Colombian-born Jono Castano is one of the world’s leading celebrity personal trainers.

Having recently opened his own ACERO Gym in Sydney, he has made a name for himself as a body transformation coach, helping his clients to impressive long-lasting results.

With this five-move circuit – taken from Castano’s six-week Body Transformation programme at Live Now – you’re going to do 1 minute of each exercise, moving from one to the other with minimal rest.

Once one round is complete, rest a further minute, then repeat for a total of 4-5 rounds.
