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! This list is ranked in alphabetical order and frequently updated:
Jill Stein, 64
Fitness Grade: B
(Note: Previous grade was B+)
Jill Stein is a physician and teacher of internal medicine, and has been a long-time advocate of making the planet healthy as well as the people. She created the “Healthy People, Healthy Planet” program, which reveals the links between the human health, climate security and green economic revitalization. She has won multiple awards for her efforts to protect public health. In terms of her diet, she eats mostly organic, because it is both healthy for her body and more environmentally sustainable.
Samir’s Report and Recommendations: I know she is very active in promoting public health and personal health, my recommendation would also be that she promote physical fitness as part of her program. We couldn’t find anything on her fitness routine but she clearly works out. I hope she will begin to publicize her physical fitness routine as part of her healthy lifestyle and green agenda.
Update: Considering that we cannot find any new updated news on Jill’s efforts to exercise or promote healthy lifestyle, her grade is going from B+ to B.
