I have the Body Revolution and its awesome! Some people dont like Jillian, but I think shes great! Its all a matter of opinion. But I have the Body Revolution and the INSANITY and the body revolution starts at a more beginner place. The INSANITY is AMAZING, but it is just that...INSANE! Definately not for someone whose not a pretty fit strong person already.

If you can, get it--it is a FANTASTIC program and very effective! My co-workers borrowed my copy, but when they are done just may do the program again!

You could also check your tv provider and see if there are any exercise channels. Also, you can try YouTube. They have tons of videos free as well. Maybe you can find some of the Jillian Michaels videos and try them before you buy. Good luck!!

If it's amazing, it won't be easy. If it's easy it won't be amazing. If it's worth it you won't give up. If you give up you're not worth it.

I say give the videos a try. Working out inside during winter, just works better for me. You can check out YOUTUBE for different workouts, or to preview cd's before buying them. And don't forget the videos available here on Spark! Good luck!

Jillian is good, but tough! I've done her 30 Day Shred and enjoy it. Basically, find something that you will enjoy and go for that. I really like the 10 minute Solutions Series and have several of those DVDs, as well as several of the Biggest Loser ones and some Crunch Fitness ones (I also have the 28 Day Bootcamp from Sparkpeople as well). The main thing is to find something you will stick with and not get bored.

I'm not a fan of Jillian Michaels but I love turbo jam. I got my videos pretty cheap on ebay and there are may to chose from so I don't get bored. I still go to the gym but try to use these as extras in my day or when there is a day that I can't make it to the gym at all. Good luck

Hi Cat,
No, there isn't. We live in a really small town that's about 1/2 hr from the city. No gyms here. I'm a stay at home mom, too, so I make a special trip to go to the gym, when I do. I can't just stop by after work.

Is there another gym that is closer to your home, or on your way to/from work? One of the things I made sure to look at when choosing a gym was proximity to home/work. Granted, not everyone is as lucky as I was (3 gyms within 20 minute walking distance of my home), but that's something to think about.

Best of luck!

I currently go to the gym to work out, but I live 30 mins away, and here in Canada, that kind of commute can be terrible in the winter, so I am wrestling with whether to renew my membership at the end of this month, or not. I saw Jillian Michaels Body Revolution, and wondered if THAT would be worth it? I am not the biggest fan of working out in my house, but at the same time, going to the gym, this winter, means 30 min drive on yucky roads, and the cost of the vids is cheaper than gas and gym membership. I'm really torn here. ANYONE try her vids?
