What You'll Get
Though new babies make it difficult to maintain a trim physique, the hassle of their care is offset by wide smiles, buoyant giggles, and savvy investment advice. Work out alongside bundles of joy with today's Groupon: for $18, you get five classes (a $60 value) at Stroller Strides, a fitness program for new mothers.
Stroller Strides' fitness professionals employ creative exercise regimens to aid new mothers in overcoming the struggles of staying in shape while caring for a wee one. All you need to get started is you, your baby, and a stroller. The 60-minute classes, taught by specially trained instructors, usually take place outdoors and consist of a warm-up, a buggy-bandying power walk, and interval stations where participants do a variety of body-toning exercises. Instructors provide everyone with exercise tubing and, in the event of a fussy-baby episode, can either provide physical exercises you can do with your baby or calculus exercises to occupy your baby's mind.
In addition to providing a fun exercise regimen that takes babies into consideration, Stroller Strides is a venue for new mothers to interact and socialize. Commiserate over shared difficulties and take joy in each other's successes, such as a baby’s first steps, or the invention of a flying stroller. A positive environment that encourages return visits is a key factor in sticking to a physical-fitness routine. Surrounded by friendly instructors, mom peers, and a teeming hoard of adorable infants, a Stroller Strides class creates a positive, encouraging environment for re-obtaining a pre-baby physique.
Stroller Strides recommends waiting until a newborn is at least 6 weeks old before beginning classes, and new mothers should get their doctor's permission before beginning any exercise program. Call ahead to schedule your classes.
