Aaron Eckhart impressed the entire world by his new body shape in a film “I, Frankenstein”. For the film he should have been in a quite different physical form. For this purpose, Aaron followed an intense 6-months-long training program. The program was created by a couple of choreographers, and it included a kind of stick fighting (Escrima, Arnis, and Kali).
His trainers, Diana and Ron, came to his house every day, and they had 3 hours of training. Then Aaron went to his trainer to get in a good shape. During the training, the actor learned the patterns, learned how to stick, and got used to use sticks. Turning them around, fighting with four opponents at once, kicks, footwork, punches, single and double stick, going high to low. It was hard work, but also a great experience. The training was built in such a way that Aaron felt the sticks as a continuation of his hands. Moreover, the training program was expanded to knife fight, gun training, weapons disarming, and all the stuff. In general, it looked like a military training program.
In addition to this program, every day Aaron Eckhart went to the beach with his physical trainer and had a weight training or sand sprint. Aaron says that the coach tried to kill him almost every day. The main aim was to take off some fat from the belly, and pump legs, arms, and chest. It was achieved. It was not a problem for Aaron, because he was always in the athletic shape, and went in for sport actively. It was more like a change of activities: from cycling to work out. Moreover, the actor grew up playing football, rugby, soccer, skiing etc. While making a movie, Aaron keeps the same diet everyday: eggs and fruits in the morning, chicken breast with avocado for lunch, protein shake for dinner, and some fruits at night.
