Who doesn’t want those famous Michelle Obama arms?
On Monday, the former First Lady shared a series of photos on her Instagram account, showcasing her perfect plank pose and her girlfriends all working out together.
When I was at the White House, I often hosted bootcamp weekends for my close girlfriends. It didn’t matter that we were all at varying fitness levels. Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first. And even though I’m no longer at the White House, I’ve continued this tradition and wanted to share some photos. My girlfriends have been there for me through all kinds of life transitions over the years – including a pretty big one recently! – and we’ve done our best to stay healthy together. Whether it’s a bootcamp or a walk around the neighborhood, I hope you and your crew can find some time this summer to be healthy together.
A fitness bootcamp that even a couch potato would want to attend, the longtime champion of fitness shares the importance of healthy friendships and healthy living with her Instagram caption.
In her Instagram caption, Obama writes, “My girlfriends have been there for me through all kinds of life transition over the years – including a pretty big one recently! – and we’ve done our best to stay healthy together”.
Accountability partners for the win!
This tradition that started when her official address was 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, which shows no sign on stopping any time soon, simply gives us another reason to love Michelle.
Instead of meeting up with your girlfriends at a restaurant, walk around the block together! That’s what Michelle would want.
