Obama Fitness Watch, Cont'd
Our 44th president, it appears, will be every bit as exercise mad as the 43rd. Here's the early bulletin from this morning's Obama pool reporter, Janet Adamy of Dow Jones:
"At 7:35 a.m. central time, Barack Obama left his home in Hyde Park. About five minutes later, he arrived at the Regents Park luxury apartments for a workout."
This demanded further inquiry. A check of the Regents Park website reveals the following about the health club:
"Become part of a remarkable group of neighbors who enjoy top award-winning amenities. Relax and unwind in a year-round tropical environment lush with greenery and serene waterfalls. Take an invigorating swim in our 20 yard pool or get your heart pumping in the fitness center! The Regents Club offers beautifully maintained equipment from Cybex, Life Fitness, and Precor along with a sauna, whirlpool and free weight room."
Still, this gave few clues about the president-elect's regimen. Cardio or weights? Elliptical or treadmill? Shower at gym or at home? The questions were put to ace Obama spokeswoman Jill Psaki, whose answers were prompt and direct:
1. "Usually a combo of cardio and weights."
2. "Uses both elliptical and treadmill, depending on the day."
3. "Showers at home."
Or at least he claims he showers at home. The only people close enough to him recently to know for sure are Michelle, the Secret Service and President Bush -- and they're not talking.
