Coronavirus Isn't Stopping RBG From Working Out

By Jimmy Hoover

Law360 (March 31, 2020, 6:42 PM EDT) -- Gyms are closed around the country due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the personal trainer for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg told Law360 that the justice "ain't having it," and is still working out with him twice a week at the U.S. Supreme Court's private facility.

Justice Ginsburg, who turned 87 on March 15, is sticking to her twice-weekly routine of planks, pushups and other exercises with longtime personal trainer Bryant Johnson in the justices' private gym inside the Supreme Court building, Johnson said in a phone call Tuesday.

The two are taking extra precautions to wipe down equipment and keep their distance. Johnson, a federal judiciary employee, has canceled appointments with his other clients and now is only working with Justice Ginsburg.

"Everybody's been shut down. The only reason why I didn't shut the justice down is because, hey, she ain't having it," said Johnson, who spent over 30 years in the U.S. Army and now works in D.C.'s federal district court. "She has that grandfather status to me and if she wants to train, that‘s the least that I can do."
