Almost any type of stroller will do, aside from an umbrella stroller. Bring a water bottle and a mat or towel for abs/stretching and we'll have the resistance tubing for your first day. Feel free to bring a baby carrier if you'd like the option to wear your little one.
Stroller Strides is the original stroller based fitness program and there's a reason we're the largest in the nation. With 14 years of experience we know how to cater to moms in all phases of life.
With Stroller Strides, you can attend several different locations, you're not committed to (and potentially bored by) one park or gym. We offer classes in San Rafael, San Anselmo and Mill Valley. Skip around and frequent them all!
We also do not require any contracts, we know life gets crazy sometimes so our membership is always month-to-month with options to pause for vacations, births, etc.
Our certified instructors are always moms too, we understand what your bodies are going through and give lots of options for all levels of fitness. Possibly even more important, we know that you're happy if your little ones are happy so we weave songs, tickles and more fun into classes.
You're in good company! We are all moms (and dads!) who understand that little ones get fussy. You can stop and nurse, change diapers, whatever you need to do and continue on with class but please always keep in mind that nobody is bothered by your little one. We all have fussy ones sometimes! If you do need to leave a class and miss 1/2 or more, we'll gladly comp your visit and welcome you back soon.
When can I start class?
You can begin Stroller Strides classes as soon as you have your first postpartum appointment and are cleared for exercise (usually around 6 weeks) We'll encourage you to take it easy and start by walking and doing all of the low impact options that are always given.
Mamas come with little ones ages 6 weeks all the way up to 5 + years!
