Move over Michelle Obama -- there's a new prophet of physical fitness taking Washington by storm. And while the mainstream media may swoon over the First Lady's toned arms, Republican Rep. Adam Schock is putting his own fit physique out there as a positive example of how dedication and hard work can pay off in big ways.
While he's certainly earned the right to show off his trim figure, the Illinois congressman is using his muscle -- physical and political -- to challenge other Americans to shape up:
You have the power to change your life for the better. By making smart, simple food and fitness choices, you can take control of your health—and look and feel better than you have in years! (And you’ll even be helping our nation in the bargain.)
With the Fit for Life Summer Challenge, I’m challenging you—and all Americans—to sign up for an easy weight-loss plan than can help you drop 10, 20, even 30 pounds or more by Labor Day and get in the best shape of your life. I’ve teamed with Men’s Health and Women’s Health magazines to design a program that’s so easy and effective that I know it will work for you. (And it’s free!) By the end of the summer, you can slash your risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and many other diseases dramatically!
Are you looking to get in shape like Rep. Schock? According to Gawker, the toned congressman credits his success to "weight training, running 5 miles a day, and doing the silly P90X exercise DVD."
