Fitness Fanatic Meghan Markle had Spanish personal trainer who instructed her in Kickboxing and Martial Arts

Meghan Markle’s former personal trainer revealed he enjoyed training the royal because she was ‘sympathetic’ and definitely a fitness fanatic.

Jorge Blanco, originally from Zaragoza, Spain, lives in Toronto and trained Meghan in martial arts, kickboxing, and boxing while she was based in the city filming US legal drama Suits, he said the royal used to speak to him in Spanish but with an Argentine accent.

‘I had a great time training with her because she is super sympathetic and also speaks Spanish with an Argentine accent,’ he said. 


While studying for her degree in International Relations, Meghan, then 20, worked as a junior press officer at the American embassy in Argentina. Jorge, who is also a  trained lawyer and is known as ‘Spaniard’ to his clients added he would be happy to train Meghan again, and even invited Harry to join her.

The trainer, who also works with Chirs Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky, Drake, and Robert Pattinson, added that he spends half the month travelling the world to workout with his famous clients. Craig McNamee, who also trained Meghan in Toronto, has also revealed Meghan would undertake 45-minute sessions three to four times week beginning with a cardio warm-up, moving on to stretching followed by a circuit concentrating on her posture ‘since she was on-screen’
