Founder of Health Fitness Revolution, four-time No. 1 Fitness Trainer, and author of ReSYNC Your Life, Samir Becic and HFR have been creating lists of the fittest politicians in various branches of government in order to motivate Americans to embrace a healthier lifestyle.
Part of Samir’s campaign as the newly appointed “Fitness Czar” of Houston is to interview all the physically fittest leading politicians in America in order to promote their healthy lifestyles and policies.
It’s safe to say that Samir was blown away by the fitness level of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler! Wheeler made an irrefutable case as to why he is undoubtedly one of the FITTEST politicians in America.

Starting his day at 4:45 am to train for Ironman races, Mayor Wheeler pushes his body to its limits by swimming, biking, running, and fueling his body with the right nutrition.
Mayor Wheeler not only impressed Samir with his physicality, but his mindset and dedication to fitness is truly amazing. He has hiked Mount Everest (several times), ran several Ironmans (including Hawaii), and even went snowshoeing in Alaska on his honeymoon!
When Samir asked Mayor Wheeler who inspires him in fitness, he quickly answered Hiromu Inada, who, at 85-years old, became the oldest Kona Ironman finisher. He recounts competing alongside Hiromu in Kona and finds that staying fit, NO MATTER YOUR AGE, is truly motivating and something to aspire towards.
What is so inspirational about Mayor Wheeler is that he stays fit and active in order to motivate others to get up and move. If he can do it, anyone can! Mayor Ted Wheeler, you ROCK!
Have a listen to find out what motivates the Mayor, how he stays fit, and his ideas when it comes to motivating his constituents to live healthy!
