WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

  • water
  • sunblock (if outdoors)
  • yoga mat or towel for abdominal exercises
  • baby essentials (toys, books, snacks, etc)
  • stroller (any type is fine)
  • eat a healthy breakfast or light snack before coming to class - this is very important if you are a nursing mother!
  • consider bringing a post-class snack with you, especially if you plan to stick around after class

WHAT IF MY BABY IS FUSSY?

Our first priority is the happiness of your baby. Because we stop in regular intervals for body toning, you can always catch up with us if you fall behind. If your baby ever fusses so much that you miss class, we will be happy to credit you another class. Our instructors will do their very best to make class enjoyable. Don't be discouraged if your child has a rough day here and there - we've all been there! Once you both fall into a routine it becomes easier, I PROMISE!

WHAT TYPE OF STROLLER DO I NEED?

You don't need a jogging stroller to participate in Stroller Strides. Any stroller that is easy to maneuver, easy to power walk with and is comfortable and secure for your baby is fine. Double strollers are allowed too.

WHAT IS GOOD POSTURE WHEN WALKING WITH A STROLLER?

As you walk, lead with your chest with your shoulders pulled back and down. Wrists should remain in neutral alignment and keep your hips close to your stroller. If you choose to run, it is good form to guide the stroller with one hand, leaving the other arm free to swing by your side.

WHAT ABOUT SHARING THE ROAD?

When we are outdoors, we share the road with many walkers, runners, bicyclists, etc. Please be courteous by keeping to the right and passing on the left. Use caution and be aware of your surroundings near any streets.

DO THE CHILDREN NEED TO STAY IN THE STROLLER?

Yes! We know your kids often want to get out of the stroller and join in the class, but we encourage you to keep your children in the stroller until after the final stretch. Their safety is our biggest priority!
