Wilson's trainer, Jono Castano, broke down the weekly workouts he does with the actress to E! Australia. Castano revealed that Wilson does five days of HIIT each week. "We focus on plenty of HIIT circuits, but at the same time, focusing on technique and tempo. And understanding that each exercise is vital when working at a quick capacity. Another element we focused on was resistance and mobility training to ensure we're covering all areas, including posture."
