On Michelle Obama: “I think Michelle Obama is on the right track with her Let’s Move campaign to bring down childhood obesity. She and I come from the same state, Illinois, which is number four in the nation for obese children. One out of five Illinois children are considered obese.”
On the responsibility of being a role model:
“If you want to start talking about healthy lifestyles and staying in shape, then you yourself should do your best to try to be a model, an example to people you’re trying to convince to do the same.”
More quotes from Aaron Schock…
On a future in politics: “Public service is a great honor, but it tends to be all-consuming. When I look at that Capitol dome and no longer feel that tingle. Then I’ll know it’s time to go.”
On Exercise v Nutrition: “Exercise is more important that diet for me because it’s a twofer. It keeps me in good physical shape and it relieves stress. And when you’re a representative of the public, there’s never a shortage of things to do”
On working out before sunrise: “It’s got to happen early or it’s not going to happen.”
On his fitness calling: “In college I could feel my body changing, and I knew that if I didn’t make some changes, I was going to go in the wrong direction.”
The June issue of Men’s Health is on newsstands May 24th.
