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.
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

On 1/1/2018, I started eating healthier breakfasts and lunches. I had a yogurt for breakfast and low-carb lunch (sweet potatoes, lentils, veggies, apple/almond butter, half of a whole grain chicken sandwich type of things). For dinner, I mostly ate healthy and if we went out I would just pick the lowest calorie salad on the menu.
I went to the doctor and they weighed me at 213. Then, I started the 30 Day Shred. I’m almost at the end of the 30 Days and I weigh 186 according to my home scale which we just bought and is accurate (also verified by my husband). I did not change my eating habits, I just tried to eat healthier.
I did Level 1 for 10 days and then went straight to Level 3. I only did Level 2 for 1 day as it started off with way too much jumping for me (I hate jumping up and down). When I started Level 1, it was HARD. By the end of the 10 days, it started feeling easier so I felt like I could jump to Level 3. Level 3 had butt kicks, walking push-ups, Supermans, boxing with weights, sit-ups, jump squats, etc.
There’s two girls on the tape, one harder and one with modifications and I did follow the modification one sometimes - I didn’t always do the hard girl even in Level 1. In Level 3, I switched the “rockstar jumps” with high knees and kicks just because again, I had jumping up and down. worked out in the mornings because if I try to do it after work I will not do it.
RESULTS: My watch feels looser, I have more energy, my pants feel looser, my stomach isn’t as protruding when I lay down in bed. I’m still not down to my goal weight of 150. I do think that I lost a lot of weight because I was not doing anything before AND because I have more to lose (if you’re already smaller this will help you with toning), but I do credit this video for getting me off my butt and melting some easy weight off of me. I will continue using this DVD and will update my review if something changes.
Hope this helps! You can do it! Make it through 10 days and then you’ll be unstoppable!
However, somewhere along the line, I lost my old copy. I had to replace it with this new one.
Unlike most other at home workout discs I've used, this version requires you watch ALL the introductory BS before every single workout. The option to skip to the main menu or fast forward has been disabled.
What's the point of a 20-minute workout video if you have to waste 10 minutes watching advertisements and speeches before you can actually work out?
If you can, I highly recommend buying this via Prime Video and doing the workout that way, rather than buying the disc. You'll be able to fast forward through the intro crap and get your daily workout done much faster.
Either way... definitely a fantastic at home workout video.
Jillian is completely normal in this series-no shouting, no yelling-just totally and completely normal which is wonderful and makes for a really great video that I hope I can stick with. The workouts are hard but the moves are simple. You can go at your own pace but keep moving-modify the moves-or crank them up depending on your fitness level. I'm pretty out of shape and overweight so my first go-around I'm not using weights and kind of struggling with the cardio/jumping. There is a LOT of jumping. If you have knee/ankle problems consult your doctor and invest in a good ankle brace.
Larger gals need some real sports bras-your daily wear isn't going to work on this one. Get good sneakers, and if you have hard floors get a yoga mat. If you're overweight and have a tummy that bounces uncomfortably when you jump then get some high waisted yoga pants (maternity section!) or a bodysuit to keep that under control as well. Anything you can do to get your body comfortable so you can jump around is encouraged. You don't want to quit because you couldn't get the right bra or the right shoe.
I was sweating buckets after the first workout (went fast) and day 2 was feeling pretty sore in my quads. I'll update again when I'm finished. Hopefully I can stick with it. If I can't, just know, it's me and not the workout video. It's pretty awesome.
Update: this works. I did not lose weight, but I lost over 10" doing phase 1 the whole time (I am sooo out of shape). Measurements -neck, bust, waist, hips, thigh, calf
Starting: 15" x 44"x 39"x 45"x 25"x 16"
Ending: 14"x 41.5"x 35" x 43"x 23.5" x 15.5"

Give it a go, certainly not easy to begin with but work through it and start to feel great very quickly.
If you don't mind 20 mins of hell every day then I definitely recommend.
