I started this yesterday. I wanted to do something when it was too cold to run. I am not sure if I will be able to do this on my running days. I am also near the end of C25k.

Try her body revolution. It is 90 days and GREAT....starts of slow and with low impact then gradually increases. I have been doing it for a month now and just did 10 push ups (on my toes) with no problem and was in shock!! 30 minutes a day. It calls for 6 days a week but I do 5 and I am not following the meal plan and have seen results.

I also started JM 30 days. But I do have a question. What you girls do during your period? Do you still continue the training?

Just decided to give 30 day shred a try since my shins are starting to hurt from all of my running.

I've done the Shred several times, but I confess not for 30 days straight and mostly Level 1. I usually do it every other day and do other fitness activities the off days.

I'm 69. I can do Level 1 without many problems, but of course very sore if just starting out.

Level 2 is awful for me and I can only do some of the exercises correctly--some I have to change a little.

For some reason Level 3, which I've only done a few times, is easier for me than Level 2 and I don't have to change it much.

I don't plan on using it lose weight, really, since diet is the most important thing for losing. I use it to get in better shape. I can definitely tell a difference in my body if I am consistent.

Been fighting a sprained ankle that's still not right after a year and a calf pull so I haven't done it for several months.

emoticon 30DS

Hi, I just started day 1 level 1 today. I have been wanting to try it again. The last time I tried it I was unable to complete the whole DVD. But this time I am determined to keep going for 30 days whether they are consecutive or not.

It was tough today. But I do remember Level 1 more than I thought. I wanted to post on here to keep myself accountable.

Good luck!

I have to say it burned a lot! The cool-down portion helped with the soreness instantly. 7 hours later I did and hour of Zumba!

I haven't used mine in A LONG time, and broke it back out to start fresh. MAN, my upper arms felt it. *laughs.* But it's a GOOD kind of pain, as weird as that sounds. :)

When I did the shred...legs and arms were like jello. Couldn't believe how weak I was. I guess at 50 I should expect a little of that, but I'm not that weak anymore!! My arms and legs have definition now. It's been about a year since I actively did the workout. Now I do all sorts of spark videos everyday. Every once in a while I throw it back in the mix. Just love her workouts!

Funny...same thing happened to me with the knee clicking...my guess was that I was not in correct posture for the squats. Did you notice if your form was good?

I just did day 1 and was only able to do 10 minutes before I collapsed! She is a killer!! And my knee started clicking when I was doing squats. It didn't hurt but it grossed me out and worried me a bit, but back at it again later today or tomorrow!

so proud of myself to say that i finished my last day today of JM 30 day shred!

Wow I am so happy with the results. My fitness has significantly increased, and this very noticeable in other exercises and fitness classes!

I haven't yet weighed myself - but after 7 days I lost 2 pounds.

My husband has been commenting that my thighs look slimmer (as this is where I store most of my "stored energy") :D

My core is amazingly tight and firm! I can see slight definition now as opposed to before where it was just a flat stomach.

I know for sure if I had stuck to a cleaner/healthier eating plan the results would be more visible. However I cannot complain at all!

I really appreciated the motivational words that Jillian used - especially in level 2 during the pendulum lunges where she reminded us of why we are doing this, think of "jean shopping" or "swim suit shopping" !

I am heading out tomorrow to purchase Ripped in 30 days! Hopefully my meal planning will be a bit better planned!

I am on day 3 of level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. Wow - bit of a step up from level 1 but a great challenge. I am really enjoying this workout - I find it hard to motivate myself to work out for long periods so this is ideal - Jillian works you very hard and is very motivational. emoticon

I am now on day 8 of the 30 Day Shred and I am loving it!! I get up every morning before work at 6.15am to complete the dvd (not on the weekends!!!), then have a relaxing bath and get ready for my day. I feel doing the exercise first thing in the morning really sets me up for the day, I have found myself less tired and more energised.

I weighed myself on day 7 and had lost 7 pounds!!! This REALLY works!!! I am so happy with the progress, after this dvd is finished I will definitely be purchasing another Jillian Michaels dvd.

The first day was really hard and the next morning I was having alot of trouble walking down the stairs. I would say to everyone who is starting out the dvd, just keep with it and work through the pain!! Once you have done it for a couple of days your body is used to it and no longer hurts.

I hope I keep up the weight loss!!

Thanks xx

I just did this dvd for the first time this morning and I loved it. I was not familiar with Jillian but had heard that she was tough, but her style in this dvd was perfect for me. She was firm, but I thought very supportive and likable. I enjoyed working out "with" her.

I am on Day 5 of Level 2 and loving it. It is a HUGE challenge for me, but not so much that I can't do it. Level 2 is way harder than Level 1, makes me a little nervous for Level 3. emoticon

I was VERY sore the first few days of Level 1, but I pushed through it. She says in the beginning do it everyday, don't stop if you're sore. For me it took about 3 days, but it did pass. I started on a Thursday. Friday I was sore, Saturday I had trouble moving LOL, but I did it twice that day and then took a break on Sunday. By Monday I was good to go again.

The first week I lost 2 pounds and 2 inches, last week I didn't lose any weight BUT I did lose 5 inches. It definitely works, if you do the work. emoticon You must also eat right though. I am religious about watching my calories as well as doing the DVD everyday, if there's a day I know I won't be able to do it, I do it twice the day before. It's a commitment that you have to make.

I'm very excited to see the end result and keep going with it until it becomes easy and then I will move on to another one of her workouts. emoticon

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you!

Never trade what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

I'm not trying to look perfect... I just want to feel better, look great, know I'm healthy and be able to ROCK any outfit I choose.

I had completed the 30DS a little over a year ago and lost 2-3 in from my waist. Unfortunately, after breaking my wrist shortly after I had to stop exercising, then life gets in the way, and well, over a year later, I am back at it. I also had done her Ripped in 30 (MUCH tougher than the 30DS I think). I am currently doing both DVD's so I don't get bored with either. I do the 30DS for about 5-10 days, and the Ripped in 30 for 5-6 days. I'm on Day 5 L2 with 30DS and will start level 3 on Ripped next week. Because your endurance gets better as you progress with these, I felt like the levels got easier. Those that are doing it, stick with it! I am hoping I can see some results soon. I need to lose just a couple inches by my sister's wedding beginning of May. Not really watching what I eat, just trying not to eat so much and make a few healthy changes. I'm a mother of a 2 year old so my time to exercise is limited, which is why I love Jillian's DVD's the most.

I just finished the 30 Day Shred and I wanted to let you know that I did it religiously every day and as for my eating habits- I didnt change them much, i wrote down what I ate and I thought i was trying to watch what I ate and smaller portions and such. I think I was overeating sometimes bc I only lost 2 pounds on it( I didnt count calories). BUT i did gain muscle mass for sure and I felt more toned and I lost in the last 2 weeks 4 inches on my tummy! What the scale says doesnt always mean your not doing well! Hope this helps!!!

I had done this DVD few month ago (first time and never finished it due to some reason) and when I did it on day 1 L 1 I was sore for almost 5 days. I could not even get up from bed for 2 days. It was my first time doing any strength exercise though. Now I had start back again. I was surprised when I could do the jumping jacks at the beginning but when I did jumping jacks and jump rope back to back then I sure had to hold my breath.

I am definitely going to finish my 30 days this time (no more using family problems as an excuse). I saw that everyone is talking about L 2 so will see how hard it is when I reach there.

NIKKIBEALER has given us really good review about this DVD that it do work. Let's get in to shape together..

Hi All, I just joined Spark People so I could chat with others about 30 Day Shred & learn more about peoples' experience/results with it. Most of the posts on here are from folks just starting. How has has it been for those of you who stuck with it?
Yesterday was day 2 of level 1. I have a lot of weight to lose & I'm really really sore!
How many times a week is everyone working out w/ 30 Day Shred. Is anyone alternating it with other workouts? Good luck everyone!

Good Morning everyone I finished day four of level 1 of the the 30 day shred!
My legs are soar it's hard for me to walk down the stairs lol!
I am going to complete 10 days then I will move on to level 11.
