Hollywood’s Hottest Trainer Loves This Workout

Alicia Keys and Pink have some things in common: they are incredible, empowered musical artists; they are hard-working moms; and they are fierce role models for young women everywhere. They also share a secret weapon when it comes to keeping their bodies strong and powerful: personal trainer and fitness guru Jeanette Jenkins.

Ms. Jenkins is known for being an influential figure in the fitness industry. Not only does she train several Hollywood stars, but she has 25 years of fitness experience under her belt. Bottom line: we definitely trust her opinion when it comes to health and wellness, and we’re not the only ones (just ask her 405k+ Instagram followers or her 526k+ Facebook fans)!

This is why we are so proud to announce that Jeanette Jenkins has partnered with STRONG by Zumba® to become a Master Trainer for the program. The music-led, high-intensity program combines bodyweight and plyometric exercises and syncs them all to music created specifically for the class, which Ms. Jenkins believes is key to motivating followers.

“What attracted me to this program is the role music plays in the workout—tracks are reverse-engineered, meaning that routines are created first and then music producers score a soundtrack to it, so every movement is matched to a beat,” said Jenkins. “I’ve been in the fitness industry for more than two decades and this is the first time I’ve seen a fitness program take this approach where music is the main motivator! The music motivates you to push harder & complete more reps, which in turn gives you more results, and the FUN factor is off the charts! I am thrilled to join the STRONG by Zumba family and bring this innovative workout to my fans. I know STRONG by Zumba will motivate & inspire millions of people to get moving!”

As a Master Trainer, Jenkins will host training sessions throughout the U.S. for those wanting to become licensed in the program, including an official kick-off at the IDEA World Convention in Las Vegas on July 19th. She will host additional trainings throughout the year and co-host the first ever STRONG by Zumba® pop-up series in the Hamptons this summer.
