If like me you’re in the spotlight then you will know how important it is to stay in shape. Just because I am only impersonating a celebrity, doesn’t mean that I can simply let myself go; this is especially true for me as I am a Derek Williams and I am a dead ringer for Sven Goran Eriksson who is a famous football star.

So let me just emphasize how I feel about my role as a famous impersonator; firstly it is something that I take immense pride in and not a matter that I take lightly either. This shows in the fact that I have taken a lot of time to learn how to imitate Sven down to his smallest habits. And when it comes to a fitness regime, staying in shape is one of the main elements of staying on top of my game.

 

What does someone like me look for in a personal trainer?

 

· Of course I need someone who understands who I am as a Sven lookalike.

· Secondly, I try to find a personal trainer who knows how to keep me in shape and more importantly keep my body looking identical to my famous counterpart.

· The person I choose will have to be able to help in targeting key elements of my physique that may need constant work in order to maintain its “Sven-like” appearance.

 

When you look at how much effort goes into actually keeping up my appearance; I am sure that you will wholeheartedly understand why I have been named as the one true Sven lookalike. The main element that my clients notice is my lean body and physically fit physique; which is one of the characteristics that the real Sven is well known for.

 

If my physical trainer was not able to understand what I required of them then I am sure that it could spell the end of what I deem to be a highly successful career. This would not only be devastating for me but also for my many fans across the UK and other countries.

 

Just like any celeb; whether you are the real persona or a lookalike, being fit and healthy is the one way in which I am actually able to handle the stressful demands of my job. Let’s face it being in the spotlight is not easy and peak physical conditions will not only enable you to deal better with stress, but from first hand experiences, it will also come in quite handy when you are in the middle of a frenzied stampede.

 

Basically, what I am trying to stress is that unless your lookalike is overweight and unfit, hiring a skilled personal training professional is not a luxury but rather a very important necessity. Putting the right amount of time and effort into any venture guarantees its overall success and your famous impersonator career is in truth no different. So take time to look after yourself as the gifted human being that you are and the famous celebrity you portray in the public eye.
