When it comes to Oscars night, everyone stepping on the red carpet wants to look their best, and everyone’s favorite Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence will likely be feelin’ it on Sunday night. Dalton Wong, the star’s personal trainer, has made sure of that. “We train for [the Oscars], just like a… movie,” he reveals to us. “We prep anywhere from three to four weeks ahead of time.”
As Jennifer’s personal trainer of six years (Dalton has been working with her since her X-Men: First Class days), and author of The Feelgood Plan: Happier and Slimmer in 15 Minutes a Day, Dalton has created a solid foundation for the Oscar nominee to prep with. “She’s very committed to her craft,” Dalton tells us. “She’s very good at balancing.” He doesn’t mean that in the physical sense (although anyone that can move like Katniss probably has great coordination too); when you train with Dalton, it’s about more than simply “working out.” It’s a lifestyle where diet and exercise are just part of it, and creating sustainable life skills is key.
“When I worked with her several years ago, it wasn’t really like getting into shape for something. It was about getting in a healthy state of mind, and that’s really fantastic. When she goes out on Sunday, she’s going to look amazing.” We couldn’t agree more, Dalton.
