Michelle Workin’ it Out!

By  | 

So I’m loving the fact at 45 years young, our girl Michelle Obama STILL knows how to double dutch and hula hoop with the best of ’em. Clearly not afraid to let her hair down, Michelle spent the afternoon hosting a “Healthy Kids Fair” for about 100 local children and their parents. And if this isn’t enough, she also knocked out the agility ladder drill like a football running back, finishing an uphill obstacle course on the White House South Lawn. This is what 45 should look like, ladies…I can dig it!

Michelle Working the Hula Hoop:

*According to the Associated Press, Michelle got in an impressive 142 swivels before her hula hoop touched the ground. Can’t imagine who sat there and counted for her, but that was nice to know.

Be inspired!
