We’ve turned working out in to an all-star career. While most personal trainers toil away in gyms across the nation, a few rise to become household names. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard someone suggest what they’d give for even an hour with Jillian Michaels.
The former Biggest Loser trainer is probably the most well-known celebrity trainer these days, with a media empire rivaled by very few. Her face and name are on everything from DVDs and gym equipment to workout clothes and supplements. If you want to lose weight, Jillian Michaels seems to light the way.
She’s not the first to have lead overweight Americans to their goals without ever having met. Richard Simmons, Billy Blanks, and Suzanne Somers are just a few of the famous fit faces highlighted in this poster from The Flex Belt. (more…)
Actress and author Suzanne Somers has released a new book called ‘Bombshell: Explosive Medical Secrets That Will Redefine Aging.” Of her 23rd book, Somers says what she’s trying to do is ‘make aging aspirational.’
“I turned 65 this year and on my birthday I thought, ‘When I was a kid, 65 used to be when people either retired or died, and I’m so nowhere near those scenarios,” the star said during a recent interview on The Today Show. ‘And I started really assessing what it was that I do and thought I’d pass that on.
Somers say she’s chosen to use this part of her career to gather the brightest minds in the kind of health she’s interested in – including Western doctors and those offering breakthrough medical treatments – and share that with the world.

The Doctors are going to get us all in the mood for love this Valentine’s Day with a jam packed episode planned for February 14th as they dive into the science behind love.
Amongst the advice from Dr. Ruth, The Doctors will be giving quite a bit of their own. Keeping with the romance theme, the benefits of making out will be explained. Did you know that kissing releases the “love hormone” oxytocin? Or how about the fact that the lips have 100 times more the nerve endings than the fingertips? They also determine making out can slim you. A couple makes out the entire episode while hooked up to heart monitors and calorie counters and burn a whopping 575 calories!
Dr. Ordon will chime in with ways to get the skin ready for your big Valentine’s Day date. He introduces two romantic and healthy facial recipes. An organic chocolate-covered cherry facial is sensual and medicinal as cocoa can fight free radicals and cherries are a natural anti-inflammatory. He also offers an emerald and roses facial comprised of a green tea mask and rose petals. The tea can prevent wrinkles and the rose petals seal in moisture.
New year’s resolutions are mostly synonymous with weight loss. It’s not a bad goal to set when you remember that about half of our country is considered obese.

While they are the pictures of health, many of them are also looking at introducing new habits to their lifestyles in the coming year.
