Elon Musk has transformed his body, cutting more than 13 kg (~30 lb) by adhering to a regiment of Brazilin Jiu-Jitsu, weight lifting, running, and a healthy diet low in sugar.
Tech billionaire, Tesla, and Space X founder, PayPal co-founder, and as of not that long ago, Twitter CEO, Elon Musk is actively training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, along with other martial arts, attributing a lot of his recent successful weight loss to the Gentle art.

Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and taking Ozempic/Wegovy in order to control it, a training regiment was a must for the Twitter CEO, and Elon Musk being, well, Elon Musk, decided to organize it to perfection, just like any other endeavor in his life.
Elon “dabbles” in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo, sometimes spicing things up with Karate training, on top of training weightlifting and regular running conditioning, mostly done on the treadmill.
