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. Though a bunch of reliable places are not currently offering childcare at this time — thanks pandemic! — 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!

Here are five ways to get an effective workout with baby — or toddler — 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. Please drop your favorite in the comments.

1- FIT4MOM 510 (Emeryville, Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito)

Mama can mentally and physically prepare for motherhood, regain her fitness with her little(s) by her side in Stroller Strides or Strides 360, set goals, walk, run, and stroll with Run Club+, or push herself through high-intensity interval training and nutrition coaching in Body Well. FIT4MOM 510 offers a supportive community focused on well-being and fitness. Mamas come for the workout and they stay for the community, leaving classes feeling connected, motivated, and energized. Learn more about the various classes.

2- Momleta (Alameda and Oakland)

With in-person fitness classes at Lake Temescal, 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 >

3- MissFit Bootcamp (Hayward)

Join Coach Emily’s Sunday Funday HIIT Workout with or without your stroller. Each 60-minute workout is comprised of strength training, cardio, and core restoration, all while entertaining little ones with songs and activities. Learn more.

5- 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.

6-13 East Bay Exercise Studios with (suspended) childcare on-site

Unfortunately, these indoor businesses have temporarily suspended onsite childcare. We hope they all come back so we can get back to complaining about core work while a sweet person cuddles babies in the other room.
