Jordan told Men’s Fitness he works out at Mansion Fitness in West Hollywood. Michael B. Jordan says he trains with (former boxer) Corey Calliet. His trainer talks about Jordan’s transformation into Adonis “Donnie” Johnson Creed (the son of Apollo Creed), saying:

The moment we knew we succeeded in the transformation was when Sly Stallone came in, checked him out and was like, WOW!


Michael B. Jordan’s trainer took his workouts to a whole new level by mixing boxing workouts, with a traditional 3-Day Split. To become the son of Apollo Creed, transforming Jordan’s body was a tall order.

Michael B. Jordan’s workout routine was up to the task. In fact, Jordan gained 24 pounds for the role. In order to get in the best shape of his life for Creed, Jordan says:We worked out all-day, every day for 4 to 5 months. Now, it’s down to 3 hours, split between lifting and cardio.

Legs & Shoulder Routine

Scroll to top

Michael B. Jordan’s trainer would mix in speed boxing moves while weight training. For example, after a heavy legs set they would put on the gloves and pads. In these sets, the goal is for Jordan to start slow. But, he quickly picks up speed.

This adds a cardio element into the middle of his workout plan. This mix of lifting/intervals is the best way to burn fat. Gaining muscle from heavy lifting is the primary goal. But, they always found time to get in some extra cardio. This helped chisel Michael B. Jordan’s body.
