We brought Workout Wednesday into the studio for exercises you can do while out and about with your child, and all you need is a stroller.
Lisa Filzen with FIT4MOM showed us a few moves from her Stroller Strides program.
"Fit4Mom is a national franchise that actually started in California and moved across the U.S.," says Lisa. "It is a fitness program for all stages of motherhood."
No matter the stage you're in as a mom, you probably already know it requires some multitasking. That's where Stroller Strides comes in, with simple exercises you can do while running errands or even at home. The first move Lisa demonstrated was a basic walking lunge.
"It's very effective for the lower body," says Lisa, adding that the class involves variations of the movement, including kicking the foot back, and a curtsy lunge that involves stepping one foot over the other.
The second move is a chest press using resistance bands. The exercise also involves some extra fun for the kids.
"This one's not so much about using the stroller as it is about entertaining your audience in the stroller," says Lisa, who recommends tickling your child's feet on the extension.
Classes are held Monday and Friday mornings, and Wednesday nights at Playfront, which is next to Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth.
