Taylor Swift followed intense treadmill training for Eras Tour

Taylor Swift followed intense treadmill training for Eras Tour

The singer has to be on top form to perform for three-and-a-half hours every night

Taylor Swift busts her butt off every night of her record-breaking 'Eras Tour'. Now, she has revealed how she trained for it with intense treadmill workouts.

Earlier this month, Taylor Swift was named TIME's Person of the Year for 2023.

The 'All Too Well' singer beat out Barbie, Vladimir Putin and King Charles for the prestigious title, which deemed her the most influential person in the world throughout the past 12 months.

One massive factor in Swift's victory is undoubtedly 'The Eras Tour.'

The blockbuster tour kicked off this summer and is set to continue through the end of next year. It has been named the highest-grossing tour of all time and is the first tour in history to surpass $1 billion in revenue.

During each performance, the 34-year-old hitmaker sings, dances, and struts along a stage the length of a football field as she performs 44 songs from her extensive discography.

She recently revealed just how she gets through the three-and-a-half hour affair every night - and it's absolutely insane.

In her interview with TIME announcing the honour, Swift said: "Every day I would run on the treadmill, singing the entire set list out loud. Fast for fast songs, and a jog or a fast walk for slow songs."

She started her intense workout regime at New York gym, Dogpound, six months before the start of the tour.

In addition to her lengthy sessions on the treadmill — which amount to the same amount of time it takes to run a marathon — the 'Cruel Summer' singer's trainers also crafted a custom plan that incorporated weight lifting, strength training and other forms of conditioning.

She also added 'three months of dance training' into the mix.

"I wanted to get it in my bones," she explained. "I wanted to be so over-rehearsed that I could be silly with the fans, and not lose my train of thought.

"Learning choreography is not my strong suit."

The singer has revealed she'd sing her entire set list whilst running on a treadmill to prepare for the tour.

And, aside from a brief, tipsy night out at the 2023 Grammy Awards, Swift has cut out alcohol for the duration of the tour. Given the amount of courage it takes to simply get out of bed following a night of heavy drinking, you really can't blame her.

"Doing that show with a hangover," she told TIME. "I don't want to know that world."

As for what she gets up to between performances, Swift devotes her time to rest and recovery.

"I do not leave my bed except to get food and take it back to my bed and eat it there," she said. "It's a dream scenario."
