Large Fitness Space
The first thing you need is a place to assemble all the ladies who want to join the fitness class. Make sure that you have a good space available as there are going to be plenty of strollers that will be parked in that centre.

Toddler Friendly Atmosphere
Make the centre baby friendly with all the necessary precautions. Also keep the needs of the mothers in mind and facilitate them to the fullest of extent. There should be a reasonably big sitting area which allows the mothers to stay for a longer period of time if they have to.

Have a Complete Paper Work
Make sure that you have all the licenses and insurances required to run a stroller stride program. It will vary with wherever you are located but there are always permissions that must be sought and made sure that internationally recognised standards are followed.

Make sure that all mothers involved in the program have checked with their doctors that there is no issue if the baby is taken to such a program. It can help in avoiding many complications later on.

A professional trainer should be hired to design and monitor the program and run it on modern lines. It will also enhance the reputation of the program as women will feel more comfortable in the presence of a qualified professional.
Simpler Work Outs
The workouts have to be simple and not strenuous. Breaks should also be available for women since toddlers can sometimes be needing attention. Breaks will allow the mothers to attend to their babies and comfort them and if someone is lagging behind, they can catch up in the rest time.

Add a Day Care Centre
If possible, add a day care centre to the fitness centre as well. Many working women can drop their babies at the centre and can come back to the centre after work and participate in the program as well.
