Trying to get back in shape after the birth of your baby can seem more challenging than motherhood itself! Who has time to go to the gym or find a baby-sitter? Veteran personal trainer and mother-of-three Elizabeth Trindade has a workout solution for all new moms -- Strollercize(r) -- the best way to slim down, tone up, and meet the demands of your busy new life. All you need is your stroller, your baby, and the will to push your way to health and fitness, whether your goal is to run a marathon or simply to get back into your old jeans.
Strollercize was born when Trindade, a former dancer and a new mom herself, realized that the bulky stroller she was now maneuvering was essentially a ballet barre on four wheels -- and the perfect workout apparatus. She's created an energizing, fun, and effective routine that can be done safely, indoors or out, while you keep your baby with you. Strollercize features:
* A complete cardiovascular routine, from warm-up to cooldown
* Strength and toning exercises for legs, arms, and hips
* A total waistline workout that gets results
* Stretches that feel great and help you regain flexibility
* Back-saving techniques for pushing, lifting, and folding your stroller properly
From choosing the right stroller for your needs to getting motivated and losing the unwanted "baby fat," Strollercize is a complete program and one with fitness rewards you'll be reaping long after your baby is out of the stroller.
