Rathbone's character, Jasper Cullen, is a war veteran. So to get ready for the fight scenes he has had to perform in all the Twilight movies, he was devoted to hardcore fight training. “I did two months of kung-fu training for The Last Airbender and then that actually parlayed really well going into Eclipse, so I had all the background training,” he told MTV. In addition to his fight training, the 27-year-old Rathbone—who admits that pepperoni pizza is the one fast food he can’t live without—has been spotted working out (and lugging around a medicine ball) with a personal trainer.
In this special-edition of The Fit 5, two mixed martial artists, Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner give us an inside look into living life as a pro fighter.
