I am on Level 3 Day 3. Be sure to take your measurements!!! I have only lost 2 pounds but I am down 10 inches (all over) in 2 levels!!! I lost exactly 5 inches per level. My stomach has flattened dramatically. When I get bored, I turn the sound down and put Biggest Loser on the laptop next to the TV lol

Ok, I finished 30 Day Shred today, and I'm going to stand by my opinion that I think it's a good one and one I will go back to (after finishing Ripped in 30). It got no easier, still made me sweat and groan and still made me feel pretty good about myself when all was done. I'll post measurements when I take them, if anyone is interested. Thanks for listening!

I'm on day five of level three and I have to admit that I really love this DVD. Yes, love it. I know I'm not shredded but I am SO much stronger and there are so many areas where I could be even better that I can see myself using this one far into the future. Still have five days to go, of course, but unless I knock my head completely off (unlikely), I will stand by this review.

I'm doing this again! I love that it's so short and crazy! I literally need maybe a 45 minute window to do this in a day (workout then shower) and I'm a student and a teacher so I have no time for gyms or anything yet. Anything longer than 30 minutes and I don't have time, anything less and it's a waste of time. After Doing this workout enough times, I find all I really need to do is listen to it on headphones and I can watch TV or anything else and complete the work out quite efficiently without becoming bored. :)

All those people who tell you that you can't do something are just trying to slow you down so they can have a head start on it

I really like it so far. I did Level 1 for 10 days without a break and am on day 4? 5? of Level 2 which seems to be much harder, but it is getting easier the more I do it. I've been doing her 6-week six pack DVD every other day or so as well, and I have to say that I am glad I did, because otherwise some of the plank moves on the Shred would have been horrifying. This way I am more resigned, since I have met them already.

I don't know how I'm doing as far as weight loss and I'm not going to check my measurements until I'm done but I do know that I feel stronger and have more endurance and my clothes are fitting better - those are good results for me, anyhow! Good luck, everybody!

I did day one yesterday as my resolution kick start. Definitely a good workout, I'm a little sore today. Due to my weird work schedule I'm shooting for at least every other day. If I can fit it in more I will but as long as I do every other I will be happy. I'm planning on measuring every week because I hear a lot of people say that they didn't lose any or much weight but lost inches due to all the muscle gaining.

SO! I am starting the 30 Day Shred again for like the.. 4th?.. maybe 5th? time now.

I'm modifying it a bit- I plan to do 7 days of each instead of 10, only because I am counting down until Christmas and when I started I only had 21 days to go until my vacation! Plus I have yet to make it past day 5 or 6 in the past, so it will be a good way to keep me in it.

I did measure, so here is to hoping it pays off!

Hearing success stories with this def makes me motivated to keep with it.

It is very normal! I just did my third day and I've done the workout before. Just push through it and your muscles will get used to it. I believe the first time I did it, it took like 4 or 5 days before I wasn't sore anymore. It works though!

I love the 30 day shred workouts! I don't follow the actually 30 day plan because I like to mix up my workout DVDs frequently - but they are great workouts and I recommend anyone to try it out :)

I did Day One on Level One with the modifications and I was sore! I mean like hard to sit down sore! It took a week for my muscles to recover. Is this normal? Should I push through it? I am not a beginner in exercise, but definitely not an expert. I guess it just scared me after I was so sore to even attempt another day. Any advice?

My husband and I did this video for 3 months (to get me back into shape after pregnancy). We did it 4 nights a week and after 3 months, I lost 25lbs and he had lost 35lbs! I LOVE this video. You have to stick with it and all of the sudden you really notice! I lost several inches as well and I actually now weigh less that before I got pregnant - and I gained 42 pounds during pregnancy! I am starting this again after 2 years off just to tone up again. You will not be dissapointed!

I just completed day 1 of level 1 and I was rather surprised! I work out regularly and figured this 20 minute workout would be a piece of cake... Not quite! The "no breaks" in between really gets the body temperature up and the calories burning! I have heard SO MANY positive things about this video, I can't wait to see my progress over the next couple weeks and overall the next 30 days! Great video, its definitely worth a go!

I love this DVD SO MUCH!!! My husband and I have been doing it for about 50 days now. We're both much more toned and endurance is WAY up.

Can't manage those crazy jump lunges though. I follow Anita on those and use weights for a little extra challenge.

I loved the 30DS video. I did it in the 30 days recommended. The first few days I was hurting pretty bad, but I pushed through it. I had great results at the end. I moved on to her Killer abs video, which is a but kicker. I will finish Level 3 of that one this week and plan to do the 30DS again. Her videos have done wonders for my endurance level. Just last night, I actually got on the treadmill and RAN. and last weekend I played tennis with my 3 teenagers and ran circles around them on the court. I wouldn't recommend that her video is the only thing someone does in a workout, but I definitely recommend the 30DS video.

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.

MENEZES1983 don't be discouraged! It takes time for changes to happen. In fact, it can take as much as 6 to 8 *weeks* for healthy lifestyle changes to show up on the scale!

Remember that exercise is critical for success, but the real magic happens in the kitchen. It's fantastic that you've cut soda, and that you're getting more fruits and veggies, but unless you eat less than you're burning, it's unlikely you're going to see a big difference. It may be time for you to start tracking your food! Give it some time, and understand that it took you time to lose the weight, and it will take time to take the weight off.

You would also be surprised at how little you notice the changes in your own body. You see the incremental changes every day, and 1-2 inches is nearly nothing, so without before and after measurements, it may be hard for you to see. Take the measurements now, and take a before picture. You'll be glad you did!

Today was day 8 of 30 day Shred with one rest day, and I haven't seen any results yet. I'm not feeling that optimistic, but I will keep up with it until I finish it.

I noticed today I'm not having that much of a hard time with the strength exercises anymore, it's the cardio that I can't keep up with. I have stress fractures in my legs, so the jump rope is hard. I've been jogging in place instead of the jump rope.

I didn't measure my self at the beginning, so I can't keep track of it. But, I'm assuming if loose 1-2 inches of my thighs I should be able to notice.

Hi everyone! I started 30 day shred 3 days ago and it's kicking my butt!!
I'm very overweight and finally decided to do something about it.
I gained most of my weight after having my second child.

I'm determined to finish this, and I'm looking for some motivation!
I'm not really watching what I'm eating as much, because I'm also doing Zumba.
I did cutoff all soda from my diet, and I'm now eating every few hours, with more
Fruit and veggies.

I really hope I can stick to it and see some results,
My wish is to look decent in a bathing suit by end of July!

I just started level 3 and it kicks my butt! But what an awesome way to start the day- and to see that I can do things I never knew I could do! It's SO worth the cost of the DVD, and you can do it over again if you need a little boost.

Today's excuses are tomorrow's regrets dressed in disguise.

If you eat crap, you feel like crap and that makes you want more crap.

I really enjoy the video!!!! I have done it before in the past-you get in shape and I ended up losing two dress sizes. I eat a paleo diet and this workout just melts away anything extra that's shakin. Totally worth the $8. If you drink lots of water you find it a bit easier as well.

All those people who tell you that you can't do something are just trying to slow you down so they can have a head start on it

I like the shred. I think it's a good foundation to build up to her harder videos (Ripped in 30, Banish Fat Boost Metabolism). My calorie burn per workout is as follows: 1 - 110, 2 - 150, 3 - 120. It's a decent workout for 20 minutes, and a good workout if you want something harder and decide to do all 3 back to back. If you do that, just make sure you do workout 3 first.

Possibly because I am older it is harder on my legs. I use the 28 day boot camp DVD with Coach Nicole which has modifiers for people like me. It is great!!! I am still in week 1 of the boot camp.

Love, love, love the Shred. It makes sweat and I definitely feel the burn - even on level 1! It's short enough to squeeze in on a busy day and it doesn't leave you extremely tired that you can't do other exercises.

When I don't feel like listening to Jillian-isms, I put it on mute and crank up my workout playlist!

Go for the Shred!

I loved it at first, was really excited to get to level 2. But then I got so frigging bored of hearing jillian say the same things every time. I can't handle all that predictability. If you dont mind that sort of thing, it's a really nice workout for a short period of time.

I love interval training and when I bought this about 3 years ago it really got me toned fast and I've never left level one. However, now I find it's really hard on my lower legs. I don't know if it's just age getting to me or if I need to invest in better shoes. My floors are hardwoods. Has anyone else had an issue with this? I'd love to find another interval training DVD that lasts about 30 minutes.

I love the 30 day shred. I recommend it to everyone! It was the first dvd that I ever tried. I did it every for 30 days as you're supposed to. I lost a total of 10 pounds and a tonnnnn of inches.

It's gret for mnay reasons. One, it's easy to fit into your days since it's under 30 minutes. Two, it takes you through strength, cardio and ab training. Three, it gets you used to being active daily! I'm now conditioned to workout at least 30 minutes very day.

Do it! It's worth it!

I have the 1st level of the shred on my cable box and I completed that level for 30 days. Didn't see much weight loss, is that because I didn't move on to the next levels?

I loved doing the 30 day shred. Although I didn't see any significant weight loss, my body really tightened up and I got stronger with more stamina. It was a great way to strengthen up for her tougher DVDs.

live, laugh, love. simple but so true.

I really love it. A friend and I did it over lunch hour last summer for almost a month and although we weren't terribly fresh at the end, it was challenging! With the three levels you get three workouts for the price of one! Plus for $8 you can't go wrong.

I have spent $8 on things MUCH WORSE for me!

Thanks for the post. I have her beginning pilates and almost bought her 30 day shred the other day. Now I will sneak it in the cart when my hubby isn't looking. LOL!

buy it.


it's a great workout for just 25 minutes, which would take a lot longer at the gym to get the same results. I am still on level 1, but seriously kicks my butt everytime. I can already see the difference in my arms.

30 Day Shred has been a great investment for me. It has a great replay value for the $8 or so I spent on it (I got it in a set with three other JM DVDs).

I started using it in August and even now (after having done all levels and doing other dvds that I find more challenging) it's still good. Just last night I did all three levels back to back (with 8 lb weights) and it had me sweating and panting. Because I hadn't done it for a while I found it was challenging to keep up with the rigorous pace.

love it - and I agree with the previous posters, after a couple days at level 3 I went back to 2 and was challenging all over again!

I am intending on buying this as well after my 28 days shred on SP. I have found some reviews on Amazon.com, you can have a peek there as well.

I really like this DVD. I have been using it regularly since late October. I haven't kept track of how many days I've spent on each level because I find all three levels useful. After repeating level 3 for a few days, going back to level 2 feels more challenging because you use some different muscles. I've never used it everyday, but incorporate it into my week for strength training/toning. For me, 20 minutes is perfect for a morning-before-work workout and, on the weekends, doing two levels in row is still just a manageable 40 minutes. That's the biggest merit, in my opinion. Lately, I have only been using it once or twice a week. I tend to use it more often on rainy days when I can't exercise outside. I feel like I will always be able to go back to this DVD to get a quick but decent workout.

Love it! Today was day 9 level 3. Tomorrow is my last day! I've seen great results in terms of toning and how my clothes fit. Will be taking actual measurements tomorrow.

I really like it- but I found that I have to rotate it with other workouts. The shred seemed hard on my knees. It definately does get results, so when I'm short on time, its what I choose!

I am on day 15 (n Level 2) and love it. I haven't weighed myself but can see differences in my body/clothes and definitely in my endurance. My arms immediately toned (within 3 or 4 days of Level 1) but I am thinking it will take extra cardio to get my stomach tighter. I am also doing bikram yoga 3 times a week and running on occasion! Good luck!

You will be SOAR if you do it everyday as it is intended, but it will be better by day 4-5 so just stick with it. emoticon

Did it everyday for 30 days. I spent 10 days on each level. Loved it! Now I do her No More Trouble Zones twice a week.

I have just completed day 22 of the shred, I am doing it everyday for the 30 days. It goes against everything i know about letting my muscles rest, but its been amazing for me endurance wise.
I am just in love with all things Jillian now, I have joined the team pp mentioned.

Also, I find you get a good cardio work out in the 20 min tbh, not just strength. I prefer weights and strength training, so without this kind of dvd me on my own at the gym would not do that much cardio, lol.
I say give it a go for a few days (resting or not, your choice) and see what you think.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

It depends on what you're looking for in a workout. It's a good 30 minute work out if you're focusing on strength, not cardio. I wouldn't do it every day like it's expected to, however...your muscles have no time to recover. I've also found that yoga is imperative to keeping my muscles from tightening up when using it, especially my lower back.

There's actually an entire team related to Jillian Michael's DVDs...you might want to check it out :).
