Over the years, women have sought to improve their appearance, resorting to complex makeup techniques, costly procedures to remove unwanted hair on the body, using a variety of cosmetics (including self-made products), and even plastic surgery. But in the first place in the impressive list of victims in the name of beauty has always been and will be a struggle with obesity. In some cases, for weight loss, it is enough to start eating properly, however, losing extra pounds with only one change in diet can take a whole year or even several years. Especially for those who want to put the body in order for the bathing season, the New Year, a significant event or just like that (but without wasting time by carefully selecting the allowed food), the well-known fitness trainer offers a unique program “Lose Weight in 30 Days ". Gillian Michaels knows from experience how to achieve amazing results in just a month.

Gillian Michaels was born in 1974 in Los Angeles, California, USA. As a teenager, the future celebrity suffered for a long time from the mockery of classmates who liked to tease their peers with a height of 159 cm and a weight of 80 kg. Growing up, Gillian realized that she could no longer ignore the problem of excess weight, and began to play sports. Necessity gradually grew into a hobby, and hobby turned into a profession. Having compiled her most popular program “Lose Weight in 30 Days”, Gillian Michaels gained fame for the whole world.

The essence of training

Those who regularly engage in fitness, know that any physical activity in the gym can be divided into two types: cardio and strength exercises. The first, respectively, are aimed at improving the work of the cardiovascular system, the development of endurance and bringing the body into a tone. Strength training, in turn, contribute to the development of muscle tissue and allows you to give the body the desired shape. It is impossible to gain a taut abdomen and elastic buttocks without adequate power load. However, cardiovascular exercises should be given at least a minimum time, since they represent an excellent workout before exercising with dumbbells or exercise machines.

Such an alternation of power and aerobic loads allows you to quickly achieve the desired goal - to lose weight and tighten muscles in all problem areas.

The program “Lose Weight in 30 Days” consists of three levels. Each level is designed for ten days to repeat the same workout, that is, three sets of HIIT. Despite the fact that you can hear a lot of negative feedback and far from flattering comments about the effectiveness of the program in question, most girls and women tend to rate the thirty-day course of Michaels.


The advantages of the method are obvious: here and a minimum of time for training (about 25 minutes), and a variety of exercises, and working out the key muscles that contribute to the achievement of harmony and fit the whole body. In the “Lose a Thirty Days” video course, Gillian Michaels demonstrates not doing the exercises correctly alone. As in other programs, she is assisted by two girls of athletic build: one shows how to simplify the proposed movements, and the other, on the contrary, offers to increase the initial load.

This feature is another advantage of the Gillian system: beginners who do not have sufficient physical training have the opportunity to follow a simplified version, and “seasoned” fitness lovers can both repeat for Michaels and complicate the workout. The load, by the way, can be modified with the help of a change of dumbbells: the heavier the projectiles, the more force will have to be applied to complete the exercise.


And, of course, you need to take into account that the achieved result (whatever it is) will not be saved if you abruptly stop doing the exercises for losing weight and do not try to change your nutrition system at least a little. Muscles weaken without regular work, and those extra calories are inexorably deposited in new kilograms. Try to maintain physical fitness and overall tone.

Positive reviews

As for the program “Lose Weight in 30 Days”, it is better to view the reviews in the most optimal format - that is, in the form of images. The impressive achievements of women who have undergone the analyzed workout are noticeable on any collage of the “before” and “after” type. Note: not all participants of the course have reduced numbers on the scales, however, nevertheless, their sides, abdomen, hips and hands are tightened. The secret of success is simple: body fat weighs very little, and muscle - a lot. Accordingly, regularly loaded muscles acquire a significant mass, and the burning of fat on their background becomes imperceptible. This is not a minus, but simply an objective feature of all power sports. Do not worry: even with the seemingly unflattering figures on the scales, you will find the perfect figure, if, of course, do not be lazy to make an effort.

The good news is that strong muscles burn calories by their very existence. To maintain muscle tissue in excellent condition, the body spends a certain amount of excess energy. Of course, this calorie expenditure is not enough to drop the last extra kilos: you can get the cherished forms only by regularly performing exercises for losing weight.

One of the most motivating reviews about Gillian Michaels programs sounds like this: take two courses in a row - and you will decrease by two sizes of clothes. Imagine: you can throw away the disgustingly wide sweaters of the 50th size and finally try on the miniskirt of the 46th. Fulfilling this desire is worth any effort. Especially since the efforts are rewarded not only with real weight loss, but also with the general recovery of the whole organism.

Negative reviews

Unfortunately, not all girls are satisfied with the video course. The beginning of the program “Lose Weight in 30 Days” - Level 1 - only those who have a sufficiently strong motivation and a powerful desire to achieve the goal pass. Some drop out on the second or third day, and the reasons sound about the same. After training, someone has an unbearably painful body, someone has sprained an ankle or knee joint while jumping, and someone has regular back pain.

It should be noted, however, that all negative comments come either from newcomers to fitness, who neglected the acquisition of basic physical training before classes with Gillian, or from those who performed the proposed exercises incorrectly. Of course, Michaels pays special attention to the fitness technique and demonstrates by example how to squat, push up, do lunges with dumbbells, so as not to damage either your knees, your ankles, or your back.

Neutral reviews

There are also neutral (it is not possible to say that it is absolutely objective) reviews on the analyzed program by Gillian Michaels. Hips, waist, back, chest, arms are the key areas that HIIT focuses on. However, some women refuse certain exercises in favor of others, emphasizing the development of muscles in the most problematic areas. So, some participants of the program replace the exercises in training, others ignore the proposed algorithm of physical activity and for a long time they are engaged at the same level (most often the second). Improvisation, of course, is not forbidden, but it should be borne in mind: workouts are balanced by a professional fitness instructor, and the achievement of optimal results when deviating from a given course is not guaranteed.
