Obama the Gym Buff

From CBS News' Maria Gavrilovic:

(CHICAGO) Since becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee, Barack Obama has spent his Sunday afternoons with his family in Chicago. Details of his days and nights off the campaign trail have been murky, until now. After lengthy negotiations with the press, the campaign has established a protective pool to travel with the candidate and this was the inaugural weekend.

So, what have we discovered about Barack Obama? For one, despite his grueling schedule on the campaign trail, he is still a gym buff. As soon as he returned home yesterday afternoon, he quickly changed into his gym clothes and headed to a local gym where he worked out for over an hour. This morning, he headed back to the gym and later took his family to Chicago's East Bank Club to play basketball.

Despite his devotion to the gym, Obama managed to have some fun last night. He and Michelle had a swanky date night at the Chicago's premiere restaurant, Spiaggia. Michelle, dressed in a chic, black dress and Barack entered the restaurant alone and dined for almost 2 and a half hours.
