WCW: Jillian Michaels

b7ece3b556b5436f592ba8d0ccab023a Jillian Michaels, for me, is up there with Tina Fey and Beyonce. She is brilliant, inspiring, has a fantastic personal brand, and is the perfect balance of positivity and ass-kickery. She’s got sass for everything. When you need to be reminded why you’re working out:

When you start thinking “oh this will be easy…” giphy-6 When you dig up every excuse in your arsenal to get out of squats…giphy-10 When there’s just… a few… more…giphy-11 I only have one of her DVDs (the 30 Day Shred), but definitely plan on getting more. Just restarted the 30 Day Shred yesterday and think I might try to keep it up during the Whole Life Challenge! jillian-michaels-700

Carly Rowena might be my favorite fitness YouTubber out there. First off, she is a great version of a strong, healthy body, so you know she practices what she preaches. I mean, just look at this.

No fuckin’ joke, people. She’s a beast, but a totally achievable beast, which is great inspiration! Her channel includes a bit of everything, from workouts to fitness essentials to tackling any/all topics regarding health. Her videos are high quality and her form is perfect- even videos where she just talks to the camera are entertaining because she has the cutest british accent! Here’s her TMI tag. Watch it and tell me she isn’t the sassiest, cutest chick you want to be best friends with. Come on. 

And here’s one of her “one song workouts” that you should do right now. Come on, let’s do it together. Remember that photo of her abs? Here we go! 

So follow her on YouTube, Instagram, and on her blog for daily inspiration and real talk. Highly recommend!
