Throughout his entire life, the one-time richest man on Earth looked like your average nextdoor type sales manager. However, a couple of years ago, the now 57-year-old founder of Amazon apparently decided to add buff to his image, so he went to the gym.
During their Christmas break in St. Barts in the Caribbean over the weekend, Jeff Bezos and his new girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, 52, were caught bathing in the sun, rubbing each other's back while on a yacht.
The internet could not help but notice the new buffed looks of Bezos, wearing no shirt and exposing a super-jacked physique. And many have assumed that at his rather considerable age, he could only achieve his current physique through the use of human growth hormones (HGH).
However, according to a TMZ report, this is not the case with the world-famous billionaire.
Instead, Wes Okerson, a celebrity trainer, has started working out with the Amazon CEO. Bezos had reportedly been on a strict diet and workout routine for months, including that the businessman always manages to sleep at least 8 hours to keep his body in good shape.
The outlet's source dismissed the claims of him using hormones to pump up his body, adding that the result everybody was astonished by is purely laborious and painstaking work on himself.

The portfolio of the star trainer includes such adherents of a healthy lifestyle as famous actor Tom Cruise and his ex-wife Katie Holmes, as well as Gerard Butler, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Isla Fisher.
Recently, Sanchez herself has praised Okerson's dedication. She posted on Instagram, when he "liked" a photo of her and Bezos paddling a canoe, to which she replied: "Good Job Wes!"
Some on social media joked recalling a recent incident at the 10th Annual Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Film Gala, which was also attended by Leonardo DiCaprio, who, at one point, grabbed the attention of Bezos' girlfriend.
In response to the big hype this gathered online, Bezos posted a photo on Twitter that showed himself posing behind a sign that reads, "Danger! Steep cliff. Fatal drop", and asked DiCaprio to come to take a look.
