Autumn in Action Celebrity trainer Autumn Calabrese is killing it with her fitness-focused projects Words by Vanessa Pascale Photos Courtesy of Sarah Orbanic "I swear, I'm awake!" Autumn Calabrese assures me with a smile. "I apologize for my rude yawning, I'm still adjusting to the time. I got in on Sunday night at 8 pm." It's a Wednesday evening in November. The Calabasas, California-based personal trainer/certified health coach and I are chatting as we look over Koi's dinner menu. The super-fit, blue- eyed, brunette is dressed in an olive and black striped turtleneck, skinny jeans, and tan shearling booties. Autumn is here in New York City for the week doing press. "We did a couple of things today: Prevention online, a couple of podcasts, fitness things..." Autumn has trained a list of high-profile celebrities, including, Kendall Jenner, Rachel Zoe, and Tom Bergeron. Last summer, Autumn was one of the personal trainers on E!'s Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian. "It was really fun. [Autumn's episode, season 3's finale, was the most viewed episode of the season.] It was great, because I got to kinda go back to my roots, which is working one-on- one with somebody." (Autumn's busy schedule doesn't allow her to train many clients these days.) "I loved the girl I got to train, Terra. She was working through a lot, so it was really nice to get to be a part of that," says Autumn, who spent 12 weeks training Terra. "I only worked with Khloé [Kardashian] twice, but I love her and she's so sweet. She really cares about the people that are on the show. You can genuinely tell she doesn't want to see you fail, but she doesn't take any crap, which is cool 'cause I'm kinda the same way. I hope the show gets picked up for another season, and I hope I get invited back because I would love to do it again!" she beams. This was Autumn's first foray into reality television and it has only made her hungry for more. "I was up for Biggest Loser just recently. It came down to me and one other girl. They ended up going with sort of a lesser known, a girl who hasn't been on TV, but she went on her own weight-loss journey... That would've been amazing had that opportunity come through."
