Hollywood star J.K. Simmons’ incredible transformation

J.K. Simmons goal for his role in the movie, Whiplash, was to have ‘sick arms.’

It’s fair to say, based on new pictures of the 61-year-old Oscar-winning actor, that he achieved his goal.   Every time we train together I forget he’s 61 years old. So much respect for this guy. #JKSimmons #OldManCranking (hashtag via @mountaindog1)A photo posted by Aaron Williamson (@aaronvwilliamson) on Jun 2, 2016 at 8:52pm PDT

His trainer, former Marine, Aaron Williamson, who has worked on movies including Terminator Genisys, Fantastic Four, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Django Unchained, spoke to Hollywood Reporter about Simmons’ impressive results.    A photo posted by Aaron Williamson (@aaronvwilliamson) on Jun 7, 2016 at 5:46pm PDT

“For Terminator, he wanted to just keep himself healthy while filming,” Williamson revealed. “And somehow during the course of him getting ready for Whiplash he wanted to take things to the next level. He has another trainer in Los Angeles.    He’s making me look bad. #JKSimmons #AintPlayinNoGamesA photo posted by Aaron Williamson (@aaronvwilliamson) on Apr 30, 2016 at 10:15am PDT

“She’s not the same type of trainer that I am, so we complement each other. He started doing this cardio strength-training class with her and dropped a lot of weight. He started to fall in love with the fitness lifestyle. Where I come into play is now that he’s at this point we are giving him muscles he didn’t have before. His motivating factor with a lot of it is to do something with his arms and shoulders to be able to possibly down the road play a character who can wear a tank-top.”

A tank-top and then some.   Saturday morning, 61 years old & making the young generation jealous. This is what dedication looks like. #JKSimmonsA photo posted by Aaron Williamson (@aaronvwilliamson) on Apr 23, 2016 at 3:06pm PDT

“When you look at him in the gym people are literally doing double-takes,” Williamson said, laughing.

“They can’t believe that’s him. He’s doing such a good job of being disciplined and staying dedicated to doing something he hasn’t done before with his physique. He’s ripped. He’s more shredded than I am.”

As well as turning into a gym junkie, Simmons played around with his diet.

“He’s been experimenting over the past couple of years with different foods,” Williamson said.

“A lot of low-carb stuff, lean proteins, a lot of vegetables. Every day might be a little different for him. He eats every three hours. What he calls his ‘secret weapon’ is a little piece of dark chocolate. He eats one square every day.”
