Working Out with Jillian Michaels At The Fitness Ultimatum

What new mom doesn't worry about weight loss and getting back in shape? This mom certainly worries about it. So I was glad when Role Mommy invited me to attend Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010 event.

I thought, great, I get to learn how I can get into shape. I'd sit and eat yummy snacks while Jillian tells me all about cool exercise to do at home.

Then I finished reading the email and noticed a part that clearly said we'd get a chance to workout with Jillian. Excuse me? Workout, as in move around? with Jillian?! If you ever seen her on "The Biggest Loser" then you know she's one tough chick.

So instead of instantly replying that I changed my mind since this event requires me to actually move around...I said yes and prayed that I survive this event. Besides my other mom friends would be there and I'm sure they can rescue me in case of any problems.

Once Jillian came on stage my fears were put to rest once. Yes, she's serious when it comes to health and fitness but that's cause she cares. Jillian explained that she saw a need for this alternative type of exercise after learning about the statistics about overweight children and families. She wanted to find a way to motivate families to get healthy as a team.

After explaining the ideas behind her new Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010 game, Jillian then walked us thru it. With the help of a team member we saw first hand how to workout. Jillian showed us how to custom setup the workout to achieve our goals. One of the things that stood out for me is the calendar system that allows you to program routines for a period of up to 6months. For new moms like me that's a very helpful feature since our days to day life can be hectic. If we can plan over a course of months then we can be more motivated. The game has 16 core exercises that include cardio and strength building. Jillians 3D avatar will always train along side you giving audio encouragement and feedback.

After the listening and watching it was time to workout! I of course opted out of that but I have a good excuse. I had to take photos of all my cool mom friends as they worked out. The feedback from the workout moms? The exercise felt good and they can see using the game at home.

After the workout the moms gather around Jillian to say goodbye and thank her for sharing the day with us. She really is very sweet making sure to stop and pose for photos on here way out. Now normally I would have gotten a photo also but I wasn't ready to go face to face with Jillian yet. Let me get thru the Fitness Ultimatum 2010 workout first =)
