Fit Mama Registry

[fa icon="calendar"] Sep 27, 2017 5:13:22 PM / by Shelley Hopper

We've all seen the new mama must-have lists filled with breast pumps, nursing pillows, bath seats, and booger-suckers, but what about a list of items for the fit mom looking to start an exercise program post-doctor clearance? Don't worry, Mama, we got you!

We rounded up a handful of our favorite things that the fit mama needs in her life. Whether you're a new mom who can't wait to join Stroller Strides, a seasoned mama who wants to welcome fitness into her life, or a mom whose kiddos are in school, but is ready to workout at one of our Body Back classes, at the gym, or at home, this is for you!

1. FIT4MOM Muscle Tank + Matching Baby Onesie

 

Why we love it: 

Because of the cute design, obviously, and the fact you can match your babe(s). And, as adorable we think this tank with matching onesie is, that’s not the only reason we adore it. The fabric of this tank is SO SOFT and the cut is beyond flattering to every body type. It’s perfect for a workout paired with shorts or leggings, an errand paired with jeans, or even as part of your jammies: a 3 -1 mom win! You can get this tank + onesie at SHOP.FIT4MOM.COM coming soon in October, but can shop a handful of other tank designs here now and sign up for FIT4MOM emails to be the first to know of this cute pair's launch!

2. SWELL Water Bottle

 

Why we love it:

There are 134879 water bottles on the market. We’re huge fans of Swell (and Yeti) because they stay remarkably cold (or hot) for literally hours. For example, I filled my bottle with ice water when I got to work and at the end of the day forgot it in my car. The next day, it was still ice cold. Can’t beat that!  They are stainless steel, so BPA-free and easy to sanitize.  AND they come in super cute patterns too, so there’s one for every mama’s style.

3. Klorane Dry Shampoo

 

Why we love it:

Every mom knows that by Friday, 90% of her hair is dry shampoo. With that, she has no time to try 39487 brands to see which ones makes her hair least greasy, the least chalk-coated, or the least crunchy. That's why we love Klorane. We asked about 20 friends which dry shampoo were their favs and literally every single one said Klorane. So, boom.

4. Ergobaby 360 Carrier: Cool Air Mesh:

 

 

Why we love it:

It seems ergobaby carriers remain a top pick among moms everywhere, especially active mamas. We hand-picked the cool air mesh version because it helps keep you AND baby cool, whether you're wearing your little babe to workout or just run errands.

5. BOB Revolution Flex Lunar Stroller

 

 

Why we love it:

As always, BOB strollers never disappoint as they are literally manufactured for an active human with no other stroller on the market like it. The Lunar goes above and beyond our expectations with its glowing/reflective capabilities. Running in the early mornings or late evenings when it's dark can be scary for mom/dad/babe, but the Lunar makes it extra safe on the road before the sun comes up, or after it has set. With Halloween right around the corner, the Lunar is the perfect stroller to take trick-or-treating! Safety first, as they say, but function is equally matched with the BOB Revolution Flex Lunar Stroller.

6. Fitness Watch

 

We had mamas vote, and the two fitness watches that went neck-n-neck were the Apple Watch Series 3 and the Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch. 

 

Why we love them:

We love these two fitness watches because they're functional yet fashionable, making them the perfect accessory, whether you need a timer for a HIIT workout, a way to track your steps, or want to measure your miscellaneous fitness stats. The Apple Series 3 (GPS) features include some of the following:

  • Built-in GPS and GLONASS
  • Barometric altimeter
  • Capacity 8GB
  • Heart rate sensor
  • Accelerometer and gyroscope
  • Water resistant 50 meters
  • Ion-X strengthened glass
  • Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz)
  • Bluetooth
  • Up to 18 hours of battery life

The Fitbit Blaze shines with these following features and definitely seems to outperform the Apple Watch when it comes to fitness (and it's less expensive):

  • PurePulse™ Heart Rate
  • On-screen workouts
  • Smartphone notifications
  • Cardio fitness level
  • Multi-sport tracking & connected GPS
  • Guided breathing sessions
  • All-day activity & sleep 
  • Music control
  • Color touchscreen
  • Reminders to move
  • Long battery life - up to 5 days*!

7. SKLZ Trainer Mat

 

 

Why we love it:

"With exercises printed directly on it, the SKLZ Trainer Mat clearly shows the muscles being targeted and provides a more complete, efficient full-body workout" (SKLZ, 2017). As busy mamas, we know that practical items become a necessity. Having workouts and moves printed right on a mat means we can work out on-the-go without worrying about downloadable workouts or bringing printables with us, whether we're working out in the living room, at a park, or a day we can't make it to Stroller Strides or Stroller Barre with our little(s). Shop here for 25% off select SKLZ items.

8. Dr. Teal's Epsom Salt Sooth & Sleep Lavendar Soaking Solution (48oz)

 

Why we love it:

 

"Lavender essence has soothing properties that are known to encourage a better night’s sleep. Dr. Teal’s Epsom Salt Soaking Solution combines magnesium sulfate, which is known to revitalize tired, achy muscles and refresh skin’s appearance, with luxurious essential oils to soothe the senses and provide relief from stress." (Target, 2017). This blend of lavender and the power or Epsom salt make this the perfect "me time" for mama after a workout (and whether that means you made it to one of our classes, or just spent the day chasing around your toddler or nursing your baby).

9. SKLZ Mini Bands Multi-Resistance Training Band Set

 

 

Why we love these:

 

"Built to enhance strength and endurance levels, the mini bands are an effective and versatile training tool that can be used anywhere." (SKLZ, 2017). These gems are a go-to in all our classes, and we also get feedback that they're mamas' favs when working out at home too! Shop here for 25% off select SKLZ items.

10. Maternity Pip & Vine by Rosie Pope Seamless Nursing Sports Bra

 

Why we love it:

It's hard enough to find a comfortable bra that fits well during pregnancy (you know, one that doesn't give you heartburn because of an underwire, smashes the girls, or actually holds you in place during a workout). When we came across this gem that's perfect for pregnancy, nursing, AND postpartum life, in general, (including workouts!), we were hooked. Another less expensive option is this Hanes Nursing Sports Bra.
