Will Smith returns to the gym and says he’s ‘back to square one’ with fitness

Movie star Will Smith shocked fans when he shared candid photos of his body last week, saying he was in the “worst shape of his life”.

Now, he’s headed back to the gym and has posted some new pics of him getting ready to work out.

It’s “back to square one” for the 52-year-old Men In Black star.

He’s shared a selection of new pics with his 53.3 million Instagram followers before his gym session, aiming to motivate others to do the same.

Of course, he's done it all with his trademark humour.

Smith captioned the post: "Back to square one. Lookin like a circle. Let’s get it!!"

The star is dressed in a pair of black jogging bottoms and a white shirt that sells ‘bel-air’ – a fitting choice for The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air himself.

He then posted a close-up shot of his smiling face.

Fans rushed to share their support, however one joked: “You ain’t convincing anyone with that smile, Will.”

One added: "It’s the confidence and motivation for me! Me and my hubby are on the same boat! Let’s all get in shape 2021!"

Another fan praised: "Love the authenticity and transparency. Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. "

He replied with a comment saying: 'You can’t see it, but there are hot pockets on strings all over this gym.'

Last week he shared a picture where he stood in front of a pond with his jacket open, to show off his stomach.

He captioned the candid pic: 'I’m gonna be real wit yall – I’m in the worst shape of my life.'

Fans and followers praised him for his honesty, calling it: 'the most amazing post in the history of social media.'

Smith wasn’t finished there. He then posted a completely topless photo, announcing his commitment to get in shape again.

In the motivational message, he wrote: 'This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry. I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins…this is it!'

He has teamed up with YouTube to document his weight loss experience in a new series that has the working title of ‘Best Shape Of My Life’.

Production is currently underway.

In a statement via CNN , producers say the series shows Smith 'rebuilding his body into the best shape of his life and getting his groove back along the way.'
