The magistrate was known in Washington for her strict exercise routines in the Court’s gym

Hundreds of people have said their last goodbye to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the first woman to receive a state wake in the US Congress. The late Supreme Court justice has been honored by politicians from across the parliamentary arch, from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to President Donald Trump, who was booed when he attended the wake to pay his respects. But the most talked-about moment of the ceremony on Capitol Hill was when the magistrate’s personal trainer, Bryant Johnson, appeared at the coffin, knelt and did three push-ups before it before saying goodbye for the last time.

This gesture is loaded with symbolism, since he had been repeating it for years twice a week in the Court gym with the octogenarian Ginsburg, who was known in Washington for maintaining a strict exercise routine despite her advanced age. The judge maintained this habit even when she was diagnosed with cancer and also during the coronavirus pandemic. Bryant Johnson had been her personal trainer since 1999, a time that has allowed him to write a book on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s routine in 2017, titled “The RGB Routine: How She Stays Strong … And You Can Too.”
