Celebrity Trainer, Workout & Diet

To put on the muscle that “defies age,” Bruce has to train hard for it.

To get in shape for Die Hard, he did hour-long cardio and strength sessions nearly every day for three months before filming.

Bruce’s trainer Gunnar Peterson, one of LA’s most sought-after trainers working with celebrities, prepared the actor for the shooting.

The trainer’s main principle is consistency, as Gunnar mentioned in an interview:

People Trying To Right A Lifetime Of Wrongs Two Weeks Before A Deadline. Overhauling Their Lives Instead Of Improving It Piece By Piece In A Way That Will Work For The Long-Term.



Bruce Willis’ workout plan is a balanced mix of exercises that help him maintain his strength and physique as he gets older.

The training program mostly consists of:

  • Cardio (for general fitness and reduced body fat)
  • Exercises with a stability ball (for strength and flexibility)
  • A mix of exercises, daily


First of all, protein is key. Bruce’s meals include these options:

  • Fish
  • Chicken
  • Turkey
  • Beans
  • Egg whites

Plus, there’s always fruits, veggies, and tons of water.

And of course, Bruce avoids the following:

  • Processed foods
  • Refined sugars
  • Fruit juices

How can a super busy person commit to a workout plan on a regular basis? Gunnar Peterson gives this piece of advice: “Write it in PEN! Treat it like an appointment, a job interview, or an oversold airline flight — don’t be late and don’t miss it.”
