- Prime Minister Boris Johnson was pictured jogging with his personal trainer Harry Jameson
- Jameson is an elite performance coach and has trained celebrities including Dolph Lundgren
- Jameson shared the one piece of equipment you need to get a great home workout
If you’ve seen the snaps of BoJo jogging around Westminster this morning, then you’ll have probably spied his trainer, Harry Jameson, too. Jameson was seen giving Johnson instructions as they ran through the park.
Johnson has been exceptionally vocal recently about the pressing need to tackle obesity in the United Kingdom with the latest NHS 12 week weight loss plan, as well as lose some weight himself. No. 10 released a video in July showing Johnson outlining his motivation to get fitter and get the nation fitter too.
However, as interesting as Boris’ morning exercise is, we’re more interested in his trainer Jameson. Previously speaking with Women’s Health UK, Jameson shared the one piece of equipment he would recommend investing in for home workouts. Unsurprisingly, it’s not a squat rack.
‘If I was going to purchase a single piece of equipment to train with at home, it would be a kettlebell,’ says Jameson. ‘It’s a fantastic full-body training tool that allows you to constantly change up your routine without getting bored.’
We’d have to agree. While dumbbells, barbells and weight plates are handy, the sheer variety of movement you can do with a kettlebell is astounding: squats, deadlifts, pushes, pulls, lower body work, upper body work, core work – we’re going to stop and catch our breath now, but trust us, there’s hundreds of exercises you can do.
Thanks for the tip, Harry.
