The 2016 Presidential election might be more than a year away, but the next presidential hopefuls are already coming to the forefront. The President of the U.S. is not only the leader of the free democratic world, but also an example to us, our children, and indeed the rest of the world. Because of this, presidents have a moral and ethical responsibility to serve as a good example – and this extends to the way they live their lives as well.
“The president’s job is a very stressful one that requires him or her to be on duty 24/7. The stress that they are exposed to can affect their health so drastically that if they don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle, they can be subjected to any number of chronic illnesses – both physical and mental,” said HFR Founder Samir Becic. We are noticing an increase in healthy and fit heads of state in other countries who are becoming dominant world leaders. With this article we hope to make sure that our future president is healthy and fit in order to improve this country, so that it can continue to be a dominant force in the world for decades to come.
“Our future president will have much more competition than the previous presidents because of where the modern world is heading – and against other leaders whose views differ, such as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.” – Samir Becic
With this being said, HFR is politically neutral and not affiliated with any political party.
Here at Health Fitness Revolution, we did a combination of research on each of these politicians through various interviews, internet sources, library, industry literature and videos. This project was led by HFR founder Samir Becic, who is a leader in the industry and has knowledge and experience of over two decades as a health and fitness professional, coupled with his experience as a four-time No. 1 Fitness Trainer in the World.
Hopefully this motivates these presidential hopefuls to improve their nutrition, fitness and advocacy about healthy lifestyle in the next couple years – who knows, maybe in our next report card, we can give them all A’s!
PAUL RYAN, 44
FITNESS GRADE: A
(Note: Previous grade was A)
Working out and eating healthy has always been a top priority of Paul Ryan – even throughout all the elections, campaigning, and traveling across the country. He even made our list of Fittest American Politicians. His experience as a personal trainer helps him stay fit both in Washington and on the road. He leads a class in fitness right on Capitol Hill. While on the road, he retains loads of energy by avoiding fast food and desserts almost entirely. He will need this energy if he runs for President in 2016!
Samir’s Report and Recommendations: Ryan is one of the fittest politicians in the U.S. He is extremely lean and muscular and because he used to be a personal trainer, he knows what it takes to maintain a healthy lifestyle and promote it. Because he trains a lot, I would suggest to him some foods that naturally help the body relax. I applaud him for his public display of physical fitness and healthy lifestyle – and the fact that he pushed his 2012 running mate Mitt Romney (who also made our Fittest American Politicians list) to workout during their campaign.
Update: Paul Ryan continues to be the fittest politician in America.
