‘Loser’ trainer looks for families for her new show
Kimberly Hayes Taylor / Detroit News Health Writer
Imagine how much weight you would shed if Jillian Michaels, the tough-as-nails fitness trainer and wellness expert on NBC’s “Biggest Loser,” lived in your house for a week. She’d not only tell you when and what to eat, she’d whip your body into shape as well.
It’s not such a far-fetched notion. Michaels will star in a new eight-episode NBC television show for 2010, “Losing It With Jillian,” when she invades the home of a different family every week to give them her own brand of tough love, and fitness and nutrition transformation. The show is looking for Michigan families to star on it, and a casting call is being held Dec. 8 and 9 at Gardner-White Furniture in Macomb Township.
“When your health is out of balance, everything else suffers — finances, relationships, work and family dynamics,” Michaels says in a release. “I’m moving in with families across the country, getting down and dirty and rooting out bad habits in every corner of their lives that are preventing them from health and happiness. Get ready America, because I’m heading out and you never know, I might just end up on your doorstep, so watch out.”
Helen Phillips is the Season 7 winner from Sterling Heights who reduced from 257 pounds to 117 during the course of the show. She says Michaels will prove to be a blessing for any family, even if she remains with them only for a day or two.
“She would be able to restructure the whole family,” says Phillips, who ended up working out with Michaels after losing a challenge on the show and is now traveling the country helping others to become big losers. “She will get to the emotional part of the overeating as well, and bring them closer together as a family unit.”
Michaels will continue to work with “Biggest Loser” contestants too.
Ann Arbor’s Pete Thomas, the At Home Season 2 winner who took away a $100,000 prize after losing the most weight after being eliminated from the show, also will never forget the lessons Michaels taught him. He shed 85 pounds on the show in seven weeks, and then went home and lost another 102 pounds with Michaels’ instructions. In nine months, he shed a total of 185 pounds — and has kept it off.
Thomas says he admires Michaels because she once weighed 180 pounds as a teen. As a result, she developed a gift of getting to the core of what drives a person to abuse food and helps them overcome that.
“We had a food addiction, and food addiction had a root. That’s what Jillian helped to deal with,” says Thomas, who now coaches and trains people on fitness on wellness and offers free weight-loss tips on his Web site, www.winningman.com.
“It really is going to be a gift from God to have her come into someone’s home.”
