Obama, Biden star in workout video

Feb. 28: Jogging around the White House in suit and tie to the Superstars theme tune, President Barack Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden raise awareness of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign

From the Oval Office, down the corridor past Bo, outside through the covered walkway and... back to work.

No, you’re not dreaming. Barack Obama and Joe Biden really have been jogging around the White House.

The President and his deputy were filmed “working out” in between meetings and signing documents to the Superstars TV show theme tune (better known in the US as the Monday Night Football music).

Other than working off the effects of all those state dinners, their aim was to raise more awareness of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign which tackles child obesity.

According to the video, the pair were persuaded to get their sweat on “in response to the overwhelming number of people around the country who showed us how they move using the hashtag #LetsMove”. First Lady Michelle Obama set up the Let’s Move campaign four years ago to tackle the problem of obesity among American children and to help them lead a healthy life.
