Having a baby often limits parents' ability to take part in the hobbies they once loved, such as working out or sleeping in empty bassinets. Set aside some you time with today's Groupon: for $35, you get one month of unlimited mom-and-baby fitness classes and waived registration fees at Stroller Strides (a $125 value). This Groupon is valid at the following Stroller Strides locations: Porter Ranch; Woodland Hills, West Hills, and Canoga Park; Calabasas and Encino; Santa Clarita; and Sherman Oaks and Studio City.
All classes must be redeemed at the same location.
Stroller Strides puts an athletic twist on quality time, as baby-filled strollers serve as resistance during one-hour cardio and toning classes. Certified instructors corral gaggles of moms after they wheel buggies to a designated outdoor meeting spot, assembling at least 15 minutes prior to a class's start time for a short warm-up. From there, teachers lead students and their precious cargo across parks as they power-walk their way to cardiovascular health and wield provided exercise tubing, the stroller itself, or diaper bags filled with bronzed booties for body toning. Stroller Strides suggests toting babies that are at least six weeks old but welcomes kids of any age that enjoy carriage-riding to accompany their mom.
As their parents take part in a health-centric activity, little ones also benefit from the social aspect of spending time with other children that share a similar interest in hedge-fund investments. Check each location's website for a list of class times as well as meeting spots.
