Just one politician per day works out in the Dáil gym.
TDs and Senators visited the Oireachtas fitness suite just 394 times last year, despite it being free.
According to new figures released under the Freedom of Information Act to the Irish Mirror, non-elected Leinster House staff made up 92% of the total visits in 2018.
Just two Dáil deputies worked out in the gym last August when the Dáil was in recess.
An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is a known fitness fan, and was recently downcast to be told on Operation Transformation that he had a metabolic age of 53 (ie the amount of energy burnt per day before physical activity). He turned 40 in January.
