New Book, “Michelle Obama: A Life,” Details The Life & Times Of The First Lady

On Monday, journalist and author Peter Slevin joined Roland Martin on the set of NewsOne Now to talk about his new book, Michelle Obama: A Life.

Slevin’s book gives the public a glimpse into Mrs. Obama’s past and how it has shaped the First Lady she’s become.

“When authors pen a book that looks into the life of a public figure, they usually find a few surprising things about that person,” Slevin told Martin. But that wasn’t actually the case with Mrs. Obama, Slevin added. 

“She talks about herself, she reveals a lot about herself, but going deep it was fascinating to find out about her history, how she came up on the Southside of Chicago, what she learned along the way and how that has connected directly into what she has going now in the White House.”

Martin explained that throughout his journalist travels he has met many “political wives” and politicians and Mrs. Obama is “probably the most real, down to earth person who gets it.”

Fit!Live!Win!: Hula Hoop Fitness

Fitness instructor Noelle Powers joined Roland Martin on NewsOne Now to discuss how hula hooping can help you get and stay fit.

Powers combines hula hooping and dancing for a fun, full-body workout. She told Martin that the hula hoop has “come full-circle.” Pun fully intended. 

According to Powers, people of all ages and lifestyles can benefit from hula hoop fitness.

Powers recommended that individuals should hula hoop for five to ten minutes a day to begin receiving benefits from the workout. The longer you work out, the better you will feel and the sooner you will start seeing improvements, she said, adding that with hula hooping you should “start to see your muscles build and circulation improve.”
