'm ecstatic...all of my work clothes are nearly falling off of me.

Did anyone lose weight with this?
I think Jillian's claim of 20 pounds in 30 days is on the fast and loose side. (and probably not prudent from a health perspective) I'm on day 29 of daily Shred, 10 days on each level, and have lost 10 pounds, 2 inches from hips, 1.5 inches from waist, .5 inch from upper thigh. I'm down one... Read More

Anybody injure their knee doing this workout?
Same here. The jumping lunges in Level Three were murder on my knees. If you have a ligament tear or just weak ligaments (I'm getting my torn ACL reconstructed), then you won't want to jump or twist in the way that some of these workouts demand. BUT, having written that, I must say that this is... Read More

Do you need a lot of room to do this 30 day shred?
No. I can do it in my room, which is TINY. If you have enough room to do jumping jacks and sit ups, you're good.
