Revealed! Easy ways to get Jian Ghomeshi’s abs
Everyone knows that if you want to work in radio, you have to have a really great body. For all of you would-be hosts puzzling over how to get the sculpted physique that matches the dulcimer tones of the CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi, puzzle no longer. The 43-year-old host of the daily arts show Q on CBC Radio was kind enough to let the Globe and Mail join him at one of his personal training sessions at Toronto’s Good Life Fitness. The four-photo spread features Ghomeshi medicine-balling his way to a more energetic on-air personality. Accompanying the photos is an article detailing the former Moxy Fruvous rocker’s health habits.
Why, you ask, would either the Globe or Ghomeshi agree to such a bizarre story idea? We’re not sure, but we’re also not complaining. There’s something wonderfully awkward about this whole piece that makes it almost endearing. But still weird. Also of note is Ghomeshi’s super-intense personal trainer John Barlis, who has somehow managed to work his way into the blurry background of every shot.
The question now is, what’s next? Yoga in the park with Shelagh Rogers? Jazzercise with Rich Terfry? We’ve got our fingers crossed for a stay-at-home workout with Stuart McLean: “Dave didn’t want to go to the gym…”

43? Judging by these pics, dude’s got the body of a 25-year-old!!!
It makes sense to me. Personal trainers, I believe, are often overlooked. Not only do they provide proper technique and a regimented,disciplined fitness program, they make that 45-60 min session a social time.
My trainer Kim, was/is a female hockey player who worked with me to focus specifically on core and coordination. Since meeting her I have taken more interest in women’s hockey.

I really liked the article in the G&M, I thought it was interesting that Jian had such good results. I kind of love that a music nerd would also embrace dumbells and cardio. The longer he stays healthy the longer we get to enjoy Q!
The G&M story isn’t so bizarre. Isn’t it in keeping with Jian’s narcissism? Won’t there be follow up articles on his hairstyles, his parents, his favourite shoes, his girlfriends, his favourite places to eat in London/LA/New York, his match collection, his favourite t-shirts, etc? Doesn’t he yearn to live his entire life in the public eye?
Jian makes Ben Mulroney look like a shy wallflower.
Jian is LAME and terribly BORING. Why are these articles even written about him? Who really is going to concern themselves with Jian Ghomeshi’s workout? I believe he seeks this stuff out in order to stay in the spotlight, poor man.
You come accross as a gilted ex. with the comment; “Jian is LAME and terribly BORING”?
I am a fan of Jian & Q as much for the remarkable guests he is pulling in (to a “talk radio” station, MORNING show)! Yes, he does have a distinctively pleasing, easy to listen to voice… the cherry on top, so to speak. However, make no mistake, he’s handled a real diversity of, in some cases more than just a little “difficult” (hehem; Billy Bob Thorton) guests/famous or “up & coming” personalities adeptly as well as with distinct an appropriatde splash of aplomb.
Nobodies perfect, that goes without saying, but Gian has a wonderful interview style which comes through in how at ease his guest tend to be, not to mention the genuine comments about their having enjoyed the interview & giving assurances to “be sure to stop by again” when next in Toronto (if it isn’t already their 2nd, or more, visit to “Q”).
Keep up the good work Gian & the Q staff… everyone at CBC radio One, for that matter. (I DO get a bit annoyed at how blatantly obvious it is that CBC is FAR RIGHT Wing Liberal/anti-PC!)
“dulcimer tones”? either you mean “dulcet tones,” or jian’s voice has undertaken a strange transformation.
Oh thank god THANK GOD. I thought it was just me. GEEANNE is the most “HI THERE” self congratulating NON RISK taking , SMARMY , dreadful interviewing, numchuckingly BLAND, stultifyingly SAFE – (I could go on forever).
When that “hour of nada” comes on on MY AMERICAN PUBLIC RADIO, i would rather have my balls poached in aspic than listen to this git. He is just another Gyweny Paltrow only on steroids.
Terry Gross is past it her ability to pull the youth demographic but is Teri boring – RARELY. but really, (!) REALLY (!!!) NPR, we have hosts out there in the good ol USA that could light it all up given half a chance.
