GoodLife Fitness partners with Jillian Michaels to launch JILLIAN MICHAELS BODYSHRED™

Exclusively at GoodLife Fitness in Canada

TORONTO, Feb. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - GoodLife Fitness, the largest fitness company in Canada and a world-wide leader in Group Exercise, has partnered with Jillian Michaels, one of the premier health and wellness experts in the world and standout wellness coach on NBC's The Biggest Loser, to launch JILLIAN MICHAELS BODYSHRED™, a high-intensity and endurance based 30 minute workout. Jillian's progressive and effective workout helps participants shed fat, define muscle and dramatically enhance their athletic performance while transforming their physique.

JILLIAN MICHAELS BODYSHRED™ launches exclusively in Canada at GoodLife Fitness in February of 2013 and will be offered at GoodLife Clubs nation-wide by the end of 2014.

"I'm so excited to launch my BODYSHRED class at GoodLife Fitness," said Michaels.  "My classes are fun, fast-paced 30-minute workouts that offer a scientific, metabolic training approach to achieve a strong, sexy body. It's a powerful integration of cutting edge fitness techniques that evolves traditional exercise methods through the exploration of movement possibilities and strategies to help participants get in the sickest shape possible, at an accelerated pace."

JILLIAN MICHAELS BODYSHRED™ utilizes Jillian's 3-2-1 interval approach to whole body circuit training which includes 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs. This class provides the ultimate challenge regardless of fitness level and integrates the most progressive exercise science techniques to deliver a class that focuses on full body, dynamic metabolic training so you continue to burn calories and fat long after you finish training.

"I've been fortunate enough to work with some of the brightest and most inspiring people in the fitness industry and I'm happy to say, Jillian Michaels is one of those people," said Maureen "Mo" Hagan, internationally renowned fitness professional and Vice President with GoodLife Fitness. "I've been a fan of her work and proven ability to transform the lives of people with a no-nonsense, yet compassionate, training approach.  Using this same approach, JILLIAN MICHAELS BODYSHRED™ provides users with intelligent, high-intensity training that maximizes results - that is why GoodLife Fitness is proud to be the exclusive provider of JILLIAN MICHAELS BODYSHRED™ in Canada!"
