Jono – who has recently been doing live workouts for his followers – said it’s important to keep positive during the coronavirus pandemic and during self-isolation or lockdown.
‘Even when things get tough during isolation, maintaining a calm and positive mind will help you to focus on the solutions to any issues,’ Jono said.

Jono told Daily Mail Australia earlier this month meanwhile, that he believes high-intensity training (HIIT) is the best form of exercise for weightloss.
He also said at the time that keeping in shape with walks or something physical is also a good idea.
Jono’s top priority is helping his clients feel good about themselves.
The Men’s Health trainer suggests that clients take regular selfies to keep track of their weight loss. A Fitbit or Apple Watch is helpful for monitoring progress as well.
The Colombian-born former soccer player has trained the likes of celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton and Bachelor star Matty Johnson.
