US President Barack Obama stars in own workout video

FROM the Oval Office, down the corridor past Bo, outside through the covered walkway and... back to work.

No, you're not dreaming. Barack Obama and Joe Biden really have been jogging around the White House.

The President and his deputy were filmed 'working out' to the Superstars TV show theme tune in between meetings and signing documents to raise more awareness of Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign to get children keeping fit.

According to the video, the pair were persuaded to get their sweat on "in response to the overwhelming number of people around the country who showed us how they move using the hashtag #LetsMove".

First Lady Michelle Obama set up the Let's Move campaign four years ago to tackle the problem of obesity among American children and to help them lead a healthy life.
