Obama Works out in Atayne…

Not quite yet, but don’t you think if he knew about Atayne he would?  As the story goes, Obama is quite the fitness junky. Outside of one horrible vice, smoking, which he is very close to kicking, Obama will likely prove to be a great model of fitness for the US, where over 1 out every 3 adults are obese.

On January 20, 2009, the US (and the world at large) will witness incredible change as Barack Obama is inaugurated as the first black President of the United States.  The US was founded on the premise that “all men (and women) are created equal”, it just took us 225+ years to make that a reality at the highest echelon.  The Obama/Biden victory t-shirt rings true, “Change Can Happen.”

In this time of change, I would like to challenge our new President to make two personal changes.

  1. Quit smoking.  Do it for your children and for the children of the world.  Be a true example of health and fitness for a country that needs it.
  2. Change your fitness gear.  Wear something in line with your values.  Something to help inspire environmental and social change.  Wear Atayne!

There is not much we can do about the first one.  That is something he must tackle on his own.  But as for the second, maybe we have a shot.

According to the theory of Six Degrees of Separation, “everyone is an average of six ‘steps’ away from each person on Earth.”  I think somewhere in the Atayne community we have a connection to President-elect Obama that is closer than 6 steps.  So here is the challenge: before Inauguration Day let’s get the President-elect in an Atayne top.  Think about who you know and who your friends and family might know.  If someone can help us “change” President Obama’s workout attire, then they will get a complimentary Atayne LS and SS top and of course the satisfaction that they are connected to the next President of the United States.

  1. Little known fact: my dad worked closely with him during his campaign for the Illinois senate seat and they still exchange Christmas cards (I know, that’s pretty big time ;)). Worth asking him about slipping him an Atayne top, though!
