When you’re this big, they call you mister. When you’ve been called Mr. Universe, you kind of get intimidated. So, what happened when Chuck Williams, former Mr. Universe asks us all if we worked out that day? Not sure of what might happen after we answer, people in the room, raised their hands quickly, others raised their hands cautiously and others, just kept eating the ensaymada appetizers.
It was a simple survey with one fact that made everyone think. Mr. Universe said that was just a half hour a day of exercise a week can add 2 years to your life.
It was quite the statement and the guy eating the ensaymada now felt guilty. Another 30 minute workout was needed to work off all the calories and gain 2 years in life. By many accounts, a lot of people from that evening have acted on some of the motivating points. He is after all, Mr. Universe.
