The Biggest Loser trainer, who looks equally as fit on the cover in a gray tank and red bikini bottoms, revealed she feels better about herself now in her 40s than she did in her 20s.


"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,” the 40-year-old told the mag.

Michaels regularly hits the gym to stay in shape, but she adds, it's important for woman to be strong for their overall confidence.

"It’s important for women to have overall strength, because when you feel physically powerful, it transcends into every facet of your life,” she said.

The mom to daughter Lukensia, 4, and son Phoenix, 2 (with partner Heidi Rhoades) added despite looking every inch of perfection to us, she still has some imperfections.

"Do I want to have a better butt? Sure, but I’m healthy and can wear my skinny jeans," Michaels said, "And that's good enough!"
