Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence had to work hard to get into shape to be Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. She worked with celebrity trainer Dr. Joe Horrigan. Horrigan said Lawrence’s workout program was composed of 5 parts: cardio, strength training, yoga, routine and attitude. Her workouts combined track and agility drills, medicine ball workouts, sprints, stationary cycling and even archery.

Jennifer Lawrences’ grueling workouts paid off in her role as Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games:

  • Morning: Agility
  • Afternoon: Stunts
  • Evening: Bike

Sample Workout: Agility

Jennifer isn’t a huge fan of working out. Her personal trainer knew he would have to make the workouts fun, safe, and effective. In an interview after the movie, Silver Linings, Jennifer Lawrence is famous for saying:

I HATE EXERCISING. I WANT TO PUNCH PEOPLE IN THE FACE WHO SAY THAT. BUT, IT’S NICE TO BE IN SHAPE FOR A MOVIE, BECAUSE THEY BASICALLY DO IT ALL FOR YOU. IT’S LIKE HERE’S YOUR TRAINER. THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN EAT.
