When you’re the most successful trainer in the biz, with New York times best-selling books, fitness dvd’s flying off the shelves , 11 seasons on TV, what else could you possibly do? I guess the only thing left to do is take it all off!
That’s exactly what Jillian Michaels did! That’s right, this fitness guru took it all off and showed the world that even at age 40 you can be in your prime! And oh yeah, that prime time TV show she has called “The Biggest Loser”, she’s chucking the deuces, and calling it quits.
Covering the July issue of Shape magazine, Miss Michaels gives us an intimate look at her sculpted 40-year-old physique, and tells us that she feels even more comfortable in her skin now, then she ever has before.
“When I think back on my 20s and 30s, I look better now than I ever have. Yes, I’m older but I’m also wiser and that’s a more intrinsic type of beauty,”
Jillian may be referring to her battle with being over weight as a teenager, but when she decided to take up martial arts it sparked her passion to lose weight and eventually led her to a career in fitness.
But after a very long yet successful career in fitness, and getting people in the best shape of their lives on national television for over 10 years, she’s ready to say good-bye to the Biggest Loser, possibly for good this time;
“After helping hundreds of contestants transform their lives and inspiring millions of viewers at home, The Biggest Loser and Jillian Michaels have decided to part ways and she will not be returning for season 16 when it airs in the fall,” NBC said in a statement earlier today.
With an estimated net worth of $4 Million dollars, I think it’s a good time for Jillian to sit back and enjoy the rewards of her hard work.
What do you think of Jillian taking it all off? And, who do you think will replace her on Biggest Loser?
