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.”

Gabrielle Union Addresses Nude Photo Hack: 'I Didn't Do Anything Wrong'

Gabrielle Union sits on stage with editor-in-chief Joanna Coles at Cosmopolitan Magazine‘s Fun Fearless Life Conference held at The David Koch Theatre at Lincoln Center on Sunday (November 9) in New York City.

The 42-year-old actress, who was joined by Kelly Osbourne and Jillian Michaels at the event, discussed the celebrity nude hacking scandal at the event.

“I didn’t do anything wrong — no matter what people describe to me, ‘It’s your fault, you’re stupid to take nude photos, that’s what happens when you’re a celebrity’ — all this nonsense, … they’re criminals. What you do with your own body is your choice. Period. There’s no gray matter there. And when someone takes your choice away and your power away over your own body, it’s a crime. Period. A hacking scandal? We’re lessening it, making it more palatable for mass consumption, but it’s a crime,” Gabrielle said (via THR). “Over a hundred women were targeted — if these women weren’t celebrities, there would be much more outrage, but because we’re female celebrities, ‘we weren’t good victims and we enjoyed it, all PR is good PR.’ That’s what they say.” More Here! »

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!

Anna Kournikova Confirmed as 'Biggest Loser' Trainer

It’s official: Anna Kournikova will be The Biggest Loser‘s new celebrity trainer!

The 29-year-old Russian-born tennis star is joining the NBC reality show as longtime trainer Jillian Michaels leaves.

But sources also told NYMag‘s Vulture that current trainers Brett Hoebel and Cara Castronuova will not be returning.

Executive producer Todd Lubin wouldn’t comment on Brett and Cara, but did tell Vulture the show “intentionally tried to not replace Jillian.”

“[Anna] grew up with very little in Moscow, pounding tennis balls every day when she was 5. That’s the drive she’s bringing to the show,” he added.

Jillian Michaels Covers 'Shape' May 2011

Jillian Michaels shows off her fabulous bikini bod on the cover of Shape magazine’s May 2011 issue, on newsstands Monday (April 18).

Here’s what the 37-year-old Biggest Loser star had to share:

On eating things that aren’t necessarily good for her: “I give food a number on a scale from one to 10. Ones are superfoods and will practically cure cancer, like organic spinach. Tens are crap that could kill you tomorrow, like a prepackaged cupcake. The highest I’ll go is a five or six. For example, I adore Popchips. They’re 100 calories a bag – no preservatives, no trans fats, and no artificial sweeteners. Is it a superfood? No. But will it kill me? No!”

On her own trouble zones: “There’s this one dimple on the back of my butt that’s like a cavern. I swear to you, it’s just un-friggin’-believable! No matter how thin I get, I still have cellulite. I’ve tried every cream. I’ve ironed my ass at the plastic surgeon’s office with a laser – nothing worked. I’ve finally reached a point where I accept my flaw, but that doesn’t mean I feel good about it.”

On being proud to be in therapy: “I’ve been seeing a shrink since I was 5. I said to him the other day, ‘How am I still talking to you? Why am I not the Buddha at this point?’ But it does help control those behaviors that can send you to the fridge or compel you to tell your boss to shove it!”

On being ready to be a mom: “While filming Losing It last year, I lived with these amazing kids. It was such a powerful experience for me. I recognized that I have a giant hole in my life, and it was the deciding factor for me to adopt a child.”
