CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A mom from White Oak invites other moms to Striders with Stollers.
It's a new program which kicks off at Northgate Mall next week to help trim waistlines and improve health.
Medical reporter Liz Bonis shares details in today's Medical Edge.
Well she keeps me very busy, but I also work full time, so I don't have a whole lot of time to work out, says mother Kim Huber.
As any mom with a one-year-old, Kim Huber knows the challenges of shaping up after having a baby.
I've lost about 14 pounds and I would like to lose another ten if I could, says Huber.
You find the exercise is the hardest part?
Yes, just finding the time, and wanting to do it.
So Huber recently teamed up with Mary Durkin, a mom and fitness specialist, who knows how important it is:
To get out of the house and in the morning, if you come out in the morning, that is the best way to incorporate fitness into your day, says Durkin.
Durkin has just launched a fitness program for new moms called Striders with Strollers.
It's a one-hour workout three-days a week, which incorporates stretching, strolling and strength training.
She says these are three steps any new mom can do almost anywhere.
The goal of the program is to focus on some of those tougher areas for new moms, in addition to the socialization and getting you out.
It also works on that core area. When you sit on a ball, it works on the center of the body and that's the area where you have tough time losing it after you have a baby.
It's guilt free. You are not dropping your baby off or leaving them and worried the whole time. You have peace of mind because your baby is right here with you, says Durkin.
For Kim Huber and Taylor, it's the perfect pairing and the perfect example of how important it is to take care of mom, so mom can take care of the little things that matter most.
Striders with Strollers kicks off Wednesday October 30th at 9 A.M. at Northgate Mall.
Moms can show up and register on-site. It will be offered Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays after that.
Classes cost seven to eight dollars each and the class is right by the malls playland.
