Working Out With Celebrity Trainer Guru – Gunnar Peterson!

Working Out With Celebrity Trainer Guru – Gunnar Peterson!

 

Whoa. I am sore. A workout with one of the best trainers on the planet can do that to you. But we will get to that in a minute. Allow me to explain. Meet Gunnar Peterson. If you know celebrities then you know Gunnar.  Think Jennifer Lopez, Halle Barre, Angelina Jolie, Matthew McConaughey, Ben Affleck, Lucy Liu, Bruce Willis, The Kardashians, Tom Brady, the list goes on and on. So if you know them – then you know the man behind these hot bodies – Mr. Gunnar Peterson.

Yep. He trains the majority of the big players in Hollywood so you can only imagine how thrilled (and giddy!) I was when Propel Zero invited me to a private shoot to work out with the man behind the stars. To learn more about Gunnar watch this video to get more of an idea of this impressive trainer.

Not only did he kick my you know what, but I just love learning a new thing or two (top secret moves too!) – so watch out clients, I am coming to get ya!

The coolest part besides training with one of my favorite mentors in the industry- is that Propel Zero was taking photos the entire workout for a future print campaign for Propel Zero Ads! So keep your eyes out for Moni with pigtails working out hard! It will be running in magazines such as SHAPE, Fitness, Men and Women’s Health, and SELF just to name a few.

My favorite part of the day was just being pushed HARD for once (since I am always the trainer on the other end pushing and motivating my own amazing clients!). Gunnar gave me a few compliments too but really him saying that “you certainly do not do push-ups like a girl- very impressive!” was just awesome- Thanks Gunnar!

Here is the recap in photos:

Gunnar brought his amazing side kick too - who works with top athletes/celebrities as well. He is one of the best trainers I have every meet. (Sorry ladies, Tom Brady did not make the workout.)

    Hi Monica,
    What an amazing experience to get t work with an amazing trainer such as Gunnar!! Was thinking if I had extra money or won the lottery I think that would be the first thing I would do. Hire myself a personal trainer to keep me in top dog shape. As being in shape and exercising are so vital, not to mention how great you feel when you take care of yourself!! Wish I lived in California still, I would ask and look for your assistance in helping to train me!! 🙂 Happy you had an amazing training session with Gunnar. I have heard of him due to seeing him on Entertainment Tonight I believe when they had stories about the celebrities. Hopefully you will show something on your exercise segment the things you learn so we can continue to learn from you as well. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
