★FitStars: An Interview with Jackie Warner and FBG’s First Podcast!

When I think of Jackie Warner, I think two words: bad ass. With her own reality TV show, a take-no-ish attitude and killer abs (see right), she is a force to be reckoned with. That’s why, when I had the opportunity to interview her on the phone from her personal training studio Sky Sport Spa in LA, I was a tad, okay, really, nervous. But, thankfully, after a few questions, Jackie made it seem like she was just another gal, albeit a gal with a ridiculous amount of fitness knowledge, a strong passion for helping people get healthy and ah-mazing abs (again, see right). No wonder so many fit girls and boys have crushes on her. (As you’ll hear in the interview below, I fall victim, too, as I pretty much kiss her arse.)

A word of caution before you listen…this is the FBGs’first attempt at doing a podcast, and, obviously, we have a lot to learn. I have enough “ums” to drive any sane person crazy, and I really should learn to slow down and breathe when speaking. Thankfully, for you, Jackie does most of the talking.

I really can’t wait to read Jackie’s new book and review her next DVD (because we loved this one). I also have my fingers crossed for another season of Workout on Bravo TV. And, as promised from the interview, Jackie’s next SkyLab event will be held June 6-13. For more details, click here.It’s always refreshing when a celeb seems the same on camera as off camera. From my perspective, Jackie really is just like she is on TV—tough, charming and smart. Wouldn’t you agree? —Jenn

    FABULOUS interview!!!! I love Jackie and workout- they haveeeeeeeee to bring it back for another season. It would be a dream to get a session in with her- wouldn’t it? Thank you so much for doing this.

    I’ll have to listen when I get home from work, but I have to comment on the show Workout…I flippin love it!!! She is seriously a badass!

    I tried to watch Workout in its first season but I didn’t like the romantic element. I turned the show off but I can still appreciate Jackie’s fitness awesome-ness. She really knows her stuff. I’ll listen in when I get home.

    Great interview! I think you sound great– do more like this. (Also, oh my gosh, SHE doesn’t like to watch herself on camera??? What is this world coming to? If I were her I would gaze at myself in admiration all day long.)

    Jackie Warner’s show is THE best show to watch during any kind of workout (if one must watch a show to pass the time sometimes…). Maybe not their dramatic lives so much, but certainly their bodies are quite the inspiration. Thanks for doing the interview!!

    I have watched all the seasons of Jackie’s show. They all are in great shape. I wish they would show more of the workout part of it so I can pick up new moves but I do understand that the show is not just about that.

    Thx!

    Love the interview! And the blog! I’m so happy I came across it! I recently started a blog myself, I hope you check it out!!

    Congrats on the new podcast! I loved it. I agree…Jackie is fantastic. She also has some of her workouts on Exercise on Demand on Time Warner Cable and Comcast. Her lower body exercises rid me of my junk in the trunk.

    Great interview!

    I too hope there is another season of Workout.

    and if Jackie needs anyone to come and test out her week of Skylab, please give her my number! :)

    I, too, have total respect for Jackie’s success and her knowledge of fitness, and it’s fun to recognize some of her trainers on commercials and infomercials, but I don’t need to sit in on her therapy sessions or her makeout sessions. Can’t wait for another season.
