ryan-kwantenRyan Kwanten of True Blood, is many things; however, high on the list is his extreme fitnessRyan is in simply incredible shape, which he has achieved by NOT going to the gym!

The 32 year-old Australian has led an active lifestyle, which in the past included competing in Triathlons and boxingRyan was state champion in the welterweight division, from the ages of 13-15.  Participating in these sports have left him with a leaner, more natural looking ‘beach body’ effect, compared to the pumped up appearance of someone who purely goes to the gym.

Since moving to Los Angeles, there’s been a change in Ryan’s approach to working out, leading him to do more body weight exercises, such as sit ups, push ups and pull ups.  He also does more interval training and jumps rope, to help with his cardio fitness.  He doesn’t compete in Triathlons any more, but has competed in biathlons in LA, winning it in 2006 and 2007.  He doesn’t believe in using gym equipment for cardio, preferring to run on outdoor trails and the beach.  The variable resistance in this type of exercise ensures that his body cannot grow accustomed to the exercise, which means it burns more fat.

If Ryan has to get extra lean for a particular scene or photo shoot, for 2-3 days beforehand he changes his diet to a ‘paleo diet’, which is mainly based around protein and vegetables, with few refined grains and carbs.  This lessening of carbs means his insulin levels stay stable, which is the key to burning body fat round the clock, as the body cannot use fat for energy when insulin levels are high.

This style of working out, without using a gym, is becoming more popular in Hollywood – it challenges the traditional structure of going to a gym, and keeps workouts more varied and interesting, which makes it easier to stick to a fitness regime.  A trainer who specializes in helping people to achieve this look is Rusty Moore, who has named his technique the Vacation Body Blueprint.  If you want to achieve the fitness of Ryan Kwanten, check out his video and report at: http://vacationbodyblueprint.com
