Tales From Jackie Warner’s Skysport Spa – How personal fitness training opens doors.

August 18th, 2006 by Fitness Guardian

Brian “Peeler” got his big break and fitness made it happen. He’s one of the trainers on Bravo’s Workout – a reality (maybe) Docu-drama about Jackie Warner, her girfriend Mimi and building her Skysport spa business.

Flashback a year: Peeler, 27, is a drifter with a dream wallowing in Salisbury, NC. He wants to break into acting but can’t make it happen.

The Charlotte Observer tells the tale:

Peeler grew up in Granite Quarry, just outside Salisbury, and dropped out of East Rowan High in 10th grade. An athlete and certified trainer, he tried working in construction, as a flight attendant and as a model, without much success.

So he sold his stuff and left for California in his beat-up Isuzu, with just enough gas money to get there. He spent his last $20 on a photo to help him get cast as a movie or TV extra, he said.

The casting calls led to few roles. But Peeler made friends, and one told him to capitalize on his trainer experience instead of pining for his dream role. Peeler got a job at a gym and was recruiting customers when he heard about tryouts for the Bravo show.

Peeler said he crashed the audition for kicks. He nailed the gig by being himself. Now he’s on TV, doing what he loves and hoping for his next big break.

“I came out here with nothing, and now my life is so great,” said Peeler, soon to be married.

If you’ve watched the show just ask yourself what Peeler has that you don’t? Really nothing…

1. He had a dream.
2. He took action and risk to pursue it by changing his environment and knocking on doors. (Hey, 70% of anything is just showing up)
3. He used what he knew about (fitness) as a way to get to something he didn’t know about (Acting)

What can personal training do for you?

Jackie Warner Abdominal Workout

July 29th, 2006 by Fitness Guardian

Skysport Brian

Brian aka “Peeler” on Bravo T.V.’s “Workout” demonstrates what must be an approved Jackie Warner workout for your abs. 

Peeler is billing at $135.00 per hour.  But that didn’t help him avoid the ultimate indignity as a trainer – having Jackie Warner correct him on exercise form in front of his client.  (Come on Peeler – keep that core engaged.  Pure isolation exercise is for wimps and the functionally phobic) 

So now dear reader, you be the judge on his stability ball form

Personal Training T.V. Show – “Workout”

July 24th, 2006 by Fitness Guardian

Workout on BravoWorkout – the new Bravo T.V. show about Jackie Warner and her Sky Sport and Spa club is just about to air. 

I think anytime an industry is portrayed on T.V. it’s a double edged sword.  On one hand, the audience exposure to the benefits of personal fitness training will be great for the industry as a whole.  From the reviews and background information I’ve read, Jackie Warner, the show’s main focus is credible, professional and genuinely committed to making a difference in clients lives.

On the downside, there is always a risk of alienating viewers when you showcase the high end of the personal training profession.  Exclusive L.A. studios and spas, egotistical trainers and super-fit clients may not provide a realistic portrayal of fitness training for the masses.

But hey, I’ll reserve all judgment at this point.  I’m looking forward to watching the show.  I’ll be back with my review.
