Since 2001, Stroller Strides' fitness professionals and buggy-bandying workouts have helped mothers to overcome the struggles of staying in shape while caring for a wee one. Specially trained instructors helm a series of 60-minute classes, which consist of a warm-up, a power walk, and interval stations where limbs stretch resistance tubes in body-toning drills. Energizing jaunts often utilize hills, benches, and other environmental facets to augment maneuvers. Throughout the routine, engaging songs and activities keep children from growing overly fussy or pranking classmates by tossing banana peels in front of their buggies.
Inside each Sky Zone location, a wall-to-wall half-pipe made entirely of trampolines gives children and adults a venue where they can safely hop, bounce, and somersault to their hearts' content. The vast, taut, springy flooring doesn't end at the walls, but instead the trampolines continue upward to form angles perfect for crawling up, springing off, or sliding down. Visitors can meander along the bounceable terrain in the open trampoline arena, throw themselves into giant foam pits, or sharpen their competitive edges in trampoline-assisted sports such as dodgeball. SkyBurn classes, which have been featured on The Doctors, merge gravity-defying fun with fitness during instructor-led workouts that include calisthenics, core exercises, and strength-building aerobics to help guests shed calories without hurting their joints or taking a wrong turn on a treadmill.

Over the past 20-plus years, he’s wrestled, played semipro football, and developed a specialty for sports-performance training.
