FAQs

Interested in joining us for a class? We got you, mama. Here is everything you need to know.

What do I need to bring to class?

Plenty of water, towel or yoga mat/blanket, sunscreen (for outdoor classes), baby essentials including snacks and/or toys for your little one(s), comfortable walking/running shoes (both Stroller Strides and St are traveling classes), appropriate exercise attire, and any kind of stroller.

I just had a baby, when can I start attending classes?

You can begin attending class with your doctor's clearance to begin exercising, typically after your six week postpartum appointment. See you there, mama!

Can I attend classes if I am pregnant?

Absolutely! We encourage expectant moms to continue to exercise throughout their pregnancies as long as everything has been approved by their physician. Instructors are qualified to lead our professionally designed pre/postnatal fitness programs that follow the latest American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) guidelines. We can modify any exercise that poses a challenge as you progress through your pregnancy. FIT4MOM® recommends you obtain your doctor’s approval prior to starting. If pregnant, please speak with your physician before your first day.

Exercise during pregnancy has proven beneficial and helps improve or increase the following:

  • Cardiovascular fitness

  • Muscular strength/endurance

  • Energy levels

  • Higher fatigue threshold

  • Posture and biomechanics

  • Circulation

  • Self-esteem, sense of well-being

  • Recovery time

Can I try a class before I join?

Your first class is always FREE! This allows you to see firsthand if FIT4MOM is a good fit for you (and your little one, if you are trying a stroller-friendly workout)! When you and create a profile, your first FREE class is automatically gifted to your account and you can come try us out!

How will I know if the class location has changed due to weather?

In case of inclement weather, outdoor class locations may change. Follow us on Facebook and check for updates an hour before class starts. We also send notifications to our client list via email if we have enough advance notice.

Do I need to be a runner to attend these classes?

Absolutely not! Our classes are for moms of ALL fitness levels. You exercise at the pace you feel most comfortable.

At what age can my baby be in a jogger?

As a general guideline, when your baby can hold his/her head up, he/she can ride in a jogger. But, we suggest that you follow your own stroller manufacturer’s guidelines. You can use a head roll and bolster to make your baby even more secure. With shock absorbers and recline features, the age can be quite young.

Do I need a jogging stroller for Stroller Strides/Strides 360?

Jogging strollers are not required. As long as the stroller is sturdy, not prone to tipping and all children can be safely strapped into their seats for the duration of class, it will work just fine!

My Baby doesn't like being in the stroller for too long, how will I get a good workout?

Babies are priority, so don't worry if your baby becomes fussy during class! Our classes are designed to keep the kids moving and engaged by incorporating songs and various props to keep them entertained. With that said, if you need to change, nurse or console your baby, please do so (remember, you are in good company). Kids will have good and bad days and we understand that. The kiddos learn the new routine of "mommy's hour" and learn a few things during our workout too!

How old does my baby need to be to start classes?

Babies and kids can join you at Stroller Strides & Strides 360 atany age as long as they can still safely be buckled in the stroller. We recommend waiting until you have medical clearance from your physician (normally this is 6-8 weeks postpartum). Always obtain 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?

That's okay! Sometimes babies cry. You will be in a group full of moms with their kids - we've all been there and we all get it. You're always able to do what you need to do to take care of your little one and, of course, we try to keep things moving so that the kids are happy and entertained.

What if I need to feed my baby during class?

We’ve got you, mama! If you need to change, feed, nurse or console your baby, please do so. Your instructor will make sure to provide you with comfort and discretion during class.

Can my older children walk along or ride their bike during class?

Safety is our first priority, so we do not allow children under age 5 to be out of the stroller during class. Please discuss your situation with the instructor prior to arriving at class with older children.

are there other ACTIVITIES outside of class?

Yes. We have mom's nights, play dates, special events, and a book club!
