The first lady will grace the cover of Prevention‘s upcoming November issue, on newsstands next week.
The issue features an exclusive interview with Michelle Obama, conducted by the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Liz Vaccariello. Keeping in line with the focus on the magazine, the interview is talks about health, exercise and well-being, with Obama revealing her number one health rule: give yourself permission to be happy. She also discusses her workout routine (she’s added in more stretching to help keep her flexible), her favorite and least favorite exercises, her skin care regimen and what it’s been like living with her mom.
She also gushes about her husband, the president:
“One of the things that attracted me to Barack was his emotional honesty. Right off the bat he said what he felt. There are no games with him — he is who he appears to be. I feel fortunate as a woman to have a husband who loves me and shows me in every way.”
And in addition to snagging a hugely coveted cover model, Prevention is also boasting an increase in pages in its November issue. The issue closed at 95 pages, a 1.4 percent increase from last year, publisher Mary Murcko said. This growth is certain to increase after the magazine beefed up its sales team last month.
