Hopefully this is something everyone can get a laugh out of. For those of you that haven’t yet seen the video, President Obama stayed at the Marriott Warsaw recently, and ended up going to the gym.
Since the Secret Service had “cleared” everyone staying at the hotel, they didn’t shut down the gym when he used it. So someone somehow videotaped the workout, and this emerged:
It’s damn impressive that someone managed to do that without the President or Secret Service noticing.
Over the years I’ve certainly seen some celebrities at hotel gyms, though no one presidential.
Speaking of “hotels” and “awkward,” the Park Hyatt Tokyo has a spectacular spa, which Gold Passport Diamond members can access for free. The thing is that spa isn’t “clothing optional,” but rather nudity is required. I realize I leave the German side of me at home when it comes to this, but when I stayed there I (politely) said “oh, that’s okay, thanks,” as I was perfectly content in my swimming trunks. I figured it was merely a suggestion and not a requirement. “No, please, you take it off.” Oh…
It’s always awkward to run into someone you know as soon as you enter the spa…
Anyway, politics aside, hopefully everyone can get a chuckle out of the above video.
