DO some cool sh*t this month in your hood

By Cristin Van Horn

Summer is (unofficially) here and we want you to make the most of it!  Of course you can always hit up the many trails, parks, and beaches that NJ has to offer, but here are some super fun summery things to DO this month that you might not have known about, right here in your neck of the woods.  From family friendly events, to grown and sexy, check out some of Jane’s favorite June happenings!

1) Starting June 1 every Saturday of the season, Jersey City is getting its own open-air night bazaar, the Jersey City Night Market in Journal Square.  Join locals for food, artisan vendors, artists and musicians, and this event is totally dog and kid friendly. Check it out every Saturday from 4pm-10pm at the PATH PLAZA in Journal Square.

2) Opening day for the Hoboken Farmers Market is June 4th. Join local farmers, vendors, butchers and artisans every Tuesday on Garden Street from 2pm-7:30pm, to pick up your home- grown goods and have your very own farm to table spread. From pickles to pig feet, this market has you covered! (If Farmers Markets are your thing, make sure to check out the one in Fort Lee, Edgewater, and Jersey City Heights, all open in June.)

Take PRIDE in who you are

By Cristin Van Horn

How often do you tell your kids that you are proud of them?  What about your girlfriends? Hopefully the answer is a lot, but what about telling yourself that you are proud of YOU.  Somewhere along the road, maybe when we became adults, or picked up boyfriends, or became mothers, we started focusing on everyone else, supporting their dreams, and celebrating their wins.  Our hearts often become so full of pride for everyone else’s accomplishments and achievements, that when it comes to ourselves, we are left feeling selfish and even guilty for feeling self love and … dare I say PROUD.  

Let’s change that!

June is PRIDE month, and at Jane DO we are taking the entire month to whoop it up, celebrate our accomplishments, and take pride in who the F we are!  We will especially be celebrating the LGBTQ community, but want to remind ALL Janes, that now is the time to be you!!

Be proud of who you are.  

Be proud of how far you've come.

And be proud of how far you will continue to go!


In true Jane fashion, we want you to be proud of what you accomplish inside the studio, like lifting heavier weights than you ever have before, or being able to take double classes back to back, but we also want you to allow yourself to feel proud of all that you DO and all that you ARE outside of the studio too.

Thank you for being you…oh and by the way… PROUD OF YOU!


May your Days BEE Sunny & Bright

Get to know the owner and creator of Busy Bee Organics

We sat down with Busy Bee Organics creator Michelle Berckes, to get the scoop on all things health, eats, and being the owner of a busy business.  

What was the catalyst for you to start Busy Bee Organics and who is it for?

I created Busy Bee shortly after I moved to Jersey City 5 years ago and realized the lack of healthy options available.  At the time I was a private chef and the executive chef at a health food cafe in Morris County, NJ and wanted to bring a sampling of what I was doing there back here to my own community. I wanted to fill what I thought was the biggest hole in the market at the time with fully prepared health supportive cuisine. Busy Bee was created for the "Busy Bees" in our area. We customize meals so that anyone and everyone can order from us as little or as much as they like. We do not require a minimum and we do not require you to sign up for a subscription. This way you can order according to your schedule and dietary preference, no frills.

Why is eating healthy important to you and in turn why should it be important to us?

Screen Shot 2019-03-07 at 4.46.10 PM.png

Healthy eating or eating health-supportive foods is important to me for a pretty simple reason, I just feel better. As I became more aware of my body and how I was feeling and looking, I started to realize we are what we eat (and I did not want to be fast, cheap or easy)! Haha The word "healthy" itself is super subjective so my main goal is to get people to fall in love with eating more plants. You will see our menu is plant-forward but we create "healthy" food recipes that also taste awesome. Think Thai Peanut Spaghetti Squash or our Cheesy Chickpea Kale Salad.

IMG-9907.JPG

There is a lot of conflicting information about what is "healthy", not to mention a million different diets.  What advice would you give to someone who felt totally overwhelmed by the idea of eating healthy?

It IS super overwhelming. Everyone has a different opinion of what healthy is and also what healthy looks like. Healthy is a state of mind as well as a lifestyle I suppose. You can eat "healthy" all day long but have negative self-talk and that is not healthy. Also, healthy for one person can be "xyz" and "abc" for someone else. I always look at things big picture and I think the only thing every "diet" or nutrition experts can agree on is...drumroll...PLANTS ARE GOOD! So eat them, and eat a lot of them. If you stick to a mainly whole food, plant forward diet, you will have more energy, better digestion, sleep, skin.. I mean the list goes on

Tell us a little something about your team.

My team is amazing. Im seriously so lucky. Everyone works together like a hardworking bee hive! (I can’t help myself with the bee puns) My sous chef, Ula is a talented self taught vegan chef who owns her own company, shout out "Ulala Foods." Our prep cooks Jackie, Teetee and Whitney work so hard to learn new techniques and they all help prep to create the dishes we all come up for your enjoyment. We all love working together and we all love what we do for "work." We have our own dedicated drivers for delivery, Lauren, Lynette Anthony and Kristine, I have a wonderful community manager, Carla, our head of nutrition and marketing Jamie and looking forward to adding new additions by next month for the farmers market and storefront (shout out to anyone looking for part time super fun and yummy work!).

Motivational MAY

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

Hey Janes, we know that after all those April showers, you MAY be feeling hella motivated to hit your personal goals, so here is a list to help keep you DOing after the first few days of sunshine wears off.


#1: Join the G.I. Jane Challenge.

21 in 31 May Challenge...the best way to stay motivated is to stay moving.  Sign up to join our challenge in studio, so that you can help yourself and other Janes to KEEP GOING.


#2: Spring Clean your social media.  

Stay motivated in your head space too! Delete & unfollow accounts that make you feel less than or unmotivated.  *Insider tip* you don’t actually have to unfollow, but you can mute posts/stories!


#3: Find your Alter Ego.

Tap into your inner Sasha Fierce- whether it’s a mantra that you repeat each morning in the mirror, a self-care ritual, or a motivating song you play on your morning commute, manifest the most POWERFUL version of yourself each and every day.  Sometimes we don’t feel all that strong, but by putting on the costume, you can fake it till you make it!


#4: KEEP LEARNING.

Cue up your podcasts, download your e-books, and rev up your documentaries.  Knowledge is power, and one of the best ways to stay motivated at work or at home is to continue to learn!  Find motivation by learning from other BADA$$ES who’ve done it.


#5: Declutter your fridge & your gut.  

Get rid of all the crap you have in the back of your fridge that you don’t need (4 year old soy sauce much?) and while you’re at it now is the perfect time to get your gut in gear.  If you need help, Busy Bee Organics has got your back… or at least your belly. Meals full of fiber and veggies are the first step to happy poops, and everyone knows that happy poops = happy people.  

Miss Amazing X Jane DO

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

Jordan-_-Miss-Amazing-1-1.jpg

At Jane DO we always say a woman’s strongest quality is her confidence, that strength comes from within, and that DOing AMAZING things is what earns you the right to wear your CROWN proudly. When she was only thirteen, our very own Jane, Jordan Somer, came up with a concept, that later gave birth to program for girls and women with disabilities, that couldn’t be closer to our Jane DO hearts.  

download.jpeg

Miss Amazing is an organization that provides opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to test their boundaries, take on new challenges, and define themselves on their own terms, including redefining the standard of beauty.  Sounds f*cking cool right?!? Well it is, and this year Jane DO has teamed up with Miss Amazing to spread the love and celebrate women and girls who deserve to be seen and heard!

Miss Amazing uses pageantry as a mode to empower women and girls and celebrate their uniqueness and abilities.  This year, Jane DO is stepping in to lend a helping hand...or at least a helping dancing shoe. Dani and Jacey have dusted off their Rockette moves and choreographed the opening number for the Miss Amazing contestants to perform at the inaugural Miss Amazing pageant.  Watch out Radio City, there is a new show in town!

But we know that you guys want get involved too, so we have some things that you can DO to help Miss Amazing continue to be awesome!  


Community classes at jane do

Upcoming community classes will be donated to the Miss Amazing organization, so that they can continue to open doors of opportunity for women and girls with disabilities.  Check out our April and May class schedule for a community class coming to your home studio!


There is nothing plain about this AMAZING JANE!

These shirts, specifically designed for the Miss Amazing pageant, will have you rocking your Jane swag with a purpose!  TOGETHER let’s celebrate some AMAZING women and girls, and remind them to always wear their crown. Proceeds will go to the Miss Amazing Organization.

Jane's Book Club - Podcast Edition [Winter 2019]

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

Hey Janes, whether you sit in bumper to bumper traffic on the turnpike everyday, stand on the subway for 30 mins, or carpool the kids everywhere, we are sure you have a few extra minutes that you could be using to step up your podcast game.  Here are a list of some of our favorite podcasts, in case your queue needs a little refresher.

2f63f2cc02cdb6f69980e4af3a79e935c626bea560eb92fcd08660f9d3131c016121fbd6a30b18fc8f5431c000234658456b44a98cc8d3b06d1d153a18881fe0.jpeg

1. Unladylike

This podcast is the perfect mix of feminist rage and rule breaking BADA$$es.  Tackling topics from How To Fill in Love with Herpes to How to Slay Sexism like a Professional, there is nothing off limits to this smart and sassy duo.

2. Dirty John

If you like a creepy who-done-it, this LA Times, true crime podcast is for you, and don’t just take our word for it, it was so popular it was turned into a mini series on Bravo.  You have it all; love, lies, and even murder...

3. She Did It Her Way

This full- time freelancer turned business owner shares her business strategies, productivity hacks, and all things entrepreneurial in this podcast.  She also interviews other ROCKSTAR women who have taken the leap and done things their way.

4. Guys We F****d

Ok so not suitable for carpooling the kids, but this podcast by two female comedians is worth the listen.  This self proclaimed anti slut shaming podcast will have you screaming hell yeah and laughing your a$$ off at the same time.

5. How I Built This with Guy Raz

Tell her story!

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

Making HERstory. March is Women’s History Month. So this month we are celebrating US. From the suffrage movement to the Women’s March on Washington, WE have been using our STRENGTH, our VOICE, and our POWER to DO amazing things and make the world a more KICKA$$ place. Let’s take this month to celebrate all the BADA$$ women who paved the way for our achievements, and for our fellow ROCKSTAR females who are currently playing their part in making HERstory.


Dolla Dolla Bills Y’all

Hey ya know what sucks?  That women still aren’t making the same amount as men in the workforce. So, in honor of International Women’s Day, we will be discounting all of our in store merchandise.  On March 8th, all of our Jane DO gear will be 21% off. Take that gender wage gap!

Keep checking back on our instagram for the exclusive promo code!

DO what you love!

dowhatyoulove.png

By Cristin van horn, edgewater studio manager

What lights your fu*king soul on fire?  Have you done it least once this week? WHY NOT?

This month, filled with hearts and love letters, we urge you to start DOing what you love FOR YOU!  This doesn’t mean you have to quit your job, leave your husband, and move to India for a year- Eat, Pray, Love, style.  (But hey, if you want to, we are all for it!)

DOing what you love can simply mean to spend a little more time doing what lights you up!  Get back to painting. Find time to read. Dust off the piano keys or camera or hiking boots or makeup brushes or whatever!

...Not all of us have found our passion yet, and that’s OK!  DOing what you love can be as simple as finding time to share a cup of coffee with a girlfriend, or finally taking a day off.  Real life is REAL, but finding and more importantly CREATING JOY in your life right now, is just as important as paying your bills and helping your kids with their homework.

Take the time NOW to DO more of whatever it is that turns you on...no we don’t mean in the bedroom...although ‘tis the season for that too.

She's a GOALDIGGER

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

She’s a GOAL DIGGER, way over town.  Who digs on me…


Hey GOAL DIGGERS, we want you to dig on us this January!  At Jane we believe that together, not only can we set new goals for ourselves, but that we can crush the SH*T out of them.  

You are a GOAL DIGGER if you’re not afraid to put in the work to reach your full potential.

You are a GOAL DIGGER if you aren’t scared to roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty in order to get what you want.

You are a GOAL DIGGER if you don’t care about anyone else’s definition of success, because you are too busy DO-ing YOU and finding your truth!

Alone we are strong, but together we are fucking unstoppable!  Make this year YOUR year by being a GOAL DIGGER with us!

Dig deeper within yourself to set and crush your goals.  Dig deeper in the studio to gain strength and confidence.  Dig deeper at work to crash through that glass ceiling. Dig deeper in your friendships and relationships to make bigger, better, brighter memories.  

Join us for the JANEuary challenge, where TOGETHER we will inspire, motivate, challenge, and commit to being and DO-ing more in 2019.

Lessons learned dancing with the Radio City Rockettes

By Jacey & Dani, your founding sisters and a$$ kickers

Hey Janes!
Jacey and Dani here to kick off the holiday season by sharing some lessons we learned dancing with the Radio City Rockettes

Surround yourself with strong ass women
As a precision dance team, you are only as strong as your weakest link.  The same goes for the tribe you surround yourself with everyday.  Find a team of women that are encouraging, honest, and give you the confidence to keep DOing. 


Attention to detail

What distinguishes the Rockettes from other dance groups is the uniformity that comes from the attention to detail. Honing in on the small stuff can set up apart from the rest.  We all know a little bit goes a long way and refining your attention to detail can give you that extra edge.    


All that planning and shit stills goes wrong 
Despite striving for perfection, the most memorable moments were the ones when things unexpectedly went wrong.  Whether it was a shoe flying off during a kick line or part of the set getting stuck off stage, these moments are the ones we still talk about today.  Embrace the imperfections life throws at you and roll with the unexpected cards you are handed.

Happy Holidays!
Jacey & Dani

POWER POSE

girls.jpg

Jane DO encourages women to stand together in their POWER POSE. Stand beside each other to empower one another, behind each other to support one another, and when needed, in front of each other to guide one another. We know that together, the strength of women is UNBREAKABLE. This is why we #POWERPOSE 👑💪🏼

Check out some of our Janes in their best #POWERPOSE!


Say no to the sorority squat!

Be sure to show us your #powerpose! Tag us @janedo and use the hashtag #WEAREJANE so we can see it! We will be reposting our faves every week!

Let's Hear it For the Boys

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager

mustache.png

As the saying goes, “a man is only as strong as the woman who stands behind him.” Here at Jane, we prefer to think that we are standing right next to the men in our lives, to support them as much as they support us. So this month, LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS!

As you may know, this month has begun to align with a movement surrounding men’s health awareness and cancer prevention.  You may have heard of No-Shave November, where men are encouraged to showcase their mustaches for a good cause. Movember is the leading charity dedicated to changing men’s health, including prostate and testicular cancer awareness and prevention, mental health, and suicide prevention among men.  Basically Movember is super cool and Jane thinks they are awesome. Since we are boy crazy, we wanted to team up with them.

Jane is excited to share with you our Jane DUDE campaign.  Jane DUDE is our exclusive line of men’s apparel, for the Jane DUDEs in our lives.  


But who is Jane DUDE?

The men who love us, the men who challenge us, and the brave men who work out right beside us are all Jane DUDE. A man who knows that supporting the women in his office only elevates his team, is a Jane DUDE.  A partner who admires your drive and passion at home and also at work is a Jane DUDE. A father/brother/best friend who is there to help you anytime you need him, from apartment moves to career moves is a Jane DUDE.  

Snag our custom Jane DUDE t-shirt for the men in your life this month and all proceeds go to the Movember foundation.  Not only will your dude be rocking some cool duds and making a difference while DO-ing it, he will be reminded that he is only as strong as the badass women by his side.    



Live Your Breast Life

By Cristin Van Horn, Edgewater Studio Manager


Hey Janes, this month’s newsletter is about your GIRLS… the ones in your sports bra.  Knockers, tatas, jugs, or bee stings, we are celebrating your breasts this month!

October is breast cancer awareness month, so get comfortable with your girls!  And while breast cancer cannot yet be prevented, early detection can save your life.  So, if you don’t give yourself breast exams yet...what are you waiting for?? Pour yourself a glass of wine and get to groping.  If you’re not quite sure the best way to self exam, just check out the guide in all our Jane DO showers! Doctors recommend giving yourself a quick check at least once a month, to really get to know your body, that way you can recognize any changes early on.  Mammograms can detect tumors even before you can feel them, so if you have concerns, or are over 40 you should be getting a yearly test.

But this month is about more than just breast exams and an excuse to wear pink, it’s about body awareness, taking charge of your feminine health, and celebrating your sisters.  October is filled with walks, marathons, and gatherings to support and uplift cancer survivors, their families, friends, and advocates. And shouldn’t we all be advocates for our bodies and boobies!  

So grab your girls (the ones down your shirt and in your circle) and get to walking, talking, and celebrating your health, happiness, and strength this October.

Want to get involved? Jane DO will be leading the warm up for the entire Hudson County walk which will be taking place on October 28th at 10am in Lincoln Park. If you want to join our team for the Making Strides against Breast Cancer walk, sign up here. Create a login, join the walk, and search “Jane DO” under teams. We hope to see you there!

We are also selling tanks and a portion of sales will go to our team fundraiser for the Making Strides Walk! Get yours here.
