Lift & Shred

Lift & Shred contains Jillian Michael's only (so far!) pure weight lifting workouts. Most of her workouts are metabolic workouts--cardio + strength workouts done in fast circuits so that you cannot lift heavy but get intense cardio. I was very excited when this DVD came out but I had also just found out I had breast … Continue reading Lift & Shred


Beginner Shred

Yet another workout DVD I never thought I would purchase--Jillian Michael's Beginner Shred. I love Jillian Michaels' workouts but they are too much for me right now, so I decided it was time to give this a try. This DVD consists of three approx. 25 minute workouts that become progressively harder, so Workout #1 is … Continue reading Beginner Shred

Killer Cardio

Jillian Michaels Killer Cardio DVD contains 2 short cardio workouts. They are both structured in tabata format (20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of recovery). They both have 4 circuits containing 4 exercises and each circuit is repeated. I really enjoyed both of these workouts. They are not the most intense workouts I … Continue reading Killer Cardio

10 Minute Body Transformation, 2nd Edition

A second edition! I was very excited when I saw this. I love Jillian's first 10 Minute Body Transformation. It was very well done and it is one of her workouts I return to more frequently than her others. Since it is set up in approximately 10 minute segments, it's perfect to use as an … Continue reading 10 Minute Body Transformation, 2nd Edition

No More Trouble Zones

I probably purchased it as soon as it was released in 2009, did it a few times and for some reason moved on. I did … Continue reading No More Trouble Zones

6 Week Six Pack

Though I own just about everything else fitness-wise Jillian Michaels has put out there, I have resisted her core workouts. The main reason being I am not a fan of long ab workouts. I like to keep my ab work to 10 minutes or less at the end of a workout, or incorporated somehow throughout … Continue reading 6 Week Six Pack

10 Minute Body Transformation is the latest collection of workouts on DVD by Jillian Michaels. This one is a little different from her other workouts. It contains 5 approximately 10 minute workouts, plus a separate warm up and  cool down that you can add onto the workout(s). I really, really loved this DVD.
