Known as the most kick-ass trainer ever to grace our TV screens, you might think that meeting Jillian Michaels would be somewhat of an intimidating experience. After all, she became a household name on The Biggest Loser, gaining fame as the in-your-face drill sergeant who screamed motivation into her subjects with a steely glare and a pair of guns you don’t wanna be messing with.
So imagine my surprise as I trotted into the Chatelaine Kitchen and saw Ms. Michaels perched on a stool in all her toned glory, welcoming each reporter with a friendly smile and a firm handshake. Despite spending the last couple of months hopping between 35 cities with her Maximize Your Life tour, promoting her most recent book, Slim for Life, and combining all that while being a mother to her two young children, the hard-working entrepreneur was bright-eyed and chatty and not scary at all (though I still wouldn’t want to risk getting on the wrong side of her)!
Check out our interview with Jillian and watch as I dig for some motivational tips and find out if the health nut has any vices at all… You’ll be surprised!
