Rachael Taylor is a total babe.
Coach Derek is trying to sell me on the fact that she digs him…
She is part of the awesome team that makes up our Marvel Netflix Originals. Those being Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Punisher, Jessica Jones, and the combination making up The Defenders.
All of which are freakin’ awesome.
And, we’ve seen a ton of their routines. If you want to check them out you just have to check out Charlie Cox, Mike Colter, Krysten Ritter, Jon Bernthal, Finn Jones, Elodie Yung, Jessica Henwick, Simone Missick and Rosario Dawson.
Okay, wow, seriously I had no idea we’ve covered that many until I typed it all out…
Rachael Taylor Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 126 lbs.
Age: 34 years old
Rachael Taylor is actually above average height for women celebs at SHJ.
I guess we’d consider her tall, but we’ve been seeing more and more around 5’7-5’8.
Normally the average height we see for women is around 5’4-5’6 with ladies such as Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, Olivia Munn, Alicia Vikander, Sophia Bush, Tatiana Maslany, Evangeline Lilly, and a ton of others.
But then there is also that taller range, and amongst the tallest (even taller than the 5’7), are ladies like Gwendoline Christie, Gal Gadot, and a few others – with Gabrielle Union, Brie Larson, Nina Dobrev, Daisy Ridley, and so many more coming in around that 5’7-5’8 range.
But, either way, don’t worry.
I write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone!

Rachael Taylor Nutrition and Diet
Rachael Taylor has been interviewed discussing how much she hated the “Hollywood Diet”.
She said at the time this diet consisted of “mostly salad and fresh air”.
In the same interview with Daily Mail UK she states:
‘I looked dreadful. It just wasn’t for me,’
And they continue by pointing out the obvious (but an obvious with a statement I feel necessary):
A life with carbs and the occasional sweet treat appears to be working well for the Tasmanian-born blonde who now looks better than ever.
We love carbs….sometimes…
No, really, I love carbs.
But Rachael Taylor making the decision to go back to a lifestyle that consists of what she likes is exactly what we strive for at SHJ: sustainability.
That’s why all our Academy Nutrition Classes (Vikings, Monks, Greek Gods, Hunter Gatherers, Spartans, Samurais, SuperHumans, Minimalists) revolve around finding the dietary guidelines that work for YOU.
So go ahead and check out the Nutrition Pillars on the site as well and try different plans out until you figure out what is right and which one goes with your flow.
But, wait, there’s more!
Coach Derek also shared another article with me that I want to share some information from.
Rachael Taylor tells us all about her morning routine and diet:
“On a non filming day, I wake up around 7:00am, but if we’re shooting Jessica Jones or The Defenders, it can sometimes be as early as 4:00am. When not shooting, I have the kettle on by 7:20, and begin my day with a large cup of tea, usually green or dandelion. If its 4:00am, I go to a good old fashioned English Breakfast with milk—I grew up on it like all Aussies so it’s the only thing I can stomach at that hour! I try to eat organic where possible and my go-to meals for breakfast are often light such as fresh cut up fruit, or bircher muesli with yoghurt and nuts, organic eggs on toast and avocado—just something healthy.”
Pretty freakin’ cool, eh?
I think we’re ready to workout.
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Rachael Taylor Workout Routine Research
Continuing on with the article from Harpers Bazaar that gave us that awesome nutrition info, we also get some good information about Rachael Taylor’s workout routine as well.
Taylor continues by telling us:
“I change into my workout gear, which usually consists of exercise tights and some sneakers. I’m out of the house by 8:00am, and that’s when I grab a coffee, usually a short black with a dash of almond milk. At 9:00am, I start my training session with Julian Chua, my boxing coach. I have been really dedicating myself to my Martial arts training the past few years. It started for Jessica Jones, now I do it for me.”
Which is awesome because we have a full program from Krysten Ritter’s routine we’re going to be able to utilize for this one as well.
Thanks again Coach Derek!
She finished off discussing her workout regime by stating:
“We usually do a 45 minute session in the ring, with some weights and cardio drills on either side to warm up and cool down. It’s just the two of us, and the gloves. It’s the most empowering feeling getting in there and knowing it’s all down to you and your mental and physical strength. The thing I love about Julian is he is training me as a fighter, not as an actor getting fit for a role, or as a person who wants to get in shape, but as an equal—so it doesn’t matter what I wear, it will end up drenched in sweat anyway! I am stronger, more muscular, and more confident. It’s the internal benefit for me that is the bonus.”
And I think that’s enough motivation from Rachael Taylor.
I’m ready…are you?

Focus Mitts with Partner:
- Verbal call-out
- Call out *JAB!* and flash them the mitt, or call out *DOUBLE-JAB!,CROSS!
- don’t say anything, simply flash them the mitt and they are supposed to hit it as soon as possible.
- You can flash one mitt and then as soon as they hit it, you flash them the other mitt.
- Defense then counter
- You call out a defense maneuver then give him the counter-jab opportunity. (EX: call out *SLIP, THEN JAB*, *SLIP & JAB TO THE BODY*
- There can also be moments where you throw a punch at them without calling it out. Make sure they are ready to defend at all times.
- Then throw a punch at them and immediately afterwards flash them a counter-jab opportunity.
- Everything together now (verbal, auto, and defense)
- You call out *JAB!*, then throw a counter at them after they punch, then quickly flash them a counter-jab opportunity.
- You call out a jab to the head or body, then give them another jab opportunity, then throw a counter at him at the end to test their defense.
- Combination punching drills (TECHNIQUE & POWER)
This is where beginners start to have fun but can get a little careless. The most important thing is to stay ready and relaxed at all times. Practice good punching technique . Power comes from relaxed effortless release, not because you shove all your might through every punch. Also important to snap your punches, instead of pushing them through.
When calling out combinations, call out numbers since it’s faster than yelling, “JAB, RIGHT CROSS, LEFT HOOK, RIGHT CROSS!”
