RIPON – Stroller Strides, the country’s largest fitness program for new moms, is celebrating its first anniversary in the Manteca and Ripon community.

“We are thrilled to have provided the moms in the Manteca and Ripon area with fitness and social support for 1 year,” said Gina Loretelli, owner of Stroller Strides of Manteca and Ripon. “We feel our success stems from our dedication to helping moms get fit and giving them an outlet to socialize and have fun.”

Since Loretelli opened Stroller Strides in August 2008, women in Manteca and Ripon have been able to get fit through a total fitness program that lets the moms care for their children at the same time.

The program includes power walking and intervals of body toning using exercise tubing and the stroller. Taught by nationally certified instructors, it’s a great workout for any level of exerciser. In 60 minutes, you will get a total body workout improving your cardiovascular endurance, your strength and your flexibility.  The classes are equally beneficial for babies as instructors will weave songs through the workout and incorporate activities to make it fun.

In recognition of the anniversary, Stroller Strides of Manteca and Ripon will be celebrating by hosting a free Family Stroller Strides class followed by a free family barbecue on Saturday, Aug. 1, starting at 10 a.m. at Woodward Park in Manteca. Stroller Strides is also offering local moms a discount registration and first-month-free offer throughout the month of August.

“It’s exciting to be able to offer moms a means of enjoyment and fitness,” said Loretelli.

For more information on how to register for classes, contact Gina Loretelli at 209-380-6126.

Stroller Strides classes are offered in over 800 locations in the United States and Canada. The hour-long classes emphasize cardiovascular activities and muscle-strengthening exercises using resistance bands and strollers, allowing moms to interact with their babies throughout their workout. To further assist mothers in all aspects of their lives, Stroller Strides partners with Pampers®, LUNA® and BOB®. For more information about Stroller Strides, including class locations, visit
