Jillian Michaels: Take A Day Off From the Gym!

Jillian Michaels: Take A Day Off From the Gym!

Jillian Michaels shows off her toned tummy in this photo shoot from Self‘s January issue.

Here’s what the 37-year-old celeb trainer, who’s also the mag’s cover girl, had to share:

On not making New Year’s resolutions: “I think that any day is an opportunity to change your life. So I don’t really look for a period of time where I go, ‘Oh yes, this is what I’m going to change.’ Whenever I realize that I am unhappy with something or I’m off course and I need to make a quick course correction, I can do that whether its January or June.”

On not clocking in hours at the gym: “You know you are overdoing it if you are spending more than 5-6 hours a week in the gym. I really, really think you need one day off – your body needs to rest and you need that recovery time. So, if you are going over 6 hours a week, you definitely may have an exercise addiction – unless you are morbidly obese and you have a ton of weight to lose. That’s a different story.

Jillian put together a 16-minute equipment-free exercise program for Self readers – check out the video on Self.com!
