Garrett John Hedlund, simply known as Garrett Hedlund, is an American actor and singer born in Roseau, Minnesota, USA on September 3, 1984 to parents Kristine Anne and Robert Martin Hedlund. When he was in his teenage years, he already has a penchant for acting. He used to work in a food chain as a waiter and whenever he’s paid with tips from the customers, he immediately pays the money to his acting coach just to work on script materials. It was in the year 2003 when Garrett finally decided to pursue his dream to become a Hollywood star. He moved to Los Angeles and eventually in 2004, he landed his first-ever role when he was cast in the blockbuster film Troy by which he starred with celebrated actors Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, Brian Cox, Eric Bana, and other casts. That was the beginning of his promising career. Nowadays, he’s currently busy filming for the upcoming movie Unbroken by which he will play as John Fitzgerald.
To make his body fit, healthy, and an action hero type, Garrett resorts to a rigid training. According to him, he usually performs farmers’ walks, box jumps, tyre drags, and bear crawls. This set of exercises, he admits, is not an easy one. But he says it’s all worth it because it helped him build some muscles and somehow make his body lean. Apart from that, it makes him feel confident. “You might think the thinner version of yourself is going to be the most positive or confident, but that’s not how it is for me. When I’m over 200 pounds, that’s what I’m the most confident version of myself,” he says. Now, that’s a bold determination and it somehow serves as our motivation to be fit and well-toned like him.
