Florence Pugh is a total babe.
Like total mega babe.
I just saw Fighting with My Family and I’m convinced they were just messing with me by trying to make it like she wasn’t the hottest one out of all the chicks going out for the WWE.
And, for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about: it’s a story of WWE Star Paige’s journey into the WWE and how she was so different and made fun of. Unfortunately, they might have been making fun of Florence Pugh for the sake of the movie, but she blew the “models” and “cheerleaders” out of the dang water.
Oh, she’s also been in Lady Macbeth, Malevolent, Outlaw King, and more!
Her rise to stardom is just beginning, and I’m all about it.
Florence Pugh Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 122 lbs.
Age: 23 years old
Florence Pugh falls right in the average range of women we’ve seen.
On the shorter side, but still right in the average nonetheless.
Normally the average height we see for women is around 5’4-5’6 with ladies such as Jennifer Aniston, Margot Robbie, Olivia Munn, Alicia Vikander, Sophia Bush, Tatiana Maslany, Evangeline Lilly, and a ton of others.
But then there is also that taller range, and among the tallest (even taller than the 5’7-5’8), are ladies like Gwendoline Christie, Gal Gadot, and a few others – with Phoebe Tonkin, Gabrielle Union, Brie Larson, Nina Dobrev, Daisy Ridley, and so many more coming in around that 5’7-5’8 range.
But, either way, don’t worry.
I write these routines for anyone and everyone.

Florence Pugh Diet and Nutrition
Florence Pugh’s diet and nutrition is pretty unknown.
From what I could find, she does not follow a strict eating plan, and just sustains her physique eating “normal”.
That being said, there is some information I can share that will tell you a bit more.
The first thing is from Daily Mail UK. They tell us:
While she admitted the scenes were difficult to film, Florence vowed to continue to portray ‘real bodies’ on screen, in order to avoid stereotype and provide an unrealistic view.
She added: ‘For me, I really appreciate seeing real bodies on screen, that variation, not the same frames we saw for the majority of our upbringing making us feel like was have to look that way.’
Next on the list is the fact that she was put through a CrossFit regime for her training for Fighting with My Family.
This is only relevant because CrossFit generally tends to go hand-in-hand with the Paleo diet.
There’s no information out there saying she also dieted for the role, and she may have been training strictly for conditioning, but I wanted to share regardless.
Either way, it seems Pugh sticks to a simple and sustainable diet.
We see a lot of celebs opt for a sustainable approach like this.
That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Minimalists, SuperHumans, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Greek Gods, Samurais) revolve around helping you find the specific diet that is right FOR YOU.
Of course, there are a lot of reasons to HAVE the strict guidelines.
We’ve seen a lot of celebs opt for specific restrictions.
For example: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting(something I use daily as well), Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
And, that’s just to name a few celebs from each, by the way.

Florence Pugh Workout Routine Research
I am purposely using a picture of Florence Pugh in Fighting with My Family because from what I’ve found that is where the main, and possibly only, training regime she’s taken part in was because of.
But before we even get into the specifics of training, it’s also fun to note that Pugh states:
“That was probably the most exciting job partly because they actually let me wrestle, which is very rare for films to actually let me do any of the physical stuff, but they did,” she told WENN/Cover Media. “They let me get thrown down and flipped over and it was amazing.”
Mark that down for activity and calorie burning.
Going further with that and talking about some actual training we have some information from Refinery 29:
Pugh’s next big role is as the Norwich-raised international wrestler Paige in Stephen Merchant’s new film Fighting With My Family, which as well as being worlds away from Lady Macbeth, also helped her discover a new hobby – CrossFit. She was put through a “pretty intense” training regimen for the part, which involved a lot of “people chucking themselves on you and you being able to carry them”. She laughs, “It’s not like I now go around saying ‘yeah, I lift’, but I like to feel strong. If my body is strong then it’s awesome.”
Apparently she discovered a new hobby, which leads us to believe she plans on continuing.
She does mention that she doesn’t go around saying she lifts, so this might not be an everyday thing, but it does seem to be something she’ll continue to utilize.
We’ve definitely seen quite a few celebs use CrossFit type training methods within their programming, and it’s definitely something that seems like it would be useful for the type of story, training and scenes they portray in Fighting with My Family.
Looks like we’ll be programming some basic CrossFit!
