J is for Jeep Jogging Stroller Review and Giveaway

As you may know, I’ve been on a journey to get healthy and drop some pounds. With that, I’ve been jogging about a mile and a half a day — I know right? I never thought I’d be able to do that!

The problem, however, is that I have three kids. Well, they’re not a problem, but how is a work at home mom supposed to get her exercise in when all she has is a normal walking stroller?

Answer: Get a J is for Jeep jogging stroller. Seriously, this thing is AWESOME.  Check this:

This bad boy is loaded with features:

I can’t even begin to tell you how many things I love about this stroller. One of my personal favorites is the Smart Handle — my husband can easily pop the handle bar up so that it’s comfortable for him to push. I really love how smooth the stroller pushes. With it’s air inflated tires and suspension system, it can handle bumps, rocks, and rough terrain without disturbing my kid too much.


The storage basket is plenty big, and I love that you can access it from the front or back of the stroller. The seat reclines nicely, and is able to accommodate many different infant car seats, so even with teeny tiny little ones, you can get out there and get your fitness on! My only qualm is that the seat has to be reclined in order to fold the stroller. Kind of annoying, but not a deal breaker by any means! It does have a free-stand fold, which almost makes up for it ;).

The iBaby sound system is really neat, although it can be a little crackly at times. You just gotta make sure the cord is securely pushed into your iPhone or iPod, and you’re good to go! The cup holders are perfect for stashing my water so I can re-hydrate mid-run.

Overall, this jogging stroller is really fantastic! On a scale of 1-10, I give it a 9 (only knocked down because of the folding issue).  You can purchase the J is for Jeep Jogging Stroller for $299.99 at Buy Buy Baby.

Ready for this, y’all? I’m gonna give one away. You read that right. You want to win a $299 jogger? You bet your toned buns you do. Enter below!

    I’d like to lose at least 10 pounds and get to my healthy pre baby weight while maintaining healthy habits for the whole family.

  2. Ashley B. says

    Well, I lost 20 pounds!…and then got pregnant! So basically get back to my pre-pregnancy weight and work on running that 10k!

    I would like to lose 35lbs & fit back into the jeans I had prior to having my 3yr old son. It seems impossible! (although, I know it isn’t ;) Just so much harder for me to lose weight when I have a family of men to cook for. I will get there… this would help tremendously! We had a Jeep and LOVED it, but the back wheels won’t retain any air after spending the winter in the unfurnished basement. Very bummed about it because A) it was expensive & B) it is a GREAT stroller!
    Thanks so much for this great giveaway opportunity! <3

    Hiya doll :)
    Just wanted to let you know that the link for the Pinterest follow entry for you isn’t coming up correct. I realized that it is because the link is entered as http://pinterest.com/freckleberry.com instead of http://pinterest.com/freckleberry

    The latter one works perfectly. Just an FYI in case you want to fix it up, or in case anyone else might be having issues with it & can’t figure out how to get around the user error page :)

    Thanks! <3

  6. says

    I would like to lose weight but hoping to win for my niece due beginning of September and I know most of us who has a baby wants to lose immediately after. I think this will help her out

  7. Sandy VanHoey says

    Said my other one didn’t go through so we’ll try again. Hoping to win for my niece, due any day now and I know like most of us, we all want to shed some pounds after having our baby

  8. Alex Liz Robinson says

    My goal is to be able to work out outside. I do 6-7 miles on the treadmill every weekday and I would love to be able to do that outside. The treadmill can get very boring. I also want to tone my muscles.

  9. Sarah Owens says

    My goals are to Lose 30 pounds, get healthy before baby #2, look good for my husband, and just to feel good about my appearance again. I want to be able to keep up with my toddler, and stop spending so much time sitting on the couch.

  10. says

    get back to my pre-3 kids weight! I have a pair of jeans that I kept from when the hubs & I were dating & I would LOVE to fit into them again!

  11. says

    I’d love to lose all the baby weight I gained while pregnant with my two little angels. Buying a good jogging stroller is expensive and its hard to go thru all the choices and figure out which is the best option.

  12. Katie Smith Patti says

    I’d love to lose the rest of the baby weight I gained with my son and get back into shape to run a 5K! I hope to do all of this before trying to conceive baby #2! :)

  13. Katie Rose says

    Currently it is to not gain too much weight this pregnancy…too bad I’m not very successful at that yet, sigh.

  14. Tarah says

    I’m due with #2 (and our last) child in two weeks. Once given the all clear from the doctor, I want to try the Couch to 5K. I figure I can take DS#1 with me when I run so I get some exercise time in & some one on one time with my boy.

  15. Shelley Cameron says

    I’d like to run in a race with an average of a 10 minute mile — probably a 5k to start, but I’ll work up to longer distances. My husband did a half-marathon recently and I’d love to join him! It’s a lofty goal for me, but I’m working on it!

  16. Lisa Ellis says

    my fitness goal is to actually get moving! ha ha. I’m 6 mths pregnant so right now i don’t have a goal but after i have the baby, it will be to lose the baby weight!

  17. Nicole T says

    My husband is deployed and I just had baby #2 almost 5 months ago so I really want to get off 10 pounds before he gets home!!

  18. Heather Bain says

    I have lost about 20lbs and I have gotten stuck, I need to lose at least 40 to 50 more and get in shape. This would be great to have since the stroller I have now I’ve had since 2007 and is not a jogging stroller.

  19. Jackie S. says

    I’d like to lose my chubby belly from my most recent baby…and build some leg muscles… and be able to walk up two flights of stairs without losing my breath!

  20. kathy d says

    I would love to loose 25 pounds but I bake almost every day so it is hard to loose when you have baked goods sitting around or the smell in your house.

  21. Melissa Tippie says

    I am a grandma of 6, two of which come here for day care operated by our live in daughter, the stroller would be helpful to have here for the little guy. This stroller would be for my daughter who had a little guy late last fall who was 3 months premature and under 2lbs. Mommy was so stressed and very immobile sitting at the hospital for months and not eating the healthiest diet…gaining 30 lbs after his birth, added to the “baby weight” too. She did not get a stroller because she was told the baby was not allowed out in public places like schools, stores, parks, etc due to his underdeveloped immune system. He FINALLY got clearance recently to get out and about and she is ready to walk with him and hit the awesome park in their town that has trails. She is trying so hard, works full time and also a part time job, besides taking nursing classes to catch up on financial catastrophe this birth cost. She is so determined to bring her body back to healthy and be satisfied with herself once again. Stress is so NOT conducive for getting your body “back” after baby. I know walking and running is GREAT for it, so this Jeep stroller would be an amazing gift for her!

  22. jenny says

    I need to lose 10 pounds after I am done breast feeding and hopefully keep it off by walking everyday and doing my workout 3-5 days a week!

  23. Erika says

    I need to lose 10 pounds when I am done breast feeding and keep if off by walking everyday and working out 3-5 days a week!

  24. says

    For the past nine months I have been dedicated to getting into the best shape I can. Our first granddaughter was born on July 19th, 2 short hours before my 50th birthday. This has been such a transitional year for me, turning 50…becoming a grandma…realizing that the past 10 years have flown by like a day and knowing that if I don’t get in shape now, it may never happen again. I have been looking at jogging strollers ever since my son asked me if I would be able to babysit for them after my daughter-in-law went back to work. Of course I said yes, but I certainly don’t want to stop working out, hence the need for a jogging stroller. I’m excited about the giveaway! Good luck to everyone who enters. :)

  25. Molly Bussler says

    Recently had my first baby, and I would love to get back into shape…not really sure if I was in shape before? lol

  26. Michele Pineda says

    not sure what happened but the info carried down in name/email from Molly Bussler my own comment was : I have a lot of weight to lose, but I am going to start small by saying 25 more pounds to go…

  27. Ebbie says

    I just found out that I am expecting and would love to maintain a healthy weight during the rest of the pregnancy and also be able to come back to my healthy size after the baby is born.

  28. says

    I am ready to get my act together and be the role model to my family that I need to be!! Loosing weight and getting fit will just be a bonus! (a VERY VERY GREAT bonus!!)

  29. tracey berthiaume says

    this would be for my niece, she is due 9/23. she is on the heavy side and will have quite a few pounds to lose.

  30. Nicole says

    I’ve got many fitness goals, but my main one is to lose the weight I’ve put on this past year :/ and then go from there to becoming fit and healthy!

  31. says

    My fitness goal is, actually not to lose weight, but to gain about 15 lbs. I am underweight
    and have started eating 2200 calories a day to achieve my goal, because I also excersice
    a few times a week.

  32. Courtney says

    I want to get back to my wedding weight. I’ve gained way too much since getting married and having a baby.

  33. MaryAnna Mulcare says

    Hoping to keep weight gain to a minimum during this pregnancy and go back to pre-baby weight within 2 months after baby is born:) I did it before and lost an addition 20lbs so I’m hoping to be able to once the new baby arrives.

  34. Jennifer C says

    My fitness goal is to continue carving out a waistline as well as becoming good enough with my dancing that I will be able to perform better in front of a crowd.

  35. Michelle Stice says

    My goal is to lose weight, feel better, look better, be healthier, and help my family be healthier. A 5K would be great also.

  36. Carie Austin says

    I started my weight-loss journey on June 1st this year and I have lost 30 lbs so far! By doing Zumba and running the Couch-to-5K running plan. Now that I finished the program and am on my own, I have big goals in mind! I have my first 5K in October, I will be running the DAM to DAM in Iowa in June 2013, and I want to run a marathon. I would love to run the Boston marathon, just to run it, not to race in it! (Obviously!) But it has always been a dream of mine to run the Boston marathon!

  37. Yesenia says

    For me it is not about the weight but rather to work up to a good routine to stay fit and hopefully healthy.

  38. Kyle Raulerson says

    Very nice stroller. I could really use it. Expecting a newborn in several months, and it’s our first child. Super excited of the memories to be had in the future

  39. Doreen Spitzer-Lemire says

    lose weight to where my djd in my feet and knees isn’t so bad… horrible having this disease since I was 34 that I am aware of especially since it normally doesn’t hit until late 50’s early 60’s :(

  40. Doreen Spitzer-Lemire says

    I tried to follow Kolcraft but for some reason it keeps popping back off :( I was able to follow the rest.

  41. ErinK. says

  42. Meghan C says

    I am at a healthy weight, but I do have some belly flab left over that I would like to get rid of. You know, so we can all see that 6-pack underneath ;)

  43. Allison B. says

    My goal is to get back to my high school weight…I realize I’m a bit crazy but hey we should dream big, right?! :)

  44. Brooke says

  45. says

    I would love to lose 30lbs and get into a good walking/outdoor excercise routine. :) I am a stay at home mommy and MaryKay consultant that just started her business. I could use the help of a new stroller for my little girl, so I would look forward to taking her with me instead of dreading the use of my stroller. :) Thank you!

  48. Adam Kasnow says

    This would be more so for my wife, so she can lose the pounds after the baby arrives… but it should help me shed a few too if I go out with them. 10lbs would be good.
