The 2011 MF 25

From the boardroom to the classroom, the big screen to the small, these guys are among the world's fittest
CHIP WADE The Carpenter, 28

● As contractor on two HGTV shows (Curb Appeal: The Block and Designed to Sell) and owner of his own design firm, Chip is always on the move. “I have trial memberships with gyms around the country,” he says. Fortunately, he makes use of them, training five to six days a week, sometimes twice a day. When he’s on the road, Wade always packs his protein powder and a shaker cup as well as assorted bars, multivitamin packs, and heavy bands. “I always find time to get in my resistance training,” he says. Most mornings, Wade gets up at 5:30 a.m. to fit in his two-hour workout. He’ll try to do something active at night, preferably outdoors. “I really think it helps my psyche to be outside a little bit each day,” he says.



● Once a skinny walk-on at USC, Clay Matthews has since packed 55 pounds of muscle onto his 6'3" frame, thanks to MMA-style training with Randy Couture. Matthews brought that fighter intensity to Super Bowl XLV. The Green Bay linebacker laid a big hit on Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall, who fumbled the ball that led to a touchdown. It was the Packers’ first Lombardi trophy in 15 years.
