WASHINGTON–First Lady Michelle Obama revealed that her exercise routine includes “a little boxing.”

She commented on her workout to NBC’s Al Roker on Tuesday, when Mrs. Obama hosted a jumping jacks contest on the White House South Lawn as part of her “Let’s Move” anti-obesity campaign.

“Are jumping jacks your exercise of choice?

“You know, I do everything — I mean, jumping jacks, squats, lunges, you know, jump lunges, you name it. I have a trainer who’s a little crazy, so …we do a little bit of everything; a little boxing. So we mix it up, because, as you know, if you get bored with it, you don’t stick to it. So we mix it up.”
