I’m curious to see this, too! I will say that I saw advertisements for a video called Turbo Jam this weekend and it’s JUST like the Turbo Kick class I take, which is a major butt-whooping. I find it hard to get all into the spirit of working out in my own home, though, on carpet. I’m anxious to see how people like her videos, though, and if they’re challenging enough.

1) I am very active and I tried her 30 Day Shred video last night – did the first 20 minute workout and practically died! So yes, it is challenging.

2) I only ever did this one, so no opionion on others.

3) I have not tried her Wii game because it has dreadful reviews on Amazon.

Jillian’s Videos can be very challenging and work very well.  My daughter (who lost 40 lbs) uses her videos when she can’t get to the gym and she goes 1 – 1 1/2 5 days a week and she says Jillian still Kicks her butt.

I also did the 30 Day Shred one day that we skipped the gym and I wanted to keep my activity up. This back when I had been going tothe gym 5-6 days a week for months already. It was challenging indeed.

I’ve also only done that one video though.

Haven’t tried her Wii game either because it got bad reveiws. I based my decision on a review I read on Sparkpeople.com’s daily blog. I was quite disappointed. However, I don’t use Wii Fit as a tool for “exercise” either as for me it doesn’t do the same as my gym workout. I like the yoga and ST for toning but that’s about it. Its FUN but I can’t use it as my exercise regimen.

I like to do the 30 day shred as a 60 min workout, doing levels 3-2-1.  Her 45 min dvd’s are also good and the cardio is pretty killer.  The higher your fitness level the higher intensity you should do it, she gives you high/low options so take the high and you’ll be sweating in no time!

Just got the 30 day shred on amazon $9.49 with shipping.  Kicked mine and my fiance butt and we had been running 2 miles a day and biking 5 plus weights so so far I like it and that was level one:)  Hopefully it gets me in shape even more:)  Still got a lot of weight to loose and sculpting to do:)

@ejs4y8: I have turbo jam and I like it a lot.  It comes with like 4-5 different workouts, including just lower body or a quicker one, and I like that flexibility.  I like it because it is like the aerobics/dance type classes in the gym so definitely would recommend it.  My problem is getting bored with workout DVD’s and wanting to do different things (plus my husband would say actually getting motivated to DO something Embarassed) so that there are a few different workouts help a lot.

I’ve been going to the gym 3+ days per week, hiking and strength training on my own for the past year. Now that I’m 2 months away from the wedding I decided to intensify things. I bought Jillian’s 30-day Shred after reading the reviews from the Bees. I have been doing Level 1 for the past 2 weeks. Her 20 minute work-outs are far more intense than any of my visits to the gym. I was very surprised. It really works. My body is far more lean than it ever was with my own work-out regime. In 2 weeks I have noticed a significant difference – especially in my upper arms. Almost Michelle Obama arms! Wink

Last night I started Level 2 for the first time and thought I was going puke near the end. LOL. I really enjoy the variety of work outs and that she offers easy – challenging styles of movements for each circut. I still squeeze in visits to the gym for some cardio and my hikes when the weather is good, but the Shred is my favorite. I’m able to fit in the quick work outs around my busy schedule which is great. Trips to the gym can tack an hour + into my schedule and still not do as much. Love it!

I lifted weights 2x a week for an entire semester and run 25 miles a week, and No More Trouble Zones reduced me to a trembling pile of Jello!

i’ve been doing the shred off and on but seem to get bored with doing it day after day.  do you think you could alternate the shred for trouble zones every other day and still get good results?
