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!

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: Adopting a Baby from the Congo!

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.”

Jillian Michaels shows off her toned tummy on the cover of Redbook‘s July 2010 issue, on newsstands

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!

Jillian Michaels Is Sued For The Third Time

Jillian Michaels Covers 'Ladies' Home Journal' February 2010

The Biggest Loser‘s Jillian Michaels shows off her toned tummy on the cover of Ladies’ Home Journal‘s February 2010 issue, on newsstands January 12 (Tuesday).

Here’s what the 35-year-old trainer had to share:

On being an overweight and angry teen: “I lived on junk food. I had no direction. Once I punched a hole in our wall. Another time I stole a car….[My father and I] sort of bonded over food. When he was alone with me and we had nothing to say to each other, it would be like, ‘Let’s eat a pizza!’”

On worries about the contestants’ safety: “You’re the fifth person to say that to me this week. And you’re not wrong. The contestants keep getting bigger and bigger…As the trainers we have no say over the challenges. We worry about them too.”

On love: “Let’s just say I believe in healthy love. If I fall in love with a woman, that’s awesome. If I fall in love with a man, that’s awesome. As long as you fall in love…it’s like organic food. I only eat healthy food, and I only want healthy love!”
