He has been typecast as an antihero and is one of the most bankable action heroes in the world.He is well trained in Mixed Martial Arts and is a kickboxing expert. He also learnt Karate, and he had little idea of how all this would benefit him. He has spent 12 years as one of the best divers on the British National Squad and placing an impressive 12th at the World Championships.  All that years of hard work and training for diving might not have paid off at the Olympics, but it gave him the physique of an athlete.

He prefers to do all his action stunts on his own including the fight sequences and car chase sequences in The Transporter, which came naturally to him since he had a background in martial arts. The fact that he does his own stunts has gained him a lot of fans who turn up time after time to watch his movies. He got his break into the entertainment industry when he featured in an advertisement for the French Connection. He was introduced to the director Guy Ritchie, who gave him an audition for the role of a street hawker in his directorial debut.

He has always held martial arts close to his heart. He grew up watching Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan who were experts in the field themselves. He has a physique that can outperform many action heroes. He has catapulted from being a British actor to an action hero, all thanks to his focus and hard work in the gym.

He has a body built by sheer intensity and a whole lot of hard work in the gym. He has a challenging workout regimen. He sticks to a simple rule: “if you’re going to train, train hard. And train with a purpose. It all stems from an uncompromising mental approach.”

He believes that the human body is like dynamite. You have to hit it so hard that it explodes. He believes in doing 40 hard minutes of workout instead of spending an hour and a half of nonsense. He never does the same workout twice. He has a changing combination of exercise every single day and he finds that very interesting. But the intensity of his workout never falls below full pelt.
