Kamran Kam, 25, claims that he is too fit to work. He says that having a 9-5 job would interfere with his workout regime so he’s happy living on £72.50 ($110) JobSeeker’s Allowance. Mr. Kam also believes that more money should be given for the super-fit so they can stay in shape.
He told the Daily Mail: ‘I’ve had all sorts of jobs, from admin and customer service work, to kitchen and security placements. The problem was, all the positions were way too boring for me.
‘Not only that, I wasn’t happy about paying taxes that go towards people who are sitting at home all day and making no contribution to society – especially overweight people who spend all their benefits on junk food and cigarettes.
‘I, on the other hand, am extremely dedicated to my fitness, and I simply don’t have time to waste spending all day doing a monotonous job, so in November last year I decided to give up work altogether.

‘I am now happy to say I’m too busy staying fit, doing Kung Fu and loving life to get a 9-5.’
One of his justifications, according to the Mail, is that fit people shouldn’t have to pay taxes so that fat people can get treated on the NHS.
He added: ‘What I’m doing with my life is far more of a testament to my country than pen pushing all day in some office job I don’t enjoy.
‘The government should give free gym membership and fitness courses – but only to the super-fit’.
Mr Kam says that he hopes one day to be a martial arts actor in the cinema, comparing himself to Jean-Claude Van Damme (who appeared in his first film when he was 19).
