"For me, training with Simon is a crucial part of preparing for any action role...This ten-week programme is a fantastic example of Simon's thoughtful and effective approach to fitness." –Tom Hiddleston

Now everyone can benefit from A-list trainer Simon Waterson's unparalleled knowledge with this easy to follow and highly effective workout program.
Name an A-list actor with incredible fitness and there’s a very good chance that former marine commando Simon Waterson has trained them. And ten weeks is typically how long he has with his clients in pre-production to get them to peak fitness for a role. It is also the perfect amount of time for anyone to reboot their fitness using Simon’s Intelligent Fitness methods, insights and motivational advice.

Following on from his first book, Intelligent Fitness, which explored the theory behind some of Hollywood's most impressive transformations, Simon focuses here on a typical actor workout program. Whatever your goal, whether it’s reducing fat or increasing muscle tissue – this book will ensure you make real progress and see results in just ten weeks.

With increasing intensity in the workouts week on week, and the opportunity to ramp up the reps or vary the exercises as your fitness progresses – the focus for each week is inspired by a question from one of Simon’s famous clients – this is a workout book for anyone with a fitness goal. Featuring step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow exercises and advice, this is a program that you can keep coming back to as you continue on your fitness journey. 


"What sets Simon apart is not his work ethic, which is as strong as any trainer I’ve ever worked with, nor his innovative approach to fitness ... What makes him particularly unforgettable to me is his lovability. His warmth." - Chris Pratt

"Simon has a very strong philosophy, that aesthetic is a by-product of performance. This always made sense to me. Simon got me ready for filming on the Fast & Furious franchise as well as for Dracula Untold. All the information he gives you is easy to understand and sustainable and it allowed me to reach my goals and each time surpass them. He gave me the confidence physically to carry off these roles. He’s also a great human and I love working with him." - Luke Evans
