Working out has never been so hard in this hilarious new comedy series by independent filmmakers Selah Victor, Michael Onofri, and Alexa-Sascha Lewin. TRAINERS follows a band of misfit Personal Trainers who battle each other, absurd clients, and the threat of their less than lovely LA-based gym closing its doors for good.
REGGIE: Sweat LA's Gym Manager. He is full of absurd nuggets of wisdom and he eats, sleeps, and breathes the gym.
MANDY: Actress/trainer, her clients are so not her priority, but getting on TV definitely is and she will do anything to make that happen.
EDDIE: "The Predicament" hails straight out of Jersey. His claim to fame: once did 2,107 squats without a break. He is the best trainer he's ever met.
AL: Stuck in the closet, a lesbian trainer who insists on being called “Alexandra”, but everyone still calls her "Al". Al hides her relationship with her girlfriend, Lara.
SAMSON: Former Mr. America/Mr. Universe, bodybuilder, his outward appearance hides his inner puppy dog love for Kaylie.
JIN: A Caucasian martial arts specialist, who thinks he is Asian. He was adopted by Asian parents and so speaks with an Asian accent.
JULIO: The Latin Lover, well manicured and a perfect physique. Julio wants to have sex with Julio and thinks the world of his training technique, which he calls “The Technique”.
KAYLIE: One of the two front desk greeters. Kaylie is not entirely comfortable in her own skin and has a huge crush on Scott. She is also pined over by Samson.
SCOTT: The other front desk greeter, Scott looks like he stepped out of an Abercrombie Ad. He is not dumb, but not going to Harvard any time soon.
