Former fitness model balances busy touring schedule with maintaining health & fitness levels
Cybex has installed a range of cardio and strength training equipment at the home of Jonas Blue, the world-renowned DJ, record producer and songwriter.
Jonas, whose real name is Guy James Robin, chose Cybex’s 770 series Treadmill and Upright Bike, Smith Machine, Adjustable Bench and Dumbbells for his new home gym in London.
Before becoming a professional DJ, Jonas’ background was in fitness: “health and fitness has always been massively important to me and before I was known as Jonas Blue, I was training as a fitness model. I have a strong passion for training and nutrition, often working out twice a day and preparing for stage.”
Now a renowned name in the music industry, Jonas was streamed over 1 billion times in 2016 and sold more singles globally than any other British debut artist. The MTV EMA and BRIT Award nominee now has to find the balance between maintaining his health and fitness levels and managing his busy touring schedule: “It can be really tough at times, especially with all the travel that’s involved with the job.
“That’s why I’ve had the gym built at my home in London, so that I can start getting back into the regular training that I used to do. I’m realistic as to what I can find time for nowadays, but I would love to get back into that headspace and train properly again!”
Jonas first experienced Cybex equipment during his time as a fitness model: “Cybex is very well-known in the industry as a premium and trusted brand; it’s reliable and extremely well-made and I really notice the difference in the movement patterns compared to other equipment I’ve trained on. I also love that you are able to customise your equipment frames and upholstery which was a big selling point for my home gym.”
Jonas Blue will soon be launching a new monthly vlog which will provide access to behind-the-scenes footage and training at his home gym. The vlog will be available at www.jonasblue.com.
