Here is my guide to choosing the best jogging stroller for you, even if you might not consider yourself a runner.
So, who should invest in a jogging stroller?
Anyone who is invested in improving their health and fitness levels.
I see it this way, getting a jogging stroller as well as or instead of a standard stroller is an investment in your health – much the same way that a gym membership is.
Purchasing a jogging stroller may well be more cost effective than a gym membership in the long run since it should last more than a year and the convenience of having it there would make exercise a lot easier to commit to. A great option to keep fit after having your baby and lose the extra weight.
Getting out with baby in the jogging stroller and going for a brisk walk or jog will certainly be a flexible workout for you but also a great stress reliever too – as a mum of 3 boys 5 and under I can assure you that you WILL need stress relief!
Being the investment in your health that it is you should absolutely consider to buy the best that you can afford – making sure that it has all the features that you need.
Some general requirements to consider first:
- Do you need a single or double stroller?
- What is your ideal price bracket?
Additional features for consideration include:
- Fixed or move-able front wheel ? – To have both options is ideal.
- Sun canopy for baby?
- What is the weight? – Too lightweight is not good for stability.
- What is the folding size and ease?
- Is there a handbrake for downhill running?
- Comfort of child?
