Caity Lotz’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

Parkour Powerhouse

Lotz digs doing parkour, which is where you tackle obstacles in an urban setting by jumping, climbing, etc. She does many of her own stunts in her acting roles.

Tricks Up Her Sleeve

Lotz is also into Tricking, which combines the flips and twists of gymnastics with dance moves. She has studied with Steve Terada and Wayne Dalglish.

Martial Arts Master

Lotz has done several styles of martial arts including Muay Thai and Krav Maga, but her latest love is Filipino martial arts which she says is more mental and has intricate choreography which helps her focus.

It’s All Connected

Lotz says recovery is just as important as exercise, and that tightness is one spot may cause soreness in another. She regularly uses a foam roller, or a DIY version with a couple of lacrosse balls in a sleeve.

Skills Practice

Lotz prefers activities such as martial arts or yoga that build skills rather than the standard gym workout.

There’s an App for That

When she does head to the gym, Lotz likes the fitness app Aaptiv which is audio-only and helps her decide what to do for her workout, instead of being overwhelmed by choice.

Pilates for Recovery

Lotz says her dad got her into Pilates. She calls it ‘rehab’ because it helps her correctly align her muscles and get a great stretch.

Caity Lotz’s Lifestyle

Pro Teen

Lotz got hired to dance professionally at age 17 in a music video. Because she was underage, she had to have a chaperone on set, which she says was incredibly embarrassing.

Late Bloomer

Lotz didn’t even consider acting training until she was in her 20s. Even then, she said she was more interested in the theory than dong it as a career. Then she fell in love with the work.

Get Moving

Hard Head

Foot Fetish

Lotz says she loves her feet. She says they’re beautiful, well-proportioned and strong, and that she can pinch people with her toes.

{

Lotz on Education

The sensory deprivation chamber has been the most important tool that I’ve ever used for developing my mind, for thinking, for evolving…. it’s just pure thought. It’s like the mind completely untethered from the body.

{

Lotz on Her Many Talents

‘Acting is my #1, but dancing will always be a part of who I am and in my heart. I love doing stunts when they are a part of my acting.’

{

Lotz on Being Blonde

‘The best part of being blonde is forgivable momentary lapses of common sense.’

{

Lotz on the Human Spirit

‘The power of the human spirit inspires me. Movies, books, stories, people, anything that reminds us that we are more than just this physical body, and our capacity for love and courage can bend reality.’’

{

Lotz on Herself

‘I’m pretty opinionated. I’ve never been told that I’m a weak person.’
