Beyonce Posts Workout Video to Celebrate Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Fitness Campaign
Beyonce is helping First Lady Michelle Obama celebrate the fifth anniversary of her Let’s Move fitness campaign by filming a short exercise video to encourage fans to stay in shape.
President Barack Obama’s wife first recruited the hitmaker to front the drive in 2010, hoping her involvement would serve to drive kids to get active and fight childhood obesity, and now Beyonce has stepped up to mark five years since the initiative’s launch with the #GimmeFive movement, calling on devotees to perform five physical tasks or share five ways to be healthy and then challenge others to do it, too.
She filmed herself performing a series of workouts, including leg lifts, lunges and punching with weights, and uploaded the time-lapse clip to her social networking pages on Wednesday.
She captioned it, “Celebrating 5 years of the Let’s Move Initiative. #GimmeFive Michelle Obama”.
