What a Difference Six Months Can Make

Stan 10/02/2012 6

Australian actor Russell Crowe has been following a hardcore fitness regime to get back into peak condition. He’s just made his first red carpet appearance since his weight-loss campaign began and he certainly looks like he has his physique back.

Keen to share his secrets, Russell is constantly tweeting about his training progress. It’s been about six months, I know this because I left my job round about that time to start up my own design agency. I personally follow Russell on Twitter and although he doesn’t know this, he’s been motivation me to go in the gym at times. I’d often be sat on my backside and read a tweet from Russell saying he’s rode so many miles and I’d immediately go upstairs and put my gym gear on. If you’d like to follow Russell on Twitter, you can do so over @russellcrowe.

I’ve researched on the internet what training routines Russell has done and combined with his tweets, I’ve a pretty good idea of how he’s managed to get back into shape. I read somewhere that he was on a gluten-free diet so I tweeted him asking if this was true. He replied to say yes he was. I was pleased he had taken the time out to tweet back as he has loads of followers. We’ll be doing some articles soon on gluten-free diets and how they can benefit your training so stay tuned.

Russell has openly said he loves his food and drink so he must have been very disciplined during his latest bout of training. Reading his tweets over the past few months, he’s certainly putting in the hard work and the results are simply brilliant. I know when you’re an actor you are required to bulk up and slim down for certain roles but at this stage in his life, I hope he stays at the later. Russell looks about ten years younger now and he should feel like it too.

I live in Durham, in the UK. Russell visited our town last year but unfortunately I couldn’t go because of work commitments. It’s nice to hear he thought our town was ‘gorgeous’ and why Russell was here. He’d made a promise to Bill Bryson to come to Durham and talk to members of the Durham Student Theatre. Hopefully next time he visits Durham, I can be there flying a 4Ever Fitness flag.

Thanks for reading,

    You have to admire the amount of weight he’s already lost. I don’t follow him on Twitter but I will now.

    I was in London yesterday for a business meeting and as I was walking through Covent Garden I walked past Russell Crowe and his family! He was looking in great shape so his training is clearly still going well. It made my day :0)
