Michelle Obama and Jimmy Fallon

As we all know, Michelle Obama is willing to go the extra mile to get kids off the couch with her Let’s Move! campaign. The first lady has hula hooped many times in hopes of inspiring others to do so. When she said she was willing to “make a fool” of herself to get young people in motion, Jimmy Fallon of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Saturday Night Live fame took her up on that offer. The late-night TV host host went to the White House to challenge the First Lady herself in a handful of events to determine who was in better shape and when it came down to hula hooping, nobody was more surprised than us to watch Jimmy take Michelle down. Nevertheless, the dynamic duo participated in a series of others events including push-ups, dodge ball, tug-of-war, resulting in a tie going into the all important potato sack race. While Jimmy scored at hooping, who ultimately won the fitness challenge? Win or lose Jimmy said he had a phenomenal time facing off with the first lady. “Michelle Obama is the coolest,” he said.
