Posing for photos on the red carpet at the event held in Downtown LA, Jono showed off his urban style in Boss black sweats, teamed with a matching black denim jacket.

He added a pair of black Balenciaga sneakers and a black cap to the look. 

Jono described Kornit Fashion Week as an ‘unbelievable experience’ and said he loves ‘coming down to fashion shows and checking out the latest trends in fashion’.  

The fitness guru temporarily relocated to the States a few weeks ago, and has been mixing with Hollywood’s elite including Kim Kardashian’s hairstylist Chris Appleton.

Jono went on to describe the fitness scene in LA as being ‘very similar to Sydney’.  

‘The difference I’ve noticed [however] is the diversity in training over here [in LA]. There’s a class for absolutely everything and anything. I’m really looking forward to bringing an Aussie product over here.’

As many other trainers could relate, Jono’s in-person sessions slowed down amid the coronavirus pandemic. However he turned to OnlyFans to grow his business.  

Jono told Daily Mail Australia in September that sharing his fitness advice and workouts to paying subscribers had been hugely beneficial for him. 

‘With the global pandemic having moved a lot of people to work out at home more often, I wanted to offer my daily workouts to everyone on more of a global level,’ he explained.

‘Quite simply, OnlyFans has expanded enormously during the pandemic and fitness has become one of the top-performing categories on the platform.

‘I’m able to further reach people all over the world – I’m getting subscribers from so many countries and most of which I may have not reached without the platform.  

‘It’s been an amazing experience so far and I’m thrilled with the response I’ve gotten.’

Jono has so far kept his content fitness-focused instead of sexually explicit. 

OnlyFans has recently made efforts to expand beyond pornographic content.

In August, the company launched a new ‘suitable for work’ app that allows people to share nudity free content about topics such as fitness, wellness and cooking.

Called OFTV, the free app has a library of more than 800 videos, including ones with its biggest stars such as Mia Khalifa, Bella Thorne and Holly Madison.

There are also clips from chefs, Pilates instructors and podcasters, as well as meditation videos and instructions for how to make tasty cocktails.

Some 130 million people use OnlyFans every month to follow fitness instructors, get cooking tips or watch porn, but it only exists as a website because Apple and Google won’t allow it on their app stores.

OFTV, however, is available for free on all major devices, including iOS, Amazon Fire and Roku. It was launched in January but only now has the company started to promote it.
