Here is the President Trump’s fitness profile:
- President Trump used to play a lot of sports and loved them as a teenager, he says he was always a good athlete and played football, baseball, soccer, and wrestled. His favorite, however, was baseball, and he was captain of his high school team.
- President Trump said he had planned going pro in baseball before he got involved in real estate.
- Now he keeps in shape by golfing and going on walks. He claims that golfing is more effective than you might think, and that when he plays several rounds he notices a change in his weight.
- Avoids all drugs, including alcohol and marijuana, having avoided them his whole life. Says the untimely death of his older brother, who was an alcoholic, was a wake up call for him.
“President Trump’s 2007 book “Think Big & Kick Ass” includes a wide variety of life tips, many of which can be applied in the gym.
- Passion: find exercises that you genuinely enjoy and become masters at those, this is the most effective way to stick with a workout routine
- Positivity: Never quit, always believe that your efforts are paying off, even if you don’t see it yet
- Focus: don’t let temptations overcome your goals. Keep your eye on the prize and don’t stop
- Think big: Set deadlines for yourself and set the bar high. You will feel much more accomplished and motivated this way.
Kim Jong-un’s Kim Jong-un, 33, is 5 feet, 9 inches tall, and approximately 250 pounds (about 115 kg). This puts him at a body mass index of nearly 40, which classifies him as severely obese.
- He loves Swiss cheese, a food he has eaten in excessive quantities lately. Considering Kim Jong-un’s position as a leader of Korea, he could very well be under high amounts of stress, which might cause him to eat more.
- He smokes and drinks large amounts of alcohol, his favorite being Johnny Walker.
- He reportedly has a sedentary lifestyle of playing video games.
- His family’s history of poor health includes severe obesity, which both his father and grandfather suffered from.
- In the Korean culture, being overweight is thought to be a sign of good health
- He recently reappeared in the public eye with a limp and a cane, which some experts say could be a sign of gout. The limp could also be because of a fractured ankle due to his quick weight gain.
Kim Jong-un’s health condition could lead to:
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Dyslipidemia (high LDL cholesterol and low HDL cholesterol, or high levels of triglycerides, all of which are caused by a high-fat, low-protein diet that puts him at risk for a heart attack)
- Type II diabetes
- Gall bladder disease
- Some cancers (endometrial, colon or breast)
- Sleep apnea
The average state of health for young men of his age:
- Optimal BMI for a man 5 feet, 9 inches tall and at age 33 should be maximum 24.9, and his weight should be around 160 pounds.
- Ideally, he should stick to a 2,000-calorie diet that is rich in lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, good fats and fiber.
- Diet should include at least 3-4 liters of water a day to flush out toxins, and limit alcohol to moderate amounts.
- Kick bad habits such as smoking and excessive drinking.
- Exercise at least three times a week for 30 minutes a day for weight training, and two times a week for 30 minutes a day for cardio training.
- Practice meditation or pick up a hobby that helps calm and clear the mind to relieve stress.
HFR founder Samir Becic says of the South Korean leader: “Many people ask me if I would like to be a fitness trainer for Kim Jong-un, and I say yes. I would train him just as I would train Pope Francis, who my HFR team and I proclaim to be the fittest spiritual leader in the world. My occupation is focused on fitness and a healthy lifestyle, and I would love nothing more than to help everyone to get fit and healthy. I believe a healthy lifestyle should be a priority over a political agenda.
Samir continues “I have worked with many young men who were unhealthy, obese, depressed and had a negative attitude not only toward themselves but also toward the world. After working with them and helping them get healthy, they became more optimistic, positive, better team players, had lower stress levels and had a happier outlook on their own personal life and toward the world.
