Skip to comments.President Obama Making Sure His Employees Work Out

Michael Strautmanis had no sooner started his White House job as a deputy assistant to the president when his boss began badgering him.
"Am I working out? Am I eating right?'' Strautmanis recalled President Obama asking. "And then he told me that I should use his trainer.''
The very fit president has sent other White House aides to Cornell McClellan, the trainer, a genial master tormenter who is the secret weapon behind Michelle Obama's famously toned arms and who has overseen both Obamas' exercise programs for more than a decade.
Strautmanis made one and only one appointment with McClellan, just to satisfy the president. But Obama had other plans. As Strautmanis walked away from a White House news conference one morning, the president caught up with him and called out, "Strautmanis, Cornell says you're not showing up for your workouts.''
"And that's when I knew this was going to be a different experience for me,'' said Strautmanis, who has forsaken cheeseburgers, taken up egg whites and lost 20 pounds since he started twice-weekly sessions with McClellan in a gym at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.....

I bet that stupid SOB runs the tennis court schedule too.
I believe the Nazis also “encouraged” people to exercise and have certain diets....
Of course the POSUS is fit..all he does is shoot hoops, play golf and ice cream.
Would that be the trainer I read about earlier who flies in weekly? On our dime?
He should make sure his staff doesn’t miss drug re-hab and AA therapy too.
As Rome burns ...
I did a quick google search of “personal trainer Washington DC”. Got tons of results. Personal trainers advertising their work.
But I guess non of them are good enough. His has to be flown in at tax payer expense.
Maybe this one gives reach around
Ooof. I have the same sympathy for Obama that I had for Clinton. Clinton had Hilary. Obama has “The Wookie”.
I never suspected that Bill was a pederast.
If any of my bosses would ever ask me about what I do outside of work hours they would be told, politely but convincingly, to mind their own business. I sold my time and labor to them, not my entire life.
So if Mr. Strautmanis decided to obey his Master it only tells us two simple things:
If Mr. Strautmanis is such a weakling that he can't manage a simple situation, what does it tell us about his abilities that he, as a senior manager, must have in order to manage the country? This is a rhetorical question, of course, since we know who hired him.
“Michelle Obama’s famously toned arms”
What a crock of crap . . . the woman is obese as hell with a wide lard butt and thick cankles . . . where in the hell do they get off saying that she’s anywhere near in shape?
And the skinny illegal alien from Kenyan can’t even throw a baseball to homeplate without at least one or two bounces.
Incredible! Can I believe my lying eyes??????
You got a problem with this, fascist?
I would think that there may be some caveats to the exercise routine. My you the pResisdent is a No Talent Pop Star (NTPS). Everything is for show. If anyone in the Administration is truly fit - competitive runner, triathlete, etc - that would be seen as a challenge to the NTPS. As in not good office politics. I have seen this in the corporate world as well, but that would be in places where the executive/upper management is made up of image concious empty suits, who also happen to be limousine liberals.
Concur with your post. Hipzilla needs to become friends with a treadmill.
He must only work upper body with the Mrs.
Trainer needs to work on the Wookie’s out of tone big ass butt!
