After researching Louisville-area personal trainers, Paramount Pictures hired me to train Hollywood superstar Orlando Bloom when he filmed “Elizabethtown” in Louisville.

Orlando works out regularly with a well-known trainer in LA, with fast-paced workouts employing moderate weights and lots of stretching. We followed a similar protocol. His sessions lasted anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes, with about half the time spent weight training, 25% spent jumping rope (his favorite type of cardio) and 25% spent stretching. One sunny day he wanted to exercise outdoors so I got two bicycles and we rode around Seneca Park.

Orlando is very flexible and moves with the easy grace of an athlete. He also impressed me with his graciousness – he was always accommodating when approached with requests for autographs and photos.
