Mommy and Me Fitness Classes in Oklahoma

Squeezing in fitness is a challenge for any busy adult but making time to work out while caring for babies and children is a whole new level of challenge. If the idea of adding fitness back into your schedule sounds daunting, don’t despair! For many parents, the answer to this dilemma is to work your baby or child into your fitness routine.

Introducing healthy activities to your child can’t start soon enough, either. According to The Centers for Disease Control, regular physical activity in children and adolescents promotes health and fitness, lower body fat and stronger bones and muscles.

Babies and toddlers who are used to physical activity also show improved cognitive skills when they enter school and a lower risk for depression and other health conditions like obesity.

Including babies and children into your fitness time also creates a stronger bond between parent and child because any time spent sharing activities helps bring you together.

Luckily, lots of places offer “mommy and me” fitness activities, but these activities aren’t just for mommies. Daddies, grandparents, siblings and other caretakers can get involved, get healthy and start a child out on a lifetime of healthy choices.

We’ve compiled some examples of parent and child fitness classes in Tulsa and Oklahoma City that are perfect ways to squeeze in exercise with baby in tow.

Oklahoma City mommy and me classes

Oklahoma City has dozens of options for mommies and kids to get healthy together. From stroller strides to family swim classes, there are plenty of ways to get the family involved in your fitness routine.

FIT4MOM OKC Metro

Don’t let strollers slow you down. Fit4Mom in Oklahoma City offers a variety of classes for new moms and their babies that incorporates strollers into a challenging fitness routine.

The Stroller Strides class promises a total-body conditioning workout full of strength training, cardio and core strengthening. Bring the kids because this hour-long workout includes songs, activities and fun entertainment to keep your little ones busy while you burn off the baby weight.

Fit4Mom also has a stroller barre class and a Run Club that is stroller friendly, so don’t worry about leaving the baby at home when you need to get your sweat on. The company has numerous locations in Oklahoma City. Check out their schedule for class times and locations.

Yoga Bliss

You don’t need to be a new mother to get all the benefits of yoga at Yoga Bliss. Mommy and me classes allow moms and their children ages 6 months to 6 years bond together in mat time that includes meditation, relaxation and yoga postures designed to strengthen the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.

The little ones get all the good stuff from yoga too, which aids with better sleep, digestion and relaxation for kids. Fun songs and story time are included, and the class is a perfect way to socialize with other parents.

Baby Bootcamp Norman

Baby Bootcamp is designed to help mothers recover from birth and strengthen their core, abdominal muscles and pelvic floor. True to its name, the 60-minute stroller bootcamp classes are perfect for pregnant moms, new moms and moms with one or more stroller-aged children.

The class has interval training, strength training and core training for a total body workout using strollers that also has educational interaction for stroller-age children.

Goldfish Swim School

Get ready to dive into fun family fitness! Family swim classes at Goldfish Swim School are a great way to bond with your child while learning a valuable skill. Because your babe is with you all the way, they can be introduced to the water in a safe environment.

The Family Swim classes aren’t just about burning calories in a warm pool, they are also a way to determine if you and your child are ready for swim classes.

Metro Gymnastics

Metro Gymnastics has several parent/child classes, so put on those tights and get to tumbling. The Mini Mights Parent-Tot class for children ages “walking to 3” is a parent and child class that covers basic gymnastic skills, and helps with the development of a child’s eye-hand coordination, eye-foot coordination, depth perception, balance and more.

Tulsa Mommy and Me classes

Tulsa also has a wide variety of places where moms and dads can squeeze in a little fitness with their children. These classes are especially popular among Tulsa parents.

Sky Fitness and Wellbeing

Imagine stretching out on the mat for a challenging yoga workout that’s great for your kids too.

The mommy & me yoga at Sky Fitness offers a short partner yoga class with poses that are appropriate for adults and children. Circle time is a bonding period that’s included in the yoga class, and mothers are welcome to bring more than one child.

Motion Tulsa

Parkour, martial arts and kickboxing at Motion Tulsa are for both parents and children. While your child is learning to tumble and jump obstacles or learn discipline in martial arts, you’ll be sweating off extra pounds and getting stronger in the kickboxing class. Working out can improve the confidence, strength, flexibility and skill of both parents and children at this Tulsa-based gym.

Fleet Feet Tulsa

Lace up your running shoes, grab the stroller and get ready to burn off calories and get healthy. Fleet Feet Tulsa’s Strollin' Moms fitness group lets moms, dads, grandparents or caretakers join group walks or runs. Strollers are welcome at all workouts and the program is open to parents of any fitness level. The social aspect of the group fitness class is a fun way to get to know other moms and dads as well.

Fitness on The Green 

Guthrie Green in Tulsa is a thriving community space that also offers free fitness classes to the community. Bring the kids and babies out for yoga, barre, cardio classes and more. Thanks to Fowler Toyota of Tulsa and partners like YMCA of Greater Tulsa, Barre3, Pure Barre and Total Blast Zumba, all the fitness classes on the Green are free for families.


Be sure to check with your favorite gym, yoga studio or other active places to find out if they offer classes you can do with your little one. If group classes aren’t your speed, talk with your INTEGRIS OB-GYN about ways you can incorporate fitness with your child into your parenthood routine.
