Here’s the reality: in this country, epidemic rates of obesity, diabetes, breast cancer and heart disease add up to one of the worst mortality rates of any industrialized nation. For the first time in modern history, our children are at risk for having a shorter lifespan than previous generations. Here’s the good news: you can improve those odds with simple steps. It’s not about getting thin. It’s not about climbing mountains. It is about getting started…one small step at a time. Host Jillian Michael’s role as motivator and fitness role model stems from her own personal journey for wellness. In addition to her role on The Biggest Loser, Jillian has produced a series of workout videos, many of which can be seen in Gaiam TV’s Fitness Studio.
