Jillian Michaels Poses Nude at 40 & OMG Those Abs! (PHOTO)

Shape MagazineBiggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels is known for helping other people achieve their perfect bodies, but, as we all know, she is sporting one of her own as well. And in the July/August issue of Shape Magazine, she gets to showcase every inch of it.

Michael's posed nude for the magazine showing how a well-muscled and tanned body looks at 40. It's every bit as amazing as you would imagine.

Michaels tells the magazine:

My abs are the best part of my body. I know I'm lucky because when I'm in decent shape overall they tend to get toned very quickly.

Yep. Lucky, indeed. She says she does planks including side, extended and imbalanced planks to achieve those ripped abs, but come on. I could do those all days and STILL not look like that. Some of it is genetic. Reality check.

For most of us, the years after age 30 are a gradual down-slide. No matter how fit we are, keeping in shape becomes more and more difficult. My own thighs look nothing like they did at 27 and I run 25+ miles a week. It's a sad state of affairs. But good for Michaels. She looks amazing. Rock it, sister.

On aging, Michaels said:

When I think back on my 20s and 30s, I look better now than I ever have. Yes, I’m older but I’m also wiser and that’s a more intrinsic type of beauty.

She's so right. But the rest of us? Don't look like her. Still, she's giving us all something to aspire to. Sure, we don't have all day to work out in the gym and it's not our career, but 40 has never looked so good.

This is a woman who is not a Playboy centerfold. She is strong and capable and gives sexy a new name. Bonus: She says her inspiration for being strong is her children. May we all think that way.

When our kids see us taking care of ourselves, they value themselves more, too. It's a win all around. Go Jillian! She makes four decades look stunning.

Would you ever pose nude at 40?
