Which Famous Person Would You Like to Workout With?

Truth ” I once worked out with Trish Stratus of WWE fame:

Only her name wasn’t Trish Stratus at the time. She and I were in the same year of Kinesiology and Health Science at York U in Toronto and were also in the same strength training practicum together. She taught me the proper form for doing tricep kickbacks:

She’s super nice and has one hell of a work ethic (you have to really work hard to get a body like hers) and I ‘m sure those two traits combined with her great looks helped her to accomplish all that she has.

That all said, I’d love for Paula Radcliffe to push me through a tough speed workout. Her English accent would make the encouragement she shouted at me while she ran (jogged) beside me as I ran my hardest would sound so much less bossy for some reason.

She also seems so down-to-earth and being a mom & an athlete, I think we could run together like old friends (I’d run, she’d keep up just by walking fast).

    Those are great! I wouldn’t mind working out with Trish Stratus either… I’ll take a cue from you though and use athlete/dad either Craig Alexander (Ironman Champ) or Simon Whitfield (though London didn’t go his way, he’s still awesome).

    For today’s post I did a race preview of this Sunday’s Bracebridge Triathlon. When’s your tri, Janice?

    Paula is on my list of women I’d love to work out with as well, but I’d give anything to get my butt kicked in the sand with Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings.

    Running with Paula would be awesome! I felt so bad for her when she had to pull out of the Olympics.

    English accents make everything sound better, don’t they?

    I know I should have chosen a bodybuilder, but I chose Michelle Obama instead. Here’s my pick:

    Although i would probably hate it at the time, i’d pick Shaun T (celeb trainer from Insanity). Anyone who was tried 2 minutes of those dvds knows what i’m talking about. I’m sure it would be a great workout but even just to pick his brain and get advice would be worth the hellish hour of work. Thanks for the post!
