She also recently competed in Finland, and shared some highlights from the day on Instagram. Jenneke captioned the post, "Season best of 12.69 tonight at the @kuortanegames 😆 Great night with solid races from the Aussie contingent! Thank you Finland!!!" How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Michelle Jenneke stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Does A Variety Of Workouts

Jenneke shared some of her favorite workouts with Body & Soul. She says that she does a variety of different things. "It's a lot of heavy weights there, plus full body exercises and quite a bit of plyometric [exercises]. I start with heavy weights, and then I'll do some lighter functional circuit, towards the end. All up, that takes an hour and a half to two hours… and sometimes when I finish a session I just lie on the ground."


She Eats A Healthy Breakfast



Jenneke also shared her diet secrets with Body & Soul. She shared her favorite breakfasts for training day. "It really depends on what my training day looks like, but if I've got training in the morning (which I often do at the moment) I'll have cereal generally before I go out and train. Then, I actually love having a Milo after a hard session – it's got good levels of protein and iron in it – and then I make myself a second breakfast, which could be muesli with yoghurt or bacon and eggs."


She Dances

Jenneke likes to dance before a meet. "The dancing preparation is good," Jenneke said to The New Zealand Herald. "People see me doing a dance on the track and it's part of my enjoyment … I love being there and I love racing and that's how I express that. If you watch me during my warm up I'm dancing the whole way through it. I've always got music playing and I'm just really getting into it, it's how I pump myself up for the race."


She Swims

Jenneke loves to swim to stay in shape. She shared this video on Instagram of herself snorkeling in the ocean. Jenneke captioned the post, "A little taste of my amazing holiday in the Whitsundays last week 🌴⛵️ @suncoastcharters @hamiltonisland #gopro 🎶 Born To Be Yours – Kygo & Imagine Dragons."

She Trains Consistently

Jenneke shared her training secrets with Body & Soul. She says that consistency is important. "I do three track sessions a week, and they can be from 2-3 hours each, which can be full on. You do some warm up, a hurdle session, and then a sprint session after that."
