Gyms in LA are filled with gorgeous looking, muscled-up personal trainers just waiting for the right client to come along and offer them their own reality show or at least a shirtless extra role in a movie or a SNL skit.* It happens to virtually none of them, of course, precisely because there are so many of them pursuing the same path.
Chris Powell is an exception.
*This link is barely (ahem) connected to my point but you HAVE to watch it!
As host of ABC’s sometimes-on-the-air reality show Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, Powell struts around a lot with his shirt off, a nice gift to the weary eyes of straight female and gay male viewers alike, who are no doubt bedazzled by his 8-pack and his–how do i put this?–mouth watering pecs. (I mean, he could probably breast feed his newborn with those impossibly shaped mountains of perfectly formed male mammaries.)
But I digress.
Come to think of it, no, I don’t!
Powell’s amazing body is the point, of course. You can read about him on his website; I’m not going to even profile him here. Because, after all, what he looks like has everything to do with his personal training mission and his success.
