It's been 12 years since Simon Pegg tried to get fit in Run Fatboy Run and now the actor has undergone a dramatic physical transformation for his upcoming movie Inheritance.
The 49-year-old has been hitting the gym and working with a personal trainer for the last six months, in an effort to lose fat and define his muscles for the role, which requires him to be ‘lean, VERY lean’.
Trainer Nick Lower shared a snap of the actor on Instagram, where he detailed the workout routine and revealed Pegg had lost 9kg, as well as four per cent body fat since he began training.
He wrote: #SimonPegg 6 month body transformation for #InheritanceMovie. The brief for this role was lean, VERY lean. It required a specific body shape & look.
Body weight: 78kg [down to] 69kg. Body Fat: 12% [down to] 8%.
The post continued:
A mix of strength, circuits, core & 60km p/w trail runs! A sound nutrition plan that worked for him and his goals.
6 months of hard work has paid off and I tip my hat to you sir…
