Jillian Michaels' knowledge of fitness training stems from years of martial arts and intense personal training. Best known as a former trainer and coach on NBC's hit TV show The Biggest Loser, Jillian Michaels was an amazing motivator, personal trainer and guide to nearly 15 million Biggest Loser viewers every week. Before she was a massive television star, Jillian struggled to maintain her own healthy weight. She knows firsthand the trials and commitment it requires to lose weight and keep it off. Now she's set her sights on helping you reach your goals!

Jillian is currently a co-host on the popular TV show The Doctors. Jillian loves the idea of being able to empower people with information and support to help them live their healthiest lives. Being a co-host on the show allows Jillian a platform to educate people on how to make health choices that will enable them to take control of their physical well being. Jillian is also working as a special health and wellness correspondent for the Dr. Phil show.

Jillian has created her own wellness media empire, and has written several books about weight loss and fitness, has a self-named Wii game, a self-named meal delivery program, an online diet program, a weekly radio show, a fitness DVD and is a contributor to Redbook Magazine and Cosmo Girl.

Here's a snapshot of Jillian's programs:

Jillian Michaels: Making the Cut: This mega popular book is a 30-day body-makeover guide that assesses your metabolism and guides you to eat appropriately for your specific metabolic type so that your body is using that energy and burning effectively. Making the Cut also contains self-empowerment tips and suggestions to overcome negative thinking and poor self-confidence.

Jillian Michaels: 30-Day Shred: Jillian’s popular workout DVD is designed to help you drop those last 10-20 pounds in just 30 days.

Her books and online program offer lots of helpful information, recipes and meal calculation tools that will give you the needed help to eat healthy on your way to weight loss.

She endorses a diet that is low-fat, low-carb and high in protein. Her eating plans generally feature three meals and a snack throughout the day, all of which include a lean protein source. Her online membership program contains the most comprehensive and personalized diet plan while her meal-delivery program offers you the convenience of eating Jillian-approved meals and snacks without having to prepare them.

  • Breakfast – Cheerios with a banana or berries
  • Lunch – Grilled Sirloin Salad
  • Snack – Mozzarella cheese and a pear

EXERCISE

The foundation of Jillian's program is exercise. She is a staunch proponent that consistent exercise is the most effective way to burn fat and calories. Her exercise programs all contain a cardiovascular and strength-training component that increase in their intensity as you move through them.

Her super-tough fitness philosophy have brought some of her former Biggest Loser team members to tears, but it's her trademark motivational support that results in the achievement of weight loss goals and an almost contagious love and appreciation for exercise.

Her online program is jam-packed with fitness instruction and routines. Her website features weight trackers, fitness planners and more than 150, printable exercises to keep you moving, never bored and your muscles constantly challenged.

Jillian also continues to release new workout DVDs for those that want to get their best body without leaving the house. Her fitness DVDs continue to push just as hard as she would if she was personally training you. Something you will find among all of Jillian’s DVDs is effective workouts that can be done in a reasonable amount of time. No matter what your fitness goals, Jillian can help you reach them if you are willing to put in the work. Some of the popular DVDs you will find by Jillian include:

CONCLUSION

Well-rounded, exercise intensive and educational, the Jillian Michaels plan is based on science and created for anyone who is ready to commit to losing weight. Jillian doesn't say it's easy, but does say she'll make it easier by providing you all the tools and information you need, whether it is through her books, workout DVDs, online programs or meal-delivery plan.

Jillian's lengthy resume proves she has the knowledge and experience to guide you on your weight loss journey.

Wikipedia

Jillian Michaels (born 18 February, 1974) is a fitness expert who gained prominence as a trainer on the NBC weight-loss reality series ''The Biggest Loser'' (USA). Michaels was the trainer for the red team until 2006, when she was replaced by Kim Lyons. She returned in 2007 as the black team coach, competing against Kim's red team and Bob Harper's blue team. Kim decided not to return for the spring 2008 season, leaving Jillian as the only female trainer. Along with Bob Harper, Jillian is also a trainer in the Australian version of the show. She began her career in exercise because she was considerably overweight before her teenage years (though not as much as the contestants she whips into shape now). As a young adult, her mother enrolled her in a martial arts class, which was a new beginning for Jillian. Thereafter she dedicated herself to helping the overweight transform their lives and their bodies for the better.

Hello I am 37 year old mother of two I have been over weight for years now. I would like any information you can give me on how i can safely lose weight. I am over 550 pounds and want to weigh around 200. But like most people in this day and age I am on a fixed budget and it is hard to afford most programs. Even when you know it will save your life it is hard to do if you have no funds to do with. I would like to know how to be picked to go on this ranch i have been reading about or how someone like me can get personal help with a fixed income. Please email me back and give me any information you can on how i can get some help. thanks

I love Jillian Michaels. I have lost 20 lbs so far. I got me a Nordic Trac treadmill with iFit Live, which means I get to work out with her every day. It is very encouraging. I set it up so I can watch TV while I excercise and time simply flies! I have a 100 lbs to go, but now that I have Jillian pushing me, I know I can do it. Thanks!

My husband and I watch the Biggest Loser and have been quite motivated and continue to be. Since January 1, we have each lost 25 pounds. It takes exercising (which we do every day) and counting our calories intake. Keep up the good work you are doing for those unable to do it on their own.
