FAQ

Do I have to have a jogging stroller to attend the workout?

No. Just about any kind of stroller will work as long as it is not prone to tipping (we suggest no umbrella strollers).

Do I need to be a runner to attend these classes?

Absolutely not! Stroller Strides is for moms of all fitness levels. We meet for a warm up, then power walk OR run to the next station. Most times the instructor will send the running moms on a longer path than the walking moms so everyone meets at the next station simultaneously. You exercise at the pace you feel most comfortable, but don't be surprised if you find yourself running a marathon before long!

What do I need to bring to class?

  • Plenty of Water (it's gets hot here in Hawaii)
  • Towel, Blanket or Yoga Mat for floor exercises and stretching
  • A hat and/or sunscreen
  • Baby essentials including snacks and/or toys for your little ones
  • Comfortable walking/running shoes and appropriate exercise attire
  • Just about any kind of stroller will do as long as it is not prone to tipping (no umbrella strollers)
  • Resistance bands. We use bands at class most of the time.
  • ** On Wednesdays we use weights at class, so if you have a 3-5 lb pair of weights, please bring them. If not, your instructor should have some to borrow.

Can I join Stroller Strides if I am pregnant?

YES, YES, YES! We encourage expectant mothers to continue to exercise through their pregnancy as long as it has been approved by their physician. Instructors are trained in both pre- and post-natal fitness and follow the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) fitness guidelines.

We can modify any exercise that poses an issue as you progress through your pregnancy. Stroller Strides does require a Doctor's approval prior to beginning Stroller Strides if you are pregnant.

Exercise during pregnancy helps improve or increase:

  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Muscular strength/endurance
  • Energy levels
  • Higher fatigue threshold
  • Posture and biomechanics
  • Circulation
  • Self-esteem, sense of well-being
  • Post-Delivery recovery time

I just had a baby, when can I join Stroller Strides?

With your Doctor's clearance to begin exercising, after your six week post-partum appointment you may begin attending class!

My baby isn't a fan of the stroller, now what?

At Stroller Strides, your children are our priority, so don't worry if yours is fussy! Our classes are designed to keep the kids moving and we engage them by incorporating songs into our exercise moves and use props to keep them entertained. With that being said, if you need to change your baby, nurse or console them then please do so - remember, you are in good company! Kids will have good and not-so-good, we completely understand! We assure you they will get used to "Mommy's hour" and will be entertained during our workout too! The example you are setting for them by seeing Mommy exercise is priceless! You are impacting their lives on fitness at an early age and you should be proud to do so.

Can I still join if I have non-stroller aged kids?

YES! Yes!! In fact, we have moms who attend the workout with NO kids in tow! Stroller Strides works for woman in ANY stage of motherhood!
