Jordana Brewster

Jordana Brewster has played Mia Toretto since the first film. She shared some of her favorite healthy meals with OK! Magazine. "[I'll] steam tons of vegetables and add avocado. And then I have soup with chicken or salmon for at least one of my meals. And then I'm getting all my vegetables in one meal, and I don't really have to worry about it after that."


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson


Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson joined the franchise as Luke Hobbes in Fast Five. He'd later get his own spinoff film, Hobbes & Shaw. He talked about wanting to stay motivated to stay in shape to Muscle & Fitness. "It occurred to me that all of the men I knew who had achieved success were all men of great physical stature," Johnson said. "And I knew that they all got that way through sweat equity—putting callouses on their hands. So in my mind, the key was simple: I'd continue going to the gym and work harder than before, and then I'd follow their path to greatness."


Michelle Rodriguez


Michelle Rodriguez plays Letty Ortiz. She shared her diet in an interview with OK! Magazine. "I eat a lot of free-range chicken. I eat a lot of salads. I gravitate towards broccoli, spinach, beets — beets are great. As far as sustenance goes, I feel I need that protein like fish or chicken to give me the boost."


Tyrese Gibson


Tyrese Gibson joined the franchise in 2 Fast 2 Furious, playing Roman Pearce. He shared to Men's Journal that his mindset is important when it comes to wellness. "I struggled for years with my focus. I got lazy and started enjoying the fruits of my labor too much. When I changed my mind, it helped me change my life—and how I look."


Gal Gadot


Gal Gadot is known for her action roles. She plays Gisele Yashar in the film series. Gadot talked about her fitness routine to Good Housekeeping. "I incorporated pilates into my workout routine, because I feel like there's something so holistic about pilates, and opening your rib cage and actually focusing on breathing."


Brie Larson


Brie Larson played Tess in Fast X. She shared her skincare secrets in an interview with Allure. "My skin-care routine has become how I begin and end my day. I am much more regimented about it than I ever was before because it's like, 'Okay, the day has begun. I'm going to wash my face. I'm going to moisturize.'"


Nathalie Emmanuel


Nathalie Emmanuel plays Ramsey, and joined the franchise in Furious 7. She shared her approach to fitness with OK! Magazine. "I'm not working out to be a certain weight or size," she said. "I'm a goal-oriented person. My fitness goals at the moment are to do pullups and a Pincha Mayurasana, which is a forearm stand in yoga."


Charlize Theron


Charlize Theron has appeared in three films as the villain Cipher. She shared her diet secrets with OK! Magazine. "I have juices and kale and green salads every day. When I'm eating healthily, getting enough sleep and not drinking alcohol, that's when I look my best. That's when I'm happiest, and I think it shows."


Jason Momoa


Jason Momoa played Dante Reyes in Fast X. His trainer, Damien Viera, shared his secrets with Men's Journal. "Jason couldn't do something like a ketogenic diet, because he needs readily charged energy from carbs to be explosive. And when I say carbs, I'm not talking about breads and pastas—those are long gone. I'm talking about cruciferous vegetables and fruits. You can't train the way we do with fat for fuel; you need the carbs for explosive movements."


Jason Statham

Jason Statham plays Deckard Shaw in the franchise, and its spinoff film, Hobbes & Shaw. Statham talked about working with trainer Logan Hood to Men's Journal. "Everything he asks me to do, he can do. I had met a couple of Hollywood trainers, but when I met Hood, I was hooked. He's like a machine."


Daniela Melchior


Daniela Melchior plays Isabel Neves in Fast X. She shared some of her favorite skin products with Byrdie. "In the morning, I do toner, Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid—but only when my skin needs it because sometimes it

break out. After hyaluronic acid, I put on moisturizer, eye cream. And sunscreen all the time—even if I stay home—because it's so important."


Alan Ritchson


Alan Ritchson played Aimes in Fast X. He opened up about his approach to diet and exercise to Men's Health. He says that since he works out a lot, he can indulge from time to time. "If your lifestyle is one of health and fitness, every day can become a cheat day," Ritchson said. "You don't have to go on these insane calorie deficit sprees and punish yourself in the gym. I work out 30 to 45 minutes a day. I get it in, get a little pump [and then] I might have a slice of pizza for lunch because I feel like it and I earned it."


John Cena

John Cena plays Jakob Toretto. He talked about his fitness routine in an interview with GQ. "My training has switched a lot because I'm old," Cena says. "I started lifting weights in a dedicated fashion when I was 12 years old. If you do the math, I'm coming up on 35 years of that. That's a long time. The biggest shift when I was in the WWE is, every day, I tried to be the strongest version I can be that day. Now, I'm trying to be able to lift weights when I'm 80, so I need to take a little bit more care of myself for the long term. I have a 40,000-foot perspective. It's a lot more work on flexibility and a lot more warming up."


Nathalie Kelley


Nathalie Kelley played Neela in The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift. She shared some of her favorite foods with The Cut. "I try to have a hot water and lemon juice in the morning and something fermented. Then I'll have broccoli cooked in beef lard or some kind of animal fat for breakfast. I kind of try not to have grains at all in my life, although they are my weakness. I try to eat a lot of animal fats and vegetables together."


Lynda Boyd


Lynda Boyd played Ms. Boswell in The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift. She loves to spend time outside, and shares a lot of outdoor photos on Instagram. In this one, Boyd and a friend are seen on a walk. She captioned the post, "I spent a lovely afternoon with @lunaferguson in the beautiful Queens Elizabeth park… She is a kindred spirit… XO."
