How to Lose Over 100 Pounds With Your Kid's Stroller
If your kids' busy schedules or family responsibilities are getting in the way of your fitness routine, look no further for a solution. You can direct your gratitude to Fit4Mom a fitness studio that offers classes all over the country that use your child's stroller for cardio and strength-training workout routines (yes, you should keep the kiddo in the seat).
Sign up for Stroller Strides and you'll get 60 minutes of power walking and toning exercises. Stroller Barre, on the other hand, incorporates traditional Pilates, yoga, and barre exercises, but instead of doing them on, well, a barre, you get to hang onto a stroller. And if you're looking to get in shape before labor, you can always opt for one of the Fit4Baby classes (and the online forum that connects moms) to try and make the whole experience slightly less painful.
And while most moms are hopping on the trend to get back in shape, score a mental break, or find new friends, a few are netting extra health benefits. Crystal Banda, a member at a Las Vegas location, told the Review Journal that it helped her work through her postpartum depression—and lose 102 pounds. If that's not proof the program could work well, we don't know what is.
So step away from Dora the Explorer—for your sanity—and connect with other moms that know the struggle. We bet you'll feel better once you do.
