Are Jillian Michaels DVDs Worth Buying?

Perhaps one of the reasons that we look to Jillian Michaels as a role model is that she once struggled with her weight. She was an overweight teenager and we can see on The Biggest Loser that she has a lot of empathy with the contestants.

Jillian decided to fight back against her own weight issues, took up martial arts and became a black belt! So we can see that that strength and determination that we admire in Jillian was there from an early age. Now she has a mission to help others in their own weight struggles. Fortunately we don't all have to be a contestant on The Biggest Loser to get Jillian Michaels to help us. She has produced a number of excellent dvds and videos so that we can follow her program at home. Let's have a look at how you can have Jillian help you at home.

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD

Jillian Michaels takes you on a 30 day fitness program to really make a change to your weight and fitness. One of the great things about this DVD is that the workouts are only 20 minutes long - so there really isn't any excuse not to be able to fit this into your day.  The moves are challenging but easy to follow. There isn't anything complicated here. It doesn't have to be. If you stick with it it just works.

Jillian's  workouts on this DVD use the  the 3-2-1 method. This is 3 mins strength, 2 mins cardio, 1 min abs.  There are 3 levels to the 30 Day Shred DVD and you progress through them as you feel able.

The workouts on this DVD are pretty challenging and if you stick to this regime you are going to see results. Jillian Michaels has aimed this DVD at everyone though. As we sit on our couch and watch The Biggest Loser we can all marvel at the workouts those contestants are doing. But Jillian's point is that everyone can do this.

So whilst you may have to go through the pain barrier on this workout then you do know that it is doing you a lot of good. Jillian is very motivating - if anyone can help you she can! Is it going to hurt? Yes but as Jillian says "If you want change, it's not coming for free". 

Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones DVD

This JIllian Michale's DVD is a 42 minute workout which is split into 6 seven minute sessions which each target specific parts of the body. Those trouble zones! Namely Shoulder and Legs, Chest and Abs,Biceps and Butt,Core,Upper Body and Core,Lower Body and Core. So the great thing is that you can either do the whole workout at once or pick and choose from the different parts.

Again with this DVD Jillian Michaels motivating presence is what keeps you going to the end of this workout. I know that she isn't exactly standing there looking over your shoulder but sometimes it feels like it is. She makes you want to do this for yourself. And the exercises although they seem simple and are easy to follow and certainly challenging and you will see results if you stick with it.  Just when you think you aren't going to make it Jillian steps in to help. And you always look forward to the yoga cool down at the end of the DVD.

Jillian Michaels Banish Fat Boost Metabolism DVD

This is the latest Jillian Michaels DVD. It has a 40 minute workout with easy to follow instructions by JIllian. You don' need any equipment for this one - just a desire to improve your fitness level. I moved onto this one from having the 30 Day Shred as I liked that one so much. This is different but still as challenging and effective. 

You get a great sense of progression with this exercise DVD. As will all of Jillian Michael's workouts you feel as though you really are never going to be able to do this - but somehow she convinces you that you can. And before you know it you actually can. How do you think those contestants on The Biggest Loser do it? Because they have got Jillian and Bob fighting for them and motivating them to believe they can do it!

Jillian Michaels Wii

Jillian Micheals Fitness Ultimatum 2010

Jillian Michaels first released the first version of  Fitness Ultimatum for the Wii Fit in 2008 and this was rather surprisingly disappointing. For someone who always has great quality products this was unexpected and I am sure Jillian herself wanted to improve this Wii Fit Game. Well the good news is that the new hopefully much inrpoved version is due to be released in October.

The Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010 will be released on October 20th 2009 and is available for pre order now on Amazon. I really like the Wii Fit as it was the thing that really motivated me to start doing something about that exercise program I really knew I needed to start. So to have a great Wii Fitness Program by Jillian MIchaels is something I am looking forward to a lot! 

Fitness Ultimatum will be set on a Pacific Island and will have a boot camp type program with Jillian there to motivate you.  The first Fitness Ultimatum had a number of drawbacks which included disappointing graphics,that it was more of a game than an exercise program and that it just wasn't interactive. After reading a lot of reviews I decided not to buy this one. But I am sure that all these problems will have been ironed out in the 2010 and I already have it on pre order. Should be a great addition to the Jillian Michael's dvds.

Biggest Loser Family Cookbook

We all know that to be in great physical shape you need not just exercise but a good diet. But it is often a struggle to find healthy recipes that everyone in the family,particularly the children are going to want to eat. Having to prepare separate meals is just not the answer. This is where The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook is appealing. Great healthy meals that even the kids will like (well mostly)!

Look out for the Cajun Squash Fries, Healthy Pizza,Baked Ziti. It gives a lot of healthy versions of family favorites all for the budget consicous family.
