Working out makes you feel great but finding the time while still being there for your baby is tough! Enter…. Fit4Mom Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre classes where your baby is part of the class! I discovered Stroller Strides just before I had my son when searching for mom’s groups. Since I had always taught exercise classes, and Fit4Mom promises classes that are “Fitness for Mom, Fun for Baby,” it sounded perfect, and it was! I have been attending and teaching Stroller Strides for a little over a year and love it!
So What ARE Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre?
I have to admit it. First, I assumed the class entailed moms simply walking with their babies in tow. Still, in actuality, the classes are a fantastic combination of cardio and strength intervals with varying levels that allow the participants (new moms, long time moms, pregnant moms, and often their spouses, partners, and family members as well) to work at the level that is right for them. During the workout, the moms sing, play games (think Where is Thumbkin, This Little Piggy), and more to make it fun for the kids (and it makes the time fly for the moms, too!). Fit4Mom also has playgroups after many of the classes, which makes it a great way to meet other moms and for the kids to make new friends too!
Who is it for?
All moms of stroller age children. Instructors are trained to teach moms of all different fitness levels and provide modifications whether you are just getting back into working out, pregnant, or looking for a challenge.
Where can I find a class?
