Fitness Flashback – Melanie Webb on Good Morning America

Here’s one from the fitness archives: the day Good Morning America asked me to comment on President George W. Bush and his fitness program. I was a Personal Trainer at The Sports Club/LA in Washington, D.C. during President Bush’s second term. It was a well known fact that the President was an avid exerciser, but little did we all know just how fit he was. A news article in the Washington Post revealed that “he was really fit for an old guy” (Did I really just call President Bush an old guy? You’re just going to have to watch).

My job that morning was to take GMA reporter Jake Tapper through the paces with President Bush’s workout, including bench presses and stair climbers. Find out how he measured up in this blast from my fitness trainer past.
