Jillian Michaels Body Shred Experience!!


Meeting Jillian Michaels and working out with her was such an amazing experience. I was so lucky to take a picture with her and receive a hug and a kiss on the cheek!! This is the work out she made us do. It took 30 minutes to complete all circuits with no breaks in between. She definitely kicked my bum!!! For the sake of performing each exercise more accurately, take 20 second of rest in between each circuit. I wore my calorie counter for the entire workout. I burned 430 calories during the 30 minutes of exercise. For the next 30 minutes after I completed the exercise I burned another 200 calories trying to recover my heart rate! If you are looking for a great workout to torch calories, this is the workout for you!!!
