Two cosplay workout routines in a row?
Yup! We’re back on track.
Yesterday we had Gray Fullbuster’s workout routine, and now it’s time for Lucy Heartfilia’s workout!
For the last few weeks we’ve been focusing mainly on home training and calisthenics work (seeing gymnasts and other specific training styles) for everyone stuck at home (and these two workouts will still be home based), but I wanted to get us back into some fun “normal” routine stuff as well.
For those of you who missed some of our newer stuff pertaining specifically to training from home you can check out our Ultimate Calisthenics Workout & Guide to find all of our resources, workouts, and the ultimate workout!
If you don’t already know, this is our new category that I announced I’ll be starting due to the high demand in cosplayers we have hitting the site, but it’s also an opportunity for me to give you secondary options to the main character workouts that will be slightly more generic and beginner-intermediate oriented; whereas the character workouts get pretty high volume when we begin talking about our overpowered characters!
Lucy Heartfilia Stats:
Weight: 103.6 lbs.
Real Name: Lucy Heartfilia
Anime: Fairy Tail
Lucy is very light, but actually not all that short.
She would technically be considered average height among female celebrities that we’ve seen at SHJ.
Supergirl and Erza Scarlet were our shortest at 5’5 before Wasp came in at 5’4 and Kale, Anna and Nina Williams matching her there. BUT, now we have Caulifla at 4’8 and Sailor Moon at 4’11! Katana is just behind her at 5’2.
But the average height for female celebrities on the site is generally more-so ranging from 5’4-5’6 – and our Black Widow is just above that at 5’7 with Spider-Gwen, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy at 5’8.
But don’t worry, either way.
Not only are these routines for all shapes and sizes – they also work for both men and women – regardless of the gender of the hero!

Lucy Heartfilia Diet and Nutrition
This is normally where (in the character workouts at least) I’d throw you guys a nice copy paster to give you some links to awesome dietary guidelines.
The celebrity workouts get their own custom planning based around what that celebrity does, but the characters are very contingent on specific goals/starting points.
The same is going to be done here, but I’m going to be making some changes to help you out a little bit more. So I’m going to start by suggesting what I think is the best Superhero Program for this cosplay if you choose to step it up a notch. Of course, you can really step it up a notch and join our Academy to get access to everything we have to offer, but if not, you might want to check out The Program Shop for other options or even take The Program Selection Quiz to help you out.
Either way, my suggestion would be: The Ladies Glutes, Tone & Slim Vol. 2
Which brings us to our information from the character workouts if you’re looking to go the free-route (which is totally fine):
You can’t out train your diet, so I want to still give some pillars for nutrition.
You can start by checking out The Nutrition Pillars on the site, but I’ll break down some more information for you guys as well.
Guys like Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Tom Hopper, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting (something I use daily as well), Ariana Grande, 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.
It’s all about sustainability.
AND, there are a thousand different ways to reach your goals, so finding the most sustainable way is what’s important.
Which is why our Academy utilizes multiple different Nutrition Classes (Greek Gods, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Monks, Samurais, Minimalists, SuperHumans) to allow people to choose what is right for YOU!
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!
Lucy Heartfilia Cosplay Information (and Options)
Now it’s time to not transform your body, but rather your attire.
That’s right, it’s the NEW fun part.
As you can tell from the picture above (and throughout the article as well), Lucy Heartfilia cosplay has a few different options.
You can definitely have some fun with this.
Here’s some suggestions, and I tried to diversify it:
- Lucy Heartfilia Cosplay Option One
- Lucy Heartfilia Wig
- Lucy Heartfilia Whip
- Lucy Heartfilia Cosplay Option Two
And there you have it.
Along with this killer workout I’m going to build for you to turn you into Lucy Heartfilia, these are our favorite options for her outfit.

Lucy Heartfilia Workout Routine Information (and Research)
So we have some more fun (although may not as much) in this section.
Here I’ll be giving you a bit of a bio and also utilizing what we’ve discussed in the section above (and some more) to break down what we’ll be looking to achieve with this workout routine I’ll be building for you.
Similar to Gray Fullbuster, Lucy’s Wiki Fandom page has a very, VERY brief bio and dives right into appearance.
For the sake of this being a cosplay guide and our training specifically built around her physique and appearance, it’s not all that bad; but I figured I’d warn you and let you know why I’m skimping you out on a big bio that you may be used to!
Here’s what we have from her Wiki Fandom:
Lucy Heartfilia is a Mage of the Fairy Tail Guild, wherein she is a member of Team Natsu.
Like I said, very brief!
But we do have a bit of useful information for her appearance:
Lucy has brown eyes and shoulder-length blonde hair that is usually tied by ribbons in a variety of colors in a small ponytail to the right side of her head with the rest of the hair loose. However, in the year X791 she appears to keep her hair up more often in pigtails. She is buxom and has a curvaceous body. In X792, her hair is considerably longer, and she keeps it all in a side ponytail.
Her pink Fairy Tail stamp is located at the back of her right hand. Additionally, Lucy does not consistently wear the same outfit. However, she always has a belt that, along with keeping her skirt up, holds her Celestial Spirit keys and a whip with a heart-shaped end. She often wears black, leather high heeled boots. She also bears a striking resemblance to her mother.
They do mention the fact that Lucy has a “curvaceous body” which means we will be not only focusing in on obtaining her petite, lean physique, but also adding in some glute and extra work for the curves.
For the sake of the cosplay that I suggest I will focus in on a couple things:
- Fat Loss and Petite Physique
- Work on Curves in Hips and Glutes

Lucy Heartfilia [Cosplay] Workout
3-5 days per week
Similar to Gray Fullbuster’s routine we’ll be building Lucy’s to revolve around 3 days of training and then 2 days of added cardio. The difference will be within the 3 days of training that specifically targets toning and curves for the ladies (and the fact that these 3 days will be the same for this routine); and also the simplification of the HIIT training to keep us at a beginner level.
When we do our celebrity and character workouts we base the difficulty level off of their routines/their powers. For this one it’s just a judgement call on how I believe we can best get you looking like each character. For that reason I’m providing a level for each.
