Today we’re giving a shout out to Jillian Michaels’ Maximize Your Life Tour, which hits Denver’s Paramount Theater on Tuesday, March 11. Michaels, of course, catapulted to fame several years ago as the unforgiving trainer on NBC’s The Biggest Loser. Although fitness is her claim to fame – she has motivated dozens of Loser contestants through remarkable physical transformations – her true passion is life coaching.
Overweight as a child, Michaels was the victim of cruel bullying from junior high classmates. Until, that is, she developed an interest in martial arts, which not only helped her get fit – ahem, check out those biceps – but also helped her acquire confidence and self-respect. Now a best-selling author and Daytime Emmy nominee, Michaels is doing what she loves to do most – empowering people to harness their potentials, accomplish their goals, and live exceptional lives.
Michaels’ Maximize Your Life Tour is sponsored by Popchips™ ”, a lower calorie and healthier alternative to regular chips. Popchips are a family of delicious potato, tortilla, popcorn, and veggie chips that are popped, instead of fried or baked. Popchips are available in over 15 flavors – including Chili Lime and Salsa. But we did an informal post-workout taste-test the other day and our favorites – in order – were Original, Sweet Potato, and Ranch.
Now, we all have our cravings. For some, it’s sugary sweets – but for us, it’s salty, crunchy carbs (please don’t tell Jillian – she might make us drop and give her 10). But if you’re going to eat chips, Popchips are the way to go, with half the fat of regular chips, and none of the transfats, cholesterol, additives, and gluten that make snacking so unhealthy.
