My speciality is martial arts with over 25 years training, and I’m proudly nicknamed “the awesome kicking machine” by the legendary Chuck Norris, which is quite a compliment given his stature. I’m also known for my core workouts for which you can view on my youtube channel.
For my first article for celebzter.com, I would like to stick up for a mate of mine, she is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood….
Over recent months Cameron Diaz has received her fair share of criticism in regards to her passion for working out! Some people have said she has gone too far, or posed that question to their readers. It seems to me, some people get intimidated by a woman who looks in great shape and has an aura of confidence about herself.
I would like to counter some of the things that have been said about Cameron! First, I think you should know I know Cameron personally- I met her in London in one of the gyms I teach my exercise classes at, which is near the house she has bought here.
At first I didn’t realize it was her as I was working out, as I was deep into my training zone. I was going through my abdominal workout when she came into the gym. which was unusually quiet at the time of day.
The first thing I was struck by was her aura… she has an amazing energy. And, as she walked into the gym, she looked like a model. After I had finished my ab training I made my way to the other end of the gym and Cameron and I kind of met in the middle!
I stopped, as I briefly thought I recognized her but couldn’t place her face. It was quite funny, and I must have come across as rude, as I stared at Cam trying to figure out where I knew her from.
After what must have been 30 seconds and me obviously not recognizing her, Cameron smiled!!! As soon as Cameron smiled (think the movie the Mask and Cameron’s smile is truly amazing), I realized who I was staring at… at that point I shouted out (not thinking, really) “Cameron Diaz is in the gym!” After which, instead of her running away, she reached her hand out towards me and asked me my name. Without hesitation, I held her hand and said “Jay” at the same time, thinking “my god I’m touching Cameron Diaz’s hand”. As a red-blooded straight guy, I was in heaven, I must say.
I found Cameron to be incredibly down-to-earth, with a real vibe for life… and she is obviously incredibly intelligent.
Physically, Cameron looks like an athlete and has the body type to tone up very easily, which is what most women would die for. Look at women in track and field sports and you can see Cameron’s body type.
Now, some people are put off by “fit women” and that probably comes down to an image they have been force-fed or influenced unknowingly by, but to me, she looks great. She’s very feminine and ladylike without a doubt!
Cameron sure knows her way around a gym and, I have to be honest, after I realized who she was, I couldn’t focus on my workout as I would normally do… but it wasn’t just a normal day.
I could tell Cameron is quite competitive when it comes to working out as she was checking me out as I was going through my personal workout exercises, and I of course, I couldn’t resist checking her out as she did her squats. Cameron finished her workout before I finished mine and as she left the gym, she said my name… which I found to be really quite touching!
Add to that, she really looked like a “Charlie’s Angel” in her workout gear and I can honestly say, I will never forget meeting Cameron Diaz, even if I didn’t realize who she was at first sight.
