Rep. Paul Ryan is an inspiration since his workout has catapulted him into being one of the few people in the political field to have taken fitness as an important part of life. He trains under the P90X workout which was famously quoted in The Lazy Song by artist Bruno Mars.

“I’m kind of a workout guy. I’ve always been into it. [Former Mich. Rep.] Bart Stupak and I lead [P90X classes] — there’s about a dozen of us that do it,” Ryan told Politico. “It works because it hits your body in many different ways: pull-ups, sit-ups, lots of cardio, karate, jump training, yoga. It pushes your body…and gets you out of your plateau.”

The P90X program combines a mixture of different exercises to bring together one strong fitness workout. Everything from cardio to weight lifting is explained in full in the P90X workout. P90X, however, isn’t for the faint of heart since it has even been exclaimed by Paul himself that it is “insane”.

P90X has been considered as one of the most difficult but also the most powerful workout programs available for men and women alike. It has sold more than 3.5 million copies since its initial release back in 2005.

Even his critics agree, the Congressman’s personal health priorities are in the right place:

“It can only do us good as a nation to have as a role model such a fine physical specimen in high office. Hopefully, Ryan will inspire more Americans to get healthy. That’s important, because if Ryan succeeds in ending Medicare, they won’t be able to afford getting sick.”
