“Unless you puke, faint or die, keep going”

"Unless you puke, faint or die, keep going” is a saying that has been printed on many posters. The line was said by personal trainer Jillian Michaels on NBC’s reality show The Biggest Loser, airing on January 7, 2010:

Bob: I know it hurts, but I’m saving your life right now.
Jillian: Unless you faint, puke or die… keep walking!


The last word of “walking” has often been replaced by “going” when the saying is printed on many gift items.

“Unless you puke, faint, or die, keep walking!” celebrity personal trainer Jillian Michaels exhorted power-walking Biggest Loser contestants in the season 6 premiere.
