There’s no doubt about it: having a baby puts your body through the ringer. And any mama can tell you that it can be more than a little challenging to fit in a workout after your bundle of joy arrives, no matter how much you’d like to. Luckily, there is a solution. Bring the baby with you! Here are some Metro Vancouver mom and baby fitness classes to check out, that will help you feel like yourself again and bond with your little one at the same time.
Metro Vancouver Mom and Baby Fitness Options
Fit 4 Two
With three locations in the city and seven more locations from Aldergrove to the North Short, Fit 4 Two has you covered when you’re searching for Metro Vancouver mom and baby fitness classes. Offerings include Mom & Baby Barre, Mom & Baby Bootcamp, Mom & Baby Spin and Strength, Mom & Baby Yoga, Stroller Fitness, and the list goes on (and on!). Schedules and classes vary by location, so check out a few if you’re looking for something specific.
Mommies in Motion
Mommies in Motion offers total body Vancouver mom and baby fitness classes. All classes are held outdoors and require a sturdy stroller. Their fall sessions are meeting at Douglas Park Community Centre in Vancouver. Instructors are BCRPA certified moms who have been there, and done that. Or, if classes don’t work for you, you can also check out their personal training.
Mommy Moves primarily offers aquafit classes for new moms and moms-to-be. You’ll get to enjoy the water with your little one while fitting in a workout. They offer sessions at a number of pools across Langley, Surrey and Port Coquitlam. They even have a combined prenatal and mom-and-toddler aquafit class for those mamas expecting their second.
Runners and Booties Fitness
Stroll and dance your way into shape with Metro Vancouver mom and baby fitness and dance classes through Runners and Booties Fitness. They offer free weekly Shop ‘n Stroll classes at six locations across the Lower Mainland. They also offer free Zumba for Mom & Baby classes at Lougheed Mall in Burnaby and free Groovin’ Babies dance classes at Brentwood Town Centre in Burnaby.
We’ve already featured YogaButtons in our post on Vancouver Yoga for Kids. The studio in Kits doesn’t just cater to children, though – they also offer prenatal and postnatal yoga classes for moms. They recommend you start back to yoga at four to six weeks postpartum, and they encourage you to bring your baby with you.
