I did the 30 Day Shred workout program in June, 2011, and found it to be a great way to start each day (I have a review of the 30 Day Shred on its page). I kept using it until I finally received "Ripped in 30" at my door in August.

There are definitely a lot of similarities between the two programs: they both use the 3-2-1 system - 3 circuits of 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs, with a 2 minute warm up and cool down. There are beginner versions of some of the tougher exercises.

What's different? Well, the videos are longer on average, so if you're working out in a limited space of time, you may want to allow about 33-38 minutes for each video. Also, there are 4 different workouts instead of 3 in the 30 Day Shred.

The exercises do not repeat at all over the 4 workouts, and I believe that weeks 3 & 4 are a bit more advanced than the 30 Day Shred. There are a lot more exercises in this program that develop balance and coordination. Jillian pulls from her experience in martial arts to bring some rather intense moves.

Jillian incorporates a lot more motivational talk and constantly reminds us that it's more than just about exercise, but about bringing our A game and stepping up every day of our lives.

The main complaint I had about the 30 day shred was the several minutes of messages that you have to wait for when loading the DVD. Thankfully, in "Ripped in 30", you can now skip or fast forward through the messages to get to the workouts quickly.

Overall, I believe this is a good program for intermediate to advanced training. If you're a beginner, you could stay on week 1 and 2 videos much longer to build up your strength, stamina, balance and coordination. I consider myself intermediate level, and still have trouble doing the advanced version of many of the moves. This program will definitely challenge you.

I have been doing this DVD for a week and love it! I find the music and instruction a lot better than the shred. For instance in this video Jillian specifically states that the workout should be done 5-6 times a week, the body needs a rest day! Also included on the DVD is a web address for a free 30 day meal plan and the meals are really simple including things that you can get on the go like subway. The workouts take about 34minutes to complete following the warm up and cool down so it is slightly longer than the shred and slightly more intensive. The 3-2-1 system of strength, cardio, and abs keeps me motivated to move on. Another slight change from the Shred is that the strength moves are cut down to 30 seconds each (3 exercises repeated twice) as opposed to 2 exercises one at 60sec and the other 30 sec then repeated, which seems a bit of a break, allowing me to keep up the intensity! In Level one I usually burn 400cal, pretty good for the time I put in!

The best workout ever. Ships to Canada in less than a week.Four workouts, and 5 to 8 pounds lost per week. That is 20-30 pounds in a mount. You do not need fancy equipment, just the motivation to workout 5 to 7 days a week.
I love this.

i've been using this dvd almost everyday for 4 months now on week 4. It is a tough workout and it definitely took me longer than 4 weeks to get to level 4 of the dvd but it's such a good workout and for people like me who don't like to spend a whole lot of time in the gym, this gets the job done quickly and effectively. I love this dvd and I don't think I'll ever stop using it. I'm in the greatest shape of my life and this workout is a large part of the reason why. Bravo!!!

I really liked this DVD. I am only 2 weeks in but I can feel it working and Jillian really gets you to SWEAT!!
My only complaint is with the meal plan, I understand being on the go but I wish that there would be something offered in the place of say, muffins or Subway. I think that going clean is the best way to do it. It will also offer you the best benefits.

Love this DVD. My absolute favorite, and I own a lot - many from the firm line, Jackie Warner etc. Jillian has the right tempo, new moves, and lots of attitude. My favorite workout is week three. Buy it and enjoy - strenght, cardio and abs.

There were times during the workouts I would yell "you're a bitch, Jillian!" but only because she works us with this video! And does it ever work! I've lost 10.2 lbs in 4 weeks. Of course you must watch your calorie intake, and I also add resistance training as part of my weekly schedule. But this dvd was a fresh change from a stationary bike or a treadmill. I've even got my husband starting on week 1. Once I'm through it all, I plan to redo it but aim to follow the more advanced girl. I am a certified fitness trainer myself and find her exercises well done and safe. You'll definitely sweat with this dvd!

This DVD of Jillian's is the best I've seen so far. It's actually fun to do and you get a super workout. The meal plan that accompanies the workout program is easily accessible on her website.
