Earlier this week The Washington Post profiled Bryant Johnson, a records manager by day and personal trainer to two very powerful women in the evenings. The Virginia native trains Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her colleague Justice Elena Kagan in the Supreme Court's ground-floor gym.

Johnson grew up on his grandparents' farm on the Northern Neck of Virginia. He was raised largely by his mother, a deaf grandmother and many aunts. Growing up closely with the strong women in his life is perhaps what helps him feel comfortable pushing the justices to do just one more push up.
