Triangle-Area Moms to Enjoy Week of Free Exercise Classes

With temperatures taking a refreshing dip, now’s the time to get out and exercise, and there’s a sweet deal coming our way. Stroller Strides, a unique fitness program for moms and stroller-aged kids, is offering a free week of classes, starting Saturday, Sept. 24, through Friday, Sept. 30, at all three of its Triangle-area franchises.

The franchises, one in Chapel Hill and two in Raleigh, are inviting moms to try out their special combination of fitness, fun and social support outdoors. The hour-long program is designed to provide a total body workout, improving cardiovascular endurance, strength and flexibility. Along with walking, Stroller Strides trainers use the environment as a gym offering intervals of body toning using exercise tubing and the stroller.

As a mom, I know how hard it can be to just get out of the house with a little one. Sometimes getting exercise for yourself takes a low priority, behind everything else you have to do. With classes being held in a variety of locations, you shouldn’t have to go too far to attend. You’re invited to take a sturdy stroller (it does not have to be a jogging stroller), water and sun protection for yourself and the little one. Moms can register online at www.strollerstrides.com and are also welcome to register upon arrival at the class.

Saturday (9/24)
