Our latest episode of the DOSE Hacking Happiness podcast sees us talking with Dame Jessica Ennis Hill, world class athlete and one of our all time heroes. Known for her sporting achievements, most famously winning gold at the 2012 London Olympics, Jess opens up about motherhood and her new fitness app Jennis.
After taking time out to focus on family, the “mother of all comebacks”, as she’s often known, returned to her career in athletics 15 months after the birth of her son Reggie, to win Gold at the Beijing World Championships and Silver at the Rio Olympics. From elite athlete to busy mum, she’s used to juggling many different aspects of her personal and professional life.
Her latest project, Jennis, is a fitness app to help you great results in short amounts of time. She says: “I was lucky enough to train with the best in the world, and I want to share that health and fitness expertise in a way that’s realistic and achievable”. With three programmes to suit you – Pregnancy, Postnatal and Fitness (you choose) – when you sign up you’ll get Jess coaching you with expert knowledge and special coaching plans that are all designed for your needs.
In the podcast, we talk about the importance of connecting with your baby through meditation in the third trimester and how even an olympic athlete like Jessica Ennis-Hill was overwhelmed and confused about what exercises you should or shouldn’t do during pregnancy.
Chatting with DOSE co-founder, Hettie Holmes, Jessica is refreshingly honest about the realities of “mum guilt” and how she stays focused on what’s important to her and her family. We hope that you enjoy this episode of “Hacking Happiness” and please don’t forget to leave a review if you want to hear more.
