Jillian Michaels has been helping others all over the country on her Maximize Your Life tour, which she described during a call to On Air with Ryan Seacrest as “helping people build a better life and utilizing fitness as a means to empower them in all areas of their reality.”

“It’s a live show where I get an opportunity to have a direct connection with the audience, which is something I love,” Jillian continues.

“And of course we do talk about the bigger picture of  health and wellness and how it transcends into every facet of your life. And subsequently, the exact same tools that you would utilize to turn your health around … the psychological tools of rebuilding your self worth, dramatically enhancing your confidence, understanding why we do things in a destructive fashion, and how to turn them around to make those coping mechanisms life-affirming. It’s really the how-to of building a better life. It’s everything that goes on behind the scenes on The Biggest Loser that you don’t ever get to see on the actual show.”
