With Blunt’s hubby John Krasinski killing the Amazon Original Series “Jack Ryan”, I figured it was only fair to give her some space at SHJ as well.
She deserves it!
And not just because by my definition she’s a total babe, but also because she has definitely hit the big screen in superhero shape for her roles.
She literally came in jacked for Edge of Tomorrow and Sicario and continues to kill it on screen.
So it’s time to train like her.
Emily Blunt Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 120 lbs
Age: 35 years old
Emily Blunt is technically 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 5’7-5’8), 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!

Emily Blunt Diet and Nutrition
And they all look real good!
Lucky for us, there’s a ton of different sources that give us great information about the diet she started to get in this great shape we see.
Emirates Woman states in an interview with Blunt:
Due to Emily’s fast calorie-burning exercises, she began eating healthily and in moderation. Her diet was concentrated around carbohydrate-filled breakfasts, grain proteins and probiotics for lunch and dinner. “I wasn’t eating kale chips or anything, I was doing alright,” said Emily whilst speaking about her recent weight loss. She also opted for gluten-free options when possible and limiting herself to one cup of coffee a day (we couldn’t believe it either!)
They continue to even give us a sample dietary plan for Blunt:
EMILY DIET ADVICE
“My new healthy regime is basically trying to cut out things like pizza — I’m working out, and I’m cutting out pizza.”
EXAMPLE OF MEALS (BASED ON THE JASON WALSH PROGRAMME)
- Porridge with blackberries
- Brown toast (gluten-free if possible) with peanut butter
- Green tea
- Tuna salad with low fat dressing
- Miso soup with a brown roll (gluten-free if possible)
- Courgette lasagne with salad
- Salmon with steamed asparagus and broccoli
Seems easy enough, right?
Cut out things like pizza? How hard could it be?
Well the main thing we want to focus on is sustainability.
That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Minimalists, Vikings, Greek Gods, SuperHumans, Spartans, Samurais, Hunter Gatherers) are focused around finding the perfect diet for YOU.
In PopCulture Mag they tell us some examples of what Blunt cut from her diet:
Blunt completely cut four things from her diet: saturated fats, processed foods, high-sodium snacks and refined sugars.
The bottom line: if it’s processed, she avoids it.
Making it even more simple for us!
But, I’ll hit that good ol’ sustainability point one more time and suggest checking our our Nutrition Pillars right here on the site and reading through all the articles.
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Emily Blunt Workout Routine Research
Emily Blunt also has a pretty awesome workout routine.
She’s also completely open to sharing information about it.
Well, her and her awesome trainer, Jason Walsh.
Here’s the breakdown we get from Emirates Woman:
Emily’s trainer, Jason Walsh, uses a three-part circuit workout on all of his celebrity clients. He focuses on getting the heart rate up and toning your inner base strength.
The circuit lasts for 25-30 minutes (not including resting time) and requires easy-to-use equipment such as dumbbells, a small step and a pull-up bar. Emily made this part of her daily regime six days a week, dedicating two-and-a-half hours a day refining her core strength and admitted: “It was brutal at first and then became addictive.”
Walsh’s training session begins with 5-10 minutes of light cardio and stretches. Then the set is repeated three times with rests for 60 seconds between each. Certainly not for the faint hearted, Walsh also promotes Pilates and yoga, for up to two times a week.
Expect to see this circuit when we break down the whole routine…!
Some more quotes from Blunt shared by HollywoodLife.com regarding her fitness are:
“I’ve been working out more recently”
“I really like doing Pilates as well and yoga and all those lengthening exercises … probably like four, sometimes five times a week!”
“That’s a lot of cardio. It’s the most cripplingly difficult, [but] I actually enjoy it!”
And something I found really important from her trainer is:
WHEN YOU WERE TRAINING EMILY, WHAT DID SHE ENJOY DOING?
My experience has been that most people don’t really enjoy it in the beginning. I tell them what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. But to actually be doing it is a whole different thing. The first time you go out to the track feels like the hardest thing you’ve ever done. And then it becomes habitual. Then you get so damn strong and fast that it gets to a point where you’re just challenging yourself. That’s when it becomes fun.
It’s always hard in the beginning.
Remember that and push through!

Emily Blunt Workout Routine
3-6 days per week
When Blunt was training utilizing Jason Walsh’s circuits she was doing it six times a week. She also mentions doing pilates and yoga four or five times a week when she wasn’t utilizing the circuit. So, I’m going to give you the circuit to utilize multiple days a week, but also keep in mind you can pair in pilates, or even yoga (which we have in The Academy) if you’d like as well.
