How to Get Moving this Winter: 3 Moves you Can Do At Home with your Stroller

Getting outside in the winter months is especially important for the mind and body. The air is fresh and crisp, so simply getting out into nature provides a nice break from spending more time indoors due to changing weather and temps. Also, when there is less sunshine in the sky, and, therefore, less natural vitamin D getting absorbed into our system, moving our bodies, even in a gentle walk around the neighborhood, can be a great mood booster (and after this year, we all need more of that).

Here are some ideas to get moving outside this winter (with your family or solo)...

  • Layer up and take a walk around the block or a local park!
  • Hit the slopes - take the family skiing, snowboarding, or sledding.
  • Go ice skating at a local outdoor rink.
  • Try snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.
  • Go on a family nature scavenger hunt in your neighborhood and/or backyard.
  • Wear bright colors, lace-up, and go for a run.
  • Build a snowman and/or have a snowball fight.
  • Workout whenever, wherever with FIT4MOM On Demand. Get a free week on us!
  • Grab your BOB Gear® stroller (want one from Santa?? See our top-pick for a jogging stroller in our Gift Guide) and your kiddos, and do a quick stroller workout like this one below!

In just 10-minutes, this stroller workout will shape and tone your lower body and booty; no babysitter or childcare is required because you can keep your kids in-tow!


Warm-up - With your stroller, go for a quick two-minute walk or jog outside; or, alternate between jogging + walking high knees + booty kickers for two minutes instead.

THE CIRCUIT (Repeat x3)

  • Peek-a-Boo Shuffle - 1 minute
  • Pendulum Lunge - 1 minute
  • Stroller Toe Tap - 1 minute


To bring down your heart rate after completing the full workout, go for a one-minute walk (outdoors or in place) and steady your breathing. Consider taking one of our on-demand yoga classes to stretch and unwind after your workout; get a FREE WEEK, on us!

P.S. Whether you're strollin' through your neighborhood or stridin' down your city streets, the BOB Gear® team has created some quick-reference safety tips for your everyday use and convenience. Wherever your adventures take you, always do so safely!

We know it can be hard to stay motivated to work out as it gets cooler outside (especially in areas where it’s snowing and too cold to exercise outdoors). Make sure to block off time for YOU throughout the week to give your body + mind TLC: a quick workout a few times a week, time in nature, bundle up for short walks around the block, do yoga, meditate, etc...create a warm and cozy spot somewhere in your house where you can unwind, relax, and have a little self-care sanctuary. We hope these ideas to get outside and get moving when it’s cold outside help motivate you to have a happy and healthy holiday season.
