Interested in joining us for a class? We got you, mama. Here is everything you need to know.
Stroller Strides / Stroller Barre
What do I need to bring to class?
Plenty of water, towel or yoga mat/blanket, sunscreen (for outdoor classes), baby essentials including snacks and/or toys for your little one(s), comfortable walking/running shoes (both Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre are traveling classes), appropriate exercise attire, and any kind of stroller.
I just had a baby, when can I join Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre?
You can begin attending class with your doctor's clearance to begin exercising, typically after your six week postpartum appointment. See you there, Mama!
I want to come to class, what do I do first?
I want to come to class, what do I do first?
We can't wait to have you in class! You can register ahead of time online or you may just show up to class and our instructors will get you all set up. Pre-registration is not a requirement.
Can I attend classes if I am pregnant?
Absolutely! We encourage expectant moms to continue to exercise throughout their pregnancies as long as everything has been approved by their physician. Instructors are qualified to lead our professionally designed pre/postnatal fitness programs that follow the latest American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) guidelines. We can modify any exercise that poses a challenge as you progress through your pregnancy. FIT4MOM® recommends you obtain your doctor’s approval prior to beginning Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre. If pregnant, please speak with your physician before your first day.
Exercise during pregnancy has proven beneficial and helps improve or increase the following:
Higher fatigue threshold
Posture and biomechanics
Self-esteem, sense of well-being
Can I try a class before I join?
Your first Stroller Strides class is always FREE! This allows you to see first hand if Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre is a good fit for you and your little one! If you sign up here and create a profile, your first FREE class is automatically gifted to your account and you can come try us out!
I am ready to join you, what do I do first?
We would love for you to join us, you can choose a class from our schedule and enroll online OR you can just show up to class and our instructors will get you all set up.
Your first class is always free so don't worry there is no pressure from us.
After that you can choose to purchase a monthy membership for $55 a month. This is allows for unlimited classes for Stroller Barre and Stroller Strides classes at all of our locations. It is autodrafted monthly but you can place it on hold or cancel it (without a fee) at anytime! Why? Because we are all moms, and between back to schools, back to work and ever changing sleep schedules we have to be flexible.
You can also choose to purchase a 10 class pass. This pass doesn't expire and works just like a punch card. It can be used at all of our locations for Stroller Barre and Stroller Strides. It is $115 but use the promo code: FAQ for 20% off your purchase. You're welcome mama, we got you!
How will I know if the class location has changed due to weather?
In case of inclement weather, outdoor class locations may change. Follow us on Facebook and check for updates an hour before class starts. We also send notifications to our client list via email if we have enough advance notice.
Do I need to be a Runner to attend these classes?
Absolutely not! Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre is for moms of ALL fitness levels. We meet for a warm up, then power walk, jog, or run to each exercise station. You exercise at the pace you feel most comfortable.
At what age can my baby be in a jogger?
As a general guideline, when your baby can hold his/her head up, he/she can ride in a jogger. But, we suggest that you follow your own stroller manufacturer’s guidelines. You can use a head roll and bolster to make your baby even more secure. With shock absorbers and recline features, the age can be quite young.
Do I need a jogging stroller for the workout?
Jogging strollers are not required. As long as the stroller is sturdy, not prone to tipping and all children can be safely strapped into their seats for the duration of class, it will work just fine!
My Baby doesn't like being in the stroller for too long, how will I get a good workout?
Babies are priority, so don't worry if your baby becomes fussy during class! Our classes are designed to keep the kids moving and engaged by incorporating songs and various props to keep them entertained. With that said, if you need to change, nurse or console your baby, please do so (remember, you are in good company). Kids will have good and bad days and we understand that. The kiddos learn the new routine of "Mommy's hour" and learn a few things during our workout too!
How old does my baby need to be to start classes?
Babies and kids can join you at Stroller Strides/Stroller Barre up to any age as long as they can still safely be buckled in the stroller. We recommend waiting until you have medical clearance from your physician (normally this is 6-8 weeks postpartum). Always obtain your doctor's permission before starting this or any other kind of exercise program.
What do I do if my baby gets fussy during class?
That's okay! Sometimes babies cry. You will be in a group full of moms with their kids - we've all been there and we all get it. You're always able to do what you need to do to take care of your little one and, of course, we try to keep things moving so that the kids are happy and entertained.
What if I need to feed my baby during class?
We’ve got you, Mama! If you need to change, nurse or console your baby, please do so. Your instructor will make sure to provide you with comfort and discretion during class.
Can I bring kids to Body Back?
No. This class is for women 18 and up without children present.
Can I do Body Back if I am pregnant?
No. This workout is not intended for prenatal exercise and we do not recommend following the meal plans during pregnancy. If you become pregnant during the course of your Body Back session, please notify your instructor. We offer FIT4BABY, Stroller Strides, and Stroller Barre as appropriate prenatal exercise programs.
What do I need to bring to class?
A yoga mat or towel for the abs portion and cool down. A resistance band (we will provide one for you on your first day of class), plenty of water, and a towel for your sweat. You WILL sweat!
What is the workout like?
Body Back is a high-intensity interval training class that is delivered in one of three ways: Rounds, Circuit or Traveling. We cycle through Cardio, Strength and Core for a full-body workout that provides a significant caloric afterburn for enhanced results. Every class has an intention and finishes with a relaxing meditation.
Do I need to be in great shape to participate in class?
No. We have all fitness levels in our classes! But, we will warn you ... these classes are designed to be tough! Our goal is to deliver a workout that will challenge any fitness level. It might not be easy, but we promise results by the end of your 8 week session if you put in the work!
What makes Body Back and the Fit4Mom Programs different from the gym?
Body Back is so much more than just another HIIT workout! We are a community of moms where you will find support, encouragement, camaraderie and lifelong friendships. Through education, we help you create a healthier home and more active lifestyle for your family. We believe you should be empowered and encouraged to push past your perceived limits and find inner strength while building physical strength. We strive to build you up and put you first to create your BEST YOU.
Do I need to Pre-Register or can I just show up?
For BODY BACK Transformation sessions, pre-register to ensure your spot in the class. Body Back sessions sell out quickly, so you want to hold your spot by registering early.
For BODY BACK Workout classes or drop-in classes, pre-register so your instructor knows to expect you and can contact you if there are any changes to the class. We require a minimum number of clients to be enrolled in order to offer that class. If you cannot make it to class, you need to cancel with at least 24 hours notice or you will be charged for the class.
What if I have not run since before I had my baby or if I have never run at all?
Our Run Club coaches will lead you to your first mile! Whether it is your first mile ever, or your first mile post-baby, Run Club is appropriate for all levels.
Can I bring my child with me to run club?
Run Club is stroller friendly. Any child that joins you for Run Club should be safely secured in a stroller. Check with your local FIT4MOM franchise to see if the running location is stroller friendly.
What should I bring to run club?
Running shoes and water are essential. A yoga mat or towel would be helpful for the final stretch.

The best thing ever, thats what they are!
Moms nights out are several times a month, and it is a chance to strenghten friendships and laugh...a lot!
Sometimes we will go out to dinner and drinks and sometimes its a super chill moms night in that is filled with yummy food, and your comfiest sweats.
What is playgroup?
We have a weekly playgroup at each of our locations! One of our playgroup captains will come and bring all the supplies you need right after class!
Sometimes it will be a craft for the older kids, and sometimes it will be a big picnic blanket and some toys for tummy time for our youngest little ones!
We post information about our playgroups in our closed Facebook group online.
