WARSAW, Poland (NBC) — Cell phone video and photos showing President Obama working out at a hotel gym have gone viral — and they’re raising questions about his whether his safety is at risk.

Some reports have raised concerns about whether the video and pictures constitute a security breach.

The Secret Service said all hotel guests were screened before entering the hotel, and Secret Service agents were in the gym with the president.

A Secret Service spokesman said: “This is no different than if the president visited a restaurant off the record and other diners took pictures of him.”

Obama isn’t the only recent president who enjoys breaking a sweat.

President Clinton used to go jogging in public.

President George W. Bush rode mountain bikes, and his father used to play golf at public golf courses.
