I told you to keep an eye out for an Umbrella Academy Workout that featured villains!
But I bet you didn’t expect one to hit the site so quickly after Luther Hargreeve’s Spaceboy Workout; am I right?
I happen to really like not only Hazel and Cha Cha’s character portrayal in Umbrella Academy Season One, but also their characters in the comics, from what I was able to dig up and read about them while deciding on the best character(s) to host here on the site.
I originally wanted to add some more celebrity workouts from Umbrella Academy (right now we really only have Tom Hopper’s Workout Routine), but hosting Luther with Hazel and Cha Cha proved to be the right decision.
If you’re not quite sure who they are just yet, sit back and relax, we’ll talk all about that in their research section.
Hazel and Cha Cha Stats:
Height: Cha-Cha: 6’5, Hazel: 6’0
Real Name: N/A
Hazel and Cha-Cha are quite tall, actually.
The heights are actually based on their Wiki Fandoms for The Netflix adaptation being that their character Wiki’s did not list anything!
Vegeta were tied Wolverine for the shortest spot among comic characters we’ve seen at 5’3, prior to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coming in at 5’2, (and Gimli even shorter) – but Damian Wayne (Robin) is only 5’4. Goku isn’t that tall either, though, standing only 5’7, with Miles Morales only an inch above him.
We’ve had Superman and Eddie Brock’s Venom at 6’3, and Captain America, Scorpion and Batman at 6’2, and Carnage at 6’1. Thor and Cyborg are towering over them at 6’6, Thanos and King right there with them at 6’7, Bane at 6’8, and Deathstroke right below at 6’5, and Black Manta at 6’4.
But, don’t worry if you’re not the same height or weight range.
We write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.

Hazel and Cha Cha Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like Hulk may get something specifically different)**
Every hero needs to still have a good diet.
Unfortunately we can train like them, but I don’t think any of us are suddenly getting their powers, or the ability to magically stop caring about nutrition.
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!
Curious where over a hundred celebs fall in their dietary choices ranging from High Protein and Keto to Vegetarian, Vegan and Intermittent Fasting? Want exclusive celeb meal plans? Check this out.

Hazel and Cha Cha Workout Routine Research
We’ve made it to “the fun part”.
And, if you don’t know by now, I say that every single time we get to the workout routine research section for character workouts.
We’ll start with a little bit of a biography for our Hazel and Cha Cha.
I’ll be pulling this from the character variation of their Wiki Fandoms (which means they may also overlap).
Here’s what Hazel’s Wiki Fandom has to tell us:
Hazel is a hitman, whose job is to keep the timeline safe and steady. He and his partner Cha-Cha are supposed to stop anything that isn’t supposed to happen from happening. They ensure that everything will play out like it was meant to.
Hazel is also a sucker for sugary treats. The duo of hitmen (who both wear cartoonish animal masks) are known for their love of delicacies, often taking time in-between their missions to feast on treats.
Hazel and Cha-Cha are trained hitmen who have carried out multiple murders. They live in and out of time, as they won’t grow old.
When he was dispatched on a mission that took him and Cha-Cha to a past Christmas, he left a trombone for his younger self as a Christmas present.
And Cha-Cha’s Wiki Fandom tells us this:
Cha-Cha is the partner in crime of Hazel. He is a highly dangerous hitman who works for a time-travel organization to eliminate people who “mess with the timeline”. He has a love for sugar, specifically donuts. He frequently complains about “Corporate” and the diminishing benefits of each job. When doing a job, he is seen wearing a blue and yellow bear mask with enormous eyes and a long toothy grin.
He is shown to have incredible strength and stamina, as well as having a high level of physical durability. He gets a lot of information out of witnesses by commanding that they “Elaborate.” In the Netflix series (under the name “Hazel”), he frequently toys with the idea of leaving behind the hitman life, proclaiming when watching HGTV that there’s “beauty in the mundane.” He has a crush on Agnes, the waitress at Griddy’s Donuts, the donut place he frequents visit.
It’s also important to note that in the Netflix adaptation of Umbrella Academy, Hazal and Cha-Cha’s gender is reversed.
So don’t be confused when we take a piece of Hazel’s Netflix Wiki below and I am referring to him as “he” instead.
Here’s what they tell us about Hazel’s powers and abilities (which Cha-Cha’s Wiki does not have anything listed):
Hazel is a professional hitman, a skilled hand-to-hand fighter, and gunslinger.
Although it’s never outright stated in the series, it is strongly suggested he is superhuman. He was able to take on Luther in a direct fight, and shrugged off getting stabbed by one of Diego’s knifes.
We work well with creating superhumans…
It’s kind of our job here!
So we’re going to be looking to turn into a professional hitman.
We have seen a Hitman workout here (Agent 47 Workout) at SHJ before, so I’m sure it’ll be functioning in a similar fashion.
For this one we’ll be combining mixed martial arts with the need to build some kind of super strength and endurance right there with parkour and assassin style training.
Think you can handle it?

Hazel and Cha Cha Workout Routine
5-6 days per week
In order to catch up to Hazel and Cha Cha you might have to actually train 7 days a week, and then some, considering they travel through time and don’t age, but for this one we’re going to need to recover from the high volume of training needed to get in assassin shape. You’ll be training 5-6 days a week with 3 days devoted to weight training and circuits, 2 days devoted to interval training and parkour, and then another 1-2 days devoted to mixed martial arts.
