A video showing President Barack Obama’s exercise routine may have been released—despite a press restriction.

Two separate Instagram accounts posted a photo and video, apparently showing the president. He was spotted at a gym at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, the Daily Caller reported, which said there was a “restriction” on the press.

A video taken by Instagram user rother_vandross17 appears to show Obama walking around. “Get it in with the #POTUS #BARACKOBAMA #MYPRESIDENT,” the user wrote.

A photo, that has since been taken down, shows Obama and a smiling man. It shows the president in workout clothes, but it’s unclear exactly where it was taken.

Several years ago, Obama’s workout routine was leaked online, showing the president using weights and using a stepper.

Starting last Friday, Obama and his family have been in Hawaii for their Christmas vacation. The Associated Press and other media outlets reported that he played golf several times.

AP reported on Wednesday:

After the usual morning at the gym on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, the presidential motorcade headed west to the Kapolei Golf Club, arriving at about 11 a.m. for an afternoon round. Obama wrapped up on the final hole with his golf buddies Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Darrell Harrington at about 3:57 p.m — tipping his baseball cap upon successfully sinking the ball, according to press reports.
