Spring and summer are definitely the seasons when sporting activity is the most accessible for moms and babies. In addition to the adapted mother-baby lessons, here are activities that can be done easily and simply with baby.
A smart way to combine a walk in the park with a workout

To maximize your motivation, come to the park with one or more friends and organize a he althy picnic after your sports session. Locate the TREKFIT park closest to you!
If you are at the very beginning of your postnatal fitness or have diastasisrectus or urinary leakage exercise, it is much better to follow a training adapted to your needs.
Carry baby and enjoy the scenery
Quebec offers several hiking trails thatyou can browse at your own pace. Depending on your fitness level, location, and how much time you have to allocate for hiking, choose the appropriate trailand go on an adventure! Babywearing is undoubtedly the best option for practicing this activity with baby. If you want to carry your baby on your back, he must have reached the stage of motor development that allows him to walk on all fours.
It is essential to respect all the other basic rules to ensure optimal safetyduring the activity.
Please note that you are not welcome on all cycle paths
To avoid the hubbub of the sidewalks, it's tempting to go for a ride on one of the many bike pathsin Quebec. On some busy urban cycle paths, the carriageway has been widened and a corridor provided for pedestrians, but this is quite rare. On most bike paths in Quebec only bicycles are officially allowed but the regulations vary in each municipality. For example, the city of Montreal prohibits access to strollers on its bike paths while the city of Lévis accepts them. In short, before disembarking with your stroller on a cycle path, it is wiser to contact your city to find out if this is allowed or not.
During your walk, remember to keep frequent eye contact with baby to ensure that his waysairways are clear. To avoid injury and discomfort caused by poor posture, be sure to maintain a 90 degree angle between your shoulder, elbow and stroller handle.
