However, you will likely find that this select group of individuals understand better than anyone that staying fit is a crucial part of their continued success. Numerous studies have shown that regular physical activity can significantly boost your mood, quality of sleep, energy and most importantly – productivity.

Included in this are the exercise routines of 36 of the most accomplished individuals from the world of business, as well as an estimate of how many calories these people burn on a daily and weekly basis.

This sees him burn approximately 600 calories daily, or 4,299 calories on a weekly basis. Frits van Paasschen, the former CEO of Starwood Hotels, on the other hand, manages to squeeze in a modest 10 mile run every day.
