Jake Steinfeld continued his cross-country tour Thursday, stopping off in New Jersey, where he joined Gov. Chris Christie and Coca-Cola president Steve Cahillane for a ribbon-cutting on Live Positively Fitness Center.
“This is a great day for New Jersey and students throughout the state,” Christie said. “I am honored to have teamed up with Jake Steinfeld to promote the National Champion schools program in New Jersey and see three of our schools win a Live Positively Fitness Center.”
The Brooklyn-born strongman, who’s served as chairman for the National Foundation for Governors’ Fitness Councils for more than two years, spoke with Fox’s Neil Cavuto following the event.
“We want to give the schools the tools … that’s what we have to do to help this young generation. This isn’t a whole Democrat-Republican issue,” he said, stressing the overall goal of getting kids into healthy habits.
“I’m focusing on getting the job done: We’ve declared war on childhood obesity,” said Jake, who also dedicated a center alongside Delaware Gov. Jack Markell this week.
He also took the Fox host to task after he criticized Governor Christie’s weight loss journey. Watch the full interview here.
