Jillian Michaels is the world’s leading fitness expert, and renowned life coach who has starred on multiple television shows, has published 8 New York Times best-selling books, and is the founder of a monumental wellness empire, Empowered Media LLC. Talk about being a boss. We heard straight from Jillian herself about one of her newest ventures, and why it means so much to her: “I’m always excited to share my My Fitness by Jillian Michaels app with people because it allows me to be your personal trainer and nutritionist. You provide me with all of your needs, goals, and preferences for fitness and nutrition and then I customize your workouts and meal plans. Whether you want to train for a 5k, do a post-natal workout, lose 10 pounds, lose 50 lbs, are a beginner athlete, or an advanced athlete, My Fitness has it all. It also designs your meal plan to optimize your food preferences and ensure your health goals.” If that’s not enough, she also has an exciting new book coming out in December titled The 6 Keys: Unlock Your Genetic Potential for Ageless Strength, Health, and Beauty, where she uses cutting-edge research “to examine the myths, mayhem and misunderstandings associated with aging then present an ageless health, fitness and beauty plan.” Below, Jillian shares everything she eats to fuel her busy days.
