Stretch it out! Mascitti had Ellis in the gym up to an hour a day, five to six days a week, requiring the star to stay limber. Equally important: a strict diet of protein and veggies. Says Mascitti: “I didn’t let him eat bread.”

Ellis’s dedication would impress any athlete. “He made me [train him over] FaceTime — on my birthday when I was in Mexico!” laughs Mascitti, who works with Ellis’s costars Kevin Alejandro and Lesley-Ann Brandt too.

Instead of crunches and other core work, Mascitti employed high-intensity interval training and isometrics to tone the 6-foot-3 star. Ellis himself wanted big arms: “Now I feel like his biceps are [great]!” says Mascitti.
