FAQ

Stroller Strides

Do I need to pay admission to the Fruita Community Center to attend FIT4MOM/Stroller Strides classes?

No, you do not need to pay pass or drop in rates to attend FIT4MOM Fruita classes. If you choose to use the facility outside of our classes you would need to pay pass or drop in rates at that point.

Having a FIT4MOM plan or pass DOES NOT also give you a pass to the Fruita Community Center and vice versa.

What is Stroller Strides

Stroller Strides is the perfect Mommy-and-Me activity!

These classes are no walk in the park. In just one hour you will get a complete head to toe workout that will have you feeling energized and looking fit! Classes are designed for ALL different fitness levels and are taught by certified instructors who are also moms. During our stations, we use resistance bands, open fields for drills or obstacles, benches or steps and anything in the environment to give you a great workout! Don't be surprised if you find yourself saying words like "burpee" or "plank" before long!

How do I get started??

Join us for a complimentary class! Select a class location and date that interests you and you "enroll" for that class online. If you need additional help, call 970.712.3616 or email lindsaymaurer@fit4mom.com

Can I join Stroller Strides if I am pregnant?

YES, YES, YES! We encourage expectant moms to continue to exercise through their pregnancy unless their doctor has advised otherwise. Instructors are trained in both pre and post natal fitness and follow the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists guidelines. We can modify any exercise that poses an issue as you progress through your pregnancy. 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
  • Recovery time

What do I need to bring to class?

Other than you, your baby, and your stroller, we suggest wearing comfortable exercise clothes and athletic shoes. Please bring plenty of water and a towel or yoga mat for our ground exercises. For outdoor classes please bring a hat and/or sunblock. Don't forget to pack baby some snacks or stroller toys for the ride too!

Do I need a jogger stroller?

NO! While we are BOB jogging stroller fanatics, just about any stroller will do. We do not recommend umbrella strollers since they are not very maneuverable and can tip easily

How old does my baby need to be?

You must wait until until your baby is at least 6 weeks of age to begin class. Children can join for classes up to any age as long as they still enjoy a ride in the stroller and can be safely buckled in. If you are newly postpartum, always get your doctor's permission before starting this or any other kind of exercise program.

I haven't exercised in a long time...will I be able to do class?

All exercises have modifications for any level of exerciser. Take it easy during your first class, and talk with your instructor about any additional concerns you have. We are here to support YOU and help you make individual strides in fitness, motherhood, and life!

I have some RARE baby-free time...can I still come to class?

Absolutely! FIT4MOM offers time for YOU! Bringing your child is not required for class. Come get a great workout child-free!

How long are the workouts?

The workouts are 1-hour. The class is usually set up with a 5-minute warm up followed by a 45-minute full body workout with the stroller that includes power walking, cardio blasts and body toning stations. The last 10 minutes is focused on core work and stretching.

What if my baby gets fussy during class?

Our first priority is the happiness of your baby. Tend to your baby first. We stop every few minutes for body toning, so you can always catch up with us if you get behind. Our instructors will do their very best to make the class enjoyable for both you and your baby!

What do I do in inclement weather?

All classes will have inclement weather locations. Class will only be canceled in extreme weather conditions. You will receive an automated email with the location change or rare class cancellation at least 1-hour before class start time.
