In the recent Democratic Debates in South Carolina, two candidates outshone the others in their promotion of a healthy lifestyle- Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

Bravo Mayor @mikebloomberg for taking proactive stances when it came to making New York City residents healthier and fitter. From 2002 to 2009 adult smoking decreased by 27 percent in the city, and the life span of the average New Yorker rose by 3 years. You are a true Patriot!
As a Mayor, Mike Bloomberg (also on our Top 15 Fittest Billionaires 2017 list) encouraged citizens of New York City to get healthy and fit with a “Make NYC Your Gym” movement. He said at the time “New York City is a great place to get healthy and keep fit — anyone can make the parks, streets, and sidewalks into their own personal gym.” Bloomberg targeted unhealthy lifestyles during his 12-year run, unlike any other administration before him- and it worked- adult smoking decreased by 27% in the city, and the life span of the average New Yorker rose by 3 years.
Vice President Joe Biden announced he would put $50 billion towards obesity and diabetes. In addition, he’s super fit himself, and known for working out daily.
Here’s what our founder Samir Becic had to say about the candidates:
