The John Wick Handbook To A Perfectly Normal Day
John Wick is not just a dog-loving, gun-toting, revenge-seeking hit-man. He’s also an avid intermittent faster. It may seem to the casual observer like Wick is an extraordinary individual, but even he has condensed his world-famous diet into a perfectly mundane routine.
We spent the day with John at his Manhattan loft and peeked behind the curtain at what his fitness schedule really looks like. From the moment he wakes up, to the minute his head hits the pillow, we’ve got the play-by-play of what makes John Wick tick.
