Amy Schumer takes her workouts very seriously. Just ask her personal trainer, AJ Fisher, who received a cease and desist letter from the 38-year-old comedian after an “extreme” workout.
On the season finale of her podcast 3 Girls, 1 Keith, Schumer was joined by Fisher, along with celebrity coach Harley Pasternak. The Snatched star recalled a time when she was forced to seek legal action against Fisher, who put her through a grueling training session.
“AJ, our workouts were so hard that I threatened you near constantly,” she said.
Fisher confirmed that Schumer’s lawyers reached out to her, adding, “Lawsuits. There was an official cease and desist letter.”
Of course, the comedian felt no shame from her actions, revealing that her lawyer had been trolled, too. “I did have my lawyer, Isaac Dunham, send her a cease and desist,” Schumer said. “This is the guy I bought bench ads for without his permission, so his face was on benches for several months.”
Schumer proceeded to share a photo of the tongue-in-cheek cease and desist letter on Instagram.
It reads: “‘We are the attorneys for Amy Schumer, an internationally known actress, comedian and high-profile public figure. It has come to our attention that while Ms. Schumer has engaged you to perform simple physical training for her, you have instead forced Ms. Schumer to perform extreme and unduly punishing physical exercises well outside the bounds of normal physical training. Indeed Ms. Schumer has been unable to perform simple daily tasks like walking and picking up her child as a result of such ‘exercise.’”
Well played, Schumer. Well played.
