I was super excited to learn that Rep. Paul Ryan does P90X workout! On Capitol Hill, he is often seen in the House gym doing P90X. Paul Ryan has spoken publicly about his exercise regimen, showing how dedicated he is to his health. When asked by TMZ what his workout regimen is, he answer, “What’s my work out? P90X and Insanity.”
I love to hear that. Whether it’s a politician or a regular person like you and me, people choosing to be healthy and fit make me happy!
Ryan is very committed to health and fitness and understands the importance of it. He lost both his father and grandfather at very young ages to heart attacks. That was the incentive that Paul Ryan needed to lead a life of health from a young age. And now, “Paul Ryan does P90X workout” to keep himself at an amazing shape at 6 feet, 2 inches, 163 pounds and 6%-8% body fat. Of course it’s not just about exercise, it’s obvious that he is keeping healthy eating habits too.
Paul Ryan Does P90X Workout at the Gym with Congress Members
Paul Ryan also leads a P90X class for members of congress. I am not surprised by this as he used to be a personal trainer in his younger years. This certainly caught the attention of Tony Horton, the creator of P90X. He works out with them every few months when he visits Washington. According to Tony Horton, his has a blast working out at the Congressional gym with his workout buddies, Kevin McCarthy [R-California], Heath Shuler [D-N.C.], Jesse Jackson, Jr. [D-Illinois], and many more. How fun is that?
When asked what attracts these politicians to the workout, Tony Horton knows it’s all about the results they get from P90X. Tony and Paul even posed for a picture (see above), both showing off their big guns!
Even on the campaign trail, which can be grueling, Paul Ryan hits the gym early in the morning to do P90X using his iPad. Good thing the P90X app is available for situations like that!
