Your trainer can be the doorway to a different body, lifestyle, and state of mind — that’s why some of them have become nearly as famous as the celebrities they train. We can’t all afford daily sweat sessions with celebrity trainers (and not everyone lives near their L.A. and New York studios), but these five top trainers have made their methods widely available in books and DVDs. Check out our gallery of top trainers, and check out the links to their books and DVDs below.
