TEXT Jacob Brown




For more than a year now, New York’s favorite fashion son, Marc Jacobs, has been hitting the gym. And he’s got the muscles to prove it. “For the first time I feel happy with myself physically and mentally,” says 44-year-old Jacobs. The fitness trip all began with a visit to a nutritionist who insisted, as part of a diet overhaul, that exercise be put on the menu. Keeping this mandate in mind, Jacobs was introduced to New York–based personal trainer Easy. The two hit it off and thus began the transformation into the muscle-bound Mighty Marc we see today.  In spite of his obviously hectic schedule, the
designer manages to get to the gym two hours a day, seven days a week. For Easy, this level of commitment often means traveling as part of Jacobs’s retinue—to Paris, London, back to New York, wherever. While many celebrities take cover in private home gyms, the designer has no qualms about sweating in public. In these photos he is training at L’Usine. “It’s by far the best gym in Paris,” says Easy. “It’s beautifully styled, and we have a great time working out there.”  He may be having a great time, but whatever country Jacobs finds himself in, the two hours with Easy are no walk in the park. The routines are strenuous, designed to maximize not just general fitness but targeted muscle growth as well. Upping the sexiness factor is important, and Jacobs is refreshingly up-front
about wanting his body to look good. Looking good of course is tied to feeling good, and what’s good for the mind is good for the body. “I want to be healthy in mind, body, and spirit,” he says, “and keep getting younger looking, which is how I feel.”
