Become a BODYSHRED™ Instructor!

Jillian Michaels BODYSHRED™ is a high-intensity and endurance based 30 minute workout utilizing Jillian’s 3-2-1 interval approach.

3 minutes of strength / 2 minutes of cardio / 1 minute of abs

BODYSHRED™ is ‘Intelligent Training.’ It’s kinetic, it’s energetic; it provides the ultimate challenge, regardless of level integrating all of the most progressive exercise science techniques used by world-class athletes into one program. Elite workout methods like HIIT, PHA, plyometrics, super-setting, combo lifting, 3-dimensional movement possibilities, functional bodyweight training and much more, come together in one powerful class that offers you the most successful way to get lean and shredded fast.

BODYSHRED™ not only burns more calories while you’re training, but can literally ACCELERATE your metabolism long after the workout is finished so you continue burning fat and calories at a higher rate – for up to 24-48 hours post training. You’ll shed fat, define muscle, dramatically enhance athletic performance, and transform your physique. This class is unparalleled in its approach and its results!

How is it different from other Group Fitness classes?

BODYSHRED™ is utterly unique in the type of exercises you’ll experience as well as the programming. There are over 250 separate exercises and none of the classes repeat circuits so your body will never adapt. You’re always moving, there are no breaks, no delays; it is literally non-stop for 30 straight minutes once the music starts. Most other classes range from 45-90 minutes and can’t deliver the same results that BODYSHRED™ does in practically half the time. Possibly the most significant answer is that the program is validated by proven results that Jillian has gotten repeatedly with clients, based on her methodology. Not many group fitness classes have this kind of track record.
