From Bleacher Report, 2015

Peterson is arguably the most renowned personal trainer in L.A. In addition to working with hundreds of different athletes (including Carmelo Anthony, Roy Hibbert, Kevin Love, Rajon Rondo and John Wall), he consults with A-list celebrities and actors to prepare them for movie roles.

He wakes up every weekday morning at 3:45 a.m. to begin his workouts before his first client arrives at around 6 a.m. His first NBA player was Kurt Rambis in 1994, and since then he's added Lakers, Clippers and dozens of other All-Star-signed framed jerseys from his clients all around his gym walls, even on the ceiling. His specialization is basketball-specific exercises that mimic movements on the court.

Hibbert started working with Peterson during this year's All-Star Weekend, and he was so impressed that he bought a house just two blocks from the trainer's gym entering the summer before he was traded to the Lakers.

"He was my first NBA guy in this summer, and he never missed a workout," Peterson said. "He dropped a ton of body fat, he got stronger, his movement improved—his head is right."

Kim Kardashian's trainer. Makes sense because the Lakers have the best young assets in the league.

Good (bleep). Too bad everyone focusing on the "celebrity trainer" bit. My biggest hope is that he handles Ingram's development as meticulously as Grassfed did.

This makes me feel a bit better. Hopefully by signing to LA, he drops his main job to actually work for us. I'd rather he not juggle his current clients and our team. It'd suck if all he does is show up, give a task, and leave.

Another Showtime connection. Do we go forward by going backwards? I hope so.

Roy Hibbert


He's worked with hundreds of athletes and Hibbert is the only one you mentioned?

He's worked with hundreds of different athletes (including Carmelo Anthony, Roy Hibbert, Kevin Love, Rajon Rondo and John Wall). Don't know the other athletes names.

The name Gunnar means fighter, soldier, and attacker, but mostly is referred to by the Viking saying which means Brave and Bold warrior (gunnr "war" and arr "warrior").

As long as he doesn't misdiagnose a knee tear (that cost us a title by the way), then we're good.

If Kevin Love is any example of his work... we're in good shape (hehe) there is a good side by side on his Instagram which I will post below but it sure shows a lot of K Love skin... don't say I didn't warn you.

I think that is what the medical staff is there for. And it will be the UCLA medical people.
