Our stroller fitness classes are essentially a boot-camp-style class for Moms, while their kids are in a stroller or playing on the side. Its 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!
Are your kids too old/big for a stroller? That's okay! Come anyway! Your big kids can play on the side. During our Summer and Evening Classes, we have a babysitter at all of our classes to entertain the big kids!
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.
Please always check our Facebook page prior to class in case of last minute class cancellations due to 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.
