We had the good fortune of connecting with Jacey Lambros & Danielle DeAngelo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jacey Lambros & Danielle DeAngelo, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
As former Radio City Rockettes with a combined 17 years experience as world famous Radio City Rockettes, we know first hand the power of women coming together to achieve something great. Hard work, sacrifice and resilience earned us a place in line with the Rockettes, and the same dedication that has allowed us to stay fully self funded as we have expanded our business beyond brick and mortar studios and into an omnichannel experience.

We also know that it takes a comprehensive cross training regime to be the most powerful version of yourself so we created Jane DO, a fitness brand that offers variety and caters to every woman. Jane DO has women reaching new levels of strength and confidence in the studio so they can take it outside the studio where it really matters and DO incredible things.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Fed up with fitness stereotypes that revolve around perfection, Jane DO is redefining the word healthy. Jane DO believes in something bigger where women measure success by confidence, not inches or pounds. Jane DO is on a quest to create the largest community of the world’s most powerful women.

We like to say that nothing worthwhile comes easy. Forced to close all of our studio locations due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we didn’t miss a beat, or a day of classes and immediately began operating out of the garage of Jacey’s recently restored firehouse in Jersey City, NJ. With our Jane DO Digitial platform – utilizing household items in new and inventive ways in an effort to keep consumers engaged, happy and healthy while following social distancing guidelines.

Staying healthy and continuing to workout is our best defense against Covid , so our entire team felt strongly about continuing to give our community the tools and resources to foster strength and health outside of the studio walls. We knew that many of our Janes felt isolated and lonely, so we have and continue to use our Jane DO Digital platform as a way for our community to stay connected to one another.

As a business we have learned that having the ability to adapt is crucial, and that when things get tough, you must get tougher. Together, with our amazing team, we have been able to continue to serve our community with our mission at our forefront.

We offer five unique classes that fuse aerobics, strength training, and flexibility to provide the variety women need to DO it all. All classes are 50 minute, total body workouts designed to LIFT your A$$ and your SPIRIT.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
While our studios are based on the East coast at the moment, our Jane DO Digital platform allows us to create and share content from anywhere. When we’re in LA, here’s our typical rundown: 7am – Jane DO livestream class from our hotel balcony
9am – shakes from Sunlife Organics – the million dollar is pricey, but we’ve learned to replicate on budget at home
10am – hike Runyon or up to the Observatory
1pm – lunch at Great White in Venice
5pm – sunset walk on the pier in Santa Monica
7pm – dinner in DTLA at Babel

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We have to shout out to our incredible, lean team of bada$$ trainers, managers, sales associates, and beyond who make us the multifaceted company that we are. One that can pivot quickly and expand into all realms of female empowerment. Jane DO is founded on the mission to build the largest community of the most powerful women, it’s our Jane DO crew that inspire, lead and empower women to be the most confident version of themselves.
