The 25 Fittest Football Players

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

At 6' and 203 pounds, Reggie Bush has overcome several major knee and leg injuries to remain one of the NFL's most dynamic and well-rounded players. The Detroit Lions running back uses his quickness, power, and agility to maintain his position as one of the league’s top gainers in yards from scrimmage nearly every year. Not satisfied in just being a fantastic rusher and pass receiver, Bush is easily one of the fittest players currently in uniform.


Men’s Fitness profiled Bush’s super-intense off-season workouts and found the explosive back practicing an exhaustive acrobatic regimen, developed by Kappel LeRoy Clarke, called Fre Flo Do that takes place entirely on a treadmill-like machine (that also rotates) called the Launchpad. All this has Bush diving over huge balls, backpedaling up the machine, and catching medicine balls from above his head. "He's probably the most powerful and quickest athlete I've ever had on the Launchpad,” said Clarke in the same piece. Moral of the story? Reggie Bush is a fitness machine and one of the most-jacked NFL players you’ll find on the gridiron today.
