Jennifer was not into sports when she was growing up, but was always having problems with her weight. She was more focused on her education, and after she matriculated from a local high school, she enrolled at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and graduated four years later with a bachelor’s degree in international relations.
Career of a fitness model
After graduating, Jennifer met a man and married him, and then gave birth to two kids – after the birth of her second child, she weighed 200lb, and unsurprisingly dissatisfied with her looks, Jennifer finally decided to do something about it, and went on to turn her entire life around.
She lost 70lbs in one year, and went on to compete, leading her to winning the Miss Bikini America competition in 1996, so becoming a fitness guru – she took the role of teaching other women how to work on their physiques and how to lose weight. Her company JNL, Inc. Worldwide was officially launched in January 2004, and Jennifer has since published several books related to exercising and dieting. She has her own swimwear line, and two clothing lines called ‘The Jennifer Nicole Lee Collection’ and ‘JNL Clothing Line’.
Jennifer opened her own Fitness Model Factory in Miami, Florida in March 2011 – the company offers tutoring to fitness models, plus photoshoots, and classes on make-up and styling.
Jennifer has become a very successful fitness model, and has posed for numerous magazines (more than 44), while she’s also appeared in numerous TV shows, including but not limited to “Inside Edition”, “Oprah”, “The Early Show”, and “E! Entertainment”. She is not an actress, but nevertheless appeared in “Pain & Gain” movie shot in 2013.
Most popular fitness models in the world
Fitness is currently a very important topic in the world, and people are turning to Instagram to find fitness models there so that they could learn from their workout plans and their diets. “Influence marketing hub” website has shared their list of 10 most popular fitness models on Instagram and surprised or not, Jennifer is not among them – we will mention four of the most popular fitness models:
- Fourth place is held by Ana Cheri, who has amassed nearly 12.4 million followers on her account – she is currently 31 years old, and launched her Instagram account out of nowhere when her figure was already well built;
- Jen Selter is in third place, who has amassed more than 12.8 million followers on her Instagram account. She is currently 24 years old, and began working out when she was 15 – she was working in a fitness gym, and the very first picture of her in a bikini she shared online made her popular overnight;
- In second place is Michelle Lewin, who started off as a catwalk model but then switched to bikini modelling. She started going to the gym to work on her body, and quickly changed her weight from 95lbs to 120lbs of pure muscle;
- Top place is held by Sommer Ray, who is currently followed by more than 21.3 million people on her Instagram account – although she is somewhat new to Instagram as she joined the platform in September 2016, it hasn’t stopped her from becoming the most popular fitness model.
Even though these are the current most popular four fitness models, the industry is moving very quickly and their positions could soon be overthrown by some new names, including Jennifer.
Jennifer’s training and diet plans
Jennifer has written numerous books on fitness, and has also published several articles on the internet related to working out, how to lose weight, and become fit. She has three cardio training sessions per week which do not last longer than 45 minutes, and combines her cardio with strength training circuits. The exercises she usually does during her workouts include crunches, leg presses, leg curls, dips, one-arm dumbbell rows, presses behind neck, triceps pushdowns, incline curls, and standing calf raises. She has shared the exact number of reps of these exercises on the greatestphysiques.com website.
When it comes to the food she eats, Jennifer’s diet consists of proteins, healthy fats and complex carbs, while she doesn’t eat sugar or fast food. She usually eats five times per day, and some of her favorite foods include eggs, spinach, tomatoes, hummus, chicken, fish, and salads.
Love life and relationships
Jennifer hasn’t talked much about her love life as she prefers to keep those matters to herself, however, some things about her past and present affairs are still known.
Jennifer met the man who she thought was the love of her life during her second year at university. Edward Lee was trying to go out with her, while Jennifer was acting hard-to-get before she finally agreed to go on a date with him. They married in 1997, and Jennifer gave birth to their sons named Jaden and Dylan, however, the two divorced in 2014 for unknown reasons. Most of Jennifer’s fans believe that her newfound fame was not something her husband was able to handle, and that jealousy was the main reason behind their divorce. However, others believe that Jennifer became more focused on her own personal life, rather than on her family.
Being as secretive as she is, Jennifer hasn’t talked about any other men she might have dated before or after Edward, and she is currently living in Miami, Florida with her two sons.
