They get advice from America’s most renowned personal trainer Jillian Michaels, who can be your personal trainer, too, with her new My Fitness app. We also share our own list of shortcuts to a healthier you.


  • Josh is getting married! He chats with Michaels about the My Fitness app and how he plans to complete its Wedding Warrior program before the big day.
  • Michaels shares tips to keep working toward your goals, fitness or otherwise:
    • Make sure it’s a change you really want to make.
    • Establish your why.
    • Have an emotional connection to the end result.
    • Seek expert advice before you get started.
    • Make sure your action plan caters to your lifestyle. Be realistic!
  • Plus, Michaels shares what she has learned about motivation while working in the fitness industry:
    • Motivation is intrinsic, inspiration extrinsic.
      • “Being a good source of inspiration is by walking the walk as well as talking the talk. Leading by example. In truth, that’s going to be the most effective way that you can motivate people, is allowing them to see.”
  • Finally, Shelby and Josh share a few of our own health hacks for 2018.


Favorite quote from this episode:

“A lot of behaviors associated with change or transformation… are going to require work and sacrifice on your part…. If you have the why, you can tolerate the how. Work with purpose is passion; work without purpose is punishing.”
