Move over Arnold Schwarzenegger: President Obama traded his golf clubs for some light-weight dumbbells and took to the gym at his Warsaw, Poland, based five-star Marriott Hotel, as captured by photos taken on the sly from another man working out at the same facility.

The surreptitious photographer, Jean Ekwa, then posted the shots to his Facebook page, the New York Post reported.

In them, the president — decked in a dark blue track-style suit and white t-shirt — is shown pumping what appears to be light-weight, silver dumbbells. Mr. Obama spent about 30 minutes at the gym, the media outlet noted.

Mr. Ekwa snapped the pictures from his cell phone, absent security team awareness, the New York Post reported.


Mr. Obama touched down in Poland on Monday, the first stop of a scheduled tour through Europe.
