Over the course of months of exercise using Jillian's DVDs, I lost weight DRAMATICALLY. (To give you an idea, I went from a size 28 down to a size 16. Keep in mind I'm six foot tall here.) There was no magic, no bull, just hard work, encouragement, and inspiration. The thing about Jillian is that while she's earned and deserves her reputation for being a tough trainer, she's not an unpleasant one. There's just something about her I respond well to; she's firm but fair during her workouts, and her enthusiasm for what she's doing is infectious.
Unfortunately, late last year, in addition to getting complacent, my husband and I were also hammered by weeks where nothing seemed to go right and we had to deal with one calamity after another... a burst water main, our car breaking down (repeatedly), the declining health of a family member... it just went on and on, and long story short, I fell into depression and packed nearly all the weight back on. (I was back to a size 22.) To say I was embarrassed was an understatement; I felt ashamed of myself, that I had let not only myself but my husband down, and instead of getting back on ye olde proverbial horse, I just made things worse.
Four weeks ago I had enough. For four weeks solid, I have done an hour of exercise every day (30 Day Shred and 6 Week Six Pack) and I've already lost over twenty pounds. That was the worst part; getting back on the scale for the first time in months and seeing how far I'd let myself go. The work is hard, but I feel better than I have in years...Read more ›
I never wrote a review, but feel like this time I really have to.
I've been trying to lose weight for years and years. The last 5 kilos... you know they say the last few kilos to lose are the hardest. I tried everything - gym, personal trainer, classes, running, swimming, Carol Vonderman detox, doing 400 abs exercise on daily basis, Tracy Anderson abs, slimming tablets, kelp, chlorella, Udos Choice Ultimate Oil Blend, protein drinks... you name it. But nothing really worked! (well the personal trainer was great, but expensive and time consuming - as soon as I stopped the weight piled back up. Also I believe the detox was great but I already eat healthy and drink 3 litres of water every day, so not much of a difference for me after following it for 28 days)
Anyway I came across to this DVD and boy oh boy! Jillian suggested to work out 5x a week. I thought no way I could do that as I was still running 2-3x a week and swimming 2x a week.
But after just ONE week of doing this DVD I lost 1.5 kilos and 6 cm of my belly! Unheard of! I cannot believe it and am sooo happy! Losing the stubborn weight actually makes me want to work out and do the DVD every day.
I dropped the running and swimming to 1x a week, and doing the DVD instead. I can't wait to get to the end of week 6.
But don't get me wrong - it is hard work! Very hard work. Takes only 30 minutes which is a comfortable lenght, but you def feel every minute of it and wish for it to end and gasp for drink of water.
It has two levels - I started on level two simply because I thought I could deal with it. Done so much in the past so should be ok - or so I thought.Read more ›
Been doing level 1 for 5 weeks, I see some change but not much. I've only lost 4 pounds in those 5 weeks and I cut junk food. I'm going to start running more, I wouldn't depend your workouts solely on this. May work with additional workouts (running, other julian videos) and a healthy diet. my tummy does look smaller but I expected more. Time to diet and add another workout video or routine.
(Added photo first one is before the right one is after, I've lost about an inch in 5 weeks, eh not too impressed but I will continue to do level one until I feel comfortable with level two)..

|Does anyone rotate this DVD with Jillian's other workouts?||
I've been stuck with the same 10lbs in my midsection for about a year now. It's that last ten that no matter what I seem to do it wouldn't budge.

|help in the midsection?||
6 wk 6 pack has more challenging, more advanced moves, but Trouble Zones is a much longer workout. I own both (and all of Jillian's other workout DVDs) and I actually prefer 6 pack. I'd suggest getting both DVDs & working your way up to 6 pack.
Just remember that, as Jillian says, 'You can eat... Read More

|Did anyone actually see results in six weeks||
Yes but you will probably not going to get a six pack to be honest but you will lose inches in your stomach.

If you have the classical (straight up and down) incision, I would ask your OB doc if this workout would be OK. Sounds like enough time may have passed for you to be fine.
