The catalyst for Jelly's fitness journey? A challenge. After being dared to tackle a 5K run by none other than comedic duo Bert Kreischer and Tom Segura, Jelly Roll didn't back down. Instead, he embraced the opportunity, publicly committing himself to conquer the 3.1-mile race. While he may have stopped short of promising to run the event, his dedication to the challenge was clear from the start.

"I don't know if 'running' is going to be the word, but I'm definitely going to get the 3.1 miles done — probably a brisk power walk," he said at the time of the challenge. "My goal is to be able to do a 15-minute mile." Fellow country star ERNEST chimed in with support, so did Zach Bryan commenting "We’re all here with you brother! If I’m not playing I’ll be there!"

In the weeks leading up to the 2 Bears 5K at the iconic Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on May 7, Jelly Roll has been sweating it out, putting in the hard work to transform his physical fitness. And the results are not only visible but palpable. With each step forward on his fitness journey, Jelly Roll is not just shedding pounds but also gaining confidence and vitality.

The transformation was evident when Jelly Roll stepped onto the red carpet at the 2024 CMT Awards. Radiating confidence and happiness, he stood tall, a testament to his commitment to personal growth and self-improvement. But Jelly's journey isn't just about physical appearance; it's about embracing a healthier lifestyle and setting an example for fans and peers alike.

"I'm probably down 70-something pounds," Jelly, told PEOPLE. "I've been really kicking ass, man. I'm doing two to three miles a day, four to six days a week. I'm doing 20 to 30 minutes in the sauna, six minutes in a cold plunge every day. I'm eating healthy right now."

This year has already been one of triumphs for Jelly Roll. With three iHeartRadio Music Awards and two CMT Music Awards under his belt, he's proven that talent knows no bounds. And now, as he embarks on his first-ever four ACM Award nominations, the stage is set for yet another milestone in his career.

But Jelly Roll isn't stopping there. Far from it. With summer music festivals on the horizon and the anticipation building for his upcoming Beautifully Broken Tour, he's gearing up for a whirlwind of performances and unforgettable moments. And through it all, his commitment to health and wellness remains unwavering. We could all learn a thing for two about perseverance from Jelly!
