YM: Do you do anything to stay in shape?
Aaliyah: It’s funny, before my first tour in 1994, I really didn`t think I needed to do anything more than I was already doing. I`ve always been pretty active–skating, swimming, dancing, whatever–and I’ve always eaten pretty well. So I thought that was enough. But I knew that I could have even more energy on-stage. So about a month before I went on tour last August, I got with this trainer Dion Jackson in Los Angeles, and we started working out 5 days a week. We did a total-body workout with weights every other day, and a hour of Cardio stuff, like the treadmill, bike, and Stairmaster. And Dion gave me the magic plan: One day a week, I can eat whatever I want.

In L.A., the hottest personal trainers are like the coolest bars.

Discreet. Word-of-mouth. Old-school meets new-school. And very good looking.

Dion Jackson`s retro-modern workouts have trimmed everyone from Rob Lowe to J-Lo. His appeal is fabulously anti-fabulous. No butt-busting gizmos, no stupid shortcuts. No wellness mumbo-jumbo. Just cardio, crunches, dumbbells, and boxing gloves (with a side of heavy sweating). Which is to say that Jackson`s cocoon-y gym may be located near Crunch, but psychologically it`s worlds away.

And last but not least was the physical fitness and personal trainer of Dr. Betty Price, Dion Jackson. Dion lead a mild but exhilarating aerobic workout after explaining the importance of a proper and frequent exercise program and instructing everyone to seek advice from their personal physician prior to undertaking any exercise program.
