No pain, no gain. In early April 2014 the Polish tabloid “Fakt” (great name, by the way) posted a video and series of photos (http://www.fakt.pl/barack-obama-na-silowni-fakt-z-obama-na-silowni-film,artykuly,465557,1.html) of Barack obama working out in a Marriott gym. In an effort to get swole for his meetings with European leaders, obama was videotaped pumping iron with what looked like five and ten pound dumbbells. Curls, lunges, shoulder presses, and steps really tone the more intimidating muscles, as you probably know. This is why he’s built like a pro athlete and is awesome at basketball. The video then cuts to the President going aggro on the elliptical like a boss. He was working out almost as hard as the fat guy at my gym. Now this is just speculation, but I’d imagine that he followed up that intense workout with a few celery sticks dipped in organic peanut butter.
Obviously, the White House was very unhappy about this video being released. I know I would be pissed if someone videotaped me working out at a god awful hotel gym. The administration is now investigating the Secret Service to find out whose camera captured the video and why the Secret Service did not detect the camera when they swept the room for security purposes.
Vladimir Putin, currently wrestling bears in Siberia, was unavailable for comment.
