With filming for “X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2″ around the corner, Hugh Jackman will again be transforming his body into that of the superhero Wolverine. And now a lucky fan can sweat next to him. Jackman is auctioning the chance for one lucky fan to join him for a heart-pounding Wolverine Workout with celebrity trainer Don Scott at a private gym.

Jackman is raising funds for The Global Poverty Project. The GPP has teamed up with charitybuzz to raise funds for its 1.4 Billion Reasons campaign, which inspires everyday people to join the global movement to end extreme poverty through a powerful presentation. Jackman was recently a speaker at the nonprofit’s screening event at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

Bidding is open through November 11th at: http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/209202?source=carousel
