VIDEO: Jillian Michaels Takes Veterans and Military Families Back to Boot Camp

There's no doubt that military veterans have pulled off plenty of heroic feats during their careers. So, Jillian Michaels was ready to give them a new challenge: completing one of her legendary workouts.

When this superstar trainer brought her signature exercise routine to the deck of the USS Midway for an event we threw with Blue Star Families, the 250 military families on board could definitely hang. Watch the video to check out the epic workout they endured, and to learn more about our game-changing partnership with this important organization.

Blue Star Families is dedicated to ensuring military veterans, active-duty soldiers, and their families have the means to live the healthiest lives possible. In celebration of Veteran's Day, we're continuing to honor these real-life heroes across the country with our donation of 50,000 Thrive Market memberships through Blue Star Families.

Hear it straight from the mouth of Amanda Yeram, a lifelong military brat, veteran, and military spouse (now that's hardcore): "Military families live a very active lifestyle, which often leads us to shopping for convenience, going through a drive-thru, or finding something in our cupboards that we can throw together last minute. I love Thrive because no matter where we are—in a rural area or in a big city—I can shop for it online and have it delivered right to my door, and it makes it easier for me to throw something together with a healthy option, rather than a convenient option."

But our mission to help make it easier for military veterans and families to thrive doesn't end with Blue Star. We want to help support as many individuals and families as possible. If you, a friend, or family member have served in the military, please apply for a free membership here. It's the least we can do for veterans' brave and honorable service to our country.
