New York, April 21 (ANI): US President Barack Obama's press secretary, Robert Gibbs, has revealed that the work pressure during the leader's election campaign took its toll on his health.

But the 39-year-old has also admitted that he is now relaxed into his job and is finding enough time during the workday to go kayaking and bike riding, and then tweeting about it to his 55,600-odd followers.

"The truth is, having travelled with [Obama] on the campaign, you're working so much and by the end of the day, you're just so exhausted, I let my health go. I gained weight," the New York Post quoted Gibbs, 39, as telling Daily Beast.

On Thursday, he tweeted: "Just spent 45 mins kayaking Potomac -- beautiful on the water -- 1st day open for Jack's Boathouse (Water St under Key Bridge-check it out)."

On Saturday, he said: "Just finished 15 miles on the new bike -- more hills and lots of wind today but still a pretty day."(ANI)
