Jillian Michaels Slammed By Former Biggest Loser Trainer

September 12, 2013 01:00 PM by Lisa Princ

Jillian Michaels will be back on our televisions before we know it as the new season of The Biggest Loser is right around the corner. But according to one former trainer, Michaels may not be in good enough shape herself to train anyone else. That’s right, Jillian was slammed bigtime recently by a former trainer of the show after she failed to impress at a triathalon!

At the Malibu Triathalon last weekend, The Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels did not do so well. In fact, the mother of two even admitted to TMZ that she got beat by a bunch of folks that she shouldn’t have, including an 80-year-old! So, what exactly went wrong? Perhaps Jillian had her mind on other things, such as her children? She didn’t clarify, but another former show trainer is speaking out.

Cara Castronuova, one of the trainers brought in while Jillian Michaels took a break from the show, has a few things to say about Jillian’s awful performance at the race. Calling Jillian an “embarrassment,” Castronuova went on to tell TMZ: “That’s what happens a lot with people that think they’re in really good shape. They take things lightly and then they embarrass themselves.”

But that wasn’t all Cara had to say, as she went on to add: “I would probably kill myself if that happened to me.” Okay, so we wouldn’t go that far, but Jillian definitely should have taken the race seriously, especially since she is a trainer on television who many look up to.

What do you think of Cara’s comments about Jillian Michaels? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it! Sound off in the comments section and let us know!

    She should shout her mouth and don’t say anything she doesn’t know. Everyone have a bad day si instead of looking at other performances, Cara should focus on other things.

    A lot to triathletes panic in the open water. I swam all winter and when the tri came I did panic in the open water even ones who have done them several times.

    Really…Cara should be quiet and show some professionalism. Everyone has a bad day from time to time…and if Jillian was off so be it. That does not take away from her expertise or knowledge as a trainer. Jillian still rocks and Cara showed herself….

    How about Cara Castronuova and Julian Micheals set up a winner take all competition. Whoever loses has to run a 26 mile marathon in a decent time for being the most unfit.

    The commentary was quite harsh and I think she only made herself look bad by being so dramatic. Jealousy??? Sad how grown women her age will anything to make sure they get in some digs. Men don’t stoop this low. No wonder is a struggle for many women to get ahead in this male dominated world, when so many still act like children.

    Wow. As a runner myself..most days I can go out and run with no problem. But there are also days when I feel like I’ve got cement in my shoes and can’t pick up my feet. And yes, that has happened on race day. Give Jillian a break.

    C’mon…she’s human. That she screwed up during a triathlon? Makes me adore her all the more! Go Jillian! :)

    Cara’s comment was a little ridiculous. But as high profile personal trainer, Jillian should have known better, as well. She was woefully unprepared and should be embarrassed. Former contestants from Biggest Loser have had better results than that. She ran only 4 miles (nothing for someone in supposedly top physical condition) and did it in 47 minutes !?! That’s a disaster no matter how you cut it. She also said she had never used a wetsuit and couldn’t swim in it because it made her float..ah..yah, thats what they do! Then she had problems on the bike. Did she prepare at all? It was only a spring distance triathlon. That is a short distance, for those who think she did an Ironman or something! She was unprepared, and her arrogance showed through. She came in last among female celebrities. After all the yelling and screaming she does at people when they don’t measure up, I would have loved to have been there to yell at her as she ‘walked’ by on the run. I was a fan, but now I think she is a fraud, to be honest. If she knew ANYTHING about fitness, she would have known to train.

    “I would probably kill myself” Seriously??? Well comments like that are probably why she’s no longer on a show that’s suppose to be positive and promotes forgiving yourself for your mistakes… Guessing that’s why she’s off the show and Jillian is back??

    Sounds like she’s jealous. I’m with Bren keep your mouth shut. Anyone can have a bad day.

    Jealousy is sad. A million things could have happened. To say that she would have killed herslef? Seriously, grow up.

    Petty jealousy. Jillian has even admitted in her radio show that running is not her favorite activity and she trained in a pool. Completely different circumstances. At least she got out there and tried!
