I read a very well written piece in this months “Self Magazine” about jillian Michaels. The hard core trainer on Tv’s hit series “The Biggest Loser” actually tells you how hard they REALLY work on that show! Not only does Michales dish on the background of the show, she also gives you insight into what it takes to be one of the biggest trainers in the business.
Here are the highlights from the article….
Jillian reveals that even when the camera aren’t rolling the contestants from the show are working out doing cardio up to 5 hours per day! While the workouts are in progress the 2 trainers are working overtime trying to push all the contestants. Bob and Jillian work 14 hour days, 6 days a week to make that show what it is. Talk about stress!
According to Jillian, there is about 100 hours of shooting for each episode, yet only about 10 minutes of that gets aired on TV. In the end the editors of the show cut and past the clips to make Jillian the villain and Bob the “nice guy.”
Michaels credits her clients success to a combination of emotional and physical changes. She even admits that she gets therapy on a regular basis saying “we have to analyze how our unconscious behaviors create our reality.”
For the whole in depth article check out July’s issue of “Self Magazine.” You can also log onto “Self Magazine’s” website to get clips of Jillian’s “Top Get Fit Tips.”
