I'm torn between Charlotte Crosby's Davinas and Jillian Michaels and not sure which to get has anyone any recomendations . I need some advice please smile

Jillian for me, you can you tube it to try it first though. Have got some definate results, it's a short but extensive work out.

glenthebattleostrich Sun 04-Jan-15 21:25:24

Jillian definitely!

I can drop a dress size on shred. Starting metabolism boost tomorrow morning

mummyneedinganswers Sun 04-Jan-15 21:28:05

See I'm starting slimming world n wanting a gd exercise regime to go with it xx

T25 - I have abs now, actual abs! And it's only 25 minutes a day.

glenthebattleostrich Sun 04-Jan-15 21:30:35

I've seen the add for T25 and it scares me!

I do Jillian sometimes (will do Ripped in 30 or Six Week Six Pack for example) but only for the duration of that programme and then I always, always go back to Davina. Jillian's great but I like Davina. Ideally, I do both as Jillian is too cardio lite and I know if I do Jillian and Davina back to back, I'm burning enough calories/sweating enough.

Try them out on You Tube and see what you think. It might depend on which you find least annoying tbh. grin

I'm doing Body Revolution atm and am going to do T25 next!

Howaboutthisone Sun 04-Jan-15 21:34:46

A big vote for davina here! Some are better than others but all are good!

26Point2Miles Sun 04-Jan-15 21:36:21

Davinas new 7 min one is pretty good

Nobody tried charlottes?

mummyneedinganswers Sun 04-Jan-15 21:45:50

Is that all one DVD showy or different ones and which one of davinas would you reccomend I'm going to get Jillian's and davinas xx

Jillian s collection with shred, metabolism boost, no more trouble zones and 6 week 6 pack is £8.99 on Amazon today, its the deal of the day. I have 2 of them but still tempted

FluffyRedSocks Mon 05-Jan-15 07:48:08

The Jillian thing on Amazon, is that 'the 30 day shred' that everyone always says about?
I'm temped.. Could you link me the offer? I'm inept at Amazon!!

TCforTopCat Mon 05-Jan-15 08:12:35

Glen, thank you for the Amazon tip.
Already got one of them but that is too big a bargain to miss grin

TwinderelmoBeth Mon 05-Jan-15 12:28:29

Vicky from Geordie Shore one was really good. Bet it's in the bargain bin now too so even cheaper!

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Mon 05-Jan-15 12:30:44

The hab-it DVD, helps stop your insides falling out

judydoes Mon 05-Jan-15 12:30:49

Davinia's Power of Three worked wonders on me.

Showy Mon 05-Jan-15 16:02:23

I have all of Davina's except the most recent 7 minute one. The more recent ones are better as she is fitter/stronger and they are more challenging.

Body Revolution is Jillian's but if you go with her, as a beginner, I'd do 30 Day Shred or Six Week Six Pack. Manageable and effective.

Joey8 Tue 06-Jan-15 16:57:16

I have to go with Davina too! I still have a really old one of hers and it still does the trick! Do it every evening and you will definitely see a change, it's what helped me shred the stones smile

Curious to try another one though!

Have just ordered a davina dvd after reading this thread, fit in 15 (£4.50). www.amazon.co.uk/Davina-Fit-15-DVD-McCall/dp/B00F37VHRA/ref=pd_cp_d_h__0

My favourite Jillian dvd is the shred one as I don't like long work outs.

Showy do I have this right - you follow up a jillian dvd with a davina one in the same workout session. How is that possible shock

Personally I really like the Fitness Blender workouts on youtube. They are much more cardio focussed, all different durations (so you can pick the most convenient) and they are FREEEEEE.

And it gives you a calories burn...chart (?) on one side of the screen as you go along.

They are brilliant.

Saranmolly Fri 09-Jan-15 10:40:54

I wouldn't go with any of the "faddy" xmas DVD's! I would personally go with Jillian Michaels, Davina or Shaun T (Insanity etc)

yumyumpoppycat Fri 09-Jan-15 10:57:49

Saranmolly have you done insanity? Dp has convinced me to go with shaun t25 as he thinks the outlay will ensure I don't give up. Bit nervous as pack is supposed to arrive today.

kaykayred Fri 09-Jan-15 11:09:10

yumy I have Insanity. To be 100% honest, it is not something I would recommend to beginners, but it's brilliant to work up to.

Even when I could run an hour straight on the treadmill with lots of sprints, I would still end up collapsing in a sweaty heap before the end of an insanity workout!!

Jesus, the people they have in the background doing the workout clearly struggle and have to take breaks, and they are spinning instructors, marathon runners, etc.

My personal view is that it is too hard, and too daunting for a beginner. If you struggle at all with level 2 of the 30 day shred, then don't go near Insanity with a barge pole.

HOWEVER, that said, there are lots of people who do start with insanity, but just have to take it really slowly to begin with. Slowly, lots of breaks, push yourself, but not so hard that you start feeling ill.

This is all about the insanity workouts though, which are 40 minutes long, progressing to 60 minutes. I haven't tried the T25. My understanding is that they try and cram in a workout into a shorter time frame, so will probably do lots of very high intensity interval stuff, or moves which burn a shit ton of calories, like vertical jumps and tuck jumps. And everyone's favourite - burpees.

Saranmolly Fri 09-Jan-15 13:02:18

yumyumpoppycat yes I have. smile
T25 is great, you will be nervous but once you start it becomes addictive. Shaun T will make sure you don't give up... it's fun! Enjoy!

kaykayred my friend who had only ever swam before has just completed her first insanity round and loved it. She found days hard BUT it's so motivational she carried on. She is now doing T25 plus other extra exercise per day so I don't think it's impossible smile
