Beachbody’s newest workout program, Job 1, is about to launch in December!!! I am SO pumped about Job 1 because so many women I work with struggle to find time to workout during the holiday season. Job 1 has 20 minute efficient workouts that are designed to get you results in the least amount of time possible. Here’s all the details as well as guidance for runners who want to do Beachbody’s Job 1.
Who is Job 1 Best For?
Job 1 is going to be a great program for any one who is BUSY and doesn’t have a lot of time to fit in a workout. The premise of the program is that if you can schedule in your workouts like they are as important as your job, then you won’t skip them! And if you can’t fit in 20 minutes, 5 days a week – then it’s clearly not a priority for you to workout.
I think that Job 1 is a great Beachbody program for runners because of how short the workouts are. 20 minute Job 1 strength workouts can be added on at the end of a run or later in the day. The cardio workouts (or you can sub these out for optional cycling workouts) are a quick and efficient cross training option on non-run days!
Who is Jennifer Jacobs?
Jennifer Jacobs is the newest Beachbody trainer. Jennifer is certified through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) as a personal trainer, nutrition coach, and fitness nutrition specialist, and she’s also a certified indoor cycling instructor through Schwinn and the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).

Jennifer is well known as one of the most popular Peloton cycling instructors before coming to Beachbody. Jennifer is fluent in English and French, and Job 1 will be filmed and released in BOTH French and English! I met Jennifer at our Beachbody Leadership Retreat in October and she was incredibly friendly and knowledgable! Beachbody had a MYX bike set out in the lobby and she was out there helping coaches learn how to get the correct fit. We are very lucky to have her!!!
What Are the Job 1 Workouts Like?
Job 1 is a 4 week program with 5 20 minute workouts per week. The workouts are very beginner friendly, but the program can challenge ALL levels. On a call, I heard Jennifer speak about how the muscle group pairings for this program are very unique, so you’re going to do some things you’ve never done before!
Unlike the recent 645 program, which was very low paced, Job 1 workouts are fast paced, efficient and high energy. Jennifer’s coaching style is no-non sense and if you want someone to tell you like it is, she will! You will sweat a lot in 20 minutes & get everything you can out of those 20 minutes. As always, what you put in you will get out – so mentally prepare (and take your Energize!) before the workout so you feel great.
There are 3 strength workouts per week and 2 cardio workouts per week. There are also 4 optional cycling workouts that you can sub in for the cardio workouts or add on if you’d like. There are also 5 bonus workouts called “overtime workouts” – Legs, Glutes, Upper Body, Core, and Stretch.
Here’s What the Job 1 Workout Calendar Looks Like:
Monday: Start Strong
Tuesday: HIIT it OR Bonus Cycling Workout
Wednesday: Build and Burn
Thursday: 20 Minute Sweat Session OR Bonus Cycling Workout
Friday: Finish Stronger
Jennifer is famous for her amazing motivation in the gym, and on the bike. So, as an added bonus, Job 1 will have a cycling portion which is completely optional! No bike is required for this program, all you need are dumbbells and resistance loops.
If you have a MYX bike or any other stationary bike, there are 4 bonus cycling workouts (you can also do Jennifer’s BODi cycling workouts if you wanted) called HIIT & Hills, HIIT & Tabata, 20 Minute Sweat Sweat Session & Power Climb . P.S. We currently have a Black Friday sale for $500 off MYX bikes – contact me to get a code and link!

Job 1 & Running Schedules
There are a few ways that I think runners can incorporate Job 1 into their training! I personally plan to complete all 5 workouts per week, including the cardio. Usually, I recommend that runners skip the Beachbody cardio workouts but since there are only 3 20 minute strength workouts, I know that doing the 2 cardio workouts will also help me build muscle!
- Job 1 and Running Hybrid Calendar 1: This calendar has all 5 Job 1 workouts plus all 5 bonus workouts, along with 4 runs. There are 3 days a week that you will do a Job 1 workout AND a run.
- Job 1 and Running Hybrid Calendar 2: This calendar has 5 Job 1 workouts, no bonus workouts and 4 runs. This calendar has Job 1 strength & cardio workout stacked, alternating with run days.
- Job 1 and Running Hybrid Calendar 3: This “time saver” calendar is for busy runners who do not want to do additional cardio. This calendar has 3 runs and 3 Job 1 strength workouts, and no cardio workouts.
I can see runners using Job 1 in different ways depending on their training. For example, in base building you might go with calendar 1 but as you get into peak half or full marathon training or if you’ve got a busy time at work, calendar 3 could be a great option!
Join My Job 1 VIP Accountability Groups
I am hosting a very special 4 Week Job 1 VIP accountability group starting December 6th. This group is going to be all about making time for ourselves during the crazy busy holiday season! The content and support in this group will be focused on self care and putting ourselves at the top of our busy holiday “to do list” I hope for our group to truly be a place where you can come and work on yourself.
I will also be hosting a Job 1 group in January for those who want to wait til the new year or go for round 2. The January group will have a heavy emphasis on nutrition.
I really can’t wait for this! If you’d like to join us, please fill out this form.
