An influencer has sparked controversy after allegedly claiming sleep is “for poor people”.

Amadeo Lladós, a well-known fitness coach and TikToker, shocked viewers after going viral in a video where he criticises people who sleep eight hours a day.

According to the NHS, adults need around seven to nine hours of sleep a night for the body to be completely rested.

In an interview with fellow TikToker Adrián Sáenz, the 32-year-old reveals that he goes to bed at 1am before getting up four hours later to train.

Amadeo from Madrid, Spain, who lives in Miami, US, also claims that sleep is a “poor” practice.

When the interviewer asked the fitness coach if he’d ever slept eight hours, the influencer appeared agitated.

Amadeo claims this is a “typical” trait of people with less money in the bank.

He also advises people to exercise when they are tired instead of snoozing.

Amadeo added: “I don’t want to sleep.

“My life is so exciting that I don’t want to stop living it.

“Do you want to go to sleep with a mansion worth 20 million, with seven cars outside?

“Your wife, friends, jets?

“People want to sleep because they want to escape from their reality.

“Sleeping eight hours is for the poor.

“It’s sad.”

Viewers have been left shocked at the influencer’s controversial opinion, as reported by What’s The Jam.

One person said: “I’m just tired bro.”
