SOURCE – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is continuing her workouts at the Supreme Court gym amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to her longtime personal trainer.
Bryant Johnson, Ginsburg’s trainer, told the news outlet Law360 on Tuesday that Ginsburg, 87 and a four-time cancer survivor, does not want to stop her sessions.
“Everybody’s been shut down. The only reason why I didn’t shut the justice down is because, hey, she ain’t having it,” Johnson said.
Washington, DC has implemented a stay-at-home order and closed all public gyms due to the pandemic.
Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said Ginsburg has her own exercise spot.
“At Justice Ginsburg’s request, the Court has set aside the limited private space next to its health facility for Justice Ginsburg to exercise. Her doctors share her view that the training sessions are essential to her well-being,” Arberg told CNN.
“The space is being used exclusively by the justice,” Arberg added. “No other justices are using the space, and the employee gym is closed to all users.”
How about RBG, the G is for Gains, just struttin’ her ass around the gym? Basically kicked out every constituent, the President, Congressperson so she could have her own private workout room. RBG is the dude at the gym who has a monopoly on the squat rack and the bench for two hours at the same time. Once you start to walk towards the squat rack because no one’s touched it in 20 minutes, he comes running over and says he’s using it. Ask him to work in and he tells you his workout doesn’t allow breaks even though he was talking to another meat head before that for 15 minutes in between sets.
It doesn’t matter if RBG looks like the Crypt Keeper and is 87 going on 187. She can’t be stopped from dominating a couple of pink 2.5 lb dumbbells. You think her neck hangs down constantly because of old age and osteoporosis? Nope. Her big brain. Look at this old bitch pushing the Earth away.
I feel like the entire workout should be titled, “How Not To Kill RBG”. I was waiting for her trainer to hand the ball back to her and RBG to go flying backwards over the bench.
Listen this woman’s done more than I have in the last three weeks of quarantine. I found one of those virtual workouts by an Instagram fitness trainer and did it yesterday. I had to quit 20 minutes into a 30 minute workout.
Look at me looking like a Discount Dan Orlovsky because I refuse to shave, giving the thumbs up because I actually got off the couch and did something physical for a change. Pitiful. Disregard the Bombas socks/electric shoe combo. Can’t be judged on your style while there’s a pandemic going on. Those are the rules.
