Jillian Michaels is one of the most famous fitness trainers in the world, known for using tough love to achieve extreme results. For a decade, she was the face of the hit television show, “The Biggest Loser.” Today, she’s talking to Growing Bolder about her own personal transformation, from an overweight kid to what she’s learned about inspiring the kind of mental outlook it takes for anyone to gain control over their weight, their health and their lives.
