Founder of Health Fitness Revolution and author of ReSYNC Your Life, Samir Becic is leading the most aggressive fitness campaign in America since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s attempt for George Bush Sr.’s administration in the 1990s.
In the 1990s Schwarzenegger met with dozens of leading politicians in order to help them to create their own fitness programs in their states. According to witnesses, he used his own money to fly from one state to another on his mission to make America healthier and fitter.
Almost 25 years later, 4 times #1 Fitness trainer in America by BTF, Samir, started the online resource Health Fitness Revolution in an effort to motivate Americans to live healthier and fitter. In order to do so, the magazine started ranking prominent Americans fitness levels in their respective fields. That is the inspiration behind many of the unique lists that we publish, including the fittest billionaires, religious leaders, churches, politicians, actors, singers, comedians, late night talk show hosts, athletes, among many more.
After having great success and being re-published by local, regional, and national media, we began creating international lists. Our annual list of the Fittest Heads of States that we started in 2013 has been shared by over 10,000 media outlets globally.
However, that was not enough for Samir- so he started extreme physical challenges in order to motivate Americans to be more active. His first experiment was living for 6 weeks while wearing up to an extra 200 lbs weighted vest and pants, and ultimately speed walking for 3 miles at a human body weight of over 500lbs.
Next, he challenged all the leading talk show hosts on social media including Ellen Degeneres, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, and Michael Strahan to walk with them for 3 miles while carrying the equivalent of their weight on his body. He is still waiting for a response.
At the start of 2018, Samir embarked on a highly dangerous challenge (never before done in the world) of running 7 marathons in 8 weeks while wearing the equivalent of the 73.5 lbs weighted vest in an effort to inspire Americans to be more active. This demanding challenge caused extreme body aches and pains for 7 months.
Since extreme personal sacrifice didn’t create enough awareness, Samir has started a new fitness challenge, a follow-up attempt at what Arnold Schwarzenegger began in 1989, with a “Samir” kind of eagerness. He is in the process of interviewing and motivating 100 leading American politicians including governors, senators, congresspeople, and mayors. The idea is to create a massive awareness about the damaging effects of physical stagnation and obesity rate in our society.
“I am positively surprised at how motivated American politicians are in willing to help my efforts in making America a healthier and fitter nation. There are so many politicians that train like athletes and also motivate their constituents to do the same. I am confident that we will make tremendous progress in the next two years. That is also why I wrote an open letter to President Trump to support my efforts. I hope I will get a positive confirmation, because our children will thank us later. America, YOU ROCK!” says Samir Becic.
On November 1st, 2018 Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner proclaimed Samir Becic the “Fitness Czar,” the same title that President Bush Sr. first awarded to Arnold Schwarzenegger 30 years ago.
