Stroller Fitness class is a place where babies are welcome and strollers are used as a piece of exercise equipment, just like yoga mats, weights, bands, etc. Moms are lead, by the instructor, through a series of exercises (cardio, strength, etc), while the kids remain in the strollers. However, the kids are entertained throughout class. For example, while doing squats in front of the strollers, the moms will sing "This Little Piggy" while tickling their child's toes. It may be fun for the kids…but trust me, it will be a great workout for the moms!
Wheee Get Fit & Play strives to improve the health, energy-levels, and overall lives of moms, for all changes she will experience during and after pregnancy; while also fostering the social and physical development of their children through play.
Classes are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursday mornings at 9:30 AM year round. Currently classes are held at Mad Dog Lacrosse in Manasquan.
During the Spring and Fall, we hold an Evening Class Session. Clickhere for more info.
Please always check our Facebook page prior to class in case of last minute class cancellations due to weather or illness.
The 45-minute stroller-based fitness class caters to all fitness levels including pregnant women, brand new moms, or even conditioned moms training for a triathlon. We use a variety of exercise forms to keep things fun; such as cardio, strength, core development, circuit training, plyometrics, and more. Exercise modifications are always offered and encouraged to accommodate all fitness levels,
The mommy-and-me (child-focused) play segment is lead by the fitness instructor. This portion of the class allows you to help guide your infant/toddler through their own social and physical development. Each class may include singing, playing musical instruments (shakers and bells), dancing, sensory play (think shaving cream), and physical movements appropriate for 6 week olds to toddlers.
We're all moms. We get it! Tantrums happen. Hungry babies happen. Poop happens. At any given time during class, we can pretty much guarantee at least one child will be crying, needing a diaper change, wanting to eat, or throwing goldfish from their stroller. We're a community of moms doing our best to be healthy. But stuff happens! And its okay. Feed your baby. Change them. Comfort them. And jump back into the workout when you can.
