FAQ

Stroller Strides

Is this just an exercise group of moms that get together to walk?

I love this question. The answer is NO! These classes are no walk in the park... In just one hour you will get a complete head to toe workout that will have you feeling energized and looking fit! Classes are designed for ALL different fitness levels and are taught by certified instructors who are also moms. During our stations, we use resistance bands, open fields for drills or obstacles, benches or steps and anything in the environment to give you a great workout! Don't be surprised if you find yourself saying words like "burpee" or "plank" before long!

Can I join Stroller Strides if I am pregnant?

YES, YES, YES! We encourage expectant moms to continue to exercise through their pregnancy unless their doctor has advised otherwise. Instructors are trained in both pre and post natal fitness and follow the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists guidelines. We can modify any exercise that poses an issue as you progress through your pregnancy. Exercise during pregnancy helps improve or increase:

  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Muscular strength/endurance
  • Energy levels
  • Higher fatigue threshold
  • Posture and biomechanics
  • Circulation
  • Self-esteem, sense of well-being
  • Recovery time

What do I need to bring to class?

Other than you, your baby, and your stroller, we suggest wearing comfortable exercise clothes and athletic shoes. Please bring plenty of water and a towel or yoga mat for our ground exercises. For outdoor classes please bring a hat and/or sunblock. Don't forget to pack baby some snacks or stroller toys for the ride too!

Do I need a jogger stroller?

NO! While we are BOB jogger fanatics, just about any stroller will do so long as it's not prone to tipping; we don't recommend umbrella strollers since they are not very maneuverable. Our mommies have mastered classes with snap-n-go's and other travel systems!

How old does my baby have to be?

You must wait until until your baby is at least 6 weeks of age to begin class. Children can join for classes up to any age as long as they still enjoy a ride in the stroller and can be safely buckled in. If you are newly postpartum, always get your doctor's permission before starting this or any other kind of exercise program.

What do I do if my baby gets fussy during class?

Our first priority during Stroller Strides classes is the happiness of your baby. Tend to your baby first. We stop every few minutes for body toning, so you can always catch up with us if you get behind and someone will always stay with you to keep you company. Our instructors will do their very best to make the class enjoyable for both you and your baby!

What's our Rainy Day Plan?

We have indoor back up classes when the weather does not allow us to be outdoors. Please check our social link to see if we've moved indoors for the day.

How long are the workouts?

The workouts are 1-hour unless otherwise noted. The class is usually set up with a 5-minute warm up followed by a 45-minute full body workout with the stroller that includes power walking or running, cardio blasts and body toning stations. The last 10 minutes is for abs and stretching.

How do I enroll?

Click on "LOCATIONS". Click on the date that you would like to attend and click "Enroll". You will be redirected to a registration page.

If you have not enrolled prior to class or signed the class waiver electronically, you will be able to do so on location before class.

What if I enrolled and didn’t make it to class?

Class attendance is recorded by the instructor at each class and even if you enrolled, unless you are present you will not be counted. This means that if you are a class pass holder, you will not be charged for that class.

Body Back FAQ

What makes Body Back and the Fit4Mom Programs different from the gym?

Body Back so much more than just a workout! We are a community of Moms where you will find support, encouragement, camaraderie and lifelong friendships. Through education, we help you to create a healthier home and more active lifestyle for your family. We believe you should be empowered and encouraged to push past your perceived limits and find inner strength while building physical strength. We strive to build you up and put you first to create your BEST YOU.

Do I need to Pre-Register or can I just show up?

For Body Back Sessions, you must pre-register to ensure your spot in the class. Body Back sessions sell out quickly, so you want to hold your spot by registering early.

What if I am completely out of shape?

We deliver a workout appropriate to any fitness level, using high-intensity interval training. Commitment and positivity are all you need to challenge the body you bring to class. You might not be able to do every single thing at your first class, by the end of your 8-week session, you will.

What is high intensity interval training (HIIT)?

The workouts vary each week and involve a variety of equipment or bodyweight exercises. Workouts are designed by our certified Body Back instructors to work your total body, promote maximum metabolic burn, and build strength and skill.

Can I participate in Body Back if I am pregnant?

No. This workout is not intended for pre-natal exercise and we do not recommend following the meal plans during pregnancy. If you become pregnant during the course of your Body Back session, please notify your instructor. We offer Stroller Strides as appropriate pre-natal exercise programs.

What do I bring to class?

You will need a positive attitude, yoga mat or towel, and plenty of water. We will provide you with a red resistance band on the first night that you should bring to subsequent classes as well.
