Michelle skips lessons

America’s First Lady showed off her toned arms during a skipping session with students at a Washington school.

The fitness lesson marked the relaunch of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, which is being headed up by Michelle Obama.

As well as skipping, Mrs Obama took part in a yoga session, juggled scarves and helped put together healthy snacks for students.

The council, which was formerly known as the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, now has an added emphasis on healthy eating habits.

Mrs Obama said ‘One in three Americans is overweight or obese and we’re spending billions of dollars on treating obesity-related conditions.’ ‘We can’t afford to keep going down this road.’ she added.
