We STRONGLY encourage you to enable your video settings on Zoom for these reasons:
- For your safety, your Team Leader will be checking in regularly to ensure you are doing all movements safely and properly.
- It creates a stronger community when we can see faces.
- Remember that you are being seen by a community of like minded women who are not there to judge you or your appearance.
- It’s the same award winning service Online that it would be if you stepped into our In Studio Classes. You would not show up to Boot Camp and do your workout in the closet while the rest of the class participated right? Show your beautiful face darling.
If you have an issue with this, please contact us here so that we can make a note in your file. You WILL be required to sign a separate waiver.

There is no need for child care, you can meet other Moms, socialize and get your sanity back. You will tone and strengthen your entire body with your little one at your side. Classes are always schedule for indoors but when it’s appropriate we may move outdoors – don’t worry, we will give you plenty of notice. We have the luxury of an exclusive facility to enjoy Stroller Fit year round.
Stroller Programs are designed for Moms 6 weeks+ postpartum. Having said that it’s not a green light to go hard. We highly recommend a Post Natal Assessment with our on site expert. We also suggest seeing a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist which we can recommend. Toddlers and babies are welcome in all Stroller Fitness Programs of any age.
No worries. All of our little ones are usually happy for class since there is so much to see and hear. If your little one gets fussy you can tend to their needs and carry on. It’s the perfect environment because everyone is in the same boat. Some littles ones enjoy being in a baby carrier for the workout.
Registration is done online from the comfort of your own home!
All Post-Natal clients must have had a 6 week post-natal check up and a Post Natal Assessment prior to commencing a Program. Can’t wait to have you in class!!!
Classes are non-transferable and non-refundable.
