Skimm'd from the Couch with Jillian Michaels

Jan 23, 2019

New Year ... new Skimm’d from the Couch. We’re starting off the year with the queen of motivation, Jillian Michaels. You might remember Jillian as a trainer on the hit NBC show, “The Biggest Loser,” or from her fitness DVDs. But you might not know that she has also built a wellness empire, including an exercise streaming platform and an award-winning fitness app. Jillian’s also a best-selling author and has brand-new book: “The 6 Keys: Unlock Your Genetic Potential for Ageless Strength, Health, and Beauty.”*

On the couch, she talks to us about how she motivates herself, leading by example, and making long-term resolutions ... that you can actually keep.

By the way … if you’ve been following theSkimm, you know we’re all about books. So we decided to start telling you about some of the books that have helped us build theSkimm. This week: “The Messy Middle,” by our friend and mentor Scott Belsky.* Jillian all about goal setting, and so is "The Messy Middle" – it's all about how startups can succeed in the long term. Get it here.

See you back here next week. And in the meantime, rate us, review us, and subscribe to Skimm’d from the Couch on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
