Michelle Obama is making the rounds on the talk show circuit this week, a tour that wouldn't be replete without a reprise of her now-famous Dougie dance.
During a recent visit to "The Dr. Oz Show," set to air on September 12, the First Lady dishes on what she does with her own kids for exercise, a regimen that she says includes cranking up the radio and hitting her Dougie.
The show’s host, Mehmet Oz, says he’s “honored” that she has chosen to be a guest on his show, according to the Associated Press, an honor that came along with a lesson in how to do the dance.
In July, FLOTUS declined requests to Dougie during a visit to an Ohio community center, claiming she didn't know how, but it looks like she's been brushing up!
On Wednesday's episode, Mrs. O also shares how she really feels about the President’s diet on the Campaign Trail; plays lunch lady to three kid taste-testers, unveiling the new improvements to the federal guidelines for school lunches taking effect this school year; and exclusively discusses two new issues to her Let’s Move! campaign.

She Celebrated 14 Years With Her Trainer
Long before she was in the public eye, Michelle Obama understood the importance of regular exercise. While still in Chicago, she enlisted the help of trainer and fitness center owner Cornell McClellan. A few years later, McClellan started working with the future president, as well. He even moved to D.C. to continue assisting the First Family and contribute to the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. So what kinds of routines does McClellan favor for Mrs. O? "We do a lot of strength, interval stuff, yoga, boxing, all kinds of stuff," <a href="http://www.self.com/health/blogs/healthyself/2011/11/michelle-obamas-personal-train.html" target="_hplink">he told <em>Self</em> recently</a>. "They're the best clients -- they're always motivated."
She Did Push-Ups With A Nobel Laureate
The FLOTUS showed off her perfect form to former Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu at a youth event promoting HIV/AIDS awareness in Cape Town in February. Hope Sasha and Malia and cousins Avery and Leslie Robinson, all of whom came along, were taking notes.

Along with more than 300,000 participants, Michelle Obama managed to break the Guinness World Record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.

She Shot A Dance Segment On The Tween Hit, iCarly
Bringing dance fitness to the tween set, Mrs. Obama shot a segment on the Disney hit show, which will air in January. As The Huffington Post's Julee Wilson reported back in November: <blockquote>There's some extra pep in the First Lady's step since her appearance on the show is to promote Joining Forces, an initiative aimed at increasing awareness and support for military families.</blockquote> She's setting a good fitness and service tone for 2012.
She Proved She's Handy With A Raquet At The U.S. Open
At this year's U.S. Open, the First Lady took to the court, ably hitting some tennis balls. But this time, her lesson wasn't only about physical fitness. Instead, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/09/michelle-obama-us-open_n_955879.html?ref=michelle-obama" target="_hplink">according to HuffPost's Ellie Krupnick</a>, Michelle Obama told a group of children participating in the Let's Move event that she loved sports for the shear joy of them: "That's the beauty of tennis," she said. "You don't have to be good to enjoy it, because I love the game and my skills are very questionable."
Hula Hooping Is Her 'Talent'
The FLOTUS enthusiasm for hula hooping is well documented. But it is also reportedly her go-to strategy for wowing friends at talent shows -- <a href="http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1900228-3,00.html" target="_hplink">at Spring Break celebrations at Camp David</a> and, according to one unconfirmed source, <a href="http://www.hooping.org/2011/01/michelle-obama-hula-hoops-for-new-years-eve/" target="_hplink">to ring in 2011 in Oahu</a>.
