Olivia Wilde’s Personal Trainer:
Patrick Murphy. Because of the one-of-a-kind costumes she had to wear in Tron: Legacy, Olivia could not gain or lose a single pound. To maintain fitness while preventing muscle gain, her trainer had her perform extensive calisthenics in a circuit training routine. She adopted a routine in which she did an hour of cardio five days per week, weight training three times per week, and martial arts three times per week. According to Olivia, “My workout routine became progressively tougher as I became stronger.”
