The founder of Health Fitness Revolution and renowned fitness expert Samir Becic challenged President Barack Obama to perform 25 push-ups. Becic’s challenge comes to light as Health Fitness Revolution non-profit movement launches their #PushUpsEverywhere campaign, an effort to promote a healthy and fit lifestyle.
The fitness expert’s challenge to the president is an homage for the American leader to set the standards for Americans.
“This challenges launches our campaign of doing push-ups everywhere, anywhere, at any time,” Becic said.
Becic’s call to prioritize the obesity epidemic arrives as President Obama meets with the United Nations this week to discuss myriad global issues. Obesity can be as large a humanitarian concern as hunger and malnutrition due to the dire health consequences. Statisitics show by 2030, 51 percent of the population will be obese.
“Sixty to seventy percent of chronic illnesses are associated with obesity,” Becic said. “These numbers can prove fatal for the growth of humanity.”
The fitness expert commended First Lady Michelle Obama’s incentive to prioritize health in the United States. Her involvement in promoting health and fitness to all audiences established standards for a healthy lifestyle.
“But because this great nation is suffering so severely from the obesity epidemic, I would love for the president to lead this challenge,” Becic said.
While Becic challenges the President to 25 push-ups, he challenges the rest of America to do 10. He asks that viewers do their push-ups everywhere, anywhere, during any situation, and at any time. He says to then post the video, challenge two friends, and #PushUpsEverywhere.
