Fit Chic NYC’s Blog


Would you want to train celebrities?

Sorry guys, I’ve been on a bit of a blogging vacation – well an actual vacation that turned into an extended break from blogging – but I’m back and going to dive in with a poll!

Jillian MichaelsOn her Facebook page Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels has said:

Want to clear up some press mistakes. There have been a few articles out saying that I’m training Tara Reid and Nicole Kidman. This is not true. I am interested in the health of regular people. I do not focus my time on “the privileged few”. The only famous person I have agreed to work with is Maria Shriver because …she is a personal mentor of mine and an all around amazing humanitarian.

I want to know, if you were a trainer, would you exclude celebrities from your clientele?
