Anna Paquin has been working hard with her trainer Clay Burwell. Anna’s workouts typically two-hour-long sessions that combine boxing, plyometrics, and strength training.

Self Magazine recently covered Anna Paquin’s Workout, discussed below, which helped her look sexy naked for this season of True Blood.
