There are many demands on moms from childcare to household upkeep and beyond so sometimes it’s hard for mom to find time for herself, let alone start a fitness routine. Taking time to stay fit has so many benefits for mom so Kolcraft has partnered with certified fitness trainer, Cassandra, from Active Moms Club to bring you some very easy-to-incorporate fitness tips for even the  busiest of moms.

We love how clear and practical Cassandra’s tips are. Over the next 3 Mom Mondays we will bring you fitness tips from Cassandra to help jump start your fitness routine. We also will be hosting a giveaway for a Jeep Jogging stroller so you will have lots of reasons to start making time for yourself on a fitness journey.

We love the Jeep Overland Limited Jogging Stroller because you can get fit with baby!

Jeep Overland Limited Jogging Stroller

Some of the features we love:

  1. iBaby sound system easily connects to your iPod or MP3 player so you can listen to your favorite music while on the move.
  2. Speed and distance odometer keeps track of your fitness progress.
  3. Multi-position reclining seat keeps baby comfortable.

It’s easy to enter to win a Jeep Overland Limited Jogging Stroller. Just leave a comment about one thing you learned from Cassandra or tell us what feature of the Jeep Jogging stroller will help you the most on your fitness journey. Your comment will automatically enter you to win the Jeep Jogging stroller. Contest will end July 25th at midnight CST.

    I learned that regular exercise helps mom prepare for labor and delivery and reduces recovery time after delivery. That’s reason enough to stay fit! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I learned from Cassandra that if you have a healthy pregnancy, experts recommend that you exercise at moderate intensity 30 minutes per day. Good to know.

    the jogging stroller sounds great!

  7. Kristi July 12, 2011 at 8:12 am #

    Exercising during pregnancy helps control pregnancy weight gain, circulation, and it helps prepare your body for labor and delivery. Love the stroller!!

  8. Michelle July 12, 2011 at 8:27 am #

    Great points everyone has pulled out!

  9. Shawna July 12, 2011 at 9:33 am #

    I didn’t know 30 minutes of moderate exercise is recommended everyday with a healthy pregnancy. Good to know. This stroller is AMAZING!!! My favorite feature- the speed & distance odometer. I’ve yet to come across an accurate way to measure my distance with my phone but with this it’s right on the stroller! Awesome!

    I take my 9 month old for walks everyday, but with the Jeep Overland Limited Jogging Stroller I would be able to track my progress better. I love that it features a speed and distance odometer!!!

    I love that Cassandra says that a mom can squeeze fitness into her schedule, that is very motivating and I love that. I’ve already started doing this and it is a lot more doable for me. I enjoy it and it has now become a part of everyday me! yay!

  12. KeikoM July 12, 2011 at 11:55 am #

    Cassandra is right when she says that a mom can squeeze fitness into her schedule. Babies nap a lot and I can always get a walk in while he snoozes. The sound system is a plus for baby (lullabies) and the speed and distance odometer is a plus for me. With that feature, I can also challenge myself :).

    I learned from Cassandra that you should participate in moderate to intense exercise about 30 minutes a day to help with muscle tone, proper circulation and promote a healthy weight gain during pregnancy. I would love to have this beautiful jogging stroller to help me return to a healthy post pregnancy weight!

  14. Summer July 14, 2011 at 1:43 pm #

    I love the iBaby sound system. It is so much easier to exercise with the sounds of music. I think that is a fantastic addition to a stroller. :) Thanks for giveaway!

  15. Stacee July 14, 2011 at 7:26 pm #

    Love the speakers and odometer! I would love to start jogging and tone up after losing all my baby weight already!! My husband and I both love jeeps and it would be great for all the Colorado mountains we have here :] Would love to have this!!!

    I didn’t know that exercise during pregnancy can strengthen the pelvic walls. This is huge in recovery post delivery! Thank you for that tip

  17. Julie Grimberg July 18, 2011 at 7:59 am #

    I love that it connects to your ipod cause i love listening to music when I run

  18. Jessie July 18, 2011 at 9:14 am #

    I’m glad to know that you can exercise in 15-20 throughout the day and it’s still beneficial. Sometimes it’s difficult to do 30 – 45 min with children at home.

    • MichelleH July 19, 2011 at 8:22 am #

      We agree Jessie,
      It’s nice to know that even a few minutes still count!

  19. Liz L. July 18, 2011 at 1:38 pm #

    My fav feature is that I can hook up my ipod touch to it!!

  20. Charlotte July 18, 2011 at 6:22 pm #

    I didn’t know that exercise during pregnancy can strengthen the pelvic walls reducing recovery time and that exercising on several shorter times during the day can add up. My favorite feature is the speed & distance odometer.

  21. Heidi July 18, 2011 at 8:27 pm #

    I learned to take it slow and easy, not to rush into trying to get into shape too quickly.

    So informative!! Thank you!

  23. Cheryl July 19, 2011 at 7:52 am #

    Would have love to known that strengthening the pelvic wall while prego with help afterwards would have been a lifesaver! Thanks for the tips! I love that this stroller has adjustable handles this way my husband can jog and push with me!

    I am pregnant with twins & enjoyed getting some tips from this video. I learned that excercise (even if not done before pregnancy) helps maintain healthy weight gain, improves circulation through third trimester, helps my labor & delivery, & my recovery time will be reduced. There also many other benefits of excercise while pregnant that I learned about.

  25. amy warren July 25, 2011 at 9:26 am #

    i love that it has the distance odometer,so i can see my progress, and that the seat reclines to keep my baby comfortable.

  26. Dee July 25, 2011 at 9:46 am #

    Sounds silly, but the deep-looking sun shade will prevent my toddler from interrupting my run by shouting the sun’s in my eyes, Mommy.

  27. anne schott July 25, 2011 at 11:34 am #

    I learned that exercise helps improve circulation and reduces swelling. This will certainly help with swollen ankles in the 3rd trimester!
