Summer is just around the corner! With the arrival of summer comes warm weather. With warm weather comes pool days, and with pool days comes the showing off of areas that have been covered up by loose and oh so comfy winter layers. That’s right, swimsuit season is upon us! Putting on a swimsuit can test anyone’s confidence. Even if you are totally comfortable in your body, (which I hope you are, because you’re beautiful!), you probably still have a bit of that fight or flight reaction ready to jump into gear as you step out feeling more exposed than usual! Now how about those people that have had babies recently!? Five months ago, five years ago, or 15 years ago, how ever long it’s been, having babies has most likely changed your body one way or another! Not only have our bodies changed to bring these miracles into the world, but our whole mindset about self-care often changes too. It can be hard to squeeze in time to take care of yourself and get in a workout when you feel like you barely have time to go to the bathroom in peace some days!
My third child was born 5 months ago, so I was super excited when Nicole from Aaptiv reached out to me to try a free trial of the Aaptiv app. Aaptiv is an on-demand audio fitness that combines the guidance of a trainer with a perfect playlist as you work out. They’ve even added a new section specifically for mother’s to be and have broken it down into your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester. My favorite section these days? Under the maternity programs they also have stroller workouts! Anyone else have an adorable five month old that hates sleeping in their crib for longer than 45 minutes? That’s where a stroller, Aaptiv, and a beautiful summer day can take a not so awesome situation, and help this mama stay sane!
While the girl’s play outside, I can push the little one in the stroller and complete different workouts that are targeted, concise, and perfect for completing with baby. The Aaptiv personal trainer explains things well and keeps things moving, while the music is enjoyed by all in listening distance!
We have a beach vacation right around the corner, so this couldn’t have come at a better time. I get to squeeze in some great workouts, AND keep the baby happy. It’s a win win, mamas! There is a large variety of options from quick seven minute workout, to marathon training, walking, meditation, you name it, they have a trainer and a playlist! I’ve really been enjoying my free trial of the Aaptiv cardio personal trainer app!

Reu’s pretty worn out from the stroller workout too… 😉
