Jillian Michaels Hard Body

“Was that a sigh of agony?” You know you’re doing a Jillian Michaels workout when you hear that question. If easy is what you’re looking for then this dvd isn’t the right one for you. But if you’re looking to change up your workout or progress to the next level, these two 45 minute workouts could be what you are looking for.

Title: Jillian Michaels Hard Body


Level: Advanced

Equipment Needed: Dumbbells

Instructor: Jillian Michaels

What: Two 45-minute interval aero/tone workouts that includes six circuits which you do twice. The workouts progress in difficulty but there are modifications if needed. The cardio is mostly high impact and the toning is tough. Jillian’s encouraging, engaging and motivating.

Release Date: 2012

Why I enjoyed this workout: I love that Jillian doesn’t sugarcoat what needs to be done to get into shape. I really enjoy a 45-minute workout, I feel like I’ve done enough to get a good workout but I didn’t have to spend hours doing the workout. I like working several muscle groups at once, it’s a nice change from my other workouts. I liked the variety and challenge of the exercises. What I’m not sure about is how I feel about the DJ, but then again he wasn’t a distraction from the workout. And just as I feel I’m about to die, that there’s nothing left of me to give, I look up at the television and she Jillian smiling and reminding me that I can finish the workout. Priceless.

Grab your dumbbells and be prepared to sweat.

  1. I haven’t even heard of this one…much less tried it. I’m going to look into doing this one!

    1. Carli, It was a good workout but it’s one I’m holding off until the temps & humidity are lower. It kicks butt. πŸ™‚

  2. I think I should use a Jillian DVD to get me motivated, I’m a major exercise procrastinator. She seems like she could light a fire under me and get me moving!

    1. She can definitely light a fire under anybody. πŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting!

  3. This looks good, I’m sure I’d enjoy it as well. I agree with you on 45 minutes being the sweet spot on some days. It’s just enough!

    1. I really enjoyed the workout and it definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone.

  4. Look great but not sure if I can follow along. Look strenuous for super beginner like me. πŸ™‚ But I’d like to give it a try though.


    1. Hi, Honeybey. The workout is very challenging and even with the modifications it may be too challenging for a beginner. But, it’s a great workout to have a goal to do. Thanks for stopping by!
