I bought a jogging stroller, and it's the best fitness investment I've made. I can't use the excuse that I have my son with me so I cannot exercise b/c I can just put my son in the jogging stroller and walk around the neighborhood. Not only am I getting a good work out with walking, but pushing a 30 lb toddler in that stroller is like pushing 40 lbs for 2 or 3 miles! Also, we live close to his daycare, so some days instead of driving to pick him up, I will walk over there with the stroller, or we will walk to a park near our home. He loves it, and when he sees it, he runs to it and says, "Walk mommy! I'll get my shoes on." Can't say no to that!
I would advise if you get one of these, to get one with swivel wheels. Mine is hell to turn corners with. They can be kind of expensive, but check out craigslist or yard sales for one. I got mine on a community yard sale website and only paid $40.View Thread
