Standing at 6’5 and weighing 240 pounds, it’s hard not to notice television star Derek Theler. Talking about his fitness in an interview, he shared how he was required to take care of his body since he was young because of a medical problem. He said:
“I’m actually a Type 1 diabetic, so growing up, I had to eat pretty healthy. My father was really big into weightlifting, and I picked it up pretty quickly. I wound up getting my degree in sports medicine and nutrition because I wanted to work in the medical field. But I wound up taking a trip to Los Angeles and decided being an actor sounds pretty cool, too. So now it’s a part of my job to look as good as I can!”
When asked about the kind of workouts that he likes, he said: “I’m definitely an outdoorsy guy. I like hiking, outdoor workouts with body weight. But when it comes to getting it done, I can just get in the gym and pound it out.” His advice when it comes to working out is persistence!
