The Original Mommy and Baby Fitness
This action-packed class includes a large variety of fun, easy to follow but intense fitness for Mom and Baby. We start with our creative warm up for mom with baby together, a “mommy only” fitness segment (babies are right beside us watching!), mom and baby strengthening and conditioning (we ALWAYS include abdominal and core work) and our cool down stretch and “mommy meditation”
Following the fitness is our huge repertoire of “infant stimulation”; songs, rhymes, fingerplays, kneebouncers, parachute activities, bubbles, and so much more. You will receive our Mommy and Baby Fitness Workout and Play™ song and rhymes booklet – excellent for in-home use!
The class concludes with a group discussion, occasional “special guest speakers”, and “show and tell’. A must for every new mom and baby! Join this class today so that you can work hard and play hard!!

Q: Do I have to be a member of the club?
Q: I am going to miss the first class (classes) or some classes during the session or what if I miss a class!?
A: Mommy and Baby Fitness is proud to offer our very fair and very lenient missed class/make up class policy; Any missed classes may be made up at ANY of our other Mommy and Baby Fitness venues of your choice WITHIN YOUR 8 WEEK SESSION.
Q: I can’t imagine how I would work out with my baby! What do you do?
A: Mommy and Baby Fitness and our team of certified instructors have created fun, unique warm ups that we do with the baby! We lift them and dance with them and utilize them as weights to great Mom and Baby related songs!! After the warm up with baby, we put them in their car seats, strollers or on mats right beside us and continue to work out while they watch (or sleep or play). We use the babies again for upper and lower body work, abdominal conditioning and our “Mommy Meditation — Stretch”. And the next thirty minutes is devoted to baby with rhymes, songs, kneebouncers, fingerplays, parachute games, bubbles and so much more!!! So both Mom and Baby benefit from this program!
Q: What if my baby needs to feed during the class?
A: We work around our babies’ schedule; so feeding, diaper changing, caring for baby goes on throughout the class. That is why we have created a 2-hour program, so that if Mom needs to care for her baby during part of the class, there are still lots of activities and benefits left to enjoy!
Q: I have a really fussy baby and I don’t think he/she will co-oporate in a class!
A: Fussy babies love Mommy and Baby Fitness programs because there is so much Mom and Baby interaction. After the warm up with baby, if they are fussy Mom can still do some of the class holding baby to calm them down. All of our classes are geared towards Mom and Baby together!
**We are happy to offer you a “free trial first class” if you are unsure that your baby will cooperate in class**
**Space pending. Please call or email us for more details**
Q: I have heard about fitness classes that you do with the baby in the “snuggly” or front or back carriers but my baby is heavy and it is hard on my back…..do I have to “wear” my baby?
A: With Mommy and Baby Fitness programs we interact with our babies and utilize them as weights, everything in these programs are modifiable…..using a “snuggly” or baby carrier is totally optional — we generally do not use them as part of our program but they are of course optional and they do come in handy for younger babies who would perhaps sleep in them while Mom works out.
Enjoy the fresh air and shape up with baby in the park!! Our certified, experienced instructors lead our power walking sessions incorporating muscular conditioning, strengthening, stretching and Mommy meditation — much more than just a walk in the park!! Although we strive to challenge your cardio and muscles with an intense workout……..everyone works at your own pace within your own intensity. We utilize steps, stairs, curbs, hills and picnic tables as circuits to add to your workout – bootcamp style!!
As with all of the Mommy and Baby Fitness programs, babies will delight in our huge repertoire of songs and rhymes and fingerplays, parachute activities, bubbles, birds, grass, each other and so much more!
A group discussion and information session will conclude this class. This class is suitable for babies aged 6 weeks – 20 months. This class runs for 90 mins.
Q: For the strollerfitness class, do I need a special “jogging stroller”?
A: Not at all. Mommy and Baby Fitness focuses on the post natal aspect of a new Mom and running is always optional but not enfored. We power walk incorporating muscular conditioning as we go to make it a great workout for every fitness level. Any brand or make of stroller is suitable. We have even had some Moms do the strollerfitness class with a “snap and go” and it does work, but a regular type of stroller is best!
Q: What if it is raining or really cold and windy out?
A: We will contact you directly on the day of if we feel that we should cancel a class due to inclement weather. Make up classes for cancelled classes will be added to the end of the session or on another day decided by the group.
Q: Can Dad/another partner participate in this class with baby?
A: Absolutely! Some of our locations are restricted to women only, but we do have many locations that men can attend!
