i love you jillian, but really, why do you try so hard to kill me?
so i did her workout today - ‘banish fat, boost metabolism’ (i think its called that anyway haha, i really cant bring myself to drag myself over to the dvd case to check), and its a good long sweat fest of just over 40 minutes.
no equipment, just good old fashioned high knees, butt kicks, sumo squat hops, front, side and back kicks, punches, star jumps, plank oblique twists, mountain climbers etc etc etc.
seriously, i was sweating like a lunatic! i thought we were done, at the end of the last circuit, and she said ”just two more circuits until cool-down!!” haha i wanted to cry!! ok, so each circuit is only six minutes long, but still!! when you are already wanting to lie on the floor and close your eyes, twelve minutes can seem like a lifetime!
but wow, i felt amazing afterwards.
there is NO feeling like finishing a damned good workout.
i cant see how anyone doesnt like jillian michaels, yes, she is no-nonsense, and doesnt fanny about saying crap like ”its ok…..come on…just do what you can!!”. she pushes you, but seriously, whats wrong with that? i adore how she works. i love that woman! she’s everything i would need in a personal trainer.
all hail queen jillian!
