If you’re a parent of young children, you know that hitting the gym isn’t as simple as grabbing your gym bag and heading out the door. This is why many parents are opting for jogging strollers. These types of strollers are built especially well for riding at high speeds and on a diverse terrain. Plus, parents get to keep an active lifestyle while spending time with their children. When investing in a jogging stroller, it’s important to consider your location and lifestyle.
Look for a stroller equipped with a wheel in a fixed position with a little give when running. This type of wheel allows for straight steering without lifting the stroller off the ground while riding over rocks, sand, potholes and turns. The Mountain Buggy Terrain is a great choice.
Look for a narrow stroller with a swivel wheel (like the City Mini Single) to make weaving in and out of crowds easy. A parking brake mechanism is also a smart idea for easily stopping at streetlights.
Look for a stroller equipped with additional stability and safety measures. Models like the Summit X3 Single and the Baby Jogger Summit 360 Double Stroller come with a safety harness, shoulder pads and a swivel wheel to maneuver well over tough terrain.
Look for a lightweight model equipped with a front hand brake. The BOB Ironman and the F.I.T. Single are great choices, as they both are exceptionally lightweight and responsive to many different terrains.
