Yahoo News - about 3 years
By Dorene Internicola NEW YORK (Reuters) - As Jillian Michaels, the tough-love trainer on NBC's hit reality show "The Biggest Loser," lunges towards her middle years she infuses her fitness routine with the same take-no-prisoners mindset that impels her TV contestants to shape up. "I‘m trying to get into the best shape of my life for 40," Michaels said in an interview in New York while demonstrating a workout designed for Curves, the global chain of women's fitness centers. "I don't lock into one type of exercise," said Michaels, adding the workouts she creates focus on flexibility, balance, core stabilization, power, speed and agility. Dr. Michele Olson, of the American College of Sports Medicine, agrees with the 10 percent rule as a general means of adjusting exercise intensity or length in order to gain improvements at a reasonable rate.
