Every year, the Health Fitness Revolution team does extensive research and names the “Top 10 fittest” leaders in various segments of society ranging from spiritual leaders, celebrities, and politicians. We think it’s important to recognize men and women who have made the biggest contributions to making society healthier and fitter through both their examples and actions.
Our methodology for creating the list is as follows: We first research all the available data on hundreds of American politicians, taking into account fitness level, nutritional habits, age, their own medical issues and how they coped with them, and involvement and promotion of healthy lifestyle. Then, we did more extensive research to narrow it down to the final candidates. We used a combination of interviews, internet, library, industry literature, and HFR founder Samir Becic’s knowledge of over 20 years in athletics coupled with his recognition as one of the country’s leading health and fitness experts. Click to read our Fittest American Politicians 2017 list.
Samir Becic voices why it is so important for politicians to stay fit: “America’s leading politicians are in the public eye and have access to other powerful decision makers. They can and should use their unique position to help stop the obesity epidemic in our country. The men and woman on this list deserve recognition because they are great ambassadors for a healthy lifestyle and they lead by example.”
HFR readers, this year we are taking it a step further and letting YOU decide who deserves to be #1!
