We described how Henry Cavill got into shape to play the “Man of Steel,” but now we have some footage of the man at work in the gym. In this video, which was part of a National Guard campaign, we get a glimpse of Cavill at work with trainer Mark Twight.

Cavill is effusive in his praise of Twight during the video. “Mark [Twight] is probably one of the most incredible people I’ve met,” he says. “He’s opened my eyes to seeing past what I thought were my limits. He’s a remarkable man, truly. He understands what I’m going through physically. He understands me because he sees what I’m going through as a person, which I think is what makes him such a good trainer.”

The 30-year-old also speaks of how working out helped him channel strength that he did not know he had. “100 percent, the training has been a journey of discovery, just like Superman’s journey of discovery. Superman learned he could fly, I learned I could do all sorts of things in the gym that I never thought possible. It is not just a physical thing but a psychological thing as well.”
