We're still working out whether this is a gag or not. Who knew Bon Iver frontman, Justin Vernon, was such a fitness buff? But here we have video proof (or at very least a funny hoax). In the following clip, we meet Vernon's personal trainer, Jeff Rogers, and hear the heartwarming tale of how Rogers has helped the musician get into shape and manage his back condition (read: sciatica). The whole thing is conducted in a very serious tone so it is difficult to tell if it's all just a bit of fun or an odd attempt at fusing your typical work out video with a Jenny Craig commercial.
Either way, it's a funny little segment and reveals a very different side of Bon Iver: "We find a little fitness room" to work out in while we wait for a show to start. So cute!
Bon Iver are coming to Australia in 2012 to headline Golden Plains and a heap of other sideshows, all of which are sold out.
