I know that when my wife gave birth to each of our kids that it was not too obvious as to what she should be doing next to get into shape. Sure if you read around you can find some info easily enough but I just ran across a program that a lasy has started to help new mothers get together and get new mothers into better shape after pregnancy
Amanda Russell takes fitness in stride. Literally. Russell, mother of a 1-year-old son, runs a workout program for moms called Stroller Strides.
A franchise, Stroller Strides, is a 60-minute class that focuses on cardiovascular activities and muscle-strengthening exercises using resistance bands, body and strollers. Moms are able to interact with their babies throughout their workout.
‘Stroller Strides is not only an amazing workout, but a great social outlet for myself and my daughter,’ said Danielle Rousayne of Pembroke, mother of a 20-month-old daughter. ‘I did not have many friends in the area with children, and these women have become some of my best friends. I love that my daughter can play with other kids.’
This is a great thing. Look around your community if you are a new mom and see if you can find a program like this as well to do more than sit and meet new moms but instead move while you are meeting with other new moms.
