I Want My Mankini Body

by Gavan on May 18, 2009

How we doing guys?  Just wanted to drop in and let you know what’s going on today. I had a call yesterday (Sunday) from my friend Valerie Waters. She’s a personal trainer here in LA who has some major “A” list clients, too many to mention. I met Val years ago when (name drop time!) I was cooking for Cindy Crawford and Val was her trainer. I was hired by a sports nutrition company, EAS,  to cook for Cindy in accordance with this fitness program she was testing. So that’s how Val and I met. Since then though we lost touch, but a few months ago we reconnected through (my new best friend) Twitter. We chatted for a bit and she invited me to cook for some of the girls from one of her fitness/weight-loss programs she has online. This leads me to today. Val has her latest and greatest program launching today, Iwantmybikinibody.com. She’s doing an online chat today at from 4-6 PST and invited me a long to stick my head in and say hi to all her peeps so that’s what I’m going to do.

I’m going to on around 4.30pm PST so come say hi for sure.

I also came up with a recipe booklet that’s been given to all her clients who buy her new program. Let me break this down for you as to where I’m at with this opportunity. For me this isn’t about money necessarily BUT exposure. I’m looking to broaden my audience and get my name out there as being the man to come to when looking for healthy recipes. I’ve always been into fitness and have wanted to combine that with my love of food, so for me to be able to establish a relationship with that particular audience is brilliant. I have to tell you I’m really excited about the direction I’m going in right now and eventually WILL capitalize on that. For those people who just see ‘now’ and “I want to get paid today”, bollox. You have to serve your time, you know. Graft, work hard and it’ll come. Patience, that’s the key. I’ve a great opportunity right now to establish myself in the fitness community as the man to come to and I’m well pleased with that.

So, that’s where I’m at today. I’ll let you guys know how it pans out and btw if you haven’t subscribed head over to the top left of the site and pop in your name and email and I’ll shoot you off a great entertainment booklet with 5 brilliant easy recipes for FREE. (Do I sound like a car salesman?) You know you want to 😉

Hit me up with some comments, questions or suggestions below. Would love to hear from you guys.

Cheers

You ARE the man! I’ve been having the best time making some of your recipes….they are fabulous! You know what you are doing! And having first come to know you through Valerie’s dinner back in March and through Twitter I have to say I’m ‘hooked’! You make a mean dinner and lemon sorbet dessert! (so healthy and yummy!)

Very cool getting to chat with you again yesterday at Valerie’s new iwantmybikinibody.com launch! Always something to be learned! I will continue to spread the good word about you where I can!

All the best, always!

Gavin,
As one of Valerie’s followers of the RCR program, I truly appreciate all of the great ideas and tips you’ve provided, and look forward to many more. I was so sorry to miss the dinner in March, but am excited to try out your recipes in my own kitchen. Thanks again for bringing so much to all of us! We appreciate it!

All the best,
Stephanie
