Lola Akingbade: Stroller Fitness – A great way to Workout and Bond with your Baby!



A lot of new mothers find it hard working out while also caring for a baby. We tend to get wrapped up in caring for the new baby or our kids while forgetting to take care of ourselves. If we don’t feel great, we can’t provide the best care to our kids.

It’s important that we prioritise our personal care; so we can, not only better care for others, but also set a great example of health for them to follow.

Below is a video of a stroller workout and baby wearing routines with me and my baby. By doing this, we are able to care for our little ones while at the same time working out.

It is clearly the best of both worlds!

Items Used
Baby carrier or wrap: Lilli baby carrier
Stroller: Graco jogging stroller

      You could just do it in your living room especially with the baby carrier.

    I think that certain posts need not be put up…. Not many people live in well planned areas/estates in Nigeria….also conditions in these are sometimes not the best for strollers….
    My husband usually takes our baby in the stroller and I use the time to nap or have my me time. That said any exercise involving a stroller is sheer stupidity if not foolishness or mere ignorance. When you have a baby safety is key you don’t want to put your 100kg or more weight on the stroller with your baby sitting or lying in it… What are you trying to do get rid of baby fat and get rid of the baby as well!! Walks might just be the most realistic… Squats/push ups and the rest when baby sleeps or starts to crawl…

    There are some headings you sight and if you are well mannered enough not to let out a looong hiss, you perhaps feel some pity at the waste of resources for a well meant but misdirected write-up.

    I would like to assume that Nigerian-resident readers make up the greater/est chunk of BN readership. Nannies, relatives and Creches are the preferred childcare options. Bad roads, awful drivers, open sewers, creepy crawlies, a lack of pavements, few tree lined roads and humid temperature are huge deterrants of such trends.

    Thanks for the tip nevertheless.

      Maybe it’s where you live sha #nooffence. You can walk on your street or on a minor road eg those living in estates or Lekki
