Can I participate Stroller Strides classes if I am pregnant?

We absolutely encourage expectant mothers to attend! 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 to make it appropriate for you as you progress through your pregnancy. However, we do require a doctor's approval prior to attending class 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
