Mom & Baby StrollerFit
The New Mummy Co is delighted to offer Stroller Fit classes that have been specifically formulated for maximum results to help new mothers to raise their fitness levels without having to leave their bundles of joy. Delivered by expert trainers our sessions begin outside our Oakville location. You will get started with a fast paced walk in the beautiful surroundings of Oakville where you and your babies lungs will be filled with fresh air.
We offer fun, interactive and supportive classes that are all about personal care for mothers with young babies. We help you to reach your fitness goals by gently but effectively guiding your body to a desired fitness level post delivery.
The great outdoors is our fitness playground as you get your heart pumping and stroller wheels rolling. Power walking, muscle conditioning, strengthening and stretching activities leave you feeling empowered and re-energized as a new mommy while bond with your baby.
One hour long and at your pace, the benefits of our stroller fit sessions can be felt after the very first visit. It’s possible that you will feel the effects of the exercises the following day!
It is always best to check with your Doctor before starting a new training routine.

How old should my baby before I attend?
You yourself should be at least 6 weeks postpartum and have the all-clear from your doctor or health care provider such as your midwife before beginning any new exercise regime. Depending on your pregnancy and birth you may need additional time to recover which is why its important to get clearance from your health professional before beginning postnatal exercise.
Do I need to be a runner to attend these classes?
No, you do not need to be a runner or any other type of athlete. Our classes are designed and tailored for new moms of any fitness level. It does not matter whether you have exercised before or not. You exercise at the rate and pace that you are comfortable with. Your fitness level will increase with each class that you attend. This is as much about socialization as it is about fitness, we want to you to have fun and meet other new moms in the area.
What happens in bad weather or if something unpredictable happens?
If the weather is a safety risk then we may cancel the class or bring it indoors to our yoga studio (numbers permitting). Any class that has to be canceled due to unforeseen circumstances will be credited back to you for use at another time.
What should I wear?
A well-fitted sports bra is any new mother’s best friend! Comfortable stretchy layers of clothing and supportive running/walking shoes are best. While outdoors its best to wear layers that you can remove easily. You will no doubt need to remove a layer or two as the workout progresses and you warm up. Same applies to baby, dress baby in layers as the weather can be unpredictable at times.
Do I need a running stroller?
No, you don’t need a running or sporty stroller. Just ensure that your tires are inflated if you have inflatable tires and that your baby is secured to the stroller with the harness.
What if my baby cries?
Babies cry, thats how they communicate with you! You are in a safe place where everyone around you understands that all babies cry. At any time that your baby needs your attention you are free to stop and give them the care that they need.Everyone there will have a baby with them so don’t worry, everyone is in the same situation.
What happens if I need to feed my baby?
Please, stop and feed your baby at any time that you need to. To minimize feedings for the hour of your class we suggest offering your baby a feed before your session starts. However we know that babies will need to feed and its not always at the best times so if you need to feed your baby, stop and feed baby. It’s not a problem at all.
What equipment is needed at a class?
You will need your baby’s diaper bag so that you have everything that they may need. You will also need some running shoes, comfy clothes, a hat for baby and mummy and a water bottle. Wearing sunscreen is always a good idea!
What if this is my first exercise after having a baby?
You know your body best so do what feels right for you. Don’t overexert yourself, as movements you did before the baby will feel different post-baby.
What age is too old for my baby to come to class?
Great, question! Some babies will sit in a stroller happy for hours as they enjoy the ever changing scenery and interaction from those around them. Other babies will get fussy when they are in a stroller for any period of time. You know your baby best! Generally once a baby is mobile they love their freedom so may not be keen to sit in the stroller. If you are unsure about how long they will be content to sit in their stroller while you workout around them then we can suggest that you bring following and come to one class and try it out to see how content baby is for the hour.
