- Story Text: Out of condition Mums in New York have found a new way of getting fit, and keeping their toddlers happy, all at the same time.
It's called "Strollercize" and it's no stroll in the park! The classes lure frustrated young mums to New York's Central Park every day, using the stroller as a fitness tool during a rigorous hour and a half of excercise.
Founded by mum of three, Elizabeth Trindade, Strollercize holds several classes daily. Dozens of young mums race around the park, doing jogging, aerobics, dance and even martial arts exercises with strollers in tow.
Participants say it not only helps them loose those pregnancy pounds and get fit, but also saves their sanity, allowing them to socialise with other young mums and get out of the apartment without having to pay for a babysitter.
Strollercize is great for the kids too, who seem to enjoy being out in the open. The babies are puzzled over what on earth mum is up to, but the toddlers are all keen to join in and get a little work out of their own.
