I've only done level one of the workout and WHEW, do I feel accomplished. Jillian begins the video by stating that she encourages you to do both levels of the workout back to back. She got the side eye from me because that simply wasn't happening, at least the first time around. I'm quite sure I could work up to it, because this workout is FUN (please note that I generally hate cardio). I hurled a of couple four letter words at her through out the workout, but never wanted to stop. Some of the movements are a bit ODD, but I'm not a boxer and I've never done jiu jitsu so it makes sense. In Jillian fashion, you complete each circuit twice. Level one ends around 35 mins. At this point Jillian asks if you want to move on to the next level. If not, you can finish with a 5 minute warm up. I previewed level two and there are a ton of new moves. Level two is about 45 mins if you skip the warm up (same one from level 1). Jillian adds modifications throughout (So glad to see Basheera back--love her) for higher and lower levels of difficulty. If you aren't in shape I would imagine that you wouldn't enjoy this workout at first. If you're a Jillian fan who follows the previous videos, you will love it.

First of all, I'm calling B.S! on each and every bad review I've seen of hers wherein someone claims to be unchallenged by Jillian's training. Really? I don't believe you, not for a minute. I'm in better shape than the vast majority of people I run into on a daily basis and I can't even get through her DVDs without a few breathers here and there, and I still use some of the beginner modifications! If you're not challenged, you're not doing it right: this workout challenges even her assistants, and I find it impossible to believe that any of the women who come on here complaining that they don't feel challenged are in anywhere near as good of shape as they are.
I personally love Jillian's badass personality, but even if you don't, play the video with sound the first time and then mute it and play music instead after that. I do that anyway because I get tired of hearing the same things time after time.
I own all but one of Jillian's DVDs available on Amazon, and I rotate them all daily. Not a day goes by that something isn't sore. Having gone from a cardio workout routine before starting Jillian DVDs, I had a low body fat percentage to start with, so I haven't lost pounds, but I have lost fat for sure! My arms are more toned than ever before, my waistline is more defined, and I've got one heck of a donkey butt, which I am LOVING!
I like that in each new DVD, Jillian offers something new to her followers. There are few repeated moves, and she mixes up combos on moves that she does repeat so that we don't get bored.Read more ›
Starting off - I've done many of her videos, including 30-day Shred, Ripped in 30, No more trouble zones, Banish fat, boost metabolism, Yoga Meltdown, Body Revolution, Hard Body, and Shred it with weights. Ultimately, after doing most of these videos, while I love all of them, I will admit that I've been starting to feel like many contain basically the same moves, just mixed up and maybe with small variations. Ultimately, everything seems a bit of a letdown since Body Revolution, which I absolutely LOVE.
I have multiple reasons for liking this workout:
1) You can do each workout individually. As many reviewers have stated, there is some discrepancy regarding the length of the videos - the first is 41 minutes, the second is 52 minutes, each of those including the warm-up and cool-down. This is slightly longer than most of her other "30-minute" videos which all range in length from 27 minutes to 35 minutes, including warm-up and cool down.
2) You can combine the two workouts. I found that individually, they were challenging but not overwhelming. Together, they made for a really intense workout that I had difficulty getting through, even though I'm in excellent shape.
3) For those of us that are getting a bit bored with some of the same moves present in the other videos, this one contains interesting and challenging variations. If you have done her videos (especially Body revolution) you will have seen many of these moves, just not all in one video.
4) It is a challenge. I was finding that after finishing the higher levels of all of the other videos, that nothing was truly challenging anymore.Read more ›
