How the rich and powerful keep fit
Blog Guy, as someone who hangs out with the power elite, can you tell me how they manage to stay in shape? I mean, they must get free food anytime they want, so how do they cope with all that?
Really? It’s that simple? I’m not doubting you, but it’s kind of hard to believe. So who does Michelle Obama use, just for instance?
She uses Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Here she is, following his tough calisthenics regimen while practicing her goofy faces at the same time. It’s called “multi-tasking.”
Hmm. What about Britain’s Queen Elizabeth? She looked very spry and fit at the recent royal wedding. If you’re the Queen of England, who do you get for a personal trainer?
You get the British Prime Minister. The Queen enjoys daily Stairmaster-style workouts, using Number 10 Downing Street as her Stairmaster.
Here she goes, up and down, up and down, up and down, as the prime minister shouts stuff like, “You have the power! Unleash it!”
Gosh. I guess that helps her legs, but what about upper body development?
Not to worry. She has 50-pound weights in her pocketbook.
You know, Blog Guy, it’s funny. I used to think you just made this stuff up…
