Jillian Michaels Covers 'Redbook' July 2010
Here’s what the 36-year-old Biggest Loser trainer, who even shared a photo from her teenage years, had to share:
On her weight struggles: “Oh, my God, it was pure hell. I spent all of eighth grade in my classroom because God forbid I ever left. I was terrorized. And karate saved my life. It all stopped the day I broke two boards with a kick.”
On the biggest misconception people have about her: “I really don’t have a mean bone in my body! Do you know how easy it would be to tell people what they want to hear? It would be heaven! But, unfortunately, it doesn’t get the job done.”
On finding inspiration to get healthy: “You have to establish the why: Why do you want to change your life? What’s inspiring and motivating you? A long life? To wear your skinny jeans to your 10-year high school reunion? That why is gonna carry you through.”
FYI: Jillian will be hosting the All-Star Game Charity 5K and Fun Run in Los Angeles on July 11! Learn more or register to run at AllStarGame.com!
