Hailed as “Bootcamp Weekends,” Obama says she began the practice during her time as first lady with her close friends. With her friends representing a variety of figures, Obama says health–not appearance goes into their workouts.
“Our bootcamp weekends were a reminder that if we want to keep taking care of others, we need to take care of ourselves first,” she said. “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.”
Planks, lunges and crunches go into her workout routine, reminding us that’s it okay to stick to basics to get to your goal. It’s also a fun reminder that working out in groups brings plenty of inspiration for Snatched SZN.
