In this interview Angel talks with Cameron Shayne, Martial Arts & Yoga personal trainer to Hollywood celebrities like Courteney Cox Arquette & Jennifer Aniston.

I think Cameron’s style of following a practice where you become more connected to your body is an intelligent one. All too often we’re encouraged to punish ourselves into shape. But you can still challenge yourself, even through a martial art, without having to beat yourself up. Don’t miss this one.



As well as training Courteney Cox Arquette and Jennifer Aniston, Cameron lived with Charlie Sheen for a summer to help him rehab from drug addiction. He told us it was an influential time, where he was exposed to the power and wealth of Hollywood’s elite.

He’s also trained Jamie Lee Curtis, Sean Penn, Renee Russo and David Arquette. And he was the personal trainer and fight scene choreographer for Chris Tucker in Rush Hour 1 and 2.

Cameron has been training in martial arts since he was 12 years old. He started the practice after being bullied as a child and eventually formed Budokon International, A School of the Yogic, Martial & Living Arts.

What About You?

For me, one of the most powerful pieces of advice Cameron shares with us is “Find an exercise that you love, that inspires you and that is difficult.” We’re constantly being bombarded with products and services promising to make things effortless for us, when our minds and our bodies are really evolved to thrive under challenging conditions.

When was the last time you did something challenging but doable, either mentally and physically, and how did you feel afterwards?
