WOW I WISH I HAD THIS BEFORE I GOT 30 DAY SHRED!
A lot of the moves in this are similar to those in level one of 30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, No More Trouble Zones, and Banish Fat Boost Metabolism, just slowed down so you can get the form right. If you want to start somewhere, it's here. Work with these workouts for the first month, then pick up the 30 Day Shred and start on level one. You'll have more confidence and endurance! To this day my favorite Jillian DVD is Banish Fat Boost Metabolism. It has the best calorie burn for your time, but I had to work up to it. You can do it! Good luck!
Jillian talks you through each move, gives thorough instruction re. each movement, explains the purpose for each move, and encourages you along the way. Her four on-camera participants are Biggest Loser cast members, all of whom have gone through her workouts and have lost weight, so that's encouraging. Also, the feeling is upbeat, the exercises ranging from low to medium impact, and at the end of each workout five people get together and congratulate each other and you for a job well done....and close by saying, "see you tomorrow."
The tape is divided into two separate sets of circuits, which are meant to be alternated throughout the week.
It's encouraging, a great way to start your day, and truly provides you with a set of skills (using every day items) to teach you how to safely and correctly workout, push yourself, and get stronger.
In short, you should buy this video - it's worth its weight (and then some) in gold.
This workout shows Jillian in a different light she's encouraging, she jokes around, but most of all no yelling! The workout I found to be intense. You have 6 circuits and you do each circuit 3 times before going to the next. She gives recommendations on how to make the cardio and other exercises easier or harder depending on your fitness level. The people in the video who do the exercises (each circuit is just Jillian and one other person) are "The Biggest Loser " contestants from past episodes which helped to motivate me. I would suggest at least having 2 pairs of different weights, a chair, and a mat for ab work.
I would not recommend this to intermediate or advanced exercisers because the DVD obviously says for beginners. I was drenched in sweat afterwards.
The only negatives of this workout is there's no warm up and no cool down. So I just used a different DVD for the cool down and stretched like crazy. I still felt it in my muscles the next day.
