Al participated in a fitness segment with co-hosts Craig Melvin, Dylan Dreyer, and Jacob Soboroff. They spoke to SoulCycle Master Instructor Laurie Cole for “Start Today.” Once they go to the foam rolling exercises, Al felt too comfortable on the floor. He didn’t want to do the quad roll, which was a difficult exercise for him.

His co-anchors managed to pull themselves back up. However, Al Roker lay on the floor, seemingly content with himself. He assured them that he didn’t need any help. Al just didn’t want to get back up to do the next exercise. The weatherman joked that he was going to stay on the floor.
