Michele's Fitness Story
Ask any of Michele Jaco's college roommates if they know a female who can eat
more than the star quarterback and they'll agree: Michele Jaco! But years of pig-like
behavior finally caught up with her and in 1995 she faced the grim reality: she was
out of shape, lethargic, and downright unhealthy...with a cholesterol reading off the
So began Michele's journey down the road to a healthy and fit lifestyle. What began
with walks around the block turned into a love of running. Michele has been known
to run in rain, snow, ice, fog; on country roads; up and down stairs at her hotel; on
the morning after Halloween picking up lost candy; on beaches; through forests...
and many other places!
Michele in 1995 and 2010
Michele's love of fitness turned professional when she landed the position of regular
fitness host on the Shop at Home Network. In addition to her busy personal training
schedule, she was now filming 20-plus live shows a month. This national recognition
meant one thing for sure: she had to know her stuff. This forced Michele into a
constant search for the latest information on nutrition, exercise routines, and
Michele is certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Fitness Trainer
and Certified Nutrition Specialist.
Fitness Host Turned Author
Michele's journey continues with her new book "Taming the Pig Within: A resource
for those of us with 10-acre appetites". In it Michele pours her 10-plus years of
wellness research and experience into a funny, credible, easy-to-read resource that
she hopes will help those who share her ravenous appetite. On the goals for the
book, Michele elaborates:
"I want people to discover the freedom that I've found
through natural appetite control—and this book is a
peek inside my diet routine and lifestyle habits. It's not
a quick-fix diet plan; it's a "lifestyle makeover" for
those who are often eating a lot of the wrong things
but still hungry."
The book's release date is TBD.
