Family business! When it comes to training, many Hollywood stars refer to their kids as ideal training companions.

“The first time I [trained for Thor], I was just doing weightlifting,” Hemsworth told W magazine in July 2017. “I haven’t worked in as much cardio or functional flexibility as I do now. This is much better. … I felt very constrained and somehow awkward. Now I feel much more like it’s a useful kind of muscle, a functional kind of movement and training.”

“I’ll be so honest,” Kent told Women’s Health magazine in February 2022. – When I go to the gym, I think: “What should I do with all these things?” of a person who should take a friend with him who knows what he is doing, or works with a coach.”
At the time , she added: “[Jenna Willis] has been my coach for a very long time and also a very dear friend. If you’re looking for a coach, you should find someone you like because it’s almost like a therapy session. We work on our body—and on our mind, and on our soul, and on our spirit.”
Former bachelor Sean Lowe, for his part, came up with a full workout using his three children — Samuel, Isaiah and Mia, whom he shares with wife Catherine Giudici — later that month.
