"After playing for 20 years as a professional hockey player and after playing for several teams in the NHL, preparation and maintenance is an important aspect of my routine. Mario helped me tremendously to recover between games and kept me tuned up and sharp throughout the entire NHL season."

20 Celebs Who Got Fit Dancing

9. Erin Andrews

Working with LA-based trainer Mario Serban (who specializes in helping dancers protect themselves from injuries during competitions) helped this sportscaster dance her way into the finals. An injury prompted Erin Andrews to enlist Serban's help while she was competing on Season 10 of Dancing With the Stars. "I injured my back during the fourth week of the show. Under Mario's care, not only was I able to dance that week, but I stayed in the competition until the very end. I know my body wouldn't have made it through three months of extensive dance training without Mario," Andrews said.
