Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, work-at-home mom or working mom, there are many ways to fit in a daily exercise routine.
Not only can you fit in your daily dose of exercise and spend time with your baby, you can interact and socialize with other moms, too! Group classes like Stroller Strides are tailored around the needs of moms and babies but keep fitness a priority.
Most gyms offer childcare for an additional monthly cost. Some yoga, pilates and dance studios also offer childcare, so don’t rule those out before checking into them.
When looking at a gym or studio childcare, ask these questions before committing.
Get creative! You can mix up your options to cut down on costs and give your baby — and you — a change of scenery each week.
If you have an infant, try scheduling your walk during nap time. If you live within walking distance of your local grocery store, bank, or dry cleaners try walking instead of driving. Sometimes babies prefer the change of scenery and fresh air they get from a walk rather than getting in and out of the car multiple times.
Walking or jogging is always better with a stroller meant for higher impact strolling. By investing in a good all-terrain stroller, your time outdoors will become more enjoyable for both your child and you.
If you are a runner or plan to run with your baby, you will need a running stroller. Most all-terrain strollers are not built for runners so check before you buy a "jogging stroller."
When you get out and exercise with your baby in tow, you’re automatically setting a good example for your child. If you start this routine when your baby is young, he or she will learn to love the stroller, the outdoors and grow up knowing the importance — and routine — of physical activity.
