Cool Univ of Miami football throwback 🏈 1993 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. Me and my teammate and workout buddy, Bruce Eberst - big dude wearing the 🧢 lid. We rolled into New Orleans undefeated and the #1 team in the country - playing the #2 team, Univ of Alabama for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. We lost 34-13. Tough loss. Learned a lot. I was banged up most of my college career (shoulder reconstruction, three knee surgeries and blew my back out with two total ruptures of my discs ) but man these years were formidable and defining. Made some good friends and we took pride in being the hardest workers in the country. Thanks to my guy and our Heisman Trophy winner, @ginotorretta13 for posting this☝🏾one. What a long, winding road life can be. #tbt #SugarBowl #NationalChampionship #TheU #IthinkIHaveAMullet 🤦🏽♂️

Cool news. Our hit series @nbctitangames RETURNS FOR SEASON 2! I broke the news last night on the exciting #AmericanNinjaWarrior finale. Congrats @reallifeninja on earning the crown 👑 I’ve always wondered who’s the most bad ass in the land. Ninja Warriors? Or my TITANS. The Ninja course? Or MT OLYMPUS. It’s a no-contest for me, because it’s my TITANS all the way. Maaaaaybe one day we’ll find out. But right now, I’m looking for men and women of all athletic backgrounds and ages to join me. If you THINK you have what it takes to become a TITAN, then hit my link up☝🏾top! I’ll see you in the arena, my friends. TITAN GAMES S2 @sevenbucksprod @asmithcoprod @danygarciaco
My new @projectrock @underarmour IRON WILL collection drops IN THREE DAYS. Men, Women and our first ever Youth collection. My collections will always represent much more than selling bad ass workout gear or sneakers. It represents life. And the consistent daily hard work and iron will it takes to succeed at it. Enjoy the gear. #ironwillcollection #underarmour #projectrock DROPS THIS THURSDAY @jonbrandoncruz 🎥
Was a cool surprise when I found out The Wall Street Journal Magazine wanted to focus their story on my hands - a career first. My two hand philosophy. It’s my ideology that we can can’t control everything, but we can always control our effort and the hard work we’re willing to put in with our own two hands. My paws🖐🏾🖐🏾are scarred, broken knuckles and calloused all from football, wild pro wrestling matches, dumb fights🤦🏽♂️ and hitting the iron daily. But my hands also serve as my two anchoring roadmaps of my life’s journey - successes, failures, protection, love and everything in between. Thanks @wsjmag for the surprising and very cool inroad you took to go deeper to understand what’s behind these ol’ f*cked up callouses. Fun shoot. Thanks again. #twohandphilosophy #wallstreetjournalmagazine This December.
❤️🥃 Wow I was just nominated for FIVE People’s Choice Awards. I think 🤔 it’s a new personal record. Always shake my head and smile at stuff like this, as my focus is always about putting in the work to deliver for the people. Never expect it, but if it happens I also never take it for granted cos it’s pretty damn cool 😎✊🏾 Thank you everyone!! #votenow #peopleschoice #5x
This is much more than @underarmour ’s #1 selling collection. Much more than slapping some shit on a t-shirt and selling it. This is my life. And the #IronWill it takes to show up daily when it’s You vs You. Many of you know this gospel and proudly live it. @projectrock drops it’s new @underarmour collection in ONE WEEK. #IronWillCollection THIS THURSDAY @jonbrandoncruz 🎥
I never post about my friend. Personal thing, but I prefer to keep our memories and bond private and quiet. But something about today compelled me as a moving reminder of how fragile life is for all of us. It’s Paul’s birthday and rightfully so, his legacy celebrated around the world. Our friendship was bonded over our daughters, Meadow & Simone and the pride and protection we took being their fathers. And recently, I got a scare when I almost lost another friend on the road. All this stuff got me thinking about how beautiful, yet wildly unpredictable life is. We never know what’s around the corner, so we gotta live as greatly as we can in the honor of our loved ones and ancestors who are no longer with us. Manuia le aso fanau, my friend. #livegreatly #pw

My son @kevinhart4real was originally booked but when he was injured in a recent car accident - I did the right thing and stepped in for my family. Thank God he was buckled into his car seat 🙏🏾😂 Heal up brotha, always got your back. Enjoy the show everyone!!
In real life, I can put on a MasterClass about the countless times I’ve had use my fear of something as a valuable weapon to overcome and succeed at it. Or I failed. Fear is a good thing for all of us. It’s healthy. Keeps us sharp - depending on how we use it. We examine a lil’ of that fear tonight. #ballers #hbo @1030pm.
Assassins quietly play chess♟loud clowns play checkers. Thank you audiences worldwide for this incredible support and massive win. Very cool and we’re grateful for the love 🙏🏾 #hardestworkersintheroom #hungryhumble #nocandyass🤡s
Our cups (and tequila glasses 🥃 ) runneth over with gratitude. @laurenhashianofficial and I are deeply grateful to everyone who worked tirelessly to make this wedding the most beautiful and spiritually enriching day ever. No press, no paparazzi, no noise, nothing lavish or opulent - just us and our family - who all brought with them endless love, support, respect, joy and vibrant mana. And a huge mahalo to all of you out there 🌎 for all your lovely comments, posts, well wishes and positive vibes - it was really cool to see. So cheers 🥂 in spirit of Mālama Honua - to love and protect all things we cherish - our lands, oceans, cultures and each other. A magical day and a good one for the soul. And tomorrow I’ll go right back to my “honey do” role and changing diapers 😉 #lifeisgood #johnsonhashianwedding #horizontalhula #aloha 🤟🏾 @hhgarcia41 📸
Our final wedding pomaika’i (blessing ) with our daughters and surrounded by our family as our family pastor we’ve known for years, Kahu Kordell Kekoa draws upon my ancestor’s warrior spirits to love, guide and protect my family thru this union and in life. Beautiful and powerful final blessing, thank you brother Kordell. And thank you Jazzy for asking me nonstop during the blessing when we were eating the wedding cake. That’s my girl. Cheat meals on the brain 🍰 🧠 #pomaikai #ancestors #johnsonhashianwedding
My ❤️s and the real stars of our wedding. 25% Samoan 25% Italian 25% Black 25% Armenian 100% grab your face and give you unconditional love & smooches and there’s two things you can do about it - nothing and like it. #dna #sisters #johnsonfacegrab #weddingday
Very cool ~ THANK YOU everyone for making this such a massive and special success. We keep on keepin’ on ✊🏾 #hobbsandshaw sets new 2019 record for topping the global box office four weekends in a row. @sevenbucksprod #hardestworkersintheroom
In her excitement & joy of being flower girl, Jazzy took a spill while walking down the aisle and all the petals🌹fell outta the basket. She didn’t cry, and without hesitation she started picking them up and putting them back in the basket. This moment was a cool & critical (and beautiful ) microcosm for a much bigger thing in her life - you will stumble and fall. We all do. But be accountable, get back up, dust yourself off, laugh and keep on going down the road. Proud of my lil’ girl’s instincts. And after I helped her here get back on her feet, 30min later I gave the biggest, sugariest piece of wedding cake - cos that’s what loving and responsible fathers do ❤️ Turn our children into sugar tornadoes. #westumble #getbackup #wekeeponkeepingon #weeatcake #weddingday
Wedding day flower girl 🌺 is a big responsibility and one that Jazzy took very serious. In the few minutes before the ceremony we took to practice, I quickly realized she was determined to not gently lay the flowers, but rather intensely throw the flowers with ruthless aggression ~ and a wicked smile. Hell. Yeah. That’s my daughter! 😂👊🏾 #weddingday #flowergirl #donotgogentle @jonbrandoncruz 📸
745am and I’m walkin’ that aisle to get married. Us Johnsons, love to make that hay when the sun comes up. Plus, getting married in the early morning hours, allowed me to stuff my gluttonous face with pancakes and sausage at our breakfast wedding reception. #mrgluttonyisback #walkthataisle #johnsonhashianwedding 🥞 @jonbrandoncruz 📸
Minutes before showtime. For my wedding, I served as my own best man and groomsmen. I’m blessed with many men who I call friends and a handful who I consider my brother. This time around, I needed to go solo and my groomsmen and best man were the spirits of my loved ones and ancestors who are no longer with us. Felt those men’s spirits with me aaaalll day. Grateful for their guidance on this one. Good energy. Good mana. #weddingmorning #hawaii @jonbrandoncruz 📸
🙏🏾🥃 Hobbs & Shaw sets new 2019 box office record for being the #1 movie in the world, for four weeks in a row. Besting previous three week record held by Avengers, Spider-Man and Captain Marvel. Records are made to be broken, so I look forward to the next great movie giving us a run, kickin’ my ass and takin’ the crown 👑 Thanks everyone for the amazing support and hope you had a fantastic Labor Day with your loved ones. Now back to my labor 🤙🏾 #hobbsandshaw #1 🌎
Stop messing with my emotions brother @kevinhart4real We have a lot more laughing to do together. Love you man. Stay strong 🙏🏾
Big mahalo to my brother @bigsean for sending me his & @asapferg ‘s ( @hitboy ) new track #Beserk with the promise it’ll be a new workout 💪🏾 jam for me. I hear that all the time from my guys who send me their new songs, but they don’t always cut the sweat and mustard to play while I’m training. Happy to report, #Berserk passed the “In Iron Paradise perpetuity” test which means it’ll play in my gym for life along with @therealtechn9ne , Tupac, Metallica, Kendrick, Black Sabbath just to name a few. Keep doin’ it strong brother, congrats on this banger and let’s get that workout in down the road. #bezerk #ironparadise #perpetuity
Blood flow finisher. If your gym has an iso-lateral high row, try coming to the outside and change your grip to high and wide. Control your movement for an insane isolated lat stretch and contraction. Though Im on my honeymoon, after I put all my girls to bed - I’m hitting the iron and getting after it. No excuses. Over here getting all kinds of honeymoon pumps in 😉💪🏾 #ironparadise #islandstyle #latenightbloodflow
Unsurprisingly, my feet🦶🏽and my dog 🐶 overshadowing my face in the iconic city where I started my career, NYC. Nice launch of my first @vossworld campaign as the brand’s new strategic advisor as Voss expands into new international territories, including China. I took an ownership stake in the company because I believe in the leadership, direction, quality and new health and wellness products we’ll create and deliver to you in the future. Congrats Voss team on a great launch. And congrats to my bulldog for stealing the show, as per yoosh. In this life, you get out what you put in. #liveeverydrop #vossboss #owner @danielkellyfilm 📸
Daddy’s gotta go to work😉💧💪🏾 Cool gift waiting in my office from my partners at @vossworld Thank you team and success is always better when it’s shared, so cheers 🥂 to #hobbsandshaw’s success. I look forward to our future work and expansions together. #liveeverydrop #likeavoss #strategicadvisor
