In celebration of our 1 year anniversary, we wanted to start a series of FIT4MOM Mythbusters that will cover a variety of topics. We hope you enjoy the first of our mythbusters as written by Amy Bernstein. Amy is a former client turned FIT4MOM instructor. Enjoy!
Mythbuster #1: I don’t have the right stroller for Stroller Strides
When I first heard of Stroller Strides, I thought, “Strides means running. I don’t have a jogging stroller. And even if I did, my baby is too small for one.”
About a month later, I was desperate for a workout and reluctant to leave my baby at a gym daycare. So I clicked my baby’s car seat into a stroller frame and gamely headed to my first Stroller Strides class, hoping we wouldn’t look out of place among the rugged Bobs.
I was happily surprised to find strollers of every kind and moms with babies of all ages. My three-month-old wasn’t even the youngest there.
Best of all, the workout didn’t require running. Sometimes we exercised in front of our strollers, entertaining our babies with our movements and some songs. Sometimes we moved in a circle around the strollers, socializing with each other’s curious babies. And sometimes we pushed our strollers while power walking or doing walking lunges.
I went to my first class nervous that I wouldn’t fit in—that me and my little stroller would be left behind by a bunch of fast, super fit moms pushing big-wheeled strollers. What I found was a community of moms feeling just like I did—nervous about adjusting to new lives, new bodies, and new schedules. And while the strollers ran the gamut from clip-in frames to futuristic modular systems, and, yes, big-wheeled Bobs, we all had one thing in common: We were there to seize an hour for our own health.
