At 6’6″ and a solid 255 pounds, actor, director, producer and multimedia mogul Tyler Perry became a household name by playing the rambunctious-but-loveable grandmother, Madea. The character Madea is slightly overweight, eats a variety of fried foods, and doesn’t workout much. But in real life, Perry is just the opposite.
Perry recently lost 30 pounds for one of his Hollywood roles. With the assistance of a trainer, his hour-long morning circuits include cardio and various types of strength moves. He also practices Krav Maga, an Israeli martial art he initially learned for one of his movie’s fight scenes.
