Why To Exercise Today: Because Very Smart People Do It

Tucked into this excellent profile of genomics guru Eric Lander, director of the Broad Institute — (a complimentary profile like this, with not a negative word, is known in the trade as a "big sloppy kiss") — is a glimpse of his inspiring daily fitness regimen:

His days start and end in a gym on the second floor of his house, where he has an elliptical cross-trainer. He uses it for two 40-minute sessions, one in the morning and one at night, watching Netflix videos and burning — according to the machine — 1,000 calories a day. He reports that he lost 42 pounds last summer without changing his diet.

Surely if Lander can carve out enough time to work out — every morning and night — you can too.
