Under the stresses and strains of the executive lifestyle, some chief executives are seeking the help of personal trainers. All very Hollywood, Backchat thinks.

GAB Robins chief operating officer Philippe Bes works out every morning at his local gym near Chelsea Harbour. He also happens to train with two celebrity members.

"I have the pleasure of training with Rebecca Loos and Elle Macpherson," says Bes.

It seems the nickname Philippe 'The Body' Bes has stuck at the GAB Robins London office, though Backchat is not sure whether Loos has taught him to "bend it like Beckham" as yet.
