How Gal Gadot got ripped to play Wonder Woman
A former model and Miss Israel winner, actress Gal Gadot has always been lean and mean. But being in great shape is one thing—having a superhero body is quite another, and in order to play the title character in DC's Wonder Woman after debuting in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gadot had to make her body a little less lean, and a whole lot meaner. As anyone who's ever bought a gym membership with great hopes and the best of intentions can tell you, making the leap from model to superhero is no easy feat… so how exactly did Gadot go from Miss Israel to the champion of Themyscira? Obviously, having access to Hollywood's best physical fitness professionals helped, but even the greatest trainer in the world can't transform your body if you don't put in the work yourself. Here's a look at just how Gal Gadot got in shape to play Wonder Woman.
