5.0 out of 5 stars I am at a pretty good fitness level September 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
My background: I am at a pretty good fitness level; I exercise on average 6 times a week, using mostly Jillian Michaels' DVDs. I have already mastered Jillian's 30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, etc. With that being said, I am not a beginner and you might be wondering why I even ordered this DVD. Well, I am scheduled for a minor surgery in two weeks; and although the surgery itself is minor, I will be on pelvic rest for 6 weeks during my recovery. According to my doctor, NO EXERCISE whatsoever during my recovery (I even have to walk at a slow pace). Not being able exercise for 6 weeks will definitely leave my muscles atrophied, and I will need to ease my way back into exercise once my doctor gives me the green light. I pre-ordered this DVD in hopes that it will be a good workout regimen after my surgery. And IT WILL BE!

I received the DVD today and I've already tried levels 1 & 2; and I previewed level 3. As usual, the workouts are done in circuits. Each level contains 3 circuits (doing each circuit 2 x). Each workout is about 25 minutes long (including warm up and cool down). Jillian does NOT utilize her famous 3-2-1 system here (3 min strength, 2 min cardio & 1 min abs). Instead, these workouts are primarily strength training exercises; in fact, there are NO cardio intervals at all in levels 1 and 2. However, my heart rate was still high at certain points due to the fast repetitions (and I used heavier weights). The wonderful thing about circuit training (especially the way Jillian does it), is that you still pretty much get a cardio component during your workout due to all the different moves and supersets. Jillian incorporates all the basic, yet essential strength training moves such as lunge variations, squats, arm rows, modified push ups, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's perfect for what I was looking for September 12, 2014
By Michi

These workouts are much gentler on my knees than the original Shred. It's perfect for what I was looking for: Short workout, affordable and very well produced. Plus, it's Jillian Michaels, she's the best. Can't go wrong with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars love it. fresh and fun September 10, 2014
Absolutely love it. It is different from the 30ds... Its more of a mix of exercises for shorter times. There are still circuits but they seem further apart. The warm up is quicker and not as exhausting. Th circuits consist of several different moves for 30 seconds a piece. I feel like there is more concentration on abs and butt than in her previous 30DS dvd.... And I've only done workout one so far loving the tushi exercises!!! Get this DVD ...it really is only 20 min. Her 30ds said 20 minutes but was longer. this is 20!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great beginner dvd September 30, 2014
Verified Purchase
Great beginner dvd!
Level 1 and 2 are just strength training-3 circuits. Level 3 was strength training and cardio and made me sweat. The workouts were more 25 mins each and not 20. This is a warm up and cool down.
I consider myself on an intermediate fitness level, but I will be keeping this dvd to do on days when I want an "easier" workout. I love her enthusism and kindess in this dvd and I LOVE that she doesn't cuss so I would consider this a family friendly fitness dvd.
Well done Jillian!
If you want something tough (because you're not at beginner fitness level) or need Jillian to yell and cuss at you-this dvd is NOT for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Kinder and Gentler Jillian September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase
A Kinder and Gentler Jillian, it sure seems like it. Jillian's coaching style is a 180 degrees from her normal drill instructor routine. Maybe motherhood has mellowed her out or maybe she is tempering her personality to suit the fact she is promoting a beginner style routine. Both workouts 1 and 2 are exclusively strength. The third workout has cardio mixed in with strength. She explains in detail each exercise so that a beginner can benefit by knowing why they are doing the routine. I am an intermediate-advanced exerciser. I am not into hard core kill myself workouts any more. I used to workout till I threw up and that was before I bought a HRM many years ago. Now I haven't done the actual routine but previewed the video to see what Jillian offered in a beginner's workout. She does mention that this workout can be used for beginners, someone who has been away from working out for awhile, and last but not least new moms. Now this workout can be as hard as you make it. Increase the intensity on levels 1 and 2 by using heavier weights or following Jillian's advice of trying some of her advanced demonstrations (often done by Anita and sometimes Jillian) - The set itself is nice clean and uncluttered. Jillian brought back Natalie and Anita for this exercise dvd. Jillian's running commentary is encouraging and her detailed instruction makes the workout definitely doable for a serious beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice jillian September 23, 2014
Verified Purchase
Love it! I'm six and a half months pregnant and was looking for a low impact dvd to accommodate my changing body. I just don't do the laying on the back and tummy moves. I have recommended this dvd to my mother in law who just bought it the other day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great workout from Jillian October 10, 2014
By Mo833
I own 30 day shred and ripped in 30 and rarely make it past the first level, but did find those manageable. Something about turning 49 seemed to change things. I have been getting injured more often and my stamina had decreased. I decided it was time to decrease the intensity of my workouts in order to see if I could build back up.

This DVD is perfect. I find it manageable with the option of increasing the intensity within each work out over time. A lot of great basics for a good all around work out in the span of 20 minutes. Jillian is gentler in this. I've always liked the interaction between her and the other women in her DVDs. They feel like old friends now. I was concerned about this being too easy, but after reading other reviews I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did.
