The Transformation Of Morris Chestnut: From Movies To Muscle

Handsome Hollywood star and sex symbol, Morris Chestnut, has been making ladies swoon since his appearance in Boyz N The Hood back in 1991. Fast forward nearly 30 years and the handsome actor is married and has been for over twenty years and has two grown children in college now. But Morris doesn’t have your typical “dad-body” with love handles and a beer belly–well, at one time he actually did.

When Morris Chestnut hit the media circuit to promote the blockbuster movie, 2014’s The Best Man Holiday, Morris had transformed into an incredible chiseled man. But, the truth is that not long before shooting that film, Morris was in the worst shape of his life—35 pounds heavier than he should have been, over 220 pounds, avoiding the gym, and frequenting the drive-through.

Knowing he would be on screen again and with more skin showing this time, he turned to celebrity trainer Obi Obadike to help him turn things around in time for the movie–and the results speak for themselves. Morris went from 220 pounds to a lean and ripped 187 pounds in just 12 weeks, and audiences haven’t stopped raving about his new look—or asking how he achieved it.
