As all Apple Watch wearers stay at home more than usual during the shelter-in-place and lockdowns in their counties and countries, all the gyms are closed and many of us are sitting on the couch, working at home, watching tv and sleeping in. Without the gym, many Apple Watch wearers could not find a way to stay active at home, especially if the park is crowded at certain times. Luckily, there is an awesome trainer that was featured in the first 15 seasons of the TV show “The Biggest Loser” and is based off in Los Angeles.

That is right, it is one of the famous fitness trainers, whose name is Jillian Michaels. Michaels has developed her own fitness app for all iPhone users and Apple Watch wearers, including her own series of DVDs consisting of prerecorded fitness videos. During this unprecedented period, there are many tips for iPhone users and Apple Watch wearers to stay fit with Jillian, plus a free 1-month trial for Michaels’ app.

The “My Fitness” App by Jillian Michaels 

Michaels’ My Fitness app is available on a subscription price for iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch with monthly rates of $15 per month and $70 yearly subscription. These prices are a bit pricier than Apple Music or owning a few discs of Jillian DVDs, but users can access all of her videos including the ones from the DVD series across their Apple devices at home and beyond. iPhone users can also access healthy recipes and track their meals through the app, which is included with the subscription. This is an ideal way to close those Activity rings and eat right without needing to buy every DVD or carrying along with a laptop to steam Jillian videos in the park.

There are also a lot of videos exclusively on the app, including free 7-minute workouts performed by Michaels that users can not find in her DVDs. A one-week trial is also available before purchasing the actual subscription, which allows users to try out the app and cancel it if they are not satisfied with the Jillian Michaels app. In addition, the app offers HealthKit and Apple Watch integration to update the Activity data on Apple Watch without the need for Apple’s stock Workout app and log in the number of calories burned to the steps the user takes. The 7-minute workout videos are targeted to train different parts of the body, but to access other videos and features including the DVD library from all of Jillian’s DVD series, a subscription is required.

Other than the overview of the app, there is also a free offer from a US carrier for a free trial for a month instead of a week. T-Mobile is offering a free 1-month trial to its network users on Tuesday 21 April. The offer is in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app from the carrier and iPhone users on the T-Mobile networks can redeem the offer and get access to the Jillian Michaels app during the shelter-in-place orders. Please note that all network users can not redeem the offer without the Jillian app installed (registration required) and they can not redeem the reward if they are on T-Mobile’s prepaid network, Metro. This is an opportunity for iPhone and iPad users to work out with Michaels and cook up a healthy meal without paying a hefty price during the pandemic.

Watch Jillian’s DVDs on Home TV, DVD Player or Mac 

If it is not worth the money to pay $15 every month or $70 every year for a fitness app, then buying Jillian Michaels DVDs are a more budget option and for those who are not used to fitness apps on iOS devices or prefer to use the traditional Workout app on Apple Watch. This method requires a TV with a DVD player, a large iMac with an external DVD drive or a MacBook including a yoga mat and a set of weights. Michaels’ prerecorded workout videos on her DVDs since 2008 consists of videos ranging from different types of exercises and difficulty levels. These include yoga, core, and upper/lower body training, cardio and strength fitness. The videos vary from 20 minutes to half an hour per video, with the longest videos on 45 minutes each on the intensely fast “Extreme Shed and Shred” and “Hard Body” videos. Michaels also has a 2-DVD miniseries of all of her exercises in “10 Minute Body Transformation”, which she instructs users to a variety of 5 different workouts per DVD, which includes HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), Animal Style, Core, Yoga and much more workouts in only 10 minutes (plus 6 minutes of warmups and cool-down stretches) per video. Users can choose their own DVDs based on their preferences and offer themselves a little bit of flexibility to their schedule.

If doing the workouts on an iMac, Apple Cinema Display or MacBook, then a DVD drive or a SuperDrive with a USB-C cable and USB-C to USB-A dongle is required to play the videos. Make sure to mount the Apple display or MacBook is on a stable surface and keep all of the cables and DVD drives, including extra furniture away from the workout area.

A few Jillian Michaels DVDs such as Ripped in 30 and 30 Day Shred offers specific meal plans that can be accessed on Michaels’ website by entering the link on the back of the DVD case, but the plans are completely different from the actual Jillian app. All of the Jillian Michaels DVDs are available on Amazon from $3-10 depending on the seller and the number of discs, but these DVDs can also be sold at a lower price at a local dollar store for under $5 each. Jillian Michaels app subscriptions also provide all of Michaels’ DVD videos from the whole series in the My Fitness app, with purchase of the subscription.

Tune In to Michaels’ Live-Streamed Workout Sessions On Her Social Media Accounts

For a limited time during the stay-at-home orders, Michaels is also live-streaming workout sessions for free, at 10:30 am PDT Sunday on her Instagram page. She will provide the live-streams every Sunday morning until the US lockdowns wean off in a couple of weeks. Again, these workouts only need an iPhone, Mac or iPad, Internet connectivity, an Instagram account, a set of dumbbells and a yoga mat. Michaels is providing fitness and dietary tips and short videos of workouts on her YouTube channel, which iPhone users can subscribe to for free workouts from her, including the central things that users can improve when performing Jillian Michaels workouts and living a healthy life.

To surmise, these are the three ways that all Apple Watch wearers and iPhone users can workout during the coronavirus outbreak, by exercising with the famous fitness trainer Michaels while at home. Michaels is keeping the communities around the nation and everywhere else healthy and active by providing free 7-minute fitness videos in her own app and virtual, live-streamed workouts every Sunday morning, which helps people boost their immune systems, stay fit and stay strong during this treacherous time. The My Fitness app from Michaels is free to download from the App Store and is featured in most of the curated home workout and health apps in the iOS App Store. All iPhone users can sync their HealthKit and Activity data on the app and access Jillian Michaels's workouts from her DVDs, Sunday live-streams and the app. Curb the homesickness and get off the couch with Michaels, for at least 30 minutes a day.
