In a previous article we covered the write up on Jillian Michaels in the LA Times. Now a fuming Michaels adamantly defends her credentials, her experience, and her DVD. Here’s a clip from our last article to catch you up …
I was shocked to read as the LA Times bashed the celebrity trainer, her form and her credentials. According to the article, Jillian’s fitness background is limited. She does have 2 certifications ( (National Exercise & Sports Trainers Assn. and Aerobics and Fitness Assn. of America). However, they claim she is merely an actress playing the role of a fitness professional.
After the article was printed in the LA Times claiming that Jillian was just an actress, she shot back. She lashed out with threats of legal action if the times did not retract their statements of “slander.” There is now a long piece of apology and correction refering to the first article. Jillian also submitted proof of her 2 certifications. I think the LA Time will think twice before messing with the hard core trainer from the Biggest Loser. She definitely didn’t climb her way to the top by being a push over.
