Per­sonal trainer Fabrice “le Physique”—his nick­name from his mod­el­ling days­— works with ev­ery­one from celebs to CEOs in his Lon­don, England, gym. The cost of one ses­sion: up to $2,000. So what makes a mil­lion-dol­lar body? We break it down. 60: The av­er­age num­ber of sec­onds de­voted to each move in Fabrice’s high-in­ten­sity in­ter­val train­ing (HIT) rou­tine. HIT

is a com­bi­na­tion of car­dio and weight train­ing fol­lowed by a short rest; the body con­tin­ues to burn calo­ries for a few hours af­ter the work­out, which is known as “ex­cess post-ex­er­cise oxy­gen con­sump­tion.” 8: The num­ber of mus­cle groups Fabrice tries to en­gage in one ex­er­cise, which he says leads to faster re­sults. Try weighted squats: Squat un­til you are par­al­lel to the floor. When you stand up, squeeze glutes, quads and ham­strings. 60: The per­cent­age

of your max load (the weight you can barely fin­ish one rep with) to use for weight train­ing. Try not to count reps. In­stead, do as many as you

can un­til you get tired.
