November 1st, 2018 is the official date that Mayor Sylvester Turner named Health Fitness Revolution founder and ReSYNC Your Life author Samir Becic the official “Fitness Czar” of the City of Houston. In an effort to bring increased health awareness to Houston’s 6.5 million inhabitants, Turner named Samir the city’s “Fitness Guru” a.k.a “Fitness Czar” for his continued efforts at making the city fitter throughout the years.
The title of “Fitness Czar” was first given to Arnold Schwarzenegger by President George Bush Sr. in 1990 in order to promote health and fitness in America. In his role, Arnold approached the majority of the political leaders in the country in an effort to motivate them to advocate for a healthier and fitter nation.

Samir Becic is following in the same footsteps with a renewed eagerness and effort that has not been seen in almost 30 years. The man who was previously named 4 x #1 Fitness Trainer in America has already spoken with dozens of mayors, congresspeople, senators, governors and wrote an open letter to the U.S. President Trump. The response he is getting from leading political figures is very encouraging and he is planning on continuing with the positive momentum into the new year. He is planning on speaking to 300 mayors at the semi-annual Mayor’s Conference in Washington D.C. in January and is working on presenting to the U.S. Congress in 2019.
On his first visit to city hall as “Fitness Czar”, Samir met with many of the city’s employees and presented them a signed copy of his book. He even filmed the first promo for his official role which we will share with you soon! Watch the moment Mayor Turner surprised Samir with the news below:
We are looking forward to all the great upcoming fitness initiatives planned for Houston in 2019. Everyone at Health Fitness Revolution is so proud of you, Samir- Congratulations, you deserve it!
