Parenting can be a workout, especially for mothers of twins or caretakers who insist upon garbing their wee-ones in titanium diapers and sandbag booties. Hoist a youngster into higher health with today's Groupon: for $20, you get six StrollFit classes at Baby Boot Camp (a $63 value). Classes are held outdoors, weather permitting, at St. Louis Mills in Hazelwood.
Fitness guru Kristen Horler developed Baby Boot Camp after realizing the lack of appropriate prenatal and postnatal training programs. The stroller-based fitness classes are designed to help moms get fit in a supportive and empathetic environment, combining strength-training exercises, cardiovascular drills, Pilates, yoga, and ab work. Eliminating the need for a babysitter and facilitating familial bonding, students are encouraged to bring along their new bundle and even use the stroller as a resistance tool. Alternatively, tykes uninterested in finding their inner Fonda can frolic in the St. Louis Mills play area while moms and newborns feel the burn. To ensure utmost safety, all instructors are highly trained and certified, and the boot camp's structure abides by the guidelines of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Council on Exercise.
Baby Boot Camp's StrollFit Classes are currently scheduled to fit the routine and energizing needs of morning go-getters, with one-hour sessions held Monday, Thursday, and Saturday from 9:20–10:20 a.m.
