Wanna know how Baby Daddy star Derek Theler got that shagalicious body? He worked out of course! He shared some of his fitness secrets in an interview with Men’s Fitness Magazine (mensfitness.com):
Men’s Fitness: How’d you get into fitness?
Derek Theler: 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!
Part of your success on Baby Daddy may have to do with your physique…
That is absolutely what I’m known for, and I think it’s in my contract that I have to have my shirt off every other episode. It’s funny because I actually am kind of embarrassed about it, but when I do come out of the bathroom wearing a towel for no reason (laughs) I try not to put it out there, but I work hard on looking as good as I can, and I’m young, so it’s something I guess I should be proud of.
What workout style do you prefer?
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.
If you have only one piece of fitness advice to give, what is it?
Be persistent! No one ever regrets working out. If you make the time, you’ll be proud of yourself. You never walk out of the gym saying, “I shouldn’t have done that.”
