Jillian Michaels is the latest "celebrity" to fall victim to coronavirus. The once dubbed "Toughest trainer in America" contracted the virus after working out at the gym.
She revealed the diagnosis on Fox Business:
"If you are afraid of COVID, you should not go to the gym. And I actually am a person who let my guard down, I haven't even spoken about this publicly really, and a very close friend of mine gave me COVID several weeks ago. I'm fortunate to have gone into it being healthy and I was able to get on the other side of it pretty quick, but not everybody is lucky, as we all know. All I can tell you is if you are afraid of getting COVID, a public gym is probably a place where you will get it."
Michaels revealed she let her guard down for an hour. She said her friend had no idea that she had Covid.
Jillian Michaels has made a full recovery, and is back to promoting her fitness app.
In the comments section on HuffPost's story about Michaels, many have said that she is saying "avoid gyms" in order to gain more customers for her app. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if that is her angle. She lost my respect when she started shaming people for being overweight (don't forget where you came from, babygirl. You were overweight once yourself!). I spent the majority of my life morbidly obese. I'm a size 4/6 right now. I would be a hypocrite if I shamed someone for their weight. It's bad karma.
Anyways, I'm glad she's doing better. I still don't like her as a person.
