Do what others can’t – this is @janedo
I went to check out Jane Do and their $40 unlimited, 14 day experience and I fell in love immediately. This women empowered, judgement free, sweat session is just what I needed in New Jersey. Located in Jersey City, Hoboken, and Edgewater*, the boutique studio provides the Manhattan boutique fitness experience I was looking for.
*Edgewater, NJ is the location I will be writing about
TravelFitLOVE: From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with a friendly face and zero pretentious vibes. Everyone is there to have a good time and sweat.it.out. The pink lighting and disco ball give a “lets do this”, girl power feeling.
TRAMP STAMP – Trampoline class: This class combined jumping on the trampoline with sections of sculpt and toning. I like that you get off of the trampoline for toning sections, which mixes up the class (and passes the time). These trampolines are lower than what I am used to but it was good for my first class back after having a baby.
TRAIN JANE – Boot Camp: Mix athletic dance cardio with bootcamp style strength training. It was fun to start dancing again and moving my body that way while also doing burpees, mountain climbers, and everything else that gets your heart rate up using body strength. There are no dance combinations, just movement so previous dance experience is not necessary.
FLOOR PLAY – Muscle Toning: This class was all muscle toning and sculpting put to the beat of music. There were no combinations so just a lot of repeating the same exercises. Think planks, bicep curls, squats, crunches Etc. I sweat less in this class than the others.
Additional classes include “Dance Your A** Off” which is a full dance cardio class, and “Step it Up” which is a cardio step class with strength training.
Additional Thoughts: None of the classes that I took combine movements into a routine. You just repeat exercises rather than build on them. It was great for me since I am just getting back into working out but doing a routine also gives you the feeling that you are working towards something. Parking can be limited in this location and the lobby area is small as well. So while you want to get there early for parking a spot, there’s not much of a “hang out” area.
They have an area to freshen up or 1 shower if needed.
Check out their FIRST TIMER SPECIAL: 14 days unlimited for $40. Even if you attend TWO classes, its worth it!
Jane Do can also be found through the NEO U Fitness app for in home workouts – or for working out while traveling 😉
