Celebrity Personal Trainers
Celebrities lead enviable lives in many ways. Their fame, glamour, and often super toned bods have been subject to paparazzi and public scrutiny. However, these celebrity bodies are not shaped by magic nor do they happen overnight. There is a whole community of celebrity personal trainers who work with A-list celebrities to help them perfect their health and fitness routines.
DON-A-MATRIX TRAINING or, DMT, is one of the fastest growing training companies in the Los Angeles area. The most famous clients of DMT? None other than the Kardashian clan. Nearly all of the Kardashians have gushed about DMT. Kourtney Kardashian has been especially high in her praise of head trainer, Don Brooks, for getting her body back post-baby. The workout methods used by Brooks include high intensity movements that are all done in a short amount of time, to boost metabolism. Some favorite moves of Brooks include a plank that adds in cardio by opening and closing the legs through a scissor jump over the course of a minute or so. Don Brooks has also trained Fergie, which is how the Kardashians got word of his celebrity personal trainers and programs.
Another one of the notable celebrity personal trainers of today, Rob Piela actually owns his own gym in New York City, Gotham Gym.
