Obi Obadike the trainer that got Morris Chestnut in shape for BEST MAN HOLIDAY movie

I’m throwing this post up because Obi Obadike is a friend of mine that I knew in high school, and I just got out of the movie theatre a couple of hours ago from seeing Best Man Holiday.

First things first, its a really good movie. You should go and see it.

It only cost $17 million to make, its a later in life sequel to the Best Man a movie that came out 14 years ago and it did a cool $30.6 million dollars in its opening weekend. The more movies that have people that look like me – that do well – the more that will get made. And we need more movies like this.


But this is a motivational / informational / fitness / cooking site so its not a long stretch to throw up a post about awesome fitness (even though its a dude). One of the things that you will notice in the movie is that Morris Chestnut is in absolutely incredible shape.

Morris is 44 years old and even though he is in Hollywood and Hollywood dudes get paid to be in shape, the form that he has is kind of crazy. It tripped me out when I looked on Facebook a little while ago and saw that one of my friends from high school has been posting some stuff about how he was Morris’ trainer. And that got him in the shape for this movie and this MUSCLE & PERFORMANCE magazine cover.


Check out Morris give Obi a shout out on Dr. Oz

So, who is Obi Obadike?

He’s a fitness expert and celebrity trainer, a fitness personality, motivational speaker, with every fitness degree and regular degree that you can imagine: BA,BS.MS,CFT,SFN. He went to my high school and he went to Cal State Fullerton….

I didn’t go to CSUF, but uhmmm, I spent a lot of time in the general area back when, um… yeah. There is a lot to like about that school and that area if you are in to a certain type of lady. But thats neither here, nor there, and I’m rambling.

Anyways, if you are looking for fitness motivation, workout inspiration and lessons on how to properly get fit, you need to follow this cat.

He has a regular column called, “Ask the Ripped Dude” with and he has what I can only describe as like a 12 pack ab section! The shit is ridiculous. He is actually known as “The World’s Most Ripped Fitness Model.”

Its almost to the point where I need him to stop posting pics on Facebook because its making me feel bad about myself…

Check him out on FACEBOOK* : Follow him on Twitter – @Obi_obadike : and check him out on youtube:

If you head over to he even has some product that he is slanging to help get you in shape. No excuse to not be fit!

* Obi has A LOT of followers and I think he has multiple Facebook pages because he’s hit his limit a couple of times but follow him on twitter and everywhere else because he’s good at what he does.
