Core, blimey! Wellington Mayor Justin Lester's bizarre office workout

  • 05/04/2017

Wellington Mayor and well-known fitness fanatic Justin Lester has proven that workouts can be done just about anywhere if you're really keen for your next fitness fix.

Mr Lester is known to run about 10.5km from his home in Johnsonville to work in the Wellington CBD and, clearly not content with his fix of cardio, he's taken to carrying out a core workout using an office table.

In a video posted on his public Facebook page, Mr Lester can be seen doing an unconventional ab workout that sees him using his hands to grip the corner of a table, holding his body up and extending his legs - all while in a suit.

The footage has drawn comparisons between Mr Lester and a fellow fitness guru called Justin in public office - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The latter is a former bungy jumping instructor, and is known to practice yoga, compete in charity boxing matches and go to the gym on a regular basis.
