Jake Gyllenhaal recently shared insights into the rigorous training regimen he underwent to achieve his impressive physique for his role as Elwood Dalton in the upcoming remake of the 1989 hit film 'Road House.' The 43-year-old actor emphasized that his transformation was a collaborative effort that 'took a village' to accomplish.

Gyllenhaal acknowledged the crucial role played by his trainer, Jason Walsh, and chef, Paulette Tejeda, in helping him achieve his fitness goals. He also highlighted the support he received from a nutritionist, emphasizing the importance of a well-rounded approach to nutrition and fitness.

According to Gyllenhaal, his training routine included daily sessions lasting up to an hour and a half, with a focus on maintaining a balance between physical conditioning and energy levels required for the demanding role. He credited the team of professionals around him for providing constant support and guidance throughout the process.

The results of Gyllenhaal's dedication to his training are evident in previews of the film, where he portrays a former UFC fighter turned bar bouncer in the Florida Keys. The remake also features notable personalities such as Conor McGregor, Jessica Williams, Post Malone, and Daniela Melchior.

Expressing his gratitude to the original star of 'Road House,' Patrick Swayze, Gyllenhaal paid tribute to the late actor in an Instagram post, praising his talent and kindness. Swayze, who passed away in 2009, continues to be a source of inspiration for Gyllenhaal and others involved in the remake.

'Road House' is scheduled for release on Prime Video on March 21, offering audiences a fresh take on the beloved classic. Gyllenhaal's commitment to his role and the collaborative effort behind his physical transformation are sure to captivate viewers when the film premieres.
