Television viewers got a new look at Condoleezza Rice, as the US Secretary of State showed off her daily workout routine on a channel.
Usually clad in stylish business clothing, Rice Wednesday appeared on a Washington TV station's show in exercise gear, performing stomach-toning exercises in the State Department's fitness studio.
Rice is known to wake up every morning at 4:30 a.m. for 45 minutes of workout on a treadmill or StairMaster. She once said that those moments exercising to classical music allow her to do some of her deepest thinking.
Rice's pursues her daily workout regimen even when she's abroad. She typically has a treadmill set up in her hotel room.
"When I am on the road, I absolutely schedule time to get in my exercise first," she said on the programme.
Asked by a reporter Wednesday whether Rice's performance signals more muscular diplomacy, State Department spokesman Adam Ereli quipped: "Muscular and agile."
