Rob Gronkowski is going au naturel in retirement.
His newest Instagram post depicts his visit to the woods for a mountain biking trip in the great outdoors.
The recently retired Patriots tight end, clad in a vibrant red and blue biking helmet with red gloves to match, posted a sequence of photos Tuesday on Instagram.
“Nature, plants, veggies 🌶 🥬, bike rides till you’re lost🚵♀️ , meditation🧘♂️,” Gronkowski wrote. “All healing energies, bringing life and rejuvenation back to me. Take one day at a time, restore the balance, don’t let anything stand in the way. Take new paths that never been taken before. I know there are many more things out there in this nature world 🌎 that help heal you, so feel free to share in the comments!”
The peaceful, meditative message is a far cry from the hard-working, hard-partying lifestyle Patriots fans became accustomed to during Gronkowski’s nine-year pro career.
In the comments section of Gronkowski’s post, girlfriend Camille Kostek offered him praise: “That’s my boy 👏 we are nothing without health or this earth we walk on 🌎 good energy only ❤️.”
“I’ve never heard you speak like this,” wrote WWE wrestler Dean “Mojo Rawley” Muhtadi, whom Gronkowski assisted at WrestleMania two years ago. “Retirement is weird.”
Former Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich had a simple request for his old teammate:
“Can we rides bikes soon?”
