Terry Crews Workout and Diet

Terry Crews is an impressive human specimen. His massive physique leads to questions that we are here to answer. We have the Terry Crews workout and diet regimen here for your consumption. You can be like Terry Crews. Just be prepared to dedicate the time, energy, and persistence that is required.

Terry Crews Personal Facts

Terry Crews has an impressive resume. He is a comedian, actor, Old Spice Man, and a former NFL football player. His run in the NFL required him to develop the rock hard physique and athleticism that he is famous for now.

When he moved into acting as a beloved comedian, he didn’t let the job change his approach to fitness. He’s the big guy with a bigger heart who gets a laugh every time. Off script, he’s also outspoken about the toxicity of masculinity and opens up about working on himself to be a better husband, father, and family man. Crews shows men, young and old, that there is a healthier way to be a male role-model. Can you tell I’m a fan?

Crews was born on July 30, 1968, in Flint, Michigan. Terry Crews is 6’3” tall and weighs approximately 245 pounds. 

So there are few people we’d love more to showcase than the talented, kind, and devoted Terry Crews. And while not everyone is destined to look like Terry (he’s just amazing!), his workout and diet program has something everyone can learn from.

Terry Crews Diet

Crews’ diet foundation starts with something we talk about a lot, intermittent fasting. He subscribes to strict rules about when he eats, and he’s been doing it for several years. For Crews, it’s part of his lifestyle now. You’ll see him talk about his fasts on his social media, mostly when he’s breaking a fast. Anyone who does IF knows how exciting breaking a long fast can be!


Crews has studied the cell renewal benefits (a process called autophagy.) The natural and long studied process comes from a Greek word that means to self-devour. It’s a great way to get your body to “clean house” of toxins and stress, with the added benefit of weight management.

Crews eats between 2 and 10 pm each day which is a popular 8-hour eating, 16-hour fasting approach. And while he doesn’t eat breakfast, he makes sure to get plenty of coffee and amino acid supplements while he fasts, even eating a spoonful of coconut oil when he’s really craving something during a fast.

Terry Crews Workouts

Crews can’t stay as fit as he does by diet alone. He puts the work in his workouts. His 5 days a week schedule feature aerobics, stretching, and weightlifting. He does 30 minutes of cardio and then stretching to start each workout. “The 24s” are what he calls his supersets. They include six reps of four moves, lifting 135 pounds. That’s his warm-up!

So after his warm-up, Crews starts his real workout. He breaks his workouts into parts of the body. For example, shoulders day includes Arnold presses, shoulder flyes, military presses, and shrugs. He’ll complete three sets of ten reps each (4). You can’t cheat and get that body!

Working Out Together

Terry Crews loves working out with people. Makes sense, he’s a people person and passionate about fitness. It’s a natural partnership!
