While some moms eagerly bounce back to the gym, others find it challenging to fit exercise into their new life.
Lack of babysitting, lack of sleep and changing hormones may make moms feel like they have no extra energy but physical activity can be especially beneficial for them, according to mayoclinic.com.
The website says that regular exercise after pregnancy can promote weight loss, improve cardiovascular fitness, boost mom’s energy and mood and relieve stress.
One local mom helps other mommies do just that with her Stroller Strides Northwest Indiana franchise, which provides a workout designed for moms. Children come along in their strollers and each exercise is tailored to the individual’s fitness level.
