Michelle Obama hosts weekend bootcamp for ‘close girlfriends’
“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,” she explained on Instagram. “And even though I’m no longer at the White House, I’ve continued this tradition and wanted to share some photos.”
She posted several pictures from the bootcamp, which featured women of various ages and fitness levels, both old friends and new who all came together for one purpose: to work out with the former First Lady.
“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,” Obama said on Instagram. “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.”
