inspired by…?

nspiration can be found anywhere—even at your local movie theater. That’s why we chose Arnold Schwarzenegger to grace our latest cover. Beyond inspiring fitness enthusiasts for the better part of five decades with his infectious passion for the industry, he also set the standard for countless Hollywood A-listers who have embraced his teachings to transform their bodies for their latest movie roles. To celebrate Arnold’s impact on popular culture, we’ve compiled some of the most motivational big-screen physique transformations in a feature we call “Blockbuster Muscle” (page 18). Get inspired by the workouts that helped turn Dave Bautista, Hugh Jackman, Brie Larson, and, of course, Arnold himself into larger-than-life heroes for some of the biggest movies of all time.

Instagram: @zraz Last spring I was having lunch with my buddy Don Saladino at his New York City health club, Drive495, in SoHo. Don trains Ryan Reynolds, David Harbour, Sebastian Stan, Blake Lively, and Scarlett Johansson, among others, so I wasn’t sure if he’d smash his organic Buddha bowl into my piehole after I blurted out that I felt the moniker “celebrity trainer” sounded douchey. He didn’t; he laughed. Don has been a trainer for more than 20 years and acquired high-profile clients for no other reason than he’s a pro’s pro who remains a student of fitness and surrounds himself with other talented coaches and specialists.

block-buster muscle

IT’S COMMONPLACE TO HEAR ACTORS talk about how much time they spend in the gym to prepare for a movie role now, but Hollywood stars weren’t always concerned with hoisting dumbbells or tracking calories. Then the ’80s happened—or, more accurately, Arnold happened. The seven-time Mr. Olympia helped bring muscle into the mainstream, with movies like 1982’s Conan the Barbarian, 1984’s The Terminator, and 1987’s Predator raking in millions of dollars and exposing countless eyeballs to Schwarzenegger’s peak physique. Suddenly, beefy action heroes were everywhere, and if you wanted to be a blockbuster action star, you had to hit the gym. Now incredible physique transformations are an annual, if not monthly, occurrence on the silver screen, with some of the biggest names making even bigger strides in the gym. Thankfully, you can…

WATCH JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3—PARABELLUM Si vis pacem, para bellum—“If you want peace, prepare for war.” If John Wick 3’s ominous title is any indication, this third installment should be a buffet of badass action, especially with Halle Berry as an assassin who may just be able to outgun Wick (Keanu Reeves) himself. In theaters May 17 WATCH GOOD OMENS A foul-mouthed demon and a persnickety angel team up to stop the Apocalypse in this adaptation of the best-selling book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. With David Tennant, Michael Sheen, and Jon Hamm rounding out a perfect cast, this six-episode fantasy comedy should be on everyone’s bingeing radar.
