Robert Patrick is already in his 60s but he endeavors to continue his workouts despite injuries and his crazy schedule. “I’m developing more injuries as time goes by,” said the actor. “Every time I was jogging it flared up.” To remedy this, he works out with his orthopedist to guide him. He’s also traded jogging for fast treadmill walks. Aside from his treadmill exercises, he also tries to stay fit by riding a stationary bike, using a rowing machine, martial arts, and free weights.
