Those of you who read the Telegraph on Sunday may have read the article in the magazine on celebrity personal trainers in LA and how they have become as important as publicists, lawyers and managers to many A-listers. It also went on to discuss the history of personal training and the rise of personal trainers from those who trained Charlton Heston in Ben Hur through the emergence of trainers at muscle beach in LA right up to the modern day and the popularity of personal trainers. One of the most interesting bits of the piece was that the backlash to the excesses of the 60’s and 70’s was that in the 80’s it became socially acceptable to have a buff body and to be seen to be working towards this goal, as seen in the rise of starts like Jane Fonda and her fitness videos.
The moral of the story here is that if it works for the stars it can really work for you too, particularly as we don’t charge celebrity rates at Diets Don’t Work. Nearly all the training and nutritional methods we use are identical to those Hollywood A-list trainers, and as Halle Berry will confess, with a bit of hard work and sensible eating it really does work! If you get the chance read the article or have a look for it on the Telegraph web site.
