Anyone who thinks the role of First Lady is purely ceremonial need look no further than the wide-reaching accomplishments of Michelle Obama. She decided to do something about the childhood obesity epidemic with her “Let’s Move” fitness campaign, and six years later, it’s unquestionably a huge success. Her program has been so effective in getting kids into shape that its thousands of participants are all now uncontrollably strong.
Nice work, Michelle. You go, girl!
“It’s amazing how the program has transformed them,” said Let’s Move instructor Kerry Owen. “When kids first began entering into the program back in 2010, they couldn’t climb a flight of stairs without getting winded. Now we can’t even contain them any more, no matter how hard we try. They’re so fast it’s impossible to catch them, and they’re able to toss grown men around like rag dolls.”
Wow. What an inspiration this is for all kids to make positive changes in their lives!
The program has been shown to reduce kids’ heart rates, lower their body fat, and allow them to rip handcuffs clean in half, even while wearing them. Thanks to Michelle’s efforts, kids who once spent all day on the couch playing video games could now easily bust through a well-fortified police barricade with ease.
Let’s Move is also getting kids to improve their diets by saying goodbye to hamburgers and soda and eating nothing but pound after pound of lean protein a day. You would never have guessed that an 11-year-old who is fit enough to jump up and pull a U.S. Marine Sea Cobra attack helicopter out of the sky today was a 5-year-old showing prediabetic symptoms just a few years ago.
No matter how you feel about her husband’s policies, there’s no question that Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign is making more and more kids by the day unstoppably strong to the point that if they ever decided to coordinate with each other they would truly become an amazing force to be reckoned with. Well done, Michelle, and congrats to these kids for getting into such uncontrollably great shape!
