The Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan is well known for keeping fit on a daily basis.

It is said that nearly every morning he conducts the gruelling "P90X" workout, which focuses on constantly changing the muscle groups being exercised.

During his trip to Mr Ryan's home state of Wisconsin, the BBC's Jamie Coomarasamy dropped into a local gym to get a taste of staying in shape the Paul Ryan way.
