The workout classes are safe and relevant for pregnant, postpartum, those just getting started on a fitness journey or mamas that have been back in their fitness groove for a while. Certified instructors can modify every single exercise for every stage of motherhood. Each 45-minute, total body workout incorporates power walking and strolling, strength training, balance work, and toning through the use of body weight exercises, hand weights, resistance bands, and more. Strollers In Motion is more than just a fitness class- it’s a supportive community of moms with monthly Mom’s Night Out events and playdates for the kiddos. This is a place you come to sweat, but also a place you come to build friendships, seek support, and bond over motherhood.
“Being a modern mom can be very isolating and feels like an extreme sport most days. Not only did this class help get me back into an awesome fitness routine, but it gave me a community of other moms just like me, just trying to figure it all out! I have found something really special here- a community of women who strengthen, encourage, reach out, and most of all support one another!” -Rachel Payzant Holdaway
