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.

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.
