‘Killing It’ Star Craig Robinson Reveals His Reasonable Workout Goals

Craig Robinson is trying to stay fit, but his approach is one that anyone — even non-celebrities — can easily follow.

“One of my main goals is to live a healthy lifestyle,” Robinson, 52, exclusively tells Us Weekly‘s 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me feature.

The actor, who stars in Peacock’s rags-to-riches sitcom Killing It, is just trying to make sure he gets moving. “Consistency is key, and my goal is to work out a little every day, even if it’s just for five minutes,” he shares with Us. “Something is better than nothing.”

Something as simple as walking can improve overall health — and Robinson has plenty of options if he wants extra support on a hike. “I collect walking canes from all over the world — France, Jamaica, Africa,” he says.
