How does Jon Bon Jovi keep his waist a trim 30 inches and find inner harmony? For him, the secret is yoga. After years of standard gym workouts, he found yoga to be a refreshing change of pace. “I was doing Workout 101 for years: treadmill, elliptical, weights,” the rocker told Men’s Health. “Now I’m going to do yoga. I went for my first time, and I enjoyed it. I’m a 21st-century man.” It takes a lot of ansanas to stay in such great shape
Using yoga for fitness seems in line with his favorite book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin Sharma. Let’s just say it was one of the most influential books for me, because it talked about how more and bigger is not always better. I came to that realization a decade and a half ago. I bought lots of copies for friends who were in similar situations, some of the guys in the band, other people in our line of work.”
He also recently denied speculations that he went under the knife. “For an old man who has no plastic surgery, still has all his own hair and wears a 30-inch waist, I’m doing OK,” he told Contact Music.
