Product Features

One of the worst things to overcome when trying to exercise for weight loss is boredom. The Jillian Michaels Hot Bod in a Box set of 50 exercise cards may help the dieter break through the boredom plateau. Each card describes a different exercise. The user simply draws a card from the stack and completes the exercise described on the card. Some exercises require fitness equipment like dumbbells and an exercise ball, while others require no equipment at all. It is best to leaf through the cards before starting a workout to gather all equipment needed.

In addition to individual exercises, some of the cards depict an entire workout. Cards are color coded, so the complete workouts are easy to pull from the deck. Dieters may find it easier to pull out 10 cards focused on the area they wish to work on a given day and shuffle the cards. Each exercise is completed for 2 to 3 minutes with a 30-minute workout being complete by the end.

The cards are based on exercises described in the book, Making the Cut. While the dieter does not have to own the book to understand the exercises, they may have a better understanding of the workouts if they read the companion literature.
