Hollywood superheroes have stunning special powers, but this is not the only weapon they need to defeat their enemies. Usually, the characters require a strong and fit body, and achieving this goal is sometimes tougher than knowing how to manage a superpower. That’s the reason why Hollywood celebrities have personal trainers to reach the perfect body for an action film. And Don Saladino is the man who work with many of them.

Marvel or DC. It doesn’t matter the comic universe. Saladino tunes up anybody who wants to save the world. Based in NY, he owns Drive Health Clubs, where he has shown his friendship with Ryan Reynolds, who features Deadpool. Saladino trained the actor to be in the perfect shape for the movie.

Our special guest has a high demand as a personal trainer for pro athletes, golfers, musicians and celebrities. Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Liev Schreiber, Sebastian Stan, Morgan Hoffman, Hugh Jackman, and David Harbour, are a few names of the clients roster who have trained with Saladino at Drive495 gym in Soho, Manhattan.

Huge agenda

So, in addition to Deadpool, Saladino has prepared other characters like BlackWidow (Scarlett Johansson, ‘Avengers’), Hellboy (David Harbour), Logan (Hugh Jackman) or Solomon Grundy (Drew Powell, ‘Gotham’).

The coach has been tapped as a fitness expert in publications such as Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Met Rx and most recently, was featured on the cover of the March issue of Muscle and Fitness. He has also been featured in Origins, In Touch, US Weekly, and People; and has made appearances doing live fitness demos on The Today Show, Page Six TV, People NOW, The Better Show, & The Juice.
