Jillian Michaels Slim-Down is an online fitness and nutrition service which is designed to get you into the routine of staying fit and loosing weight. You can access Slim-Down via the website, iPhone, iPad, and Android device. People best know Jillian Michaels from her TV appearances as a trainer, wellness expert and life coach. She was one of the original trainers on NBC's reality series "The Biggest Loser" and is a co-host of the panel-discussion show "The Doctors".

Jillian Michaels has been a fitness expert and wellness coach since 1993. Jillian currently holds two personal training certificates from the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) and the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association (NESTA). She also is Kettlebell Concepts certified and holds a black belt in Muay Thai and Akarui-Do.

Jillian Michaels Fitness Programs

With Jillian Michaels you get access to more than 170 exercises with easy-to-follow video instructions. Each video is designed for a certain fitness level (newbie, advanced, and hard core) and each shows which muscle groups are worked. You also get text step instructions along with the videos to help you to perform the workout.

Some equipment will be required when you are working out. With all programs you should have a good pair of running shoes and a exercise mat. Some of the videos also make use of exercise balls and low weight dumbbells or exercise bands.

The Regimen and Tools

Jillian has designed her regimen to allow you to lose weight with hard work and her special type of motivation. When you first sign up to the service you are asked a series of questions to figure out what your health goals are. The answers to these questions allows you to get a personalized list of suggest fitness programs along with daily meal plans. Meal plans are included for breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner. When you want to lose weight you not only have to increase your physical activities but you have to start eating right and control your food portions.

Included with the mobile app and on the website are digital tools designed to help you accomplish your health goals. You have direct access to the fitness videos and meal plans along with their accompanying trackers and journals. When you select your meal plans a weekly shopping list will automatically get generated which you can modify as needed. This is a great tool designed to keep only the right foods in your fridge. Other tools include a meal, fitness, and weight trackers. The information from these trackers gets combined and represent your daily journal. You also can record your thoughts and successes.

The Challenges

Every day, Jillian Michael's members are taking part in team and individual challenges to stay motivated and on track to meet their goals. With many of these challenges to help with motivation, prizes will be awarded. Prizes have ranged from subscriptions, books and DVDs, to hardcore one-on-one workouts, meet-and-greet events, and an all-inclusive Caribbean cruise with Jillian Michaels herself. There are always many challenges on going. Here are a few of the current and past challenges:

  • Getting Started - This ongoing challenge helps newbies (or those who want to start anew) dig into the program, set and meet goals, and get real results. A new challenge kicks off each month
  • #Jillians100days - You are tasked with doing one healthy thing each day
  • Jill Scouts - An 8 week team challenge which pushes members to get back to their core diet and fitness values (including emotionally and mentally). You get to form "troops" and earn badges while you battle for weekly and grand prizes
  • Buddy Up - Members are encouraged to help their loved ones set and meet their diet and fitness goals and learn to make smarter decisions
  • Six Week Slim Down Challenge - This challenge helps you zero in on both your diet and fitness goals. With informative blogs, tips and tasks

I had heard of Jillian before but I first really paid attention to here about 2 years ago when I was at a low point in my life. My weight was very high for my 5' figure and I was really depressed about it. It didn't help either that I had just gotten divorced a few months earlier. I saw Jillian Micheal's on the Biggest Loser and I was hooked.  I followed her along on the show but quickly switched to her online program which I could tailor to my own needs (since I do work and am approaching 50 and am not as young as the contestants on her shows). 

It took about 10 months but did I lose the weight I wanted. It wasn't easy but through the motivation of the friends I made online and Jillian's great fitness routines I made it. I still continue to use the service on a daily basis. I have met so many friends (shout out to all of you)  and there are so many work out programs that you will never get bored.

BTW I can't wait for the new season of the Biggest Loser as Jillian is back on it!
You can't help but be aspired by Jillian's energy.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
