Throughout the fifth anniversary of Let’s Move!, the First Lady has been encouraging everyone across the country to #GimmeFive ways they are eating better, being more active, and leading a healthier life. This week, many of the First Lady’s followers have been challenging her back, and just a few days ago, the President responded to her challenge and challenged her to #GimmeFive "FLOTUS-style."
The President joined in the fun by accepting the challenge and then asking the First Lady to #GimmeFive "FLOTUS-style." The First Lady accepted the President's challenge, sharing an inside look at her workout routine, and took challenges from folks across the country too!
