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.

The Body By Jake star praised Christie for his participation in the program, saying "He's a solid citizen, he kind of struggles a little bit, he gets it, he wants to be an example too."
