Life is hectic — that's not changing, but if you want your body to transform, you can't skip working out. The celebrity trainer — and Redbook cover star — advocates four half-hour exercise sessions per week, but when you're really pressed, this full-body routine she developed exclusively for Redbook will keep you on track. To get the most out of it, make sure you're moving at optimal intensity. To figure out your sweet spot: Subtract your age from and multiply that number by 0.
This minute routine from Jillian Michaels includes strength moves, super important core work , and heart-rate-revving plyometrics. Aim to do it five times a week. Here's how:Warm up for 3 minutes by jogging in place or jumping rope. Then, do circuits 1 and 2 twice through. Cool down with 3 minutes of low-intensity moves such as arm circles, toe taps, and walking lunges.
Her life certainly has changed in a big way. And Jillian is dreaming big. Do more of what you love.

I pour candle wax on my food at restaurants," Jillian admitted.
