Think about how committed you are to your job. You show up. You do what’s expected.
Maybe you even put in a little more effort because you want to get ahead.
Imagine if you gave your fitness and nutrition choices the same priority and discipline.
Whether you’re a time-strapped stay-at-home parent or your job comes with a desk and a commute, you owe it to yourself to focus on your fitness and nutrition.
Because when you do, you’ll perform better at everything else!
That’s why Beachbody’s newest Super Trainer Jennifer Jacobs created a no-excuses 4-week programme that puts you in the mindset that your fitness and nutrition aren’t optional — they’re THE priority.
Job 1 is a 20-minutes-a-day, 5-days-a-week functional training programme that helps you prioritise your health and fitness habits — no matter how much you have going on in your life.
It’s also the first Beachbody programme to be filmed in both English and French.
If you’re ready to finally put yourself first, Jennifer will help you get it done.
What Is Job 1?
Ever notice how exercise and good nutrition sometimes drop off your to-do list when you’re busy? It shouldn’t be that way and you know it.
Job 1 combines Jennifer’s no-nonsense training style, 20-minute workouts, and your choice of two super-simple nutrition plans to help you build a healthy routine and stick with it.
All Jennifer asks is that you shift your focus: prioritise yourself the way you prioritise your job or your family.
You’ll tap into a wealth of benefits. More self-confidence. Increased strength. And day by day, the weight falls off. Make your health your top priority and you’ll see major improvements in almost every part of your life.
What Kind of Workouts Are in Job 1?
A 20-minute workout may not seem like enough to get results.
But just wait until you try Jennifer’s innovative functional training.
You’ll hit multiple muscle groups every single day for a total-body sweat that leaves you feeling stronger, invigorated, and accomplished.
You’ll devote three days to strength training. Jennifer knows the best jobs keep you challenged, so each strength workout features a different structure to help you make progress and build strength without adding bulk.
You’ll also have one day of endurance cardio and one day of HIIT to help build your stamina, improve your energy, and dial-in the fat burn.
Jennifer is famous for her amazing motivation in the gym, and especially on the bike.
So, as a bonus, Job 1 also includes four 20-minute indoor cycling workouts — a first for any Beachbody programme!
They’re totally optional, but if you have a stationary bike at home — you can choose to do these workouts on your cardio days to add variety to your routine.
On top of that, we plan on releasing five bonus workouts after launch, so keep an eye out!
Four of them focus on a specific muscle group, while the last one is an additional recovery routine for days when you feel like you could use the extra stretch and mobility work.
How Does Nutrition Fit Into Job 1?
Treat every workout like a meeting with Jennifer, making sure your nutrition is also on-point so you can give each one your all.
No complicated calorie-counting, deprivation, or complex meal planning required.
