As a celebrity journalist, my days are spent poring over images of beautiful famous faces and figures.
Ever heard the mantra ‘if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em’?
Well, I’m on a quest for an A-list body - come and join me on my mission.
I’ve found a team that can help me on my mission.
Jonathan Goodair is a personal trainer to the stars, boasting Stella McCartney, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna among his client list.
He has set up residence in Marylebone’s Home House, a private member’s club, running his state-of-the-art gym with the help of his team of trainers.
So it is there that I’m headed, every weekday for the next five weeks, to work out with Jonathan himself. I’m told each session will involve a mixture of dance-inspired cardio and high-repetition toning exercises that focus on lengthening the body to its ultimate leanness.
In fact, Jonathan has taken inspiration from the Tracy Anderson method, after working with Tracy years ago. She’s the pint-sized fitness demon responsible for whipping Nicole Richie, Gisele Bundchen, Courteney Cox and of course Gwynny into shape, and she’s shared her wisdom with Jonathan so that he’s best placed to train her clients based in London.
Safe in the knowledge that exercise is only half the battle, I’ll also be following a diet plan compiled by nutrition guru Sarah Schenker. She’s forewarned me that soup and salads will be the order of most days, so my veg box is fully stocked and I’m raring to go.
Can a regular girl get an A-list body when armed with a celeb trainer and nutritionist? I’m about to find out. Stay tuned to learn all about my journey and I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
