Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones Review


This workout video offers an intense seven-segment circuit focusing on all-over fitness and weight loss, with a focus on the chest, legs, butt, abs, biceps, core, and more. Users say Michaels is tough but engaging and motivating, and the routines produce both weight loss and toning.

Regarded by many enthusiastic fans as a kick-butt trainer, Jillian Michaels has produced a series of cheap workout DVDs since making it big on "The Biggest Loser" TV show. According to Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones reviews, users like the relatively easy moves and minimal space and equipment requirements (incorporating three-pound dumbbells into the routines is optional). Variety, in the sense that you're always doing something different, is another big draw. Reviews posted on Diet Girl gratefully note you can also modify the workouts without losing the effect. For instance, if you can't do a chest fly with a double leg raise, you can just raise your legs; another alternative is to skip some circuits. And finally, Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones reviews on Amazon say Michaels seems a bit toned down in this DVD compared to her usual style and successfully motivates without being completely in your face.

This Jillian Miachaels workout DVD features seven six-minute segments that focus on interval training to sculpt and tone every area of the body, from shoulders to thighs. E ach segment involves two sets of five, 30-second exercises. For example, Circuit 2 emphasizes the chest and core and leads you through a chest press with crunch, chest fly with double leg raise, and push-ups. Circuit 3, stressing biceps and bum, works you with a dead-lift with hammer curl and side lunge with bicep curl. Some Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones reviews report the exercises are too taxing for beginners, but others say you can always make adjustments and gradually build up to working through the entire routine.

Once overweight herself, Michaels is known for her feisty but soft-hearted attitude. Her No More Trouble Zones showcases some fresh and varied exercises that leave little chance you'll get bored with this workout DVD.
