Timbaland Shows His Home Gym & Fridge | Gym & Fridge | Men’s Health

(knocking on door) – [Interviewer] Hey Timbaland, open up. – What’s up? (bell dinging) I know why y’all here. Y’all here to see my gym, my fridge. That’s what I want y’all to see come on. ♪ I’mma kill this beat
like it’s not live ♪ ♪ If you knew me ♪ ♪ y’all would probably
be up in your top five ♪ (upbeat hip-hop music) ♪ I’m bring sexy back ♪ ♪ Miss don’t really give a damn ♪ (gentle music) – [Interviewer] All right
Tim, show us that fridge. – Well, health is well. Right now, I just do as
a body builder would do. They eat very plain Jane. There’s no taste. You’re not eating for taste. You’re eating for it to be fuel, for your body to keep going. A day of eating look like for me, I get prep meals, which
will look like this. They’ll deliver it to me. It’s a difference when you’re
trying to hit a destination. You have to be on-point, very precise. Which I like to be, because
I’m very focus minded. I don’t like to break or bend the rules. – [Interviewer] What do you
always keep in your fridge? – What I always keep in my fridge is a gallon of water, Alkine water. And I put a little amino and lemon and the amino help me
from not gettin’ sore, keep me hydrated, be able
to work out the next day. And as you see I keep another
one prepared for the next day. – [Interviewer] What do you
put in your protein shake? – Sometimes I use this for protein shake. Pineapples, cantaloupe, and just kiwi and strawberries
to give it a little flavor, and I add some kale to it
to give it that thickness. Oh, this the baby spinach, either one. – [Interviewer] Do you
ever have a cheat meal? – You know, once I started to
train I always look at food as fuel, so I don’t miss nothing. I would like to have something sometimes. Maybe like a Krispie Kreme
or a crispy chicken sandwich you know stuff like that,
but I don’t need it. Like I don’t crave it and
the only time that it gets me is when we got to the movie theaters, ’cause we go to this
certain movie theater, CMX, and just like you gotta
order something off the menu. So, I try to order a salad, knowing that’s the only healthy thing, that’s really probably not
healthy that I’m gonna get. – [Interviewer] It’s no secret that you’ve struggled with weight issues. Tell us about your fitness journey. – Okay, my turning point
for getting really healthy was just how I would look
at pictures and I’m like, no way. One time I was looking at a girl and I looked at my breast
and I looked at her breast and I’m like we both can. You know what I’m saying, I can suck yours, you can suck mine. That just can’t. And then it’s just like I knew through all what was under the fat, I
knew what I could look like. I always saw this vision and
that vision stayed in my head. And then I went to the doctor. The doctor say you almost have diabetes. You gotta lose weight, you gotta do this, your sugar’s high, just
certain little things. It was a point in my life
where I was very in the dumps. I was on drugs, prescription drugs. I beat that, I did it. Nobody can really help you
unless you help yourself. I know that I didn’t get to be Timbaland without the perseverance that
I always had instilled in me and with that being said,
I just had to straighten up and I really did a two year 360 and just went like when I set
my mind to something I go. I went through the shakes
and just gotta beat it. You gotta go through it
and I went through it. I’m not gonna say it went through easy, but because I knew, I had all the know how and had God’s help, I
knew that I could beat it. So, everything was, I’m
not gonna say smooth, it was tolerable, like I did it. Got off of that, never went back to drugs in five, six years. Then I just started getting my body right and my health right, eating right, stopped going to restaurants, stopped doing all these other
things, and just aligned myself in the way I was
supposed to be aligned and just be very healthy. – [Interviewer] Wow, sounds like fitness has changed your life. – I believe that it helped me to be more focused on my business. To be sharper, because
I use to have a problem of getting up, going, being, on time. Now, I’m the earliest person to the place. So, it changed my whole
outlook of Timbaland. You know, when you’re
on narcotics you kinda, for me messed up relationships, had to go back and repair relationships, because your not in the,
I’m in the sunken place. When you’re in the sunken
place, it’s not you. That demon inside of you
just talkin’ for you. So, I just understand what
life is for as an artist, it helps me create better,
it helps me think better, new ideas, and it helps me find
the next thing just like me. Like another producer or
another hot kid that’s going. It makes me not focus on just Tim. It makes me understand what
the brand of Timbaland is. The kids called me a legend. So, Timbaland was the guy who
did the most prolific beat to make people dance. So, now I have all these kids
under me who does the same. It made me sharp as a business person and understand my value, because I don’t believe
that I understood my value when I was the other Tim. So, now when I look at myself, I always call myself Nutty Professor, Professor Clump is gone. He’s almost gone, all the,
and Buddy Love is coming. It’s coming, he’s coming, but not the attitude of Buddy Love, but you know the swag of Buddy Love. – [Interviewer] Do you
ever use any supplements? – Supplements. Because I was a pill popper, I try not to take to many supplements. I Just provide on the protein shake and the amino’s that you
saw in my water earlier. That’s really it,
protein and some cinnamon and of course I take flax seed oils, fish oil, multivitamin. All right, guys so y’all know my routine. So, now we gonna do the hard part. You saw my fridge, saw
what I do, saw the house. Now we going to the gym, the real house. (claps) Let’s go. What’s up, what’s up? My goals is to look like a action figure. You see all these great
people who work out here? See all that? I got to be on that wall? Not as an athletes, but just as Tim. – [Interviewer] You’ve had
a long and successful career and you’re still making music. How do you keep yourself motivated? – There ain’t no such thing
as not being motivated. I’m always motivated. The gym is like your natural drugs. To some people it’s like
having coffee in the morning. So, me not going to the gym, that’s not in my regimen,
I have to go to the gym. – [Interviewer] How do
you start your mornings? – I wake up about seven
o’clock in the morning, go to the gym about nine, then
start to work out 10 o’clock. – [Interviewer] So, what’s
the key, to fitness? – First just having a partner
that believes in your goal, which is David, he believes in my goal and he’s always on me. So, really is having that partnership. Having somebody that cares
about what you’re trying to do and really walk you through the process and not lying to you about the process and a lot of people want it overnight. I’m the person that want it for longterm. Having a guy like David
and the whole DBC staff. Like they always when I
come in in the morning, what up Tim you look great. Wow, you look amazing. It’s always uplifting to come in this gym. I think that’s what keep motivated. Come in here in the morning,
even if I feel like crap. Just Dave and the team, the best. – [Interviewer] All right Tim, It’s time for our rapid fire questions. Seven AM workout or seven PM? – Seven AM – [Interviewer] Squat or deadlift? – Squat. – [Interviewer] Crossfit, yea or nay? – Crossfit. – [Interviewer] Pull-ups or chin-ups? – Pull-ups. – Dumbbells or kettlebells?
– Dumbbells. – [Interviewer] Run on the
treadmill or the great outdoors? – Run outside. – [Interviewer] Big legs or big arms? – Big legs. – [Interviewer] Cardio or weights? – Weights. – [Interviewer] Biggest compliment. Jacked, ripped, swole, or cut. – Ripped. – [Interviewer] If you
could work out with anyone dead or alive, who would it be. – Phil Heath That’s who I wanna workout with, because first of all
he’s jacked, number one and his diet regimen looks insane, so. All right, all right, it’s been nice. Glad y’all came, saw my
fridge, y’all came to the gym, but now you gotta get
the hell out of the gym. You have to go, you gotta go, now. Bye, bye. (upbeat music)

About the author


  1. I love how open he was about his struggles. It's a great reminder no matter how much money you have, we're all going through something.

  2. Tim and missy Eliot both lost their weight shortly after aliyah died.. I think they learned to appreciate life a lot more

  3. All my weight training meals have seasoned flavors, jamaican, thai, Indian , cajun or Creole, minus the salt. Lots of spices baby.

  4. You poor poor misinformed clowns (no disrespect) Eating bland horrible food and dreading meal time. Food should not just be fuel it should be enjoyable. You think that dry chicken breast is going to give you bigger fuller muscles more so than chicken with gravy or a little sauce on top!? When you deprive yourselves of normal and tasty foods to this degree you end up failing your fitness journey. Eat whatever you want just limit the portions and track calories it's so simple. You want that delicious donut? well bare in mind you have to just cut out that chocolate you planned to have tonight and just swap..you want that small glass of icecream? well the 3 chunks slices of cake you also wanted have to be pushed back to tomorrow. It's that simple! Enjoy your foods, workout hard and track.

  5. Timbaland, you're a legend man. Glad to see you joined the fitness army. You're looking dope, keep up the great work and much love from Italy. A fan.

  6. The way this is executed is awful imo. Nice shots etc, but whats with the interviewer not actually being there? Budget issues or what lol sort it out! Edit ** forgot to add that Timbaland is a G

  7. BTW… If any of you dumbasses watching think it looks like b.s… it is!… the leftwing is doing everything they can to discourage meat consumption (our natural diet)
    Everything from cow farts causing climate change, to trying to impose a meat tax (yeah, they're really trying to do that).. to all these shitty vegan documentaries filled with lies and manipulation.
    Anything to to with media influence, Hollywood, tv, even music is pushing the same B.S.

  8. Flax oil?? Somebody tell him that flax is ESTROGENIC, no man needs that… and I didnt see any meat in that fridge… looks like hes on a "low fat, high carb" 1980s diet… poor guy needs more knowledgeable trainers

  9. Why does he put lemons in Alkaline water? The purpose of Alkaline water is to make water less acidic. Putting lemons in just makes the water acidic again.

  10. No such thing as alkaline water. It's scientifically nonsensical. Your body has an extremely controlled homeostatic pH level control, that is NOT affected by "alkaline" foods and liquids. A minor change in pH could cause extreme damage, or death in some. So, it's nonsense to say foods and liquids could CHANGE your pH up and down. There is no biochemical mechanism by which compounds in foods can add or extract hydrogen ions from the blood.
    Bury this idiotic alkaline movement, alkaline filters, alkaline food only diet please.

  11. this lying ass n** I saw him in Prime 112 Restaurant in Miami eating like pig. he just losing weight because he’s getting old and working out at the same damn time

  12. He looks great 👍🏽 and he right as hell about them male titties 🤦🏽‍♀️🤣😂🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️NOT COOL we both got C cups ? Hell NO!!! GREAT RIGHT TIM PROUD OF U💪🏽✊🏽😉

  13. Timbaland you don't need to eat plain, boring foods that you don't enjoy, it's all about calories in vs. calories out. Even if you eat plain and boring you could still gain weight if you're eating more calories than you're burning. Eat any foods that you enjoy but just make sure you're eating fewer calories than you're burning. Just use a free app like My Fitness Pal to figure out how many calories you can personally eat each day to lose weight. Then, just stick to that number of calories and you can eat any types of foods you'd like, 7 days per week, and you'll still lose weight. I eat pizza, candy, cookies, cake, etc all week and I've been losing two pounds per week for the past 3 months, and I only need to lose a small amount of weight. All that matters is calories in versus calories out. Stop making your diet harder than it has to be by mainly eating foods that you don't really enjoy. Totally unnecessary, my dude.

  14. Food is so much more than fuel though that its not even funny. That's a very common attitude that poor people have: They don't distinguish between calories and nutrition. One of the most important functions of food is how it affects your hormones, since they're not made from anything else besides what you eat. And these substances are the only way your brain gives out orders to the rest of the body's systems. One of the most important of those? Your immune system. That's right. Get colds and allergies frequently? Change your diet. What about cancer-fighting abilities within your Soul Case? Yep, diet dependent. Mental alertness and reaching your full intellectual potential? The right foods are absolutely necessary. And if you live in L.A. like Timbaland does around all that pollution, the human body was never designed to deal with that. About the only thing that can be done to combat the harmful effects of living in that smog-ridden city is to eat a balanced diet. Like Tim, I eat a little processed food here and there, but I realize the artificial flavorings and colorings, the preservatives and synthetic texturizers are playing havoc with my body. So I don't indulge that much. Props for Tim for doing something positive with his health though. Fitness and mobility are also very important. ( But not as important as what we eat by a long shot). And that reference about titties? Sometimes a hard dose of honesty is the best catalyst for positive change. Great job. That's why this man is a legend in the music industry.

  15. timbaland is a legend in the music game. massive respect for his constant acknowledgment and awareness of addiction. Very inspiring. blessings

  16. Fair play to the man. Got himself in great shape and at 47 years old. Always looked like he lifted weights just had a lot fat on top.

  17. As a millenial will never forget timb. His music made my youth awesome. His story is real, not someone who was genetically gifted or came from a very deep athletic background . Gj timb, keep it up man 🙂

  18. Man y’all needa knock it off u guys be eating nasty as hell not believing it lol veggie movement n hip phop is a major promotion market stop it lol

  19. Timbo said " I looked at her breast, and she looked at mine and I could suck hers, and she could suck mine" 😭😭😭💀💀💀
