Shark Tank Investor Kevin O’Leary Exercise Routine Verified

Zero Hedge is featuring this list of early morning routines that was broadcast via Twitter by the World Economic Forum:

In an expansion on the list, ZH reports this:
They exercise before it falls off the to-do list.
The top morning activity of the rich and powerful seems to be exercise, be it lifting weights at home or going to the gym.
For example, Vanderkam notes that Xerox CEO Ursula Burns schedules an hour-long personal training session at 6 a.m. twice a week. Plus, “Shark Tank” investor Kevin O’Leary gets up at 5:45 every morning and jumps on the elliptical or exercise bike, and entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk starts every day with an hour-long workout with his trainer. “These are incredibly busy people,” says Vanderkam. “If they make time to exercise, it must be important.”
Beyond the fact that exercising in the morning means they can’t later run out of time, Vanderkam says a pre-breakfast workout helps reduce stress later in the day, counteracts the effects of high-fat diet, and improves sleep.

I can verify the O'Leary workout, He was in San Francisco about a week ago, apparently staying at the hotel affiliated with my gym. He showed up at the gym, although, I think it was closer to 5:30 than 5:45.

A newspaper in hand, he eyed the gym equipment and stepped on a jogging machine.



  1. I'm confused. The ZH article seems to be excoriating the list, not H/T-ing it. Am I missing something?

  2. Robert, your missing the fact that ZH has figured out that it can get a lot more eye-balls if it goes progressive. Take a look at the reader comments to that article.

    1. In my time of reading ZH commenters seem to all over the place, when I first starting reading it about five years ago it was mostly libertarians with the occasional leftist. Over the past year more conservative and neoreactionary commenters have shown up which was caused by a radio host (I think Limbaugh not sure) who cited ZH as a source.
