All About Lenny Kravitz
Lenny Kravitz Bio
Lenny Kravitz is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and music producer known best for his distinctive retro sense of fashion and music sensibility. His musical compositions are heavily inspired by blues, soul, funk, and garage rock of the 1960s and 1970s. Kravitz cites his parents’ musical tastes during this time as inspiration for his own musical sensibilities. He recalls feeling drawn to music, primarily drums, as early as age three.
Kravitz was born on May 26, 1964 in Manhattan, New York. However, ten years later, in 1964, his family moved to Los Angeles, California where his mother, an actress, accepted the role of Helen Willis on the widely popular 1970s sitcom, The Jeffersons. Kravitz’ father also worked in television as a news anchor for NBC.
Lenny Kravitz Body Measurements
Kravitz has always been health conscious. From an early age, he took it upon himself to eat healthy and exercise regularly. These days, Kravitz enjoys a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. He also maintains a simple, yet robust exercise routine, which he first developed in order to stay fit while on tour. To that end, his workout routine is virtually free of exercise equipment. Kravitz spends most of his exercise time devoted to cardio-related activities such as jogging. However, in addition to his music, Kravitz is known for his muscular physique. In numerous interviews, Kravitz has attributed his large chest and biceps to pushups. When he has the time and space, Kravitz will also lift weights, though it isn’t a regular activity for him. Kravitz’ favorite weight lifting exercises are arm curls and bench presses. Kravitz has also spoken of practicing yoga, which he likes because it integrates the breath with postures that tone muscles. As a deeply spiritual person, Kravitz also appreciates that yoga is rooted in ancient spiritual traditions. Kravitz continues to incorporate spirituality into all aspects of his life; in a recent interview, Kravitz spoke about a preference for running in nature as opposed to going to the gym because being out in nature is, again, a very spiritual experience for him.
