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.

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.

Beware of how the reviewers here have defined "beginner" because most of them assume a beginner is someone who was previously in shape, but just dropped off the fitness cycle for a while. For those of you who have never worked out (ever) or for those of you who have more than 50 pounds of weight to lose, this may not be the best choice for you. Try Jane Fonda's latest workouts or Richard Simmon's for a real beginner level.

If you really want to do this, you need to be able to do at least the following (even in level 1) without having your body get in the way:

1. Squats
2. Lunges
3. Pushups (the modified ones are still on the floor)
4. Tricep Dips
5. Planks
6. Bridges
7. Crunches

You can modify most of these by making the movement as small as possible. For example, do 2 inch squat wherein you lower your body only 2 inches during the squat exercises, or do wall pushups and planks. If you do this workout often enough (at least 2x a week), you should see improvement in terms of increasing the amount of movement for each exercise. You just might have to stick with the level 1 workout for a while until you can get to the point of doing regular pushups/planks/squats, etc. Then you can move on.

That all being said, this is a great workout for building up strength and increasing fitness level, hence the reason so many "return to exercise" reviewers like it. I am not a fan of Jillian's other DVDs primarily because of her "gotta be merciless" attitude in those DVDs, but this one is different. If Jillian quit The Biggest Loser because they always made her out to be a boot camp drill Sargent, then I would say this DVD is probably closer to the reality of Jillian. She doesn't hold your hand, and she doesn't abuse you.

This program is absolutely perfect for anyone who has 'let themselves go', or is borderline overweight and out of shape and may not be ready to jump into a more intense workout program right off the bat. I'm a 38 year old female, who used to be very athletic, but had put on an extra 25 lbs over the past few years. This program really worked for me. Each of the three workouts increase incrementally in difficulty. I did each level at least 10 times, but not in 30 consecutive days. I lost 10 lbs almost immediately before I even finished level 2. This entire program helped me get back into 'intermediate' physical condition so that I am more prepared to move on to other exercise programs that would have been too intimidating had I attempted them without this initial conditioning. Not only did I lose fat/weight, I actually see a transformation in my body. I can actually see my obliques for the first time in a decade! And, my arms and shoulders don't jiggle anymore! I especially liked that even within each workout level, she also provides options for how you can do each move with varying degrees of difficulty. I did find this challenging, and I was only ~25 lbs overweight. I do think that if I was in a lot worse shape that this might not have been 'beginner' enough. I recommend this to anyone interested in starting or getting back into a fitness lifestyle, whether you want to shed pounds or tone muscles. You can't go wrong with this program.
