Rep. Aaron Schock Flaunts His Abs in Men's Health Cover Story


Republican Congressman Aaron Schock (R-IL) is baring his abs on the cover of Men's Health.

The full "Ripped Representative", as MH refers to him, AFTER THE JUMP...

People reports

Schock, 29, a freshman congressman from Peoria, Ill., is teaming up with the magazine for the Fit For Life Summer Challenge, and says you have to practice what you preach when it comes to proper diet and exercise. 

"If you want to start talking about healthy lifestyles and staying in shape, then you yourself should do your best to try to be a model, an example to people you're trying to convince to do the same," he says. 

Schock, who is single and a conservative Baptist, says he was headed down the wrong path himself at one point. "In college I could feel my body changing, and I knew that if I didn't make some changes, I was going to go in the wrong direction," he says. 

Abs_schock It's not the first time the public has seen Schock's abs. TMZ posted a much-discussed poolside beefcake photo (right) back in 2009.

Our last visit with Schock (R-IL) was in February when he polished his anti-gay credentials and spoke out against Obama's announcement regarding DOMA.

Schock is a 'confirmed bachelor' who is "not" gay though he does occasionally express shame at his flamboyant wardrobe choices and has said that he hopes his chiseled abs will cause people to pause and listen to what he has to say on CNN.

  2. I'm sure he's hot in person, but that picture is so totally airbrushed.

  3. Is that foot-tapping I hear?

  4. I'd hit that... if it had a brain transplant. The one that's in there now is too self-loathing.

  5. Aaron, oh, Aaron. I want you to ravish my apple breast with your big mouth, Aaron.

  6. Gayer than Fire Island crossed with a 365 days a year pride parade.

  7. Thank you, Fittest Congressman, for spending so much time in the gym.

  8. I think he looks great - he may be a bit airbrushed, but there's no doubt he puts a lot of time in at the gym.

    HOWEVER, he's such a tool that it's hard to get past the amazing body.

  9. The fact that he is a Republican makes him ugly and repulsive. I'd rather take an out, liberal, democrat/progressive bear (yumm, woof woof) with a bit of stomach flesh before those abs any day!

  10. His face reminds me of Ted Haggard.

  11. Vegas is taking bets on both if and when this closet queen will officially come out.

  12. So Obama appearing on 'The View' somehow demeans the office of the president; but this guy posing shirtless in a magazine doesn't demean his position in Congress? Gimme a break.

  13. reads GAY.

    my gaydar is going off.

  14. Those scraggly boxers in the last pic. Just...no. "Stylist, you're fired."

  15. ..on a side note he does look like Ted Haggart's lil brother....

  16. Umm doesn't posing on the cover of Men's fitness in and of itself qualify you as gay?? I mean how many gay pornstars have graced the cover of that mag??

  17. Narcissist.

  18. Hey Aaron, I want to see the Stimulus Package.

    Posted by: Dback | May 9, 2011 10:21:44 AM

  19. He's hot, perhaps gay, maybe not. A conservative Baptist, and Republican, sadly not my cup of...

    Posted by: Matt26 | May 9, 2011 10:23:04 AM

  20. Are we to choose between him and Barney Frank?

    Posted by: anon | May 9, 2011 10:25:26 AM

  21. too bad he's ridiculously ugly on the inside.

    so, not really attractive. sorry.

    i mean men's health is a good read--despite this particular cover boy.

  22. what a loser!

    Posted by: jj | May 9, 2011 10:36:05 AM

  23. He is the perfect cover boy for the magazine- the head of the publication is notoriously homophobic.

  24. Wait, wait...I thought Paul Ryan was the fittest congressman. It seemed his Republican colleagues were all gushing over his abs not too long ago.

    @Frumpy Undies: "Those scraggly boxers in the last pic. Just...no. 'Stylist, you're fired'."

    Given Schock's previous fashion choices, I figure his stylist is doing a fabulous job of "straightening" him out. I'd hazard a guess that his real gym attire is a fuchsia singlet.

  25. I personally am not attracted to over-developed gym-bunny body types, although don't care what people do with their body. I like natural healthy body types.

    This dude is obviously narcissistic. And you'd think after previous public questions about his sexuality, he'd tone it down and keep his shirt on, not wear certain *cough* clothes, etc., He's looking for attention in ways that have nothing to do with serious politics and issues. Stuff like this can come back to haunt him. Opponents could have a field day with all the questionable pics of this guy floating around.
