The 25 Fittest Football Players

The biggest, strongest, fastest, and leanest machines in the NFL.

Cromartie's speed, explosiveness, and agility makes the 6'2", 210-pound veteran one of the best cover cornerbacks in the entire NFL. Cromartie was kind enough to sit down with Men’s Fitness for a quick chat about how he continues to maintain his fitness level.


“I’m big on nutrition,” Cromartie said. “Once I got to New York in 2010, I got with a nutritionist, and now my diet consists of mostly vegetables, brown rice, fish, and chicken. I don’t really eat red meat. I try to stick to low-portion, high-protein meals.”

Cromartie, however, wasn’t always so careful about what he put in his body. “I used to eat Oreos and McDonald’s,” he said, laughing. “I used to just eat anything.”

But it’s not just diet that keeps Cromartie in good shape. He’s also very dedicated to the workout regimen that helps him maintain his fitness year-round.

“I think what sets me apart from other players is dedication,” Cromartie told us. “I always take pride in what I do eating wise, football wise, and workout wise. I always to compete with myself to make sure I improve on everything I do.”
