Sam Trickett, 26, was a very promising football player as young and had a bright future envisaged, but a knee injury crushed his dreams of becoming a football pro and instead he started playing poker in 2005. Today he's considered one of the best poker players in the world and he has almost $20,000,000 in live tournament winnings. Besides poker, he's still trying to stay in shape - not on the football pitch but by frequently visiting the gym.

However, it seems like he's not fully satisfied with the results, because last week he tweeted that he was looking for a personal trainer to travel with him to Macau, Monte Carlo and Las Vegas for the next 2-3 months. If you got what it takes, you can send him a message on twitter. Good luck!
