Matthew is a busy father of 3, but he makes time to workout- even at home! A typical workout consists of pull-ups on the kids swingset, sprints in the backyard, and free weights. He is also a fan of mountain biking and surfing because he likes his workouts to be as mental or spiritual as they are physical.
”SOMETIMES YOU CAN GET THE BODY IN SHAPE, AND THE HEAD AIN’T IN GREAT SHAPE,” HE SAYS. “BUT IT’S REAL NICE IF YOU CAN COORDINATE ‘EM.”
His trainer even attributes his youthful appearance with the fact that he keeps training year-round and not just for roles (as many actors in Hollywood do). McConaughey’s active lifestyle is matched by his love of healthy food. Because fitness plays such a big part in his own life, he started the non-profit organization j.k. livin foundation, which funds an after-school fitness and wellness program for some of the nation’s most vulnerable inner-city teenagers. The foundation’s name is shorthand for “just keep living,” a personal mantra inspired by the passing of his father.
