Our Journey

Getting Started

We launched the Flobody Gym officially in 2019. Thanks to our Kickstarter community, we were fully funded and started delivering orders in 2020.

In 2021, we were granted a full utility patent!

We are a family-owned brand located near Des Moines, IA.

As seen in

Health Magazine

"What looks like a rolled-up Yoga mat turns into a complete yet compact portable gym."

Well and Good

"The Flobody Gym is essentially a yoga mat with about a dozen hidden bonuses. It's kind of like Mary Poppins' magic bag, but better."

Real Simple

"The Flobody Gym is an all-in-one pilates kit that has everything you need to turn your living room into your own personal pilates studio."


Heather Muse, Reviewed’s audience development director, swears by it. “I've lost 20 pounds since I got one back in August,” she says. “It's the only fitness program I've been following. The videos from the founder are hilarious because she's so goofy yet inspiring."
