- These days, Jenna stays in killer shape by working out with buddies. “I have friends who meet me a couple of days a week in my building,” she said.
Jenna Bush Hager just filmed Today with Hoda & Jenna in New Orleans and, from the looks of it, she had the best time.
Jenna shared a super lively photo of herself and Hoda Kotb trekking own a New Orleans street, looking like she’s having the time of her life. There’s Jenna clutching a drink in one hand and Hoda in the other, while flashing her seriously toned arms and legs as she rocked a belted shorts ‘fit.
“NOLA! We ❤️you! @hodakotb @hodaandjenna,” she wrote in the caption. People were all about it in the comments. “OMG you two 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥,” one wrote. “Jenna you look adorable and so do you Hoda,” said another.
Last year, the 41-year-old TV personality told ET that she was inspired to change her workout routine after she was asked to dress as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader for Halloween. “I have to tell you, when your boss says you’re gonna be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader—and I grew up in Dallas—guess what? You try to get fit,” she said.
Jenna and Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie actually danced with the Cowboys cheerleaders and Jenna said it inspired her to get into dance-based workouts. “I’m continuing,” she said. “It was time. I had three kids. My youngest is two. It’s just sort of the progression of getting back into fighting shape.”
By the way, Jenna said she’s big into working out with buddies. “I have friends who meet me a couple of days a week in my building and I work out with this incredible woman who was a [New York] Knicks dancer,” she said. “So, yes. There is dancing. There [are] ab workouts, which frankly [I] did not have an ab before we started doing it, but I found one little ab down in there.”

Jenna also shared on her show that she started working out before she shoots. “I think I’ve figured out what kind of works for me,” she said. “The difference is, I wake up before the show and work out—and really workout.”
She also said she has a healthy mindset about the kind of results she’ll see. “I thought I weighed what I weighed at the end of college, and what I realized is since then, I’ve had three babies, I am 20 years older—I’m never going to weigh that again, and that’s okay,” she said. “Life is so much more beautiful because of it.”
Jenna also told Women’s Health that she uses a Peloton and lifts weights, too. “I’m obsessed with jumping on mini trampolines or doing dance cardio,” she said. “But those things are hard to do before work.”
Foodwise, Jenna told WH that she’s very “cognizant” about what she eats. She starts her day with water, coffee, and green juice with Amazing Grass green superfood powder. Lunch is usually a salad. “It’s all over the place, but some type of protein, beans, broccoli, and a ton of vegetables,” she said. Dinner tends to be tacos a lot. “My kids are usually like, tacos again? But I’m like, [they’re] the best.” Jenna said. “After dinner’s done, I’m cleaning up and then I’m [doing] three bedtime routines. I just can’t wait to get in bed and go to sleep.”
