Hello Team Aaptiv, we’re thrilled to announce a brand new addition to the app: stroller workouts!
We’ve partnered with pregnancy guru and founder of FitBump, Kira Kohrherr to bring you seven dynamic stroller workouts. These classes combine strength, plyometrics, and cardio as well as walking and intervals to bring you a fun, effective way to workout on the go with your child.
Kira Kohrherr’s stroller classes are specifically designed to promote healing after childbirth and to strengthen the muscles you use most in mommy hood. These classes are open level, meaning they’re doable for all fitness levels. They include a warm up, a workout, and a cool down and last from 22 to 30 minutes.
And, don’t stress about your stroller. You don’t need a fancy jogging stroller to do these workouts. Any quality stroller will do. Ready to try a stroller class? Check them out below!
Aaptiv’s Stroller Workouts:
Leg Love Stroller Workout
Lower Body: If you only do regular squats and lunges you’re missing out on the lower-body benefits different variations offer including extra hip and thigh strength. This class delivers the variety your body (and mind) needs.
Stroller Core + More
Upper Body + Core: This class is all about strengthening the muscles that are useful in picking up your baby (and that heavy stroller) all day long.
Stroller Strength 20
Total Body Cardio + Strength: The moves are paired, like push-ups and squat jacks, for an effective and fast total-body burn. You’ll do 1 minute of the strength move, 30 seconds of the cardio plyo, and then you’ll have 1 minute to recover, repeated 6 times with 6 fresh pairs.
Plyometrics: This class is divided into three parts, mixing minute-long intervals with rep based movements. It’s fun, fast, and effective. And yes, there are burpees at the end — consider yourself warned.
Stroller Strong Vibes
Lower Body: Why walk with the stroller when you can do walking lunges and push the stroller. This top hits class targets your glute and leg muscles with lots of effective lunge variations.
Everyday We’re Stroller-ing
Cardio: This 30-minute class is simple and effective. You’ll do the cardio and strength circuit two times. Focus on moving with proper form during the first set, then pick up the pace and try to do more reps during the second set.
Total Body: Show us your moves! You’ll be blasting through the 30-, 60-, and 90-second intervals that challenge your strength and get your heart rate up.
***Important: We advise any woman who is considering doing exercise after childbirth to first get clearance from her doctor to work out. Most women should not work out before six weeks post birth.
***Do not perform stroller workouts with babies less than six months old.
