Hollywood actress Keri Russell‘s breakout role was as Felicity Porter on the TV series Felicity. Her role on the show earned her a Golden Globe Award. She also established her career in the movies, playing supporting roles in We Were Soldiers, The Upside of Anger and Mission: Impossible III. She also played the lead in the independent film Waitress. She continued her film career with roles in The Girl in the Park, August Rush and Extraordinary Measures. She returned to television with a lead role on the short-lived comedy series Running Wilde. She was then cast for the role of Elizabeth Jennings on The Americans. She has been playing the said role since 2013. The said role has also earned her a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
The award-winning actress is already in her 40s, but she’s still remarkably toned and slender. She’s also strong and agile, something that’s apparent on the show The Americans where she currently stars in. Of course, she performs all necessary workouts required by her character on the show. Her trainer even revealed that their workouts are “based on real survival and hand-to-hand combat tactics.” Her weekly fitness regimen consists of striking squats, lunges, self-defense push-ups and 360 kicks.
To perform successfully, her trainer explained how they “would go through different combinations in a continuous manner so that every combative would blend into the next one.” Besides, even with a combat-oriented routine, Keri’s regimen it also a great form of cardio, as said by her trainer. Normally though, the actress favors simple exercises. “Everyone should dance more. Everyone should walk more,” she said in an interview before. She also added: “I do a workout video and use my own music – whatever is inspiring to me at that time, like Alabama Shakes, the Cure, or Mumford and Sons.”
