First Lady Michelle Obama brought her “Let’s Move Campaign” to chilly Harlem Thursday where she broke more than a sweat with area children. Newsone was on hand to see the First Lady crank out a series of pushups and do some jumping jacks and squats. Later, she got the squealing kids skipping and running – and burning off plenty of calories – in a 20-minute session.
“Too many children don’t have the resources where they can work out at a center like this, or learn about eating healthier and that’s my mission,” said The First Lady. “For example, if you guys and girls want to become a Police Officer one day like a lot of your trainers, you’ll have to exercise and eat healthy. You’ll have to turn off the video games and run up the stairs. You’ll also have to talk to your parents about what’s good for you and what isn’t.”
