Get ripped!
PostedOctober 16, 2014
Big Jillian fan. I have all of her DVDs  and adding this one was the cherry on top. My abs weren't quite ripped until I stared this DVD. It's pretty amazing!  Jillian knows exactly what you need.   Excellent body blasting exercising, working everything, but mainly abs.

Great end to my day!
PostedMarch 3, 2014
I love this DVD for after a run!  Running alone does not help with flexibility, so this DVD is a great addition to my routine. It's also great for after weight training, to cool you down and make sure you properly tend to those muscles!  Great DVD!

Great stretch!
PostedMarch 3, 2014
Ana is great, I have a few of her DVDs and she is easy to follow. I love taking this DVD on vacation, after a plane ride good movement and stretching is a must!  I love hour long work-outs, they just make me feel better. My chiropractor recommended Pilates to me several years ago and this was the first DVD I bought. It's really help build core strength that my weight training just couldn't do.

Variety work-out.
PostedMarch 3, 2014
This DVD has it all.  If you have read my other reviews, you know I love Jillian. She brings it in this DVD!  I love that there are 2 work outs. Do them separate or as I always do, the whole thing!  It's a little over an hour. Grab your weights and a mat. She does it all!  In Jillian's classic style she pumps you up with her pep talks and keeps you going. Boxing, kick-boxing, yoga, jujitsu and more.

Options!
PostedMarch 3, 2014
This DVD is great. You can customize your work-out. There is a menu where you can pick and choose  up to 9  work-outs.   There is really something for everyone and I love how they've mixed Yoga and Pilates. You can also play the whole DVD start to finish if you like. It's great!

Killer!
PostedMarch 3, 2014
Let me start by saying I am a fitness buff, and this DVD was a killer!  Fantastic work out!  I was sore the next day!  Ms. Smith will kick your booty and keep going!  I love it!  I went through 3 sets of weights, 5, 8 and 10.   I started with the whole 60 min and it was non-stop. Get ready for the burn, you'll feel great!

Hits every area!
PostedMarch 3, 2014
This DVD is one of my top 3 favorites!  It's hits all areas and you do every type of workout. Pilates, Yoga, jump training, cardio, weights and balance. I'm 5'4" 115 lbs and a set if 10 lbs weights are perfect for this work out. She doesn't use a mat in the work out, but you'll need one. Tanja is always awesome!

Amazing Workout!
PostedMarch 3, 2014
Jillian is amazing, what can I say!  This Yoga DVD is challenging and totally kick butt cool!  You sweat, you burn, your heat rate is up and it's all in Classic Jillian style. I thought 5 lbs weights were for baby girls until I had to used them for the 2nd work out.   Love this DVD!

Excellent work out!
PostedFebruary 27, 2014
I love Tanja, I have all of her DVD's and I can not wait for more! This work out is awesome and so much fun. I really feel great about my work out when I'm done. I like to use 10 lbs weights in each hand with this DVD and it's a challenge, love it! I work out 6-7 days a week and I work this one in once a week.

Gwen is awesome and fun to do yoga with. The moves are some that I've never done before, and they are great! Love that the DVD is an hour long, but you can also break it up into 20 min sessions. Love it!

Order of exercises

I just got the DVD cardio burn sculpt and I looked over all of it. I saw a bonus feature on core areas. If I have not done cardio much but I am in good shape with bpowfl;ex machine should I just start for a month with core bonus and then the express workout then to workout or which order?

I always say jump right into it. If you do start with the shorter version only do it once or twice. You don't need a month. Your body is amazing, you'll feel great!

How many calories do you burn with this workout?

I use Gaiam's Wake Up Workout on hulu plus and my favorite is Cardio Burn Sculpt with Tanja, the first episode. I'm trying to keep track of my calories so I wanted to know how many calories do you burn with the first episode of this workout?

Everyone is different based on your size and weight. Try using an app like Fitness Pal. I'm 5'4" 115 lbs and I burn about  370 calories doing 55 min of circuit training.

No it's not. Try Yoga Melt Down first. It's also by Jillian.

Does the 8 mm in Uttama premium mat sacrifice balance?

Concerned about the sinking in, but due to arthritis I need extra cushioning ... Please any feedback is appreciated
Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
Not at all.  You really do not sink in this mat.  It's the best mat I've ever had.  It's really perfect!  I'm 5'4" and weigh 114 lbs, I do not sink in the mat at all.

Does this rubber mat have an odor to it?

I am chemically sensitive and purchased a mat that I could not use because of the odor.

Smells bother me as well.  This mat smells like rubber but the longer you have it in your home the better it gets.  It's really not that bad.  I practice Pilates and Yoga at home so that I do not have to smell perfume on people in a class, so I know what you mean.

Do you have a yoga sling for the 8mm thick mat?

I would like to order a yoga sling that fits the 8mm thick mat.

Do you have one?
Top 10 Contributor

You will need to get a sling that has adjustable straps.  Mine fits in a regular yoga mat bag, however it will not close all of the way.

how much does the mat weigh?

I would like to know the weight of this mat (and all your other mats for that matter). Thanks.

This mat probably weighs about 4-5 lbs.  It's very thick.  I keep it in a standard yoga mat bag however the bag will not close.  When I travel on a plane I take a 3mm yoga mat.
