New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is not among the NFL head coaches lacking care about their physical well-being. The legendary head coach has been seen on different occasions working out in the gym during the offseason over the years. In 2014, while he was pumping iron, it was his choice of outfit that caught the eye of NFL fans.

He was working out with his girlfriend, Linda Holliday, before the 2014 campaign as both worked on some arm exercises while using the gym equipment. However, the NFL fans noticed that the 6-time Super Bowl-winning HC was wearing his trademark cut-off hoodie as his attire.

Even one of his former Patriots players and WR Julian Edelman was also marveling at his coach’s workout form.
