Exercise for new Mothers - Stroller Strides

The American Woman has finally realised what Indian Women always knew. Having a baby is a full time job & exercise routine.

Tired of feeling guilty of leaving your child at a creche while going to the gym for a workout ?
An enterprising young mother in the US, has formulated an exercise plan, where young mothers with New Borns meet up with their children in strollers and take a joint walk and short breaks to develop other muscles.

What is Stroller Strides?
Stroller Strides is a total fitness program for new moms that they can do with their babies. It includes Power Walking and intervals of body toning using exercise tubing and the stroller. Taught by nationally certified instructors, it's a great workout for any level of exerciser. Please get doctor's permission before starting this or any other exercise.

What do I need?
You, your baby and the stroller. Just about any kind of stroller will do so long as it's not prone to tipping. We also suggest you bring WATER, a hat or sunblock for both you and your baby, and a towel or mat for our ground exercises.

What can I expect when we meet?
Each class consists of a warm up, a power walk and "stations" where we do a variety of body toning exercises. We use exercise tubing (which we provide you with), the stroller and the outdoor environment to create our gym. If your baby is fussy, we will show you exercises that you can do with your baby.

So guess, nani & Dadi have always known best !!!
