Action Heroine: Jessica Biel

By Patty Adams Martinez

She's been in plenty of adventure movies, but Jessica Biel's favorite role is the take-action crusader she plays off-screen. "I feel it's important to stand up for what you believe in," the actress has said. Biel has hosted and participated in Revlon Run/Walks for breast and ovarian cancer (her grandmother is a breast cancer survivor), and she's also a defender of the environment. Biel made headlines last January by climbing Kilimanjaro to raise awareness of the global water crisis. She credits her love of exercise to her childhood in Boulder, Colorado. "For me, being athletic and active is a way of life," she says. No surprise, then, that Biel has set her sights on climbing to one of the base camps on Mount Everest. As she puts it, "I would encourage anyone who has a voice to get behind something that makes sense for them."

Giving any kind of Fitness industry award to Jillian Michael is an outrage to the entire industry. Her limited knowledge in numerous aspects of fitness are legendary. Her certifications are suspect. Her pulling a seat off a Spinning bike while somebody was riding as well as her kettlebell video is a legendary FAIL.
