Fitness guru Jillian Michaels graces the March 2013 cover of Health magazine, in which she names some of the best bodies in Hollywood, talks about her return to “The Biggest Loser” and shares her strategies for staying fit.
1. J.Lo -- “She looks crazy [good].”
2. Rihanna -- “Musicians can be thick, in a great way. Thick and curvy and sexy.”
3. Beyoncé -- “That’s a sexy body. And healthy, she can dance for three hours and sing the whole time!”
4. Pink -- “I gotta say Pink, because I helped her.”
On being tough on this season’s “The Biggest Loser” contestants, the trainer explained, “If I’m taking time away from my company and kids, you had better show the f**k up and mean business. I would say I’m worse than ever!”
As for finding the motivation to stay healthy, Michaels said ask yourself “Why?” She added, “Broccoli and chicken is not fun, but skinny jeans are fun. So if you want to get slim -- and stay that way -- you need to first ask yourself: What is my why? What am I fighting for? Is it worth it?”
What is her No. 1 calorie-burning trick? “Stand whenever you can. Standing burns 1.5 times more calories than sitting. Stand when you’re at the doctor’s office, when you watch TV, even when you work at your computer -- I put mine on the kitchen counter. Just stand.”
