I haven't tried the Get Ripped 1000, but I have the original Get Ripped and Slim and Lean. I really like them. I am an intermediate and they are a good workout for me. I was a beginner when I started the original Get Ripped and was able to do it fairly easily.
I've read many reviews as well. I have seen many people state that Jari's personality is a little dry, but I really like her. I'm not one for the over bubbly, enthustiastic types (i.e. Denise Austin). Jari seems to be a good fit for me. I haven't done her workouts in about a month but am anxious to get back into them. Also, I tried out her DVDs on NetFlix before I purchased so that I could get a good feel of them beforehand.
