Chrystal Ziebart started her FIT4MOM journey as a mama taking Stroller Strides classes. She loved the movement and community so much, she began instructing and now is the franchisee owner of FIT4MOM Chino Hills. She loves using the stroller to encourage more movement into mamas’ daily lives. “Using your stroller to exercise is so easy. You're already probably going for walks with your little one(s), so it's a really easy next step to incorporate a little extra to make those walks fun for your little one and beneficial for you too,” Chrystal says.
As you will see, this workout moves like a box around your stroller. You will start facing the front, move to 1 side, then the back, around to the other side & then back to facing your kids in the stroller. This workout is a blend of moves to boost your heart rate and ones focused on strengthening your body with a resistance band through pushing and pulling exercises.
At FIT4MOM, we believe in training to be better movers and to be stronger in our #momlife, so our fitness classes move the way you move. Strength training by body weight and resistance bands offers a wide variety of health and fitness benefits including increased muscle strength and endurance - which helps decrease pain and injuries. Being able to push (moving objects away from you) and pull (moving objects towards you) properly assists in everything from getting out of bed, putting away groceries, and carrying a child.
“Leading moms in strength exercises is so rewarding. You get to meet all types of moms - the newborn mamas, the social mamas, the ones who love to exercise, and the moms who may have never exercised before - no matter what type of mom comes to class, they always walk away feeling so strong, empowered, and confident in themselves. It's amazing watching them realize exercise doesn't have to be hard or boring to make positive impacts in their life,” Chrystal shares.
We have even included some fun activities to help you entertain the kiddos while you are doing the movements. Make sure to do the warm-up first before diving in! Then, the workout should build a box around the Stroller. Complete each exercise of the workout for 1 minute and complete the box 2 times. Finish with some amazing stretches we have included as well.
Grab your stroller & let’s get rolling.
