Britney: Piece of Me at Planet Hollywood
In preparation for the Britney Spears extension of her resident show “Britney: Piece of Me” at the Axis at Planet Hollywood, her amazing dancer Zac Brazenas has been working with a personal-strength trainer to ensure that his body is rebuilt for the longer run with more power, speed and flexibility.
I reported in February the incredible story of Zac’s extraordinary injuries that he overcame after a 28-foot fall. For the past month, Zac has been working out with Seth Browning at the private gym Mansion Fitness in West Hollywood, Calif.
Zac explained that certain movements were proving difficult and painful for him, particularly in the huge wheel number where he has to grab and spin another dancer. Seth has been working him to become more mobile with better movements, and many of the exercises mimic the tougher routines in Britney’s show.
Zac says changes and improvements have already begun, and he is reporting great results so that he can make it through the next two years injury free in the Planet Hollywood show.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
