Joe Jonas Keeps a Mobile Gym in the Back of His Tesla – GQ

This time last year, Joe Jonas tells me, the pandemic forced him into a much calmer way of life. The Jonas Brothers had to cancel an eight-date residency at the Park MGM, and while there were certainly downsides to downshifting on the heels of a major album release (the group released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins, in mid-2019), Jonas tells GQ that the past year was an opportunity for him to really home in on his routine and embrace healthier, more mindful lifestyle.

Now I do a weekly meditation with a group of friends of mine via Zoom for like, 10 to 20 minutes on Sundays. One of them is a former monkhe leads it, he says. Its great because this isnt us just like getting together to play a game. Its us talking about our feelings and how we're doing and checking in with each other.

But his routine isn't completely monk-like it also involves a gin cocktail or two. GQ recently sat down with the middle Jonas as he promoted a new partnership with Tanqueray Sevilla Orange, to hear about his diet, go-to Los Angeles sushi restaurant, and being ready to work out a moment's notice.

For Real-Life Diet, GQ talks to high-performing people about their diet, exercise routines, and pursuit of wellness. Keep in mind that what works for them might not necessarily be healthy for you.

GQ: Lifes probably a lot different now than you expected, isnt it?

Joe Jonas: Well, for sure. The pandemic forced me into a routine, which Ive liked. Ive been able to figure out when to get up in the morning, and pick and be really intentional about how I get my day started, then pick and choose my own schedule.

When do you get up?

I usually wake up around 7:00 or 7:30, and I try to give myself an hour before I do anything, even a work out. The first thing I do with that time is meditate. I use Headspace. Even if it's like three minutes, sometimes Ill listen while Im brushing my teeth and getting ready. Its just about being mindful instead of starting any social media.

Then I do some Duolingo. Im slowly learning Italian. After that, I'm on a group text with a group of a few friends, and we write to each other what we're grateful for every day. So I do like seven to 10 things. It could be as simple as, I'm grateful that the sun is coming up, Im grateful for this delicious cup of coffee that's going to get me through my day, or Im grateful for my family, friends, loved ones. These days, I end it with Im grateful for the health and safety for my friends and family during these difficult times. Then, I listen to NPRs Up First while I make a pour over coffee, then a smoothie.

Whats in the smoothie?

It's all the greens you can possibly have. Superfoods, some prebiotics, probiotics, organic vegetables and fruits. I use kale and some ginger occasionally and some vegan protein powder.

Whats next?

Then I get a workout in. I'll work out for about 30 to 40 minutestypically something from my trainer Matt Blankand then probably hit the Peloton for another 20 or 30, then go to the sauna. I really like to boxcardio-based, high intensity stuff.

I even have a little mobile gym in my Tesla, which came in handy on set the other day. I'd rather be doing something, keeping my body moving, instead of just sitting around and playing on my phone or watching a movie when we have downtime.

Have you always been this big into health and wellness?

I think it's more in recent years, and it definitely comes in waves. I've realized that Im going 100 miles per hour every day, whether Im working or not. To maintain that health and to feel good about myself mentally, physically, emotionally, a lot of these routines are going to get me through the day, the week, the month. Thats why I try to protect my mornings. Thats my me time.
