For most celebrities, maintaining a picture-perfect bod is just another requirement of living their lives in the public eye. While many A-listers choose to sweat out those excess calories by hitting the pavement, the yoga studio or the gym, many are now opting to sculpt their physiques by stepping into the ring. From slipping on boxing gloves and throwing punch after punch like Kevin Hart to training in mixed martial arts like Wiz Khalifa, staying fighting fit is a top priority for many celebs.
Instead of simply treating his time in the ring as a means to bulk up his notoriously skinny frame, Wiz instead embraced the fighting community as a whole and transformed his life in the process. “The fighting community is really cool,” he admits. “All of the fighters that I meet, or anybody that I train with, they’re super forward with the knowledge and really cool as far as teaching technique and combos. Nobody is really aggressive and wants to fuck you up too bad. They be getting some people in the gym who be acting a little crazy. But for the most part, everyone that I’ve run into, whether that would be professional or on their own situation, they’ve been really, really cool and accepting of me doing my thing and wanting to further my knowledge.”
