East Bay Classes for a Great Workout With a Baby in Tow - 510 Families

East Bay Classes for a Great Workout With a Baby in Tow

Want to get a good workout with baby in tow? So do we. Many gyms with onsite childcare have stopped offering that service — thanks pandemic! — so our friends and sponsor at FIT4MOM 510 helped us build this list of five great ways to get a workout with a baby in tow!

From Mom and Baby classes to home-based exercise and the best running trails for a jogging stroller, we’ve got some ideas for you.

FIT4MOM 510 (Emeryville, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito, Oakland)

Mamas come for the workout and they stay for the community, leaving classes feeling connected, motivated, and energized. FIT4MOM is movement in a supportive environment for you and your family. As your child sees you incorporating health and fitness into your lifestyle, they are more likely to do the same. Fit4MOM 510 offers stroller-friendly workouts, mom-only workouts, and personalized small-group coaching. Learn more about the various classes.

Momleta (Alameda, Oakland, North Berkeley, and Walnut Creek)

With in-person Baby Boot Camp classes at Lake Temescal, Kensington Park, and a few other locations, you’ll bring your stroller and make your way around a circuit, led by an instructor. Jog or walk – it’s up to you. The workout includes resistance bands (provided by the instructor) and good old-fashioned lunges and push-ups. Register online for a free trial class. It’s a good place to meet others who are on maternity leave. Website >

Push Your Jogging Stroller (Various)

Between the Bay Trail, some lovely urban parks, and extra-wide recreation paths, there are many places to push your jogging stroller. Depending on your motivation, you can pair your run with errands, a friendly coffee date, or strength training on the trail.

Postnatal Yoga

Most, if not all, postnatal yoga classes expect that your baby would be in class with you. Some studios may provide guidance on baby massage techniques or offer extra pillows for nursing breaks. Since postpartum yoga is a whole other thing, that list is on a different page. Read our list of parent and baby yoga classes >
