Took a Long Break From Working Out? Here's Jillian Michaels's Advice For Getting Back in Shape

Although Jillian Michaels earned her reputation as the tough-love trainer on The Biggest Loser, the super-fit trainer, who has her own fitness app called My Fitness by Jillian Michaels, understands that some people may not be experts like she is when it comes to working out. Whether you have taken a long break from working out or are eager to start your own fitness journey from scratch, Jillian has some advice for you.

"Take it slow," she told POPSUGAR. "Make sure you have the proper form for each exercise."

If you aren't sure what the proper form should be, it may be wise to start working out with a personal trainer at first who can help you with form and ensure you complete each exercise correctly. If a personal trainer isn't within your budget, be sure to look up each exercise online before attempting. Videos and GIFs, like the ones on POPSUGAR Fitness, will be helpful to guide your next workout and be sure you are doing it properly.

And it's not just form that's key; Jillian wants to be sure that everyone has the proper gear, such as appropriate footwear and clothing, to avoid shin splints and blisters.

So don't be intimidated — get back in the gym, nail your form, and crush your workout!
