KAILUA (HawaiiNewsNow) - About eight hours after landing in Hawaii, President Barack Obama started his first full vacation day in a very familiar way -- by going for a morning workout at Kaneohe Marine Corps Base Hawaii.

According to the pool report, Obama's motorcade rolled out from his "winter White House" in Kailua at 8:16 a.m., and arrived at the base seven minutes later. Pool reporters were held at the base McDonald's and were unable to see who else joined the president for the workout. Other sources said First Lady Michelle Obama did not accompany the president.

Obama returned to the vacation home at around 9:33 a.m., with a few onlookers people reported along the route.

President Obama has started the day on prior Hawaii vacations with a workout at the base.

Earlier, reporters were held outside a "series of barricades running slalom along the road leading to his home," the pool report said. "Also spotted security patrolling an inlet that runs parallel to Kailuana Place and empties into Kailua Bay."

The Obamas are scheduled to stay in Hawaii through New Year's.
