Lenny Kravitz works out in leather pants: See why he's 'one of the last true rockstars'

Lenny Kravitz will never sacrifice a rockstar moment, not even during a workout.

The 59-year-old rocker made that much clear this week in a video post on X, formerly Twitter, showing him working out in black leather pants, a mesh top, boots, sunglasses and headphones.

The singer lifted weights on a sit-up bench with his spotter, also cooly rocking sunglasses indoors.

"Thank God for today! Grateful. Never been better," Kravitz captioned the video, which had 24 million views as of Friday. "There are no shortcuts so seize your day. It is all possible. Love!"

The video's audio was replaced by the musician's 2011 song, "Life Ain't Ever Been Better Than It Is Now."

Lenny Kravitz, 59, is serious about his workout, and is stylish while doing it in black leather pants and a mesh top.

"Working out in sunglasses, a mesh top, and leather pants. One of the last true rockstars," one user wrote, while others called Kravitz's workout attire "very unserious" and a "crime."


Though many commenters questioned if the adherence to rockstar style was necessary or even healthy, others were complimentary.

"Only Lenny can work out in leather pants and make it look good," read one comment.

Kravitz told USA TODAY in an interview published last month that he works out "five or six days a week."

"I'm very serious about my training, about what I put in my body. I try to get as much rest as possible, but that is my weakness," he said. "I had a grandfather who always looked 25 years younger than he was, and he did the same thing. He used to get on his bike in his late 80s and ride for five hours.

Almost 60, Lenny Kravitz talks workouts, new music and why he's 'never felt more vibrant'

"We have this thing about age, like we have about race or religion, and these stereotypical ideas about at this point in life you should be doing this or that, and it’s not that way," he continued. "You can be 30 and you can be destroyed and you can be 80 and you can be young and vibrant. If you asked me 'When were you in the best shape of your life?,' it's today, right now."
