When Vulture’s Jon DeFreest designed a cover for Cut the Schmidt, a Richard Simmons–like guide to healthy living, he and we did not imagine that such a video might ever actually come to be. It was just a small, odd Internet token of admiration. But we were thinking small, and if you know anything about Schmidt — and about Max Greenfield, the actor who plays him on New Girl — you know that he dreams on a grander scale, especially when it comes to fitness goals. So when he saw the cover, he went and made a real workout video. With spinning! And inspirational thoughts! Schmidt was kind enough to send the video along to Vulture, and it is available for your viewing pleasure below. Hop on your stationary bike, and enjoy.
