Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Reviews

Whether or not you watch her in The Biggest Loser, you have seen or heard about Jillian Michaels's intense personal training methods. She screams and she threatens, she pushes and she intimidates, but most important - she gets results.

If you are the sort that needs some motivation to get up from the couch and work out, the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred brings her special style of drive to your living room.

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Reviews

You have lots of options if you want to read up on the experiences of 30 Day Shred users. Fitness websites have forums for reviewers to post their opinions, and bloggers have shared their successes (or failures) openly. Many love the convenience of at-home exercise, and they comment on how quickly they can get it done.

Each day requires only 27 minutes, which includes the warm-up and cool-down. Some who track the calories burned boast more than two hundred in less than half an hour.

If you are looking to purchase the DVD online, reviews indicate that there are lots of discount options. It is often available for around $10. Large box stores also carry it, but it is often sold out - evidently because it is so popular.

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Reviews - Does It Work

While opinions of Jillian herself might be mixed, reviewers of the program do agree - it works. Overall, the comments indicate that those who have had best success are already in moderate shape, with of goal of losing only 20 - 30 pounds.

You might find it too much of a challenge if you have not been exercising regularly. That's ok. Take it slow and do what you can, without over exhausting yourself. The key, according to users, is to keep at it day after day, until you build up to the full routine. Reviewers found that Jillian provides guidance in modifying routines for unique needs, and she gives careful instruction and excellent tips on completing the moves properly.

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Reviews - Weight Loss

When you pick up the DVD you might be skeptical, because right on the front it suggests you will lose 20 pounds in 30 days. Though most don't see that kind of rapid weight loss, reviews consistently say they are seeing inches and pounds fall off quickly. Of course, Jillian herself points out that you must maintain appropriate eating habits in order to see the most success. Many reviews point out that they saw the most weight loss in the first couple of weeks that they used the DVDs. You might find, like many, that if you have hit a weight loss plateau, the 30 Day Shred will get you jump started again.

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Reviews - Before and After

Reviewers are saying that they love the 30 Day Shred, because it has a complete workout in one short session. After the warm-up, there is three minutes of strength training, two of cardio, and one minute of abdominal exercises - then the cycle repeats twice more. You can expect, based on users’ experiences, that once you have made it through the 30 days, you will have added noticeable muscle tone, more endurance, and greater abdominal strength.

One word of caution - though Jillian tells us her philosophy is to overcome pain, you must stop and see your physician if you feel any sharp or persistent discomfort. While some exercise related aches are normal, especially for newbies, reviewers note they have damaged their knees from this program.


In terms of an overall weight loss solution, you can do a lot better. The program lacks a lot in terms of support (none), interactive media, educational resources and online media. As you can see from the Top 10 diets list, most of the popular diets nowadays come with online media and support. Books and DVDs are pretty much dead.
