The Final Five are feeling right at home at the White House. On Thursday, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted four members of the spunky Team U.S.A. gymnastics team (Gabby Douglas could not attend as she had gotten her wisdom teeth removed) as well as other American Olympians and Paralympians in an honorary ceremony at their Washington, D.C., home.

The beloved foursome took over the White House's official Instagram page to document their adventures—and we don't know who was more nervous—President Obama or the athletes!

"It's a little nerve-wracking to meet the President of the United States, so we're getting into the zone the only way we know how," Gold medalists Aly Raisman, Laurie Hernandez, Simone Biles, and Madison Kocian captioned a hilarious photo of them getting out their nerves with a variety of intense stretches prior to the meeting.

The ladies— all clad in black leggings, neon yellow sneakers, and red jackets—then shared a shot of Hernandez using the White House's dining room as a spot to showcase her dancing talents. Watch it here:

But perhaps the best moment? When Raisman, Hernandez, Biles, and Kocia did the splits for the president and the First Lady—and POTUS attempted the move as well! The gymnasts shared a hilarious photo of the experience and noted in the caption, "President Obama gave his best shot to a split with us today, too."

"That's a wrap! We'd like to think we stuck this takeover," they added. "Thanks so much to the President, First Lady @MichelleObama and @VP for having us. #FinalFive out!"
