The supreme court justices personal trainer details her regimen in a new book: If you think she’s tough on the bench, you should see her at the gym
In the days after the 8 November election, distressed liberals offered to donate their vital organs, shipments of fresh produce anything that might keep the supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg healthy and out of retirement.
While Democrats fretted online about the bone density and blood pressure of the oldest and arguably best-known member of the supreme court, the justice, now 84, quietly continued her twice weekly workouts with her personal trainer, Bryant Johnson.
I always tell people, If you think she’s tough on the bench, you should see her at the gym, said Johnson, whose new book The RBG Workout: How She Stays Strong and You Can Too!, was released this month. She’s tough as nails.
Earlier this year, a Politico reporter asked Johnson if he could try Ginsburgs routine. The decision, as always, was up to the justice. When Johnson asked her, she paused to consider the request, before saying only: I hope he makes it through the workout.
Johnson says Ginsburg, a two-time cancer survivor whose small frame often appears swallowed in a sweeping black robe, is stronger today than when they began training together more than 18 years ago.
In an interview at Johnson’s office inside the DC federal courthouse, where he works by day as a records specialist, Johnson said he was motivated to write the book to set the record straight about what the workout entails.
