Delaware Personal Trainer Makes it Big in NYC?

A big thanks to former Philadelphia, now Brooklyn-relocated trainer Matt Shuebrook for the heads-up on my newest stalker, er… “fan” from the city that never sleeps.

I’m writing this knowing you won’t read it and I won’t act on it. Every time I see you I want to make an excuse to talk and hope you’ll laugh. Even though I won’t see you outside our normal circumstances, I can’t help but fantasize about your hard, lean body constantly. You are not my usual type, yet your intelligence and sense of humor, along with the physique, make you irresistable. I don’t think you feel the same way, but it’s for the best since I’m not your type either. Bottom line is you’re tempting me in the worst way. Whoever gets to have you at the end of the day is a lucky woman indeed.

Dear Nameless One from NYC,

While there are a handful of trainers located in the sales-tax free state of Delaware, based on the fact that I do spend some time working in SoHo every month, along with your spot-on description of my hard, lean body (not to mention my intelligence and sense of humor), I can only assume you’re referring to me (though you did noticeably omit charming, charismatic and ruggedly good looking).

Well, I guess what I mean to say is I did read your ad and I am flattered, yet retain my usual degree of humble-itude.

You may be right in that “we’re not each other’s ‘type'”.  But what else can I say other than next time you see me, please talk.  I’m pretty sure I’ll laugh.

Yeah.  I can just about guarantee that.


Love and fitness always,

Joe (the irresistable trainer from Delaware)

P.S. Until we cross paths once again under “normal circumstances”, feel free to fantasize about my blog posts right here at “The Cup” (and share it with your friends!)

P.P.S. Edwin, if this is you… I swear I’m gonna kick your ass at the next photo shoot (not that there’s anything wrong with that
