The Spartacus Cast Gets Ready at Boot Camp

The cast of Starz’ Spartacus is getting ready for another action-packed season by attending the special Spartacus Boot Camp. The intensive four week training helps the cast and stunt performers prepare for production on the upcoming season, with the cast getting into “Gladiator shape.”

“Meticulous choreographing is necessary to ensure the safety of the actors performing the stunts,” stated stunt coordinator Allan Poppleton, the man in charge of the Spartacus boot camps. “For four weeks, we work the cast to the point of exhaustion, combining cross training elements- everything from cardio, basic gymnastics, foot and movement work, unarmed combat, body awareness, reactions, weaponry, and functional cross fit circuits.”

“Lean and mean is the result required” added Poppleton, “but it also helps form an amazing bond between myself, the actors and stunt performers.”

Say the series star, Liam McIntyre: “Spartacus Boot Camps are famous now for pushing you to your absolute limits. This year they found a new level with military inspired training. I’ve never been so fit in my whole life. This boot camp will kick your ass. This year it kicked it twice.”
