By Mallory Hatten,

President Barack Obama may be busy gearing up for the November 6 election and all, but he makes time to work out daily with his first lady, Michelle Obama.

Us Weekly reports that Michelle sat down with Good Housekeeping for an interview, in which she discusses her relationship with the leader of the country and how they stay fit.

“I usually get to the gym a little before he does, because I start my day a bit earlier,” Michelle said. “[I have] hair, makeup, things that he doesn’t have to do. I continue to remind him of that.” The First Lady also revealed that she and Barack “work out together every day,” but added that he usually arrives “when I’m halfway through.” The couple spend “the morning checking in, watching SportsCenter [together].”

And when it comes to spending time with their daughters, Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14, the family of four will “catch a movie together” or “have a quiet dinner” on the weekends, according to Michelle.

All in all, the poised 48-year-old says the President of the United States helps her stay “focused when I’m feeling off-center,” adding, “A good chat with him on the balcony – it always puts me in the right place.”
