Chris Johnson Launches Supplement Biz ... Wanna Run Like Me?!

3/22/2019 3:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

You'll never run as fast as Chris Johnson ... but you can take what he takes before working out, 'cause the ex-NFL superstar is launching his own supplement line.

TMZ Sports talked to CJ2K -- who retired from football after the 2017 season -- about getting into the MULTI-BILLION dollar supplement industry ... a biz he's dreamed of being in since he was a teenager.

"When I first got to college, I was 150 pounds and I was a smaller guy," Johnson says.

"It was always something I was trying to, some type of supplement or something I was trying to get so I could gain weight and get bigger like the rest of the guys."

"So, I was like, one day I'm gonna come out with my own supplement."

Yeah, Chris ... the guy who ran a 4.24-second, 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine and went on to become a 3-time Pro Bowler who made 1st team All-Pro, won Offensive Player of the Year in 2009, and rushed for over 2,000 yards in a single season (he's 1 of only 7 guys to accomplish that feat) -- wasn't always a physical specimen.

Johnson Performance Supplements launches April 1 ... and Chris says the brand will feature a bunch of dope products including a pre-workout shake.

It's not only about working out ... Chris says he's also got products that have helped him with his memory.

So, even if you don't run a blazing 4.24 ... ya might be less forgetful.

3/21/2019 8:29 AM PDT
Breaking News

Well, this ain't what you wanna see if you're a Patriots fan ... Tom Brady bombing his way down a mountain on skis!!!

The 41-year-old QB is out in Montana with his family for their annual ski trip -- and decided to take a run down a pretty large mountain. 

"A little downhill this morning," Brady posted along with the video ... "now we just need to find the jump."

It appears Brady is the skier in the blue jacket based on his size -- either way, everyone on the hill is going pretty damn fast. 

So, how are Pats fans reacting? Just as you'd expect ... CONCERN!!!

"Hey. Stop," one fan wrote on Instagram. Here are some other comments ...

-- "Please slow down. Stay inside" -- @hbennett3223

-- "Wtf are you doing man?!?! Be safe man" -- @cpeters1993

-- "I'm sweating watching this" -- @j_delano

-- "Killin it Tom just dont break anything especially those fingers gonna needem for another ring" -- @jasont1287

-- "Tom, my heart is beating faster then ever before. Be safe" -- @tomfckinbrady12

-- "Honestly, what the hell are you doing to us Tom!! Gonna have a heart attack" -- @livkirby

James Harrison Bench Presses 500 Pounds ... 'Got Your B*tch Ass!!!'

3/19/2019 3:18 PM PDT
Breaking News

Did you know there was something in the gym James Harrison COULDN'T do!?

It's true ... he hadn't joined the 500-pound bench press club -- but he changed all that with one hulk-like lift Tuesday ... and yeah, it was impressive as hell.

The ex-Steelers superstar loaded up 10 plates and then some on his bar to get up to the half-a-thousand-pound mark ... and then he CRUSHED it!!!

Watch the clip ... Harrison takes the bar all the way to his chest -- and gets it up to full lockout without any help (you watching, Odell???)

You could tell Harrison was super impressed with himself ... 'cause he immediately jumped off the bench looking for dap from fellow gym-goers.

"500!! I told you I’d be back for your bi$&h a$$!" James wrote after the lift.

"You just don’t know how many nightmares you gave me - having to relive the failure of not tossing your heavy a$$ off my chest and having to explain to my kids that daddy lost! Lmao JK #500club"

If you're unfamiliar, James is maybe the most impressive NFL weight lifter ever ... routinely tossin' around iron like he did to offensive tackles.

In fact, remember when he was in the gym at 5 AM after a playoff game in 2017?!?!

#BEAST!!!!!!!!!!!

Peloton Sued You Didn't Work Out the Rights to Our Songs ... Music Companies Claim

3/19/2019 8:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The insanely successful Peloton bikes, which changed the fitness game, have done so by jacking songs to use for its instructional classes ... according to a new lawsuit.

Peloton is being sued by several different music publishing companies because -- according to new docs obtained by TMZ -- the company did not acquire the rights to play numerous hit songs featured in its wildly popular interactive spin classes.

The docs say Peloton currently has more than 600k subscribers and is reported to be worth more than $4 BILLION ... and the music publishing companies claim a big part of that success is due to the music playing during the classes.

Some of the songs listed in the suit include "Umbrella" and "Diamonds" by Rihanna, "Don't Wake Me Up" by Chris Brown, along with older hits like "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar. Rihanna's hit track, "Umbrella," has been used in at least 55 workout vids since 2017 ... according to the docs.

All in all, the publishers say they've ID'd more than a thousand songs in their catalogs that Peloton is using without proper permission.

Peloton is being sued for massive damages ... up to $150 million.

Alessandra Ambrosio Sexy Curves And Volleyball Serves

3/18/2019 12:30 PM PDT

Alessandra Ambrosio is serving up a little sex on the beach ... looking stunning as ever during a game of beach volleyball. 

We got pics and video of the retired Victoria's Secret supermodel putting her amazing curves to work, having fun in the sun over the weekend at a beach in Los Angeles. Mother nature gets an assist on this one for turning up the heat so Alessandra could turn heads in a skimpy black bikini. 

The mom of 2 is about to celebrate her 38th birthday ... and she's looking fine as hell! We're convinced this MILF could still work the runway.

Alessandra isn't afraid to get down and dirty ... diving for balls and laying it all out on the court. Sexy beach vball sessions are kinda her thing.

The icing on the cake ... Alessandra shaking her cake by the ocean!!!

Patrick Mahomes GF Ripped Bikini Bod ... On Hawaii Girls Trip!!!

3/16/2019 12:25 AM PDT
Breaking News

Did you know ... Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend is more of a gym rat than he is?! 

It's true -- Brittany Matthews is a budding social media fitness star -- and she showed off the fruits of her labor during an awesome girls trip to Hawaii. 

Brit -- along with a bunch of her girlfriends -- flew to Hawaii for a tropical bachelorette party (sans the Chiefs QB) ... where they partied and hit the beach in tiny bikinis. 

In fact, all of the girls on the trip had custom swimsuits with their nicknames on them -- Brittany's read, "Fit Brit."

Don't worry, besides relaxing in paradise, Brittany found plenty of time to exercise -- hiking and hitting the gym, because NO DAYS OFF!!!

By the way, Mahomes and Brittany have been together for years. They started dating back in high school and continued dating while she was attending the University of Texas at Tyler and Patrick was at Texas Tech. 

In fact, the two were just spotted all over L.A. a few weeks ago, hitting Lakers games and all the finest Hollywood hot spots.

It all begs the question ... who gets a ring first -- Pat or Brit?!?!?

Carl Lewis 40-Yard Dash?? I Coulda Run It In Under 4.0 Seconds!

3/13/2019 4:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Carl Lewis -- one of the greatest U.S. track athletes EVER -- says he would've eaten the 40-yard dash alive ... telling TMZ Sports his time would've been in the THREES!!!

"Track guys that run it, run it under 4. So, under 4 seconds. Yeah."

Obviously, that time is BLAZING fast ... in the NFL combine last month, only six guys even broke the 4.40 mark.

In fact, the fastest dude in the entire event was Mississippi safety Zedrick Woods -- who clocked in an official time of 4.29.

But, Lewis tells us even though he's never run it -- he's pretty sure he could've gotten into the 3s ... telling us that's just what elite track guys do.

Think he's exaggerating? Maybe just a little ... current U.S. track star Christian Coleman took a swing at the 40 in 2017 -- and while he set it on fire -- his time was just out of the 3-second range at 4.12.

BUT ... Usain Bolt DID just run a 4.22 at the NFL's event a couple of weeks ago, and that was without proper training AND in street clothes ... two years into his retirement.

So could Lewis have done it?? Who knows ... but let the office debates begin!!!

Conor McGregor It'll All Work Out ... Shirtless Jog After Jail

3/12/2019 1:13 PM PDT
Breaking News

Conor McGregor went right back to business after getting released from jail Monday night ... hitting the streets of Miami for a late-night run!!!

As we previously reported ... the UFC superstar was arrested after he allegedly smashed a fan's phone for trying to take a pic of him outside the Fontainebleau hotel early Monday morning in South Beach.

He was booked for robbery/strong-arm and criminal mischief over $1,000 -- the price of the fan's phone -- and was released a few hours later, around 8 PM PT.

Now we know exactly what Conor did after getting out of the slammer ... 'cause we've obtained video of The Notorious going on a shirtless jog shortly after he posted his $12,500 bond.

Yeah, Conor (seemingly) ain't worried ... and maybe for good reason. He was initially charged with a felony after the NYC bus incident with Khabib -- but struck a deal and only ended up with 5 days of community service and an anger management course.

Conor's attorneys released a statement on Monday ... saying, "Last evening Conor McGregor was involved a minor altercation over a cell phone that resulted in a call to law enforcement.

"Mr. McGregor appreciates the response of law enforcement and pledges his full cooperation."

Shawn Oakman Crushes Intense Gym Workout ... You Watching, NFL???

3/11/2019 9:06 AM PDT
Breaking News

Shawn Oakman is wasting no time proving he's serious about the NFL ... putting in some serious work in the gym just days after proclaiming his dream of playing in the league.

Oakman was found NOT GUILTY in his rape case last month ... and has since vowed to work his ass off and show teams he deserves a shot to play in the NFL.

Of course, Oakman was a projected 1st-round draft pick while playing at Baylor, but went untouched in the 2016 NFL Draft after he was arrested and charged with raping a woman at his apartment. 

The 6'9" defensive end posted a recent sweat sesh for his followers over the weekend ... and it's clear he's trying to let people know he's serious about getting to the league.

"I want to play football at the highest level and just really finally get my chance,” Oakman told KWTX last week.

"I think God will set the right path for me but I don't feel like I have to beg for anything, it's not a begging matter. I don't want anybody to hand me anything. I want to earn it and everything I get."

Whether a team takes a chance on Oakman is still unclear ... but he sure looks ready to ball.

UFC's Brian Ortega I'm Training Halle Berry!!! 'We're Gonna Drill Her Hard'

3/11/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Halle Berry is turning to a UFC stud to get trained up for her new MMA-inspired movie ... and Brian Ortega tells us he's STOKED for the chance to work with the Hollywood megastar. 

Berry is directing and starring in a flick called "Bruised" -- about a female MMA fighter who's trying to be a good mom while beating asses in cage fights. 

So, she hit up Ortega -- the #2 ranked UFC featherweight in the world. Also, the guy is a legit badass when it comes to jiu-jitsu.

"My main goal is to get her jiu-jitsu looking dope as f*ck," Ortega tells TMZ Sports ... "We're gonna drill her hard."

So, any chance for a possible romance with his new student? After all, Berry selected Ortega as her #ManCrushMonday last month ... and said she couldn't wait to get to get to work with the guy. 

Plus, look at Ortega ... the dude ain't so bad looking himself either. 

But, Brian says he'll keep things strictly professional -- he's not looking to make anyone uncomfortable. Total pro.

L.A. Marathon Paralyzed Man Aiming for History

3/10/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Adam Gorlitsky is looking to become the first paralyzed person in history to complete the Los Angeles Marathon ... and he'll be using some pretty awesome tech to cross the finish line.

Adam, who's been paralyzed from the waist down for more than 13 years, is planning to walk the 26-mile course with the aid of a $95,000 ReWalk Exoskeleton. Just finishing isn't enough. Adam also wants to break the record for the fastest marathon by a paralyzed person. 

Adam is starting the L.A. Marathon 2 days before the rest of the field does on March 24 -- and if he makes it from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica Pier in under 36 hours and 37 minutes, he'll beat the benchmark set by Simon Kindleysides at the 2018 London Marathon.

Adam tells us he started training for marathons 3 years ago when he got his first robotic exoskeleton ... and last October in Portland he became the first paralyzed man in the U.S. to complete a half marathon.

In addition to his personal goals, Adam says his larger purpose is raising awareness for his charity, I Got Legs, which helps people living with disabilities gain access to life-changing tech like his exoskeleton. Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Mackie, Stephen Colbert and Sean Astin are all showing their support for him.

Good luck, Adam ... see you at the finish line!!!

Johnny Manziel Hits Football Field After CFL Cut ... Shows Off Arm!!!

3/5/2019 1:54 PM PST
Breaking News

Here's Johnny Manziel shrugging off his latest football drama ... and showing off his cannon arm!!!!

The ex-NFL quarterback -- who was just cut by the Montreal Alouettes and the entire Canadian Football League last week -- hit the field for some drills ... and showed he's still got it.

Manziel was out with his longtime trainer, George Whitfield, in San Diego on Monday ... throwing passes and working on his footwork.

You can see in the clip, Johnny slings a 20-yard dime OVER a soccer goalpost for a would-be TD.

Of course, it's been a tough offseason for the former Heisman Trophy winner ... his CFL team announced just days ago Johnny Football violated the terms of his agreement and is now banned.

But, didn't seem Johnny took the news too harshly ... he announced afterward, "I look forward to exploring new options within the United States."

In other words ... he's interested, AAF and XFL.

So, it all begs the question ... is this latest vid an audition tape for leagues like the XFL and AAF to take a look at him??

Sure seems like it!
