by at . Comments

The Biggest Loser isn't simply returning with new episodes in January. It's bringing back an former favorite and focusing on an issue that plagues the nation.

That's right, Jillian Michaels - who exited the NBC competition in 2011 in order to focus on her new family - will once again be the head trainer next year, but this time she will be barking orders at a cast of 13-17-year olds, as The Biggest Loser tackles the issue of childhood obesity.

Cue that fist pump, Michelle Obama!

Michaels will join trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince on a season that will feature three teams, each comprised of adults and one teen. The younger contestants will play a role in the success of their squads, but will not be eligible for elimination.

“As a former overweight teen, I know firsthand how dramatically weight issues can affect every aspect of a child’s life,” said Michaels. ”Having recently become a mother of two, I am more passionate than ever about helping empower children and families with the information and resources they need to live a healthier life.”

Try Shadow boxing. No need to be standing just make sure you have a clear space in front of you and around your upper body. You can even sit on the end of the bed to do it. :D
