WARSAW — It all started on Tuesday when a website here published photos of a man who looks like President Obama working out in a gym. The photos posted by the website Plotek.Pl came from a Facebook user identified as Jean Ekwa.

And today the celebrity gossip website TMZ upped the ante — posting a video of the president pumping iron. WATCH IT HERE.

The U.S. Secret Service confirmed the authenticity of the video, adding a few details in a statement to ABC News:

  • The referenced images and video of the president exercising were taken during an “off the record,” or unscheduled, movement at the Marriott Hotel Warsaw gym.
  • Hotel guests were not asked to leave the gym during this off the record movement, nor were they asked to refrain from taking pictures.
  • All guests entering the hotel are screened prior to entry.
  • Secret Service agents were in proximity to the president while he was in the gym.
  • This is no different than if the president visited a restaurant off the record and other diners took pictures of him.

President Obama arrived in Poland Tuesday morning for the start of a four-day, three country tour through Europe. He flew on to Brussels on Wednesday.
