As founder of Health Fitness Revolution and author of the Amazon best-selling book “ReSYNC Your Life“, Samir is spearheading the largest population health movement since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990s initiatives as President George Bush Sr.’s “Fitness Czar”. Since 2020, he has dedicated and sent over 2,000 copies of his book to politicians, Fortune 500 CEOs, and school district leaders to motivate change. This is in addition to ranking and highlighting the 500 most influential celebrities in America (actors, musicians, comedians, chefs) on health and fitness. Through his Health Fitness Revolution organization and advocacy efforts, Samir’s message has directly reached over 16 million people across the U.S. He continues to encourage supportive policies and workplace wellness programs among American leaders.
