Jillian Michaels is a trainer and life coach to the contestants on NBC's hit weight-loss series "The Biggest Loser." As a motivator and role model, Jillian Michaels has a unique connection with her audience that stems from her own personal journey for wellness.

Michaels shared her team's losing secret in her debut fitness book, "Winning By Losing: Drop the Weight, Change Your Life," published by Harper Collins Press. The book presents Michaels' scientifically sound, refreshingly sensible and personalized way of approaching weight loss and maintenance. "Winning By Losing" is a three-prong approach to total fitness that is based in solid psychological methods, proven scientific facts, and good old-fashioned hard work. With the success of her first publication, Michaels has released her second book "Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You," published by Crown publishing. Released in April 2007, this book focuses on the most efficient and healthy way to lose weight within a 30-day time frame.

In addition to her books, Michaels has also combined the best fitness training techniques with the most successful tips on nutrition to maximize home workout routines. Michaels' brilliant routine is now available on DVD and on online.

Michaels' boundless energy and devotion to helping others enables her to be a life coach to those she trains. By imparting her unique and inspiring philosophy to her clients, stressing the integration of fitness, nutrition, and behavioral changes, Michaels empowers each one to define and reach personal goals, both physical and physiological.

Michaels' passion for fitness training originates from 17 years of martial arts practice in Muay Thai and Akarui-Do, in which she holds a black belt. Since 1993, Michaels has held two personal training certificates from the leading certification programs in the country, the National Endurance and Strength Training Association (NESTA) and the American Fitness Association of America (AFAA). During that time Michaels has helped shape and inspire the lives of millions. In addition, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has recognized Michaels for her work in Advanced Exercise Nutrition and Supplementation for Training and Performance.

Michaels' dynamic approach emphasizes strength-training modalities that can be transferred from the gym to daily life. Michaels' intense and effective technique incorporates the best of kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, plyometrics, and weight training to achieve optimal results. Michaels is also proficient in Reebok Core, injury rehabilitation, endurance training, muscle growth, fat reduction and sports nutrition.

Michaels lives in Los Angeles with her beloved and faithful Chihuahua, Baxter. When she's not on the TV set, Michaels enjoys traveling and getting involved in charitable activities. Michaels is a celebrity advisor to National Day of Dance for Heart Health, an organization that encourages people to make exercise fun and to laugh, learn and dance to a healthier heart. On top of her work with National Dance, Michaels is the 2007 spokesperson for the American Cancer Society's National Health Challenge, and beginning this spring, she will be AOL's Fitness Coach for 2007.

You Go Girl!! I have been married to my same Goddess for over 32years. 3 years ago I had a nasty fall and messed myself up bad. Broke my back, damaging my spinal cord and much more. Through better or worse. My High School Sweetheart is still with me. But my consern is for her. With all the extra stress and trouble she is having a tough time with her weight. Recently she was diagnosed with Diabetes. I am very worried. She has Biggest Loser books and cook books. Along with many others. She just can't seem to make anything click. We are members of a gym. She does try but gets descouraged after a few months of up and down. I am in constant pain and not able to be a good workout partner. I think you are doing a great job. I know my Wife is a fan as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated. One more idea! What about a show for people that are not able to run, jump, etc. Because of injuries, or other physical challenges.
