What is Jennis?
Jennis is the brainchild of gold medal winning heptathlete, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill. In the run up to the 2015 world championships, Jessica wasn’t sure she could get back to peak performance, and was forced to adapt her elite regime, cramming intense training sessions in to less time so that she could be with her new baby.
Beating an incredibly strong field at Beijing, Jessica’s approach worked, and it’s the insights from this experience that have inspired the workouts and circuits you can now enjoy in the Jennis app.
The Jennis app boasts three different programmes:
1. Jennis Fitness
For people who want workouts that fit into 30 minutes or less. These are all circuits inspired by Jessica’s career and are designed to help you get fitter, stronger and more confident.
2. Jennis Pregnancy
The same strength and resistance programme that Jess followed throughout her two pregnancies that enabled her to come back so strongly post birth.
3. Jennis Postnatal
The same postnatal plan that Jess followed to help her get gradually back to fitness. Designed in three stages, this programme helps you build up the right muscles, in the right order, and at the right pace.
Is the Jennis Fitness Programme just for elite-level fit people?
No, not at all.
Jessica has designed a super-efficient fitness programme that helps you get stronger, more confident and more toned through pyramid HIIT-style app workouts that are all 29 minutes or less. There are three fitness levels for every workout (beginner, intermediate, advanced).
Every session is coached by Jess, there’s minimal equipment required and there are 5, 20, 26 and 29-minute in-app sessions, so they’re perfect for people with busy lives who want great fitness results at home.
If you want to get progressively fitter, Jess will also help you set goals, get fit and get more confident thanks to her ’30-day kick-start plan’ and her ‘8-week follow-on fitness plan’.
Is the Jennis app available on iPhone and Android phones?
The simple answer is, yes (so no excuses!).
