How Athletes and Celebs Are Spending the Summer

 

The summer is in full swing, which means that even the world’s most accomplished and fit athletes and actors are enjoying much needed R&R. Some, well, are a having a bit more fun this summer than others. 

Case in point: Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James kills it on the hardwood and is now making the leap into acting this summer, starring in the comedy film Trainwreck alongside Amy Schumer and Bill Hader. It hits theatres 7/17, but before it does, James went on a Bahamas vacation with Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul. Check out this unforgettable picture of the tremendous trio on a banana boat.

Inspired by King James, Men’s Fitness editors were wondering what other athletes and celebs were up to this summer. So, we put together the eight best summer moments of some of our past cover stars.

Michael Strahan is done terrorizing quarterbacks on the gridiron and has settled into a co-host role on the ABC morning talkshow Live with Kelly & Michael. When he’s not in the gym, the 43-year-old father of four is spending time with his children, a couple of which are pictured above.

In between making promotional appearances for his next summer blockbuster Terminator: Genisys, action-movie legend and bodybuilding wonder Arnold Schwarzenegger paid a visit to the scenic city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for his Arnold Classic competition.

See Scott ride, see Scott swim! Of course, we’re talking about the star of this year’s film adaptation of the Nicholas Spark’s novel The Longest Ride, Scott Eastwood. The son of legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood went scuba diving over the summer near his home in San Diego.

Hugh Jackman is a beast in the gym, deadlifting crazy amounts of weight. He is much more fun-loving outside of it, as evidenced by his wide-grin as he hangs out with a koala.

Seattle Seahawks Superbowl champion quarterback Russell Wilson is a commanding presence on the field and is among the very best at his position. To continue playing at a such a high level, dedication to improving your body and craft is demanded around the clock. Still, that didn’t stop Wilson, who made it a point to spend time with the children of Rady’s Hospital in San Diego, California.

What would Furious 7 star Vin Diesel do without a bench, a barbell, and some dumbbells? Even when he’s far away from home, as he was in the above picture taken in June while he was filming Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk in Africa, the 47-year-old actor is always close to a gym.
