"...an unparalleled fitness experience. I find it so difficult to remain motivated as a working mom and since starting with Jolly Bodies, I truly look forward to working out each day."
" I live in NYC and am no stranger to excellent trainers - but the Jollys stand apart. They are a pleasure to be around and motivating as hell."
..."their workouts are created using Ph.D. level science (yeah, Lee Ann is basically Scientist Fitness Barbie) and Funky Town level fun, and their positive energy is one in a million."
"You can't walk away from a Jolly Bodies workout without feeling infinitely better about yourself."
"The quality, frequency, and variety of workouts is truly unmatched. This is the first time I've done digital classes like this and felt like I was in a group class all along."

Embrace the pivot.
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, we began the Jolly Bodies digital studio by converting our garage into a full-fledged production studio. With zero knowledge of how to record and produce online workouts, we quickly got our butts in gear and pulled frequent all-nighters to learn as much as we could about creating an online community through our fitness programming. Change can seem scary sometimes, but just like starting a new workout program can seem scary, there's usually a rainbow on the other side of it.
Through the Jolly Bodies Digital Studio, we've been able to make friends from all over the U.S. - and beyond! Check out our JB member map - you may find a Jollower near you!
How much space do I need to do the workouts?
You'll need about 6 square feet of space in order to do the workouts. Lee Ann uses a 5 x 7 rug to mark her boundaries and that works great! A garage, basement, living room, or deck are also great options. If you're at the gym you should have plenty of space...but if you can hear the person closest to you breathing, you need more room.
How long are the workouts?
Each JB class video is between 30 - 50 minutes. We also have a library of JB minis, which are 10-15 min. target (arms, legs, core, cardio) specific add - on sessions
I noticed there are 5 workouts for every week. Do I do the workouts 5 days in a row? What do I do on the other 2 days of the week?
The workout schedules are designed so that the 5 weekly workouts can be done 5 days in a row if you choose because we focus on different muscles each day. However, you may have a schedule that doesn't allow this. Your schedule may be Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday versus Monday-Friday straight through. And that's okay! If you DO decide to work out 5 days in a row, you may use the 2 extra days to recover, repeat your favorite workout from the week, or do your own thing!
Do I HAVE to do all 5 scheduled workouts every week to see a difference in my body?
Our programs are designed so that those that participate consistently, in conjunction with a balanced diet, will see results. However, that does NOT mean that if you miss a workout you'll lose your progress.
How do I know if I am doing the exercises correctly?
For JB videos, we'll guide you all the way on form, technique, and where you should be "feeling" the exercises.
Am I going to get sweaty?
Absolutely you are. Be proud of your puddles. We call them Jolly Drops.
Am I going to be sore?
It is highly likely that you will experience soreness when beginning any new exercise routine. If you experience soreness that persists past 72 hours post workout, you may need to back off a little bit or decrease your resistance slightly.
I'm nervous that if I lift weights, I'm going to look "bulky". Will these workouts make me bigger?
Perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions regarding weight training as it pertains to women is that lifting weights will somehow lead to increases in body fat mass or massive amounts of hypertrophy.
Then why are my pants fitting tighter around my legs?
These workouts are desinged to lean out the body. If you're not eating extra calories and you're doing the workouts regularly, the tightness in your legs is likely coming from fluid retention due to muscle soreness.
Is it okay if I don't do the workouts in the order they are listed every week?
Our programs schedules are designed for the workouts to be done in consecutive order so that you don't wind up working your lower body 2 days in a row. If a lower body workout is listed first, please do that workout before moving on to your second workout of the week. This is to keep you as balanced and safe as possible during the program.
How do I know if I'm overdoing it during my workouts?
Sometimes it's hard to know how hard to push yourself safely. These workouts are designed to elevate your heartrate, sometimes to a great extent, and therefore be uncomfortable. However, there's a BIG difference between discomfort and distress - and we don't want you to be in distress!
Where can I learn about the formats?
We have 6 formats in the digital studio. There are detailed descriptions of each format under the tab on the menu that says "our formats".
What equipment do I need to do the workouts?
The workouts within the JB digital studio are dynamic and always different while minimizing the amount of equipment you'll need at home.
Can I play these workouts on my T.V.?
Yes! We give specific directions inside the JB studio on how to cast your workout videos to your T.V. using a number of device combinations.
I'm a beginner. Can I do these workouts?
Sometimes the hardest part is just beginning - and we get that!
I'm pregnant. Can I do these workouts?
Always, always, ALWAYS discuss your exercise routine with your OB-GYN during your regular check-up. Depending on how far along you are, abdominal work and high impact exercises, as well as exercises that increase heart rate to a certain level, may be prohibited.
I'm recovering from an injury or have chronic issues with a particular area of my body. Is it okay for me to do these workouts?
Always, always, ALWAYS disclose your exercise routine to your physician. Not only can he/she direct you to exercises that may HELP to heal your existing issue, but more importantly you'll find out if there are any "off limits" exercises that could prevent you from getting better.
Does payment automatically recur?
Payments will automatically recur every month on the day that you originally purchased the plan until you decide to cancel.
Is there a cancellation policy?
No! No cancellation fees. You may stop the program at anytime. However, once your payment for each 30 day period is processed, we do not offer refunds, regardless of whether or not you use the workouts that you will have access to during that period.
