When you’re at the gym working out, do you want people to take pictures and video of you? Probably not. But that’s exactly what happened to President Barack Obama.
Some awkward pictures, and an even more awkward video, of President Obama lifting weights at a hotel gym in Poland were leaked online on Wednesday. And they definitely got the Internet talking.
The Commander-in-Chief was at a 5-star Marriott hotel gym in Warsaw, Poland. He was in Poland for a face-to-face meeting with Ukraine President-elect Petro Poroshenko and other diplomatic events.
The photos, which were posted on Facebook by Jean Ekwa, show President Obama dressed in a dark tracksuit, lifting weights.
The video shows him wearing headphones and doing lunges and upper-body exercises.
Originally, some people thought that if someone could get close enough to the President to shoot pictures and videos like this, then it could have been a security danger. But the Secret Service was quick to shut down that thought. They say that even though hotel guests were allowed to stay in the gym while Obama worked out, there was never any risk for the President.
