Obama starts his morning with a workout


POSTED: Wednesday, December 30, 2009


President Barack Obama maintained his vacation fitness regime this morning, spending about an hour at the Semper Fit gym as he has done every morning since arriving in Hawaii last week.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama left their Kailua compound just before 7:30 a.m. for the short drive to the gym on Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe.

A few dozen people had gathered around a barricade set up in front of the gym to snap pictures and see the president.

The president's motorcade left the gym at 8:29 a.m. and arrived back at the Kailua compound seven minutes later.
