These Mommy and Me classes include fitness techniques and training that coincide with our strollering classes to expand and stretch your routine. The classes are designed with the whole family in mind (with or without a stroller) and include endurance building and goal training exercises. They include classes where you can exercise side by side with your children, alongside your workout buddy, or alone as you breathe in the fresh air while striving to be a more healthy you:
Core Conditioning - A class that will keep your mind hopping as much as your heart rate! This class will alternate between many of the current workout styles found popular today. Your instructor may offer you aerobic, step aerobics, stationary circuits, cardio- kick boxing, dance fitness, core training or any other type of workout that may challenge you. This class may be perfect for those moms who have found they no longer have kids in strollers.
NOTE: Children are always welcome at all MMF class, though they are not incorporated into this workout. Use of stroller or baby carrier recommended for non-walkers. Toys are welcome. Strollers are not part of the workout.
Run Like You Did as a Kid: Building Endurance - For children, moms or dads ages 5 and up, this class can be offered at the same time as a Strolling Series class. This class is goal oriented and running specific. Agility, form, and speed training will accompany an endurance run each class that works up to 35 minutes for moms and 15-35 minutes for children. Each person will be able to go his/her own pace, but will see improvement in that pace as the weeks progress. Participants are encouraged to set a goal or enter a race of a 5 or 10k by the end of the class session.
Note: Younger children of a mom who wants to take this class for her own endurance growth are welcome. Use of strollers recommended for children under 5. Moms have the option to push or park stroller during class, but there can be some classes where trails or grassy fields may be used for a continuous run.
Tummies- A 30 minute Core abdominal workout that will definitely get those abs burning! This class is held before or after a stroller fit class. Mothers are educated about common abdominal issues related to pregnancy and safe ways to strengthen the core abdominal muscles to pre-pregnancy status.
