After her oncologist recommended regular exercise during radiation treatment and thereafter, Jacenko adopted a new approach. Her hardcore workout regimen includes three weights sessions a week with trainer Dan Adair at Sydney gym 98 Riley Street – “I do weights only training and what feels like a million weighted squats and plenty of sit-ups on a ball,” she says – plus two weekly F45 cardio classes, which, as anyone who’s survived one can attest, are not for the faint-hearted.
The results of her new approach were clear for all to see on her recent Hawaii holiday, during which Jacenko posted a series of snaps flaunting her toned physique.
Jacenko supplements her exercise plan with a strict diet. “I’m very careful with what I eat – basically a sashimi sushi diet daily, washed down with a couple of green juices a day,” she says.
