50 Cent stopped by NBC‘s The Today Show earlier today to discuss his fitness book Formula 50 in which he shares personal fitness and nutrition tips with the readers.

During the interview he talked about his trip to rehab in 2000, how he first got into fitness and how getting shot inspired him to work out.

“I was hurt pretty bad so I had to come back to go through rehab in a city in New York and I would travel, it was an hour from where I was staying. From there, they’ll put you on special treadmills to walk because my legs were damaged pretty bad. And then I started to go to a local gym to walk on an actual treadmill. Just being in the environment, it made me want to be more involved in the other aspects of my physical health.”
