Nick Cannon hates running, unlike his friend Kevin Hart.
Fitness has always been crucial for the actor and comedian, but it took on a new level of importance after he was diagnosed with lupus in 2012.
His exercise regime consists of core training, martial arts and bar training, though Nick avoids running at all costs.
“I hate running,” he stated to GQ America. “I was just giving Kevin Hart c**p because he runs all the time. He’s just the running man. I’m not running unless somebody is chasing me. So I do a lot of martial arts, kickboxing, and boxing. I was really into boxing for a long time. If I do too much cardio, though, I’ll lose weight. And I don’t want to lose weight.”
Nick’s lupus diagnosis saw him overhaul his diet too, and he cut out pork and processed meats, though he’s loosened up on his former strict eating plan, and enjoys most foods in moderation.
The 37-year-old also turned to meditation to ease the painful symptoms of lupus, an autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs.
“A lot of issues with autoimmune diseases are exacerbated by stress, so I work as hard as possible to have a stress-free life,” the father-of-three explained. “I’ve found key people to surround myself with. Sometimes you don’t even realise the things in your life that stress you out. It could be as simple as, like, the traffic you sit in regularly. My body just reacts to that stuff in a physical manner. I’d rather fly at a higher frequency.”

Robyn Lawley has been left with facial scars after falling down a staircase as a result of suffering a seizure.
The curvy Australian model is known for fronting campaigns for plus-size brands such as Lane Bryant and Marina Rinaldi as well as appearing in photoshoots for Ralph Lauren and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
However, Robyn has now been forced to step out of the spotlight after injuring her face in a terrifying accident two months ago.
“I unfortunately had a seizure on my staircase, I fell from over 7ft and landed on my face. I suppose it’s ironic that I’m a model, however I’m grateful I didn’t break my neck,” the star wrote on her Instagram page on Monday (13Aug18). “I’ve managed to come full circle with that gratefulness, and luck. I could of had it holding my daughter for example, or I could be in a wheelchair, or not breathing at all (sic).”
Robyn, who shares three-year-old daughter Ripley with her partner Everest Schmidt, uploaded a photo showing the cuts and scratches on her face a short time after the accident and another more recent snap displaying how her face has mostly healed except for a large scar on her forehead.
In her post, she also explained that her fall was linked to her battles with autoimmune disease lupus and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), which provokes blood clots in both arteries and veins.
“With fashion week coming soon I wanted to acknowledge my new lighting bolt scar on my forehead, lip and chin,” the 29-year-old wrote. “As the scars fade, a part of me wants nothing to do with them and a part of me wants to embrace them. They make us who we are. Plus wearing daily make-up to cover my face is something I do not do.”
To conclude her Instagram post, Robyn noted that she was thankful for the medical experts who cared for her in hospital and explained to fans that they were welcome to direct message her any questions they may have about lupus or APS.
“Life isn’t all rainbows. I’ve found strength the past few months following people who are brave to share their physical and emotional ongoing battles,” she added. “To anyone that’s going through something I’m sorry for the pain you have to endure.”
