Dakota Johnson did a lot to keep herself fit for the Fifty Shades franchise. With the final film in the trilogy set to premiere in a few weeks, the actress opened up about her rigorous workout routine and how she stayed trim for Fifty Shades Freed.

Johnson Reveals Workout Plans

According to Pop Sugar, Johnson followed a strict workout plan that was set up by Ramona Braganza, who worked with the actress on set. Braganza revealed that she had Johnson doing workouts that focused on cardio and core training.

The goal was to get Johnson’s posture in shape for long scenes and accentuate her tiny waist. Based on how Johnson has looked in the past two films, Braganza’s advice has really paid off.

“For this particular workout, when doing the cardio segments, we [used] the rowing machine: a powerful cardio [machine], which is great for warming up the back, shoulders, and arms while using core muscles to stabilize the body.”

Johnson Promotes Fifty Shades Freed

Johnson is currently promoting the release of Fifty Shades Freed with her co-star Jamie Dornan. The two appeared this week at a press conference in Hollywood and looked absolutely stunning together.

Johnson showed off her slim frame in a light blouse while Dornan rocked a casual look with a white t-shirt and dark jacket. The event is one of many for Johnson and Dornan over the next few weeks as they prepare for the premiere of the final film in the hit erotic franchise.
