Thanks to Vulture, we don't have to wonder:
When Vulture's Jon DeFreest designed a cover for Cut the Schmidt, a Richard Simmons–like guide to healthy living, he and we did not imagine that such a video might ever actually come to be. It was just a small, odd Internet token of admiration. But we were thinking small, and if you know anything about Schmidt — and about Max Greenfield, the actor who plays him on New Girl — you know that he dreams on a grander scale,In my world those New Girl guys are fast becoming the MVP's of the 2012 sitcom season.
especially when it comes to fitness goals. So when he saw the cover, he went and made a real workout video. With spinning! And inspirational thoughts!
