Soon, we were trotting in a circle around the gym, pushing strollers, and mixing up the jog with lunges and butt kicks. We got even warmer when we moved into wall sits, with kids parked facing their moms. The kids looked at us, curious. The class uses resistance bands for strength training, and we did triceps work, plus a couple more rounds of wall sits.
It was a nice day, so we headed outdoors for a jog around the block, then parked the strollers on grass. Teacher Cara DeCarlow showed us how to use our resistance bands for dead lifts and shoulder strengthening.
In between, we sang another song. Mila, 16 months, watched me and her mom, Lisa Martinez, while eating string cheese. Snacks are key for the kids, Martinez said. After skipping up and down the block, we jogged to a new location, where we did squats while singing a song in Spanish about an alligator eating, sleeping and drinking.

We did more strength work and side lunges. During jumping jacks, DeCarlow showed modifications for women coping with pelvic-floor issues. Bridget Dwyer, owner of FIT4MOM Seattle, encouraged women to ask questions about health-care providers if they were having physical challenges post-pregnancy. You do not have to suffer, she said. We jogged back to the gym to circle up for core work, and Dwyer gave additional suggestions for women coping with ab separation, or diastasis recti.

We finished up with burpees and stretching. Most kids had snack cups, which were by then empty and dropping to the floor. At least one kid came out of his stroller, ready for his mom to be done.
