Miami, FL – Jillian Michaels, America’s favorite trainer, has teamed with Midwest MANIA to give fitness professionals in Chicago an opportunity to become a certified Jillian Michaels BODYSHRED instructor.  Available in fitness centers nationwide, BODYSHRED is a nonstop, high-intensity, resistance and endurance-based 30-minute group exercise class.

The Jillian Michaels BODYSHRED Certification Workshop will be held on Sunday, September 27 at The Westin O’Hare Hotel (6100 North River Road, Rosemont, Illinois 60018) during Midwest MANIA (September 25-27).

During an all-day class, fitness instructors will learn Michaels’ BODYSHRED Program, her 3-2-1 system, motivational and teaching style, and more to keep classes positive, upbeat and packed to capacity. Each BODYSHRED workout follows Michaels’ “3-2-1” interval format, which includes 3 minutes of strength training, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of core work.


Jillian Michaels BODYSHRED is something fresh for both fitness centers and their members who want the latest, most talked-about workout classes. In true Jillian Michaels style, every BODYSHRED workout is a challenge from start to finish and hits every muscle in the body.  With each class lasting just 30 minutes, it’s a quick, results oriented, whole body workout.

Highlighting the personality of the instructors, those teaching can choose from more than 250 movements and exercises to create unique and dynamic classes. Plus, beginners to advanced fitness enthusiasts can modify the exercises so each workout is challenging and there are no plateaus to reach.
