You, your child(ren) and the stroller. Any kind of stroller will work, just as long as it's not prone to tipping and your child can be safely buckled in. No umbrella strollers, please. We suggest athletic shoes, plenty of water, a towel/yoga mat for ab work and stretching, sunscreen/hats for you and your baby (even on foggy days!), and any comfort objects/toys/blankets/snacks should your little one(s) need them.
Stroller Strides is a total fitness program that moms can do with their babies and young child(ren). Classes are 1 hour in length and include power walking (some moms like to jog/run), strength and body toning intervals (using tubing that we provide), and end with abdominal work and stretching. We incorporate interaction with your child through songs, counting, learning ABC's, and color recognition. This way the children are entertained while we get our workout!
You can come to any class! Your first week is FREE. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of any class (9:00am) to get settled and signed in for class. To register for your first class, visit: www.madison-al.fit4mom.com
We encourage expectant moms to continue to exercise through their pregnancy as long as everything has been OK'd by their physician. Please tell our instructors that you are pregnant. Our instructors are certified in both pre and post natal fitness and follow the ACOG guidelines. We can modify any exercise as you progress through your pregnancy. Don't wait til the little one is born, join us today!
If you recently gave birth to your little one, we require that you wait to attend Stroller Strides classes until your physician clears you for exercise, usually 6-8 weeks post partum. ALWAYS get your doctor's permission before starting this or any other kind of exercise program.
