This Is Us Actor Sterling K. Brown Plans on Living to 100 Heres How

We all want to live to a ripe old age. Sterling K. Brown, though, has a plan to achieve it.

The 43-year-old “This Is Us” star has a strict hour-long workout that he runs through every day. His aim? To live to 100. Why? Because when he was young, he saw his father die of a heart attack aged just 45.

“I think when Pops passed, I had sort of a recognition of the fact that 45 was young,” Brown told Men’s Health.

Here’s his game plan for making a century.

THE WORKOUT

Let’s be clear: the six-foot, 190-pound Brown is no slug. The guy played football, basketball and ran track at school and has been entering triathlons for the past eight years. 

So it’s fair to say his hour-long workout is a bit of a burn. It involves a “vigorous” several-mile run on the treadmill, calisthenics, strength-training exercises such as chin-ups and Russian twists, and dumbbell lifts.

The elder Brown’s diabetes-induced heart attack is one reason for this dedication to fitness, but so is nutritionist John Robbins’s well-known book “Healthy at 100,” which the actor read when he was in his early 30s. In the book, Robbins examined the habits of countries and cultures such as Abkhazia and the Okinawan Japanese, which boast more than their fair share of centenarians.

Hence the exercise regime heavy on calisthenics and hoops, and hence Brown’s yearly birthday present to himself of a 10-mile run – which sounds like something his on-screen persona Randall Pearson would do, too.

WHAT ELSE?

But exercise is just the start. Brown also meditates 20 minutes every day and follows a diet that is rich in greens and grains — all in an effort to beat the average U.S. life expectancy for men of 79 years.

“I just don’t want to give in to the statistical analysis that says that is my fate,” he told Men’s Health. “So I try to do things as proactively as possible to ensure that I’m around to see my children’s children and be of value to them when they come into the world. There’s so much to live for, and I don’t want to sell myself short by thinking I don’t have a right to longevity and vitality any more or less than anyone else.”

Fine advice.
