What You'll Get
Pram up slacking muscles with today's side deal: for $18, you get five classes (a $60 value) at Stroller Strides, a fitness program for new mothers. Moms can work out at one of the following locations in St. Louis and West County:
- Schroeder Park in Manchester, with West County Mall as an alternate rain location
- Forest Park near the St. Louis Art Museum, with an alternate rain location at the St. Louis Galleria Mall
Getting in shape after giving birth can be difficult; taking care of the baby takes a lot of time and leaves bodies weary and sapped of energy. Stroller Strides understands these common struggles and has designed an exercise regimen with new mothers in mind. 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, will show you exercises you can do with your baby.
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. 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 babies, a Stroller Strides class creates a positive, encouraging environment for re-obtaining a pre-baby physique.
New customers only. Stroller Strides recommends waiting until a newborn is at least six weeks old before beginning classes. New mothers should get a doctor's permission before beginning any exercise program. Call ahead to schedule your classes.
Although the St. Louis Stroller Strides has few reviews, it was featured on Fox2 News.
