Jillian Michaels Reveals She Had COVID-19, Warns Fans About Dangers of Going to the Gym

Jillian Michaels has revealed that she battled coronavirus earlier this summer.

The 46-year-old fitness trainer shared in a new interview with Fox Business that she got sick after she “literally let her guard down for an hour with one of my best friends.”

Also during her interview, Jillian warned viewers about going to work out now that gyms are starting to reopen amid the pandemic.

“If you are afraid of COVID, you should not go to the gym. And I actually am a person who let my guard down, I haven’t even spoken about this publicly really, and a very close friend of mine gave me COVID several weeks ago, Jillian shared. “I’m fortunate to have gone into it being healthy and I was able to get on the other side of it pretty quick. But, not everyone is that lucky as we know.”

“And all I can tell you is if you are afraid of getting COVID, a public gym is probably a place where you will get it,” Jillian continued. “I’m fortunate to have gone into it being healthy and I was able to get on the other side of it pretty quick.
