Stroller Fitness Vs Stroller Bootcamp
Many women ask us what the difference is between Fit 4 Two® Stroller Fitness and Fit 4 Two® Stroller Bootcamp.  Here is the lowdown on these two popular programs: 
Let's start with the similarities...
-Suitable for pre-mobile and mobile babies/tots
-You do not need a jogging stroller
-We do not jog or run with the babies in the strollers*
-Great place to meet other moms
-Usually outdoors
-Usually rain or shine
-Taught by certified pre/postnatal fitness specialist
-Progressions and options are given

Here is how they are different...
Fit 4 Two® Stroller Fitness (multi-level)
For moms who are easing back into fitness as well as moms who have been back at it for a while.
-low impact (impact options given)
-focus on aerobic cardio, muscular endurance, balance and flexibility
-instructor offers progressions to accomodate a variety of levels
-You can register or drop-in
Fit 4 Two® Stroller Bootcamp (high intensity)
For moms who have already eased back into fitness and have been exercising regularly (cardio and muscular endurance) for at least 6-8 weeks
-Multi impact (low,mid high)
-usually in one area (sometime mobile)
-focus on aerobic/anaerobic cardio, muscular, endurance, strength, power, agility, speed, balance and flexibility.
-fitness markers one first and last day
-this really is a 'boot camp'
-registration only (no drop-ins)
-always 2-3 classes/week

Fit 4 Two'ers Cheer for a Birthing Centre in WInnipeg Manitoba! 
The Province of Manitoba announced in January 2010 that they will fund a new birthing centre in Winnipeg to complement the two hospitals with maternity services.
The South Winnipeg Maternity & Birth Centre will provide a home-like atmosphere for women with low-risk pregnancies, as well as postpartum services. Plans for the centre have been spear-headed by the Women's Health Clinic and call for the centre will be staffed by midwives, doulas and associated health support personnel. It will be built at the corner of St Anne's and St Mary's Roads in St Vital (on the site of the former Global TV building) beginning in spring 2011.
"I think it's great that women will have another option for labouring and giving birth, specifically for those who do not wish to give birth at home, but also do not want a 'medical' or 'clinical' birthing experience" said Karine Pelletier, Fit 4 Two participant and mom to Zacharie and Élodie. "I think Winnipeg is moving in the right direction in creating a birth centre where childbirth will be in a more relaxed, non-institutional, home-like environment", added Pelletier.
