I did it for about a month or so and then felt like i needed to change it up. It is good for starting out for sure. I recently started to follow a trainer on YouTube (for free!) and she’s changes the workout every week for 12 weeks.

MsBeer:  I’ve done 30DS several times and I think it’s really fun, but I’m also a little in love with Jillian. I think the easiest way to make sure you do it is to schedule it into your day. If you follow the workout schedule and do it at 6pm every time, it’ll become part of your routine.

MsBeer:  I have all of Jillian’s videos. I think Ripped in 30 is actually better than 30 Day Shred, but both are good starting points. When I did the video for the first time, I was pooped! After doing in consistently, it became much easier and I had to change it up.

Ashley0329:  Can I ask which trainer you follow? I’m always looking for new ways not to get bored!

I’ve done it on and off but never for more than 10 days in a row.. never lost a pound though – maybe its time to try it again!

I would say the 30 DS is good for starting out. I have done it a few times but it got to the point where I felt it was a bit too easy/too short (it’s only 20 minutes really) and have moved on to other Jillian DVDs. I found it really hard to start with though but weirdly found that I enjoyed level 1 less that the other two, so just bear that in mind if you start it and don’t like it, it’s worth sticking with it because the other levels are different.

I now alternate her ‘burn fat boost metabolism’ and ‘no more trouble zones’ DVDs, which are a bit longer (around 50-55 minutes including warm up and cool down) and harder and am seeing better results than I ever saw with 30DS on it’s own.

Don’t focus on weight to much though (its hard to do I know), I have only lost about 13lb but have lost lots of inches and clothes fit me that never fitted me before even when I was actually lighter on the scales than I am now (if that makes sense?). I can’t recommend enough measuring yourself before you start as well as weighing in.

Good luck, I love Jillian, she is tough but I have never been this fit or toned in my entire life.

Sorry – meant to add – If its cardio you wantthen try ‘boost fat burn metabolism’, its basically all cardio and no weights.

The first time I did that video I couldn’t walk normally for days, and I wasn’t in terrible shape to begin with. I think they’re great to supplement in on busy days, but I got bored of it pretty quickly.

somethingblue04:  It is called Bikini Body Mommy but the workouts are for everyone even if you don’t have kid’s. I don’t have any and have been doing it for a month and lost over 5 lbs and lost half an inch all over. It’s a mix of HIIT and strength training. I love it. You can search for her on you tube or go to her site http://www.bikinibodymommy.com and find info there or on Facebook.

MsBeer:  It is a great tool if completed.  I did it for 45 days over the long Winter months when I could not be outside running.  I transitioned thru each level every two weeks or so, and by the end saw a difference in my overall tone, etc.  Not to mention, I did not lose endurance, which was my main concern over the winter.  

Committing to 20 minutes a day was easy too!  With any workout regimen, however, especially to see results, you need to pair a healthy diet with it.
