Celebrity trainer Ramona Braganza is the woman that A-list actresses go to when they need to slim down for a role. Find out how she whipped celebs like Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway into shape for their catsuit close-ups.
Anne Hathaway looked purr-fectly toned and taut in her Catwoman getup recently in The Dark Knight Rises. So how do she and other catsuit-sporting actresses slim down for their sexy roles? The answer is celebrity trainer Ramona Braganza.
The 3-2-1 Method
Braganza puts the ladies through a rigorous schedule comprised of cardio, strength training, and core drills. She calls it the “3-2-1 Method.”
As a former competitive gymnast, fitness contestant and NFL cheerleader, Braganza really knows her stuff. She got her start in celebrity training while working with Jessica Alba back in her Dark Angel days.

Ramona’s favorite moves
- The pull-up: If you’re not strong enough, have a friend assist you or use a machine with weighted assistance.
- The push-up plank: This one is Anne Hathaway’s favorite! It works your chest muscles, shoulders and core all at once.
- Single-leg squat with bicep curl: Braganza likes doing compound moves to work multiple muscles at once and get a major calorie burn.
Braganza works in these moves between bouts of cardio and a core cool-down at the end.
