LIMA – Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski and several Cabinet members worked out Thursday before holding the first Council of Ministers meeting.
“We want to promote health, a healthy mind in a healthy body, we should not forget that the Pan American (Games) are coming in 2019, and we want everyone to be aware of that, to be in shape and full of life,” Kuczynski told reporters after the workout in the Government Palace’s courtyard.
The president, wearing a sweatsuit and running shoes, and 12 of his 19 Cabinet ministers worked out with two coaches.
“Old people can also exercise,” the 77-year-old Kuczynski said, adding that the routine was similar to Pilates.
Every Cabinet meeting will start with an exercise routine, Kuczynski said.
The president exercises daily at a gym near his home in Lima’s San Isidro district and worked out while on the campaign trail.
