On top of her own business ventures, her passion for fitness has also landed her in the spotlight a number of times. As previously mentioned, Michaels has created some of her own workout videos. It also helped her earn a spot as a trainer on “The Biggest Loser.”
As one of the original trainers, Michaels has appeared on the show since season one (with a few departures for other business). Jillian has seen some time in the spotlight on other television shows as well. She starred in a Biggest Loser spin-off, “Losing It With Jillian” as well as participated as a member of the panel of “The Doctors.”

Net Worth Break Down
As previously mentioned, Michaels’ net worth sits near $14 million. It is safe to say that the largest driving force behind her wealth has been her part on “The Biggest Loser.” As mentioned above, its helped her land a spin-off series and played a hand in landing her book deals as well.
Michaels earns around $1.2 million annually through her workout videos, television appearances, book sales and other business ventures. Some years, however, she earns much more. For instance, in 2008, she earned $52 million from the sale of her “30 Day Shred” workout video series.
In addition to selling her workout series as DVDs, you can also find Jillian Michaels on YouTube. Although it isn’t a serious revenue stream for the fitness model, YouTube does help her earn a bit of cash throughout the year. Check out this video from her channel below:
She also made extra money from the sale of her home in Malibu (purchased for $6.6 million and sold at $8.8 million). She later settled into a $1.56 million home in the Hollywood Hills. The sale of the home and value of the new one have also contributed to her overall wealth.
In the future, Michaels has no plans of leaving the fitness world. She fully intends on continuing to make workout videos, train and, of course, make money!
