Kelly Ripa’s co-host, Michael Strahan, may not be an NFL star anymore, but that doesn’t mean he’s letting his focus on fitness fade away! The “Live with Kelly and Michael” host showed off his impressive bod with a snapshot from the gym on Monday. Trainer Latreal Mitchell tweeted the photo writing, “So proud of my client @michaelstrahan @KellyandMichael 4 maintaining 7% BF! Ready 4 summer! #ripped #lean #cleaneating."
But the talk show host hasn't always sported those rock hard abs. The 41-year-old daytime charmer opened up in the March 2013 issue of Men's Fitness about his past weight struggles and even admitted that his brothers used to pick on him for his size. "They'd laugh at me, and I didn't get it. I'm 13 years old at the time, and then one day my brother's friend says, 'You know what Bob stands for? Booty on back. You're fat.' Like my butt was so big I could reach for my wallet over my shoulder."
Who's laughing now? Michael used the teasing as motivation, started working out daily and now has a killer body! Check out the vid to see who became his workout buddy!
