Nick Jonas in Workout Gear Shares Selfie of Jonas Brothers Doing a Treadmill Workout

“Getting that pre-show workout in."

The Jonas Brothers are getting their sweat on – in the Philippines. In a new Instagram Story, Nick Jonas shares a clip of himself, Joe, and Kevin walking on treadmills at the gym. "Getting that pre-show workout in," Nick explains in the short clip. How does Nick, who is married to actress Priyanka Chopra, approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about his lifestyle habits. 


Meal Delivery Service

Whether Nick has to bulk up or slim down, he relies on meal delivery services to make meeting caloric goals easier. "I had about six weeks to put on 12 to 15 pounds of muscle before filming started on [DirecTV's] Kingdom—my character is a fighter whose strong suits are wrestling and grappling. Diet had a lot to do with it. I went from consuming about 3,000 calories a day to 4,200! Paleta, a food-delivery service, sent me three meals a day and snacks. It was an incredible way to know that I was getting what I need to build muscle and not have to think about it. Breakfast was usually an omelet with veggies and cashew cheese, a turkey-meat patty, and some fruit; lunch and dinner would be lean protein, veggies, and nuts; snacks consisted of things like snap peas with peanut sauce," he told GQ.


Guilty Pleasures

Nick allows himself to cheat on occasion. "I don't have the luxury of eating whatever I want whenever I want anyway, because of my type 1 diabetes, so I have been conscientious about food for a long time. I do have guilty pleasures, though. I wasn't drinking at all while I was training for the show, but now that we're done, I keep it classy with Coors Light," he told GQ. 


Circuit Training

Nick trains with Gregg Miele at Heart and Hustle gym. "When I was getting in shape for the show, I was doing three sessions a day: one fight-training with Kingdom's coach, Joe "Daddy" Stephenson, and two strength-building with Gregg. Each workout focused on a different region of the body—upper body, core, or legs—and we'd do a circuit of six different moves for one area. Lifting a lot of weights, really trying to break the muscles down," he told GQ. 


To "Lean Out" He Decreased Calories and Workouts


"I got pretty Hulk-ish. Now that I'm on tour for my album, I've leaned out about 10 pounds from what I'd gained. It's been fun to change my physicality. My meal plan came down to about 2,500 calories, and the portions got really small. I exercise only three or four times a week," Nick continued. 


Hot Yoga

Nick also gets his zeno on. "I've been working on stretching and lengthening my muscles with hot yoga," Nick continued, "and I'm trying to incorporate more cardio. But I hate going to the gym. I think everybody hates cardio to some degree. I'm not the kind of person who wakes up in the morning and can't wait to work out. I kind of dread it, actually. I see it as a necessary evil."
