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 $10, you get a five-class pass at Stroller Strides, a fitness program for new mothers located on Valley View Boulevard (a $25 value).
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 are taught by certified instructors and consist of a warm-up, a buggy-bandying power walk, and interval stations where participants do a variety of body-toning exercises. In the event of a fussy-baby episode, instructors can provide physical exercises you can do with your baby or calculus exercises to occupy your baby's mind. Stroller Strides also offers Fit4Baby prenatal classes and a Body Back series that helps moms reobtain a prebaby physique.
In addition to providing a fun exercise regimen that takes babies into consideration, Stroller Strides provides a supportive environment 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 in which to attain the crown of kid-accompanied fitness.
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. Check online for the most up-to-date class schedule, and call ahead to schedule your classes.
