  1. Laney says:

    I can’t believe he has his own trainer. I mean I guess it makes sense because who wants to do their job for themselves, but still.

  2. Mindy says:

    Love, love, LOVE that he has his own trainer!
    And, I totally relate to #19 – if I can’t see a clock at night, I won’t sleep soundly and will wake up just about once an hour trying to figure out what time it is!

  3. Debbie says:

    Wow Jenn, rating Bob as one of the things you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! I purchased several of his DVDs when he put them on sale recently and have to say first time trying Bob’s workouts, I love them! Thanks for introducing him to me through your reviews and info. I may have otherwise missed out on a good thing!
