Barack Obama is considered to be one of the fittest presidents that have ever been elected. He admits that he does smoke the occasional cigarette, but he is generally a very healthy person.

So what tips can you steal from the President?

“I tend to be a healthy eater. So I probably could get away with cutting my workouts back a little bit. The main reason I do it is just to clear my head and relieve me of stress. It’s a great way to stay focused.”

Here are just a few of things the President does to stay healthy:

He works out regularly…

Obama runs everyday. Cardio fitness plays a large role in maintaining his slim figure. He does not carry much muscle, and has almost no excess fat. He runs approximately 3 miles everyday that he can.

His typical workout is 45 minutes long; he does cardio two days a week and weight training four days, alternating between lower and upper-body workouts.

President Obama also has a tradition of playing pick-up basketball on important occasions.

At the White House, President Obama has quick access to an outdoor basketball court and indoor gym equipment (not to mention a bowling alley, swimming pool, and jogging track). He can even have a treadmill on Air Force One.
