Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism is one of two new workouts from Jillian Michaels. This is a 55-minute bootcamp based, cardio workout and it is intense! Who knew using your own body weight could challenge you this much? The cardio segments include non-dancy, athletic moves like kickboxing, jacks and plyometric jumps. I have to admit I wasn't expecting much from this workout but I was pleasantly surprised with how well it worked my whole body.
Who is it for?
This workout is considered intermediate/advanced and I would agree with the rating. Although some of the moves could be modified, the workout never stops moving so you're going to be sweating a lot! It would definitely challenge even a seasoned exerciser.
What to expect:
The choreography in this workout is easy to follow. Since the workout is more bootcamp style there really isn't "choreography" to speak of, just basic moves kicked up a notch. There are 8 circuits each of which are done 2 times through. The second time through the circuit you're supposed to work as hard as you can for maximum results. Jillian is a no-nonsense instructor and I really enjoy her teaching style. This is a great addition to my cardio workout library.
