Obsessed with your own individual trainer? A psychologist explains why.
They will have a human anatomy to perish for, they appear good in ripped singlets (the fantasy), they generate you are feeling such as the only individual on the planet, as well as you can’t get them off your mind… actually, they might even appear in your sex dreams if you’re in a committed relationship. Awkward.
