With the sixth season of CBS’ hit show How I Met Your Mother underway, it is about time we brought you the workout of the one-and-only Barney Stinson. Okay, so Barney’s actual workout routine is a bit of a mystery – but he certainly does not lack confidence with the ladies. For now we will settle for the workout and diet tricks of Neil Patrick Harris, the actor who plays Barney Stinson on the show. Good thing Neil is even more funny and charming than his television character!

When asked about fitting a workout into his busy schedule, Neil Patrick Harris joked, “I take circus classes now and again so I feel like I have some practical strength.” According to That’s Fit, Neil exercises at Cirque School in Los Angeles. Cirque School is a studio founded by former Cirque du Soleil performer Aloysia Gavre. Classes such as suspension training, handstands and partnering, aerial trapeze tricks, and juggling are taught daily. Don’t be afraid if you lack the flexibility or strength of an acrobat, Cirque School claims its classes are “for anybody with any body.”

In addition to his circus training, Neil Patrick Harris does cardio and strength workouts. He says, “I try to concentrate on posture, keeping my body as long as it can be. I’ve been doing more Pilates and yoga and trying to get into a real cardiovascular routine to increase my flexibility.”

Finally, although Neil is blessed with a high metabolism, he still follows a healthy diet. He says, “Eating smallish meals more often is best for me.” “If I eat a big breakfast, I suffer all day! I’m a grazer.” But the comedic gem has one weakness – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. He says, ” “When you eat one you automatically have to eat seven, why is that?” I couldn’t agree more!
