Leading a healthy and disciplined lifestyle often involves adopting specific habits over the years. Jeff Bezos, the founder, executive chairman, and former president and CEO of Amazon, exemplifies this commitment. Even at the age of 59, Bezos continues to prioritize his fitness routine, earning praise from his fiancée, Lauren Sanchez, who describes him as a ‘monster’ in the gym.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Sanchez shed light on their joint workout sessions, emphasizing that they “cannot do the same exercises” as Bezos operates “on a whole different level.” She shared insights into his rigorous gym routine, portraying Bezos as a fitness enthusiast who consistently pushes his limits.
Sanchez had previously showcased Bezos’s fit physique in a shirtless picture posted on Instagram in July 2023. The image, featuring Bezos in palm-print swim trunks emerging from the sea onto his yacht, sparked admiration. Sanchez’s caption humorously remarked, “Is it just me, or is it hot outside?”
Speculations on Bezos’s body transformation surfaced earlier this year in an article by Body and Soul, suggesting that his body fat percentage could now range from “12-14 per cent.” The article also detailed Bezos’s daily routine, highlighting his preference for a leisurely morning and a protein-rich, high-fat diet. His personal trainer, Wes Okerson, reportedly focuses on low-impact, high-resistance exercises like rowing and weightlifting to enhance strength and endurance.
When Bezos opts for outdoor workouts, he engages in activities such as kayaking, paddle-boarding, or running up hills. The Vogue interview revealed that the power couple adheres to a 9:30 pm bedtime routine after unwinding with some television.
In a 2018 interview with David Rubenstein, co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group, Bezos emphasized the importance of sleep. He advocated for getting eight hours of sleep to make crucial decisions effectively, stating that prioritizing sleep improves his thinking, energy levels, and mood. Bezos strategically schedules mentally challenging decisions before lunch or defers them until the following morning, ensuring he operates at his best.
Jeff Bezos’s dedication to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, both in terms of fitness and sleep, provides a glimpse into the habits that contribute to his continued success and well-being.
