Ripped in 30 Who doesn't want to get a kick-ass workout with Jillian Michaels? We've loved her workout DVDs in the past, and Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 ($8) is no exception to the rule. The DVD offers four 24-minute workouts based on Jillian's 3-2-1 interval system: three minutes of strength, two minutes of cardio, and one minute of abs. As you progress over the month, each workout gets tougher to keep you on your toes.

The eight combinations that make up the workout are like a jazzy version of petite allegro (the jumping section of a dance class). Tracy does have a strong background in dance, so this DVD is best for someone with some dance experience!

All four of the DVDs offer wonderful instruction, but I was particularly taken with the first DVD of the set, Daily Yoga For Everyone.

But if a location of this barre toning workout hasn't hit your neck of the woods yet, you can try it for yourself in its set of three PopPhysique DVDs ($30).
