I know that for many of us January is a time to kick start our fitness regimes, maybe because we want to feel healthier after an indulgent Christmas, we might want to work on our overall fitness or maybe we want to lose a few lbs. This year more than ever I’m feeling the need to stay fit and healthy as I find it does wonders for my mental health and general mood. So I am really pleased to have discovered Jonple, a health and fitness app that’s tailored to you.
Jonple was founded in 2017 and then launched in September 2020 following three years in development. Jonple focuses on the science and psychology behind health and fitness and how it can be used to create long-term solutions to help people live a healthy life. They wanted to cut through the fads and short-term focus of most health and fitness programs, and instead guide users around the decisions they make and help them understand what drives them.
“With the help of experts in each area, the team worked to create a specialist app that is customised to the specific needs of each user. Every fitness and nutrition program is unique to the requirements of each individual and is underpinned by an understanding of the psychology behind motivation and decision-making.”
When you first log on to the app you are asked to complete a questionnaire about your lifestyle, current activity levels and goals so that Jonple can create a plan that is tailored specifically to you. Once you’ve done this you can start exploring the app, which is made up of three main sections; nutrition, fitness and psychology.
The nutrition area of the app contains your meal plan which is nutritionally balanced for your fitness goals and designed by Jonple’s nutritionists and chefs. Each day you’ll find suggestions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. You can browse and change the suggested meals or add in your own if you like, but it’s a great place to start for inspiration.
I really like the nutrition section as I often find myself eating the same meals over and over again so it’s nice to discover some new, delicious recipes. I particularly enjoyed the peanut butter and banana smoothie, and the chicken, avocado and tomato bagel. I like that the recipes are simple and easy to create at home yourself. I am no cook, so I really appreciated this. There’s also step by step video guides that accompany each dish so you can follow along with ease.
I was particularly excited to check out the fitness area of the Jonple app, as I enjoy doing home workouts and I’m always looking for new ones to try. When you first access the fitness page you’ll be asked to complete a fitness test, which is designed to gauge your fitness levels so that Jonple can work out a fitness plan that is right for you. If at any point you come across a workout that you don’t fancy, you can easy change to a different one. Each exercise includes a video from a qualified instructor and there’s no equipment needed for home workouts, making it ideal for beginners.
I usually do the same few home workouts on repeat and it can get very boring. I like that the Jonple app keeps exercise interesting with thousands of workouts including HIIT, circuits, interval training and more. The variety really helps me to stay motivated.
All About U
This section is the psychology side of the app, and what makes it different from other fitness apps in my opinion. ‘All About U’ helps you to understand your own behavior so that you’re able to stick to your fitness plan. I don’t know about you but I know I’ve tried and failed to get healthy many times in the past, I can lose my motivation quite easily so I have found this part of the app really helpful.
‘All About U’ includes guided exercises, expert tips and videos to keep you focused on your goals. You can also record your thoughts in the journal, this is a great way of keeping track of your progress and it’s nice to look back on to see how far you’ve come.

I’ve really enjoyed using the Jonple app and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to get fit and live a healthier lifestyle. I love the variety of recipes and workouts, you can never get bored with this app. The step by step recipe videos are great and absolutely fool proof, even for someone like me who is rubbish at cooking!
The psychology aspect of the app is fantastic and exactly what most people are missing when they get started with a new fitness plan. If we don’t understand our own behavior and what motivates us, then how can we expect to stick to a fitness plan?
Price wise I feel Jonple is worth the money if you are serious about starting your fitness journey. I would recommend trying the 14 day free trial and if you like the app as much as I do, you can choose to continue with your plan. Remember you always have the option to cancel at anytime, so you are never tied in with Jonple.
Have you tried the Jonple app yet? What are your fitness goals for 2021?
