A healthy mind and body is essential to efficiently deal with weighty matters. There are some world leaders who lead by example. Amidst running their countries, these leaders always find time for a run. Their commitment to wellbeing is an example for us all. Let’s take a look at some ‘fitness freak’ leaders.

1. Vladimir Putin
An active judoka, Putin is a master of martial arts. Swimming and weight lifting are integral to his fitness regime. He also pursues horse riding, skiing, badminton, hockey, cycling and fishing.

Trudeau’s love for yoga takes his fitness a notch higher. This former bungee jump coach and snowboarding instructor is a true sports enthusiast. He has trained in boxing for many years. He often indulges in kayaking and white-water rafting. Unlike most of his countrymen, Canada’s liberal prime minister stays away from coffee.

The Obamas have certainly brought health consciousness to the most obese country.
