Obama's fitness schedule

According to Washington Post, the busier President elect Obama gets, the longer he likes to exercise! Hmmm. Can Obama handle the pressure in the White House?

I remember in the 80's they used to make fun of Reagan because he would take 30 minutes naps in the afternoon, but now we marvel at how Obama stays fit by exercising 90 minutes a day! Here are a few excerpts from the article:
But one habit endures: Obama has gone to the gym, for about 90 minutes a day, for at least 48 days in a row. He always has treated exercise less as recreation than requirement, but his devotion has intensified during the past few months.

The more Obama's life intensifies, friends said, the more he relies on the gym -- which is why he might be taking office in the best shape of his life. The gym is where he releases stress, maintains a routine and thinks without interruption. He sometimes wears headphones and barricades the outside world.
But according to this report, Obama still is a smoker but don't call him that.  
Obama still suffers from one vice -- smoking -- although he has worked hard to quit since he started the presidential campaign. He's down from three or four cigarettes each day to what he terms the occasional "slip."
