Jillian Michaels had been on the forefront of the fitness world for over 19 years when she became a personal trainer. While you may know her best from her role on the hit series, "The Biggest Loser," she is much more than a reality TV star and hardcore fitness trainer.
Since Jillian struggled with her own weight issues growing up, she knows firsthand the implications that these problems can have in a person's life. In fact, the problems she experienced herself are what spurred her on to not only meet her own fitness goals, but to also help countless others meet theirs.
Prior to becoming a personal trainer nearly two decades ago, Jillian owned and operated a sports medicine facility. There she worked as a physical therapy aide under the direction of physical therapists, psychiatrists and other medical professionals.
Additionally, Jillian has 17 years of experience in martial arts. This experience has only served to increase her passion about fitness and the power that improving one's health can make in their life. As if her personal training certificates were not enough, she has now mastered the world of books, DVDs and video games as well. Four of her books have made the New York Times Bestsellers list and her numerous fitness DVDs and games are constant bestsellers.
Perhaps best of all, Jillian's focus is on all aspects of healthy living. This involves weight loss, lifestyle changes, nutritional and behavioral changes and psychological wellbeing. As a life coach and fitness guru, Jillian has motivation and the power of positive thinking on her side. Thankfully, she shares these important techniques with those who want to affect powerful changes in their lives.
