Mother of all fitness challenges
Do you have some baby weight to lose? Try using that baby stroller as your workout gear. Tampa's Stroller Strides offers multiple classes in the area. Or consider signing up for Baby Boot Camp’s 2011 Mother Love Fitness Challenge, where moms will commit to three months of the stroller fitness classes while they compete to become the nation’s fittest mom and win monthly prizes. Last February a mom in Lafayette, Calif., won a $100 Visa card by logging 152.23 miles on her stroller.
Register through Jan. 13, and the challenge runs Jan. 31-May 1. Each month will have a special focus such as strength or cardio, and you can win prizes for the most mileage in the stroller, most push-ups, team awards and more. There’s a $29 enrollment fee which includes an event shirt, tracking and assessment sheets and free samples from national sponsors. Classes are $15 each, but there are price deals for multiple class signups. You can find numerous class sites in the Tampa Bay area at www.babybootcamp.com.
