It’s been over a year, and Stefanie Aye says she’s still adjusting to motherhood.
The demands of chasing a 17-month-old toddler around sometimes leaves little time left over for other activities, including working out on a regular basis.
“I’ve been so busy and I’ve been looking for groups to join,” Aye of Imperial said. “With three weddings coming up this year that I’m attending, this is perfect.”
With her daughter Avery safely strapped into her stroller, Aye joins the circle of mothers performing warm-up activities.

The women are part of Stroller Strides, a unique fitness program designed to incorporate the stroller and resistance bands for a full-body workout, all while providing social support for one another.
Local instructor Lindsay Rubin, 28, says after she had her daughter she wasn’t ready to go back to work full time but wanted to stay active. After visiting a class in San Diego, she decided to start her own Stroller Strides franchise in Imperial Valley.
