This spring, celebrity health and wellness expert and former “The Biggest Loser” co-trainer Jillian Michaels is bringing her larger-than-life personality and brand of conditioning to US service men and women serving abroad as part of a USO tour of the Middle East.
Michaels will be joined on the first-ever celebrity fitness-focused entertainment tour by fellow fitness guru Marco Borges and actress and media personality Celines Toribio for visits to bases that will combine handshakes, chats and photo opportunities with 60-minute, boot camp-style workouts and instructional sessions.
Michaels revealed last December that NBC’s 11th and most recent season of “The Biggest Loser” would be her last. Michaels then announced last May that she would begin work on the syndicated show, “The Doctors,” joining a panel of experts that will discuss a wide array of health and wellness topics. She also will be doing occasional appearances on “Dr. Phil.”
Borges is an exercise physiologist who has been published in several newspapers and periodicals across the country and has trained such stars as Jay-Z and Pharell while appearing on shows like “Oprah” and “Ellen.”
Toribio was voted in 2008 as one of the “50 Mas Bellos” (Most Beautiful) people by readers of “People en Espanol” and has appeared on ESPN Deportes.
Toribio serves as the Hispanic spokeswoman for the Jillian Michaels wellness brand and also founded The Celines Toribio Academy of Art and Communication in the Bronx borough of New York City for the study of acting, dance and modeling.
