A long time fan of the Biggest Loser, you can only imagine my excitement about having a chance to attend the Jillian Michaels Maximize Your Life tour here in Denver.
I also got to attend it with these two lovely ladies. Lauren and I had planned to attend the show together. When I found out Crystal was coming into town, I invited her to join us as well!
Jillian chose Denver to be the first stop on her tour… and I’m so glad she did! The show was held at the lovely Paramount Theater. It’s a smaller venue, just off the famous 16th Street Mall in Denver, and has the most beautiful marquis.
Jillian took the stage, and spoke for about 2 hours. The topic being near and dear to me, it really felt like about 30 minutes… She was eloquent at times, funny in moments, overall very entertaining, and… well… foul-mouthed! Leave the kids at home and take good notes!
So… what did she talk about? She talked about Biggest Loser, she spoke about losing weight, and mostly, she offered tips reminded me of why I do what I do, and why I’ve been working so hard for the past three years. I’m going to share with you today the moments that resonated with me. While I took a load of notes, there were a few things that really really stood out to me. That caused me pause.
About Being Overweight
About Why You’re Good Enough
About Finding Your Why
This is when the sirens went off… and the bells rang.
About Ending the Fear
We all know that it is often fear that holds us back from greatness… and Jillian reminded us of this, challenging us to take hold of our dreams and honor our why.
