Our Journey

Getting Started

We are going to guess that you haven't heard of our brand and that's because we are just getting started.

A few years ago we had an idea and that was to help people get fit from anywhere.

But the main issue was all of the pointless equipment that was getting tossed and scattered around the house. Anthony wanted to solve that for his wife - Janie. So the goal was to create an all-in-one solution utilizing her favorite piece of equipment... the yoga mat.

Thanks to our Kickstarter community and getting contacted by Shark Tank, we decided to bring the Flobody Gym to life.

In 2021, we were finally granted a full utility patent!

Family owned brand and 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."


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."
