Stroller Strides Fitness

Ask any new mom – it’s a challenge adjusting to motherhood and getting the body back into shape postpartum.  A nationwide stroller fitness program helps moms do just that and classes are growing in the Nashville Area and Middle Tennessee.

 “I’m thrilled to provide these popular fitness classes to the moms of our area,” said Deena Prichard, instructor and official provider of Stroller Strides Nashville.

Stroller Strides is a unique total fitness program created specifically for new parents who bring their children in strollers. The challenging workout utilizes power walking with stops for strength training using resistance tubing, the environment and body weight. All Stroller Strides instructors are nationally certified and have special training in pre and post-natal fitness.

There will be a Stroller Strides training in Nashville September 13 and 14th, 2008. The training is geared for the non-fitness professional to learn the foundations of exercise science. Topics will include anatomy, exercise physiology, pre- and postnatal fitness and how to teach a GREAT Stroller Strides class. The course will be taught by Stroller Strides National Fitness Director, Farel Hruska. The cost of the training is $349 before 8/22/08 and $399 after the deadline.

There are several Stroller Strides franchises and classes in and around Nashville so there are plenty of opportunities for moms to become instructors. For more information and to register contact Deena Prichard at or call 800-682-0420


Stroller Strides, established in 2001, has gained national recognition largely due to the support new mothers receive from the program. In addition to the group exercise class, the program also offers playgroups, social events, and Moms’ night out.
