Jillian Michaels


No matter how happy, successful or powerful someone may seem to be, every one of us struggles with something. You never know what challenges someone is facing in his or her personal life, but what we’ve all learned is we need the support of others who understand what we’re going through to make it to the other side.

Jillian Michaels is one of the most successful health and fitness experts of all time. She spent years coaching contestants on the hit TV show The Biggest Loser, she’s written best-selling books and released wildly successful exercise DVDs and programs. But do you know her personal story? Do you have any idea what she’s been through?

She’s sharing her struggles on her new show, Just Jillian, airing on E!, and she says she hopes it shows people that we all have flaws and challenges but we all also have the ability to overcome our issues and our pasts.

Jillian talks to Growing Bolder about her rough start in life and how she learned to find healthier ways to cope. She also offers a pep talk to help us visualize the futures we want and how our day-to-day actions will impact those dreams coming true.
