The Los Angeles Lakers are a bad basketball team that have made a lot of bad hires and moves to get there. Now they’re hoping to get back to their winning ways, apparently by making hires in the LA celebrity spirit.
Lakers announce hiring of Gunnar Peterson as director of strength + endurance training.

If you’re prepping a female client for a big red carpet event, how do you step up workouts & how far in advance? Are you an advocate for “two-a-days”? I lobby for more sleep if they can get it so the body can recover. As for the rest, we operate on the ‘if you stay ready you never have to get ready’ principle…
Why is it so important to eat a low sugar diet? If you’re going to have a cheat meal, which is the lesser of two evils: fat or sugar? Refined sugar is white death! It’s so hard on the body. It spikes insulin levels and encourages fat storage! Naturally occurring fats are far less evil. And great for your hair…so I’m told.
No more sugar, Lakers players.
To be fair, Peterson is legitimately a good athletic trainer and has trained professional athletes before. He also just happens to train celebrities, like Kim Kardashian, who is not a basketball player. And while he’s probably qualified for the job, seeing that he is Kim Kardashian’s trainer is going to get some notice.
Hopefully this move works out for the Lakers in ways that their previous many acquisitions haven’t.
