Peru's new President is making his cabinet exercise in public every week

(VICE News) Peru's new president, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, has launched a national fitness campaign with an exercise session of his entire cabinet in the courtyard in front of the presidential palace in Lima.
The 77-year-old Kuczynski danced, bounced, and struggled to touch his toes to electronic music. He was obviously more at home when talking to reporters later, even reaching for his classical education.
"Mens sana in corpore sano, as the Latin proverb says" Kuczynski said, without providing a translation, perhaps cementing his elitist image even as he proved he is not afraid of not looking cool. "We truly want to promote health."
The president, known widely as PPK, said the routine would be repeated before every Wednesday meeting of his largely male and somewhat chubby cabinet, which is dominated by Ivy League graduates like him.
