Trainer Jillian Michaels Isn't a Big Fan of Gym Selfies

Trainer Jillian Michaels Isn't a Big Fan of Gym Selfies

Jillian Michaels flaunts her amazing figure on the January/February 2016 cover of Women’s Health magazine.

Here’s what the 41-year-old personal trainer shared with the mag:

On the “belfie” trend: “I’m not into fitness professionals who post selfies that show off their butts or other body parts. Come on, that’s not fitness—it’s softcore porn. God bless, but let’s call it what it is. We’ve come so far, and this is where you’re taking the movement? Put your clothes on. I get it—you love your body and bravo that—but it’s not fitness. Fitness to me is about empowering people. It’s about redefining self-image.”

On acceptance: “I think people need to love themselves no matter who they are or what they look like, because only from that place can you truly have happiness and abundance. But I’m not going to embrace people being unhealthy. People ask me what’s a through line for the morbidly obese, and I’d say a lack of self worth. If you really loved yourself, you would know that if we cut your artery open, it wouldn’t be a beautiful thing. So this is where I’m like, ‘Let’s completely separate your beauty and your worth from your body. You as a person? You’re beautiful; you’re worthy. Your body? Unhealthy.’ Let’s cut the sh–.”

On having it all:Maria Shriver said this so well: ‘Yeah, just not at the same time.’ For Heidi and me, it worked out: I love my career, whereas she just wants to be a mom. She used to work with musicians but gave it up because she didn’t like the business side of it. Now she’s happy: To her, this is all. She loves gardening, farms, and kids. She’s very earth mother. I want to work really hard for 10 years, and by 50, I’m on a reserve in Africa.”

    Natural is always best for little/big size, small/large skeletal frame – takes longer to get to your goals whether you have low/high metabolism, slow/fast muscles… when you find the time to workout there’s much better results…
