In this episode, we speak to personal trainer Simon Waterson.
Simon is a former marine commando who turns actors into athletes.
He has effectively been James Bond’s PT for more than 25 years.
Simon has worked with Daniel Craig on all of his Bond films, and he’s also
worked with many of Hollywood’s biggest names, like Chris Evans for Captain America, Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy, and preparing Benedict Cumberbatch to play Doctor Strange.
Simon has just written a new book called ‘Intelligent Fitness’ which details his experiences of working with all the big names, even revealing the specific workouts he did with each of them.
Simon tells us some of the stories of what goes on behind the scenes on the biggest blockbusters, and some of his own recollections of working with A-listers.
We also hear some fantastic advice and inspiration for listeners who might be starting their own 2022 fitness regime – Simon has plenty of tips to help you out.
Intelligent Fitness: The Smart Way to Reboot Your Body and Get in Shape by Simon Waterson is published by Michael O'Mara Books in hardback, £18.99, and available from all good bookshops.
