You got the six-week okay from your doctor to
work out again, but you're not quite ready to
leave your little one with a sitter. No problem;
just bring her along to one of these classes.
- Stroller Strides (from $10 per class; stroller
strides.com) Choose between indoor sessions
at a local mall or outdoor workouts in a park.
Classes last 60 to 75 minutes and include at
least 45 minutes of walking to crank up the
calorie burn, as well as muscle-toning moves
that use your stroller and a resistance band.
- Baby Boot Camp (from $5 per class; baby
bootcamp.com) Despite the name of the class,
your baby won't have to do anything more
than relax. You, however, will sweat your way
through 55 to 75 minutes of strength training
and cardio. The classes—there are three
levels—meet at community centers or parks.
- Itsy Bitsy Yoga (from $14 per class; itsy
bitsyyoga.com) Newborns through 4-year-olds
are welcome at these hour-long sessions held
in yoga studios nationwide. As your child gets
older, she'll become more involved in the
class, performing poses beside you.
