In an interview with “Good morning everyone”, President Gabriel Boric explained the reasons why he travels to La Moneda by bicycle. “I was overweight. A sedentary life does not help that,” he detailed.
During the morning of this Monday, the President of the Republic, Gabriel Boric , in the middle of an interview on the program “Good Morning Everyone” of TVN, explained the reasons for his trips by bicycle to La Moneda.
In the program, and after being asked about the agenda that awaited him in the district of Pudahuel, the President spoke about a talk that awaited him with older people from that town.
“We are going to talk with older people, precisely to tell them the detail of the pension reform“. This, “in the company of the Minister of Labor, Jeanette Jara”, specified the president.
Boric's bicycle trip: “He was overweight”
Faced with this situation, journalist Eduardo Fuentes alluded to the fact that “I imagine, president, that you will go by car and not by bicycle to Pudahuel (..). The pique is more or less long”.
During that conversation, the main reason Boric pointed out about using this means of transportation was that it was a health reason, related to high triglycerides.
“ ;I had a triglyceride test a while ago, and it was very high. Therefore, you have to be careful. I am 36 years old, I am young, I am still in time to reverse that curve. I was overweight, even a little overweight. The sedentary life does not help that & # 8220 ;, he detailed.
Given this, the president pointed out that He decided to get psyched up and jog 10 kilometers a day. “That is why I have a treadmill in the office and at home“, said the president.
“The Government has to be on the ground”
On the other hand, while commenting on the objective of his next visit to the district of Pudahuel, the president explained that “the Government has to be on the ground, not only in the office or in the television studio“.
“The great Aguayo duck, the leader of our escort, has told me ‘the best security is what is not seen’ ;. (..) I don't want to be disruptive in this, but I don't want my presence to be a nuisance to neighbors”.
Regarding the above, the presence of the president in the neighborhood Yungay has brought with it a greater presence of Carabineros in the sector, to which the president pointed out that, however, “the vast majority is grateful“.< /p>
