I can’t believe it’s almost mid-February. This winter has flown by and I think it’s in large part due to the fantastic weather we’ve had here in London. It doesn’t really feel like we’ve had much of a winter, and now we’re already talking spring.
Spring means that summer is just around the corner and summer means swimsuit season. Are you ready? Do you have some winter hibernation pounds to shed?
Now is the perfect time to get in shape and I’m happy to share a fun and calorie smashing class with you that will help you do just that. I’ve been working with a wonderful personal trainer over the winter, Bernice Robinson, and I’ve got exciting news.
Bernice, who was formerly part of reBirth Wellness Centre, has recently opened a new studio called Bernice Robinson Personal Training. Bernice specializes in pre and postnatal fitness and has been teaching a Stroller Personal Training Program for seven years. This program is unique in that you can include your child(ren) in your exercise routine. So no more excuses that you don’t have a sitter or that you don’t have the time. This class has been designed specifically for moms.
I was really interested in learning more about this class so I did a quick Q & A with Bernice and wanted to share the details with you.
What is the Stroller Personal Training Program?
B: It’s a fantastic way to shed that extra baby weight, build muscle, increase endurance and overall strength. While you are improving your physical strength you are also bonding with other mother’s and building lasting friendships. The babies love it also and the best part is you get to clear your head while challenging yourself.
How is the class performed?
B: The class is performed in an interval, progressive training style stopping along the way to perform cardio and strength circuits. The intensity of the classes increases as we get further into the program. By the end you will be amazed at how great you feel, how good you look and how strong you become physically and mentally. Most moms boast it’s the best shape they have ever been in. No two classes are ever the same so you’re constantly surprising your muscles and yourself.
If you want to lose weight, feel fabulous and change your life completely, join Stroller Personal Training. Work with Bernice and hang on her every word. She knows what she is talking about and I am living proof! I am at a weight that I have not been since high school. I couldn’t be happier and I have Bernice to thank for it!!!!! – Jennifer Phillips
Do you need a special kind of stroller to participate in the program?
B: No, you can use any type of Stroller.
What if I’m not at the same fitness level as the other class members?
B: You can go at your own pace and you will never be left behind. We stop and start along the way performing various exercises.
I have a four-year-old, is she too old to participate?
B: This program is suitable for children of all ages. Toddlers are welcome too! My 3-year-old comes out and she loves it.
Q: When does the program begin and when are the classes?
B: Spring Stroller will be held Wednesdays and Fridays beginning April 4, 2012. Departure time will be 9:30 a.m. and you should arrive a bit earlier to get set up and nurse if you have to. Note: Nursing Mammas may want to double up on the support. Stroller classes will run until November 2, 2012.
Due to the program’s popularity and our mild temperatures it has been requested to start a winter prep program to get us geared up for the spring. We will meet Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 a.m. at Gibbon’s Park. If it is snowing we will forfeit the class due to slippery conditions. Your classes will be carried over into the spring sessions if need be.
Classes will begin next Tuesday Feb 7th (happy Valentine’s Day) and run for 8 weeks right up until spring Stroller so no one will lose their momentum.
What else can we expect from this program?
B: Throughout the course of the program we will discuss nutrition plans, supplements and share clean eating recipes that you can use to accompany your exercise program.
Q: How can we register and what are the costs?
B: Classes are 90 minutes in length, twice a week and sessions run 8 weeks in length. The cost is 160.00 + H.S.T. City Mom readers will receive a 10% discount.

Thank you to Bernice for sharing this wonderful program and the exciting discount with City Mom readers. Here’s to a fit spring and summer!
