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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I just got into fitness and exercise about 2 months ago, I use a lot of Jillian's workout dvd's( shred it in 30 days, yoga, and my FAVORITE shred it with weights) I can't afford to run out and buy all the new stuff but I've found you can use household objects in place of weights and I'm seeing major results. Thank you Jillian and all you do :)

It truly sadden me to find, out jillian will be leaving the show. Jillian and Bob started this show. I'm one of jillian, biggest fans. I wanted to, sign up for the show. Now, I've had a change of heart. the show won't be the same once , she's gone. It's like watching American idol, once Simon left, some of the show ratings have went down. Jillian has inspired me to motivate myself. I frequently go on her website. I just don't know. I may not watch the show anymore after, this season. I will continue to strive and lose my weight on my own. Bob, hang in there. Jillian u will be missed. Thank you for hearing me out.

face it all. losing weight thru any name, tv, or show... all about the money.
Jenny craig, weight watcher, etc.. If you can't buy it, you can't lose it!! I wrote them all. We are one income family. Kids are grown, but we took in our Grandchildren. Their needs come first, thus why I began writing for help. Motivation number one need. but its a pkg. thing. you need it all, the time, the motivation,the money,the right foods, exercise, and of course the one sponsor help support. I am trying this again, alone, trying to keep positive. wishing you all fu=ind your help. I'm tired of the people with money, or looks, or a name, being the ones to look and feel good bout themselves. I'm a damn good woman,wife,mother,grandmother,friend,sister, and human being.

I signed up for this program for the meal planning, but found out when I paid the $54 subscription that it DOES NOT offer meal planning for vegetarians.

I contacted the company, and they refused to refund my money.

Also, the $54 3-month subscription DOES NOT include personalized training, as their website implies. You have to pay an additional weekly fee to access that feature.

I am starting a combinantion. I have been on the south beach diet for 4 months and lost 30 pounds. Now I am on a stand still. So I combined the powerwalk and cardio max weight loss dvd and the south beach diet; I lost 7 pounds in two weeks. Even though I have 65 more pounds to go I am more motivated than ever. I was very sore all over cuz I was using muscles I wasn't using before. Without those dvd's I feel I will still be struggling. Thank you.
