So I had a blast yesterday. I headed up to NYC with MWS Writer Zareen to meet Jillian Michaels (The Biggest Loser, 30-Day Shred) and see a debut of her soon-t0-release Wii game, Fitness Ultimatum 2010. It’s not yet available for purchase (you can pre-order on Amazon) - but it will be available next month and I have to say it looks pretty cool.
We had a chance to test it out and true-to-character, Jillian encourages and yells throughout the game. The game is family friendly - as Jillian demoed the game she encouraged us to have our kids play as well. (In the meantime, check out the 2009 version if you want to get playing now.)
What shocked me the most: how sweet and wonderful Jillian is! I have to admit, I’ve never watched The Biggest Loser but I’ve heard she’s one tough cookie on the show. She was down-to-earch and extremely genuine in person.
Many thanks to Beth from Role Mommy for organizing the event!
