Video: John Calipari vows to lose weight

Now that his mind can be put at ease thanks to a killer recruiting class coming in, Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari has another goal in mind: winning the battle of the bulge.

In a video posted to YouTube, the 57-year-old Calipari vowed to get in better shape for the upcoming season. He certainly appears committed to it, as the video was recorded while he worked out on an elliptical.

“Mid-50s, I let it go a little bit,” Calipari said in the video. “Had a heck of a year. But going forward, gotta get in better shape. Gotta get the body right. Started a week ago. What I will say to you is really simple. I’m not showing you my body for a month.”

It’s great to see Calipari setting such a goal for himself, as coaching can be quite stressful. Hopefully, he is able to get himself at a comfortable weight so he can be in the best shape possible to help Kentucky win another championship.
