Michelle Rodriguez flaunts her envy-worthy abs and toned arms on Instagram and in the latest installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. How does she keep her bikini-ready look year-round? By training before filming and enjoying life during her time off.
She Trains…When Necessary
Before intense, butt-kicking roles, Rodriguez trains with stuntmen and LA fitness guru Tracy Anderson. “I did two months with the stunt guys and I took some Tracy Anderson toning [classes] so I can get my insides ready to take a punch,” she told the Huffington Post. “Tracy really good at getting your core ready.”
She’ll Go for a Dip

She Takes Time to Find Her Center
After whirlwind red carpets, Rodriguez needs to exercise her soul. She told Interview, “I enjoy vanity like the best of them. But I can’t stick to any of that lifestyle for too long because, when its true colors come out, it’s empty and cold and soulless. So I have to travel and go find some real people. After Cannes every year, I end up going to some foreign country I’ve never been to before and introducing myself to a new religion—I’ll go to Bali and research Hinduism, or I’ll go to Thailand and get another tattoo from [Thai tattoo artist] Ajarn Noo [Kanpai].”
She Climbs Mountains
Ain’t no easy task to get to the top. Rodriguez works hard to get there. “You know, if you don’t prepare and you don’t train and you don’t put your mind into what you’re doing, then you should get out of the business. Then it’s not worth it.”
She Moves to the Music
From Burning Man to Patti Smith at the Roxy and back to her very own room, Rodriguez is always finding a danceable beat.
She Works on Her Ninja Skills
…Probably because ninjas are cool as sh*t.
