Best Gym Trainer (2012)

Keoni Hudoba

Let's be clear about one thing: Keoni Hudoba is more than a gym instructor. Yes, he works at a gym and leads group-workout sessions, but Hudoba embodies an enthusiasm for a better, healthier life that is inescapable. The Hawaii native, who's a group instructor at Barry's Bootcamp, Reebok Sports Club, Equinox, and 24 Hour Fitness, to name a few, knows the difficulties of losing weight that his clients face—he, too, once tipped the scales at more than 300 pounds. But now this beefy celebrity trainer has created his own workout routine called Drenched, designed to produce fast, powerful movements using martial arts and plyometric sequences. Although he says his workouts are "not for the faint of heart," Hudoba's rousing motivation can inspire the most frail person into an athletic superstar.
